  • Thickening & Regrowing Hair, Eyelashes & Eyebrows

    Castor oil is often overlooked for its benefits for the skin and hair because of its extremely thick and sticky consistency. However, if you™re looking for a cheap, natural remedy for several common skin and hair complaints, then castor oil is definitely worth your time.


    Castor oil for regrowing and thickening hair, eyelashes and eyebrows
    I first stumbled on castor oil as a remedy for regrowing thin eyebrows. I had over-plucked my brows back in the nineties when it was the hip thing to have pencil thin brows, and they never did quite recover. It became necessary for me to pencil in the œbald spots and I missed the natural look of real hair where these spots were missing.
    I read about castor oil as a remedy for thinning brows and hair, and thought I'™d try it. I bought a hexane free, organic and cold pressed castor oil and started applying it to my eyebrows every night after washing my face. After about three months, I noticed my brows were noticeably thicker (and they seemed to be growing in darker as well), and attributed it to the nightly application of castor oil.
    I not the only one that this has worked for. So, why would castor oil help you regrow hair both on your head and the other two important places, the eyebrows and the eyelashes.
    Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid. This acid is a very effective natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. This can help keep any fungus or bacteria from inhibiting hair growth. Since the oil is also very thick, it may help to prevent hair loss simply by helping to coat the hair and protect it from falling out.
    Castor oil is also high in omega 9 fatty acids, which are nourishing to both the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin. Castor oil has a unique ability to be deeply penetrating, and this helps it to deliver its nourishment deeply into the pores and the follicles that produce hair.
    It also has a high gloss, so it lends a lush glossiness and shine to the hair. A little goes a long way, and it is best to only add a tiny bit to the very ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you Ãre just looking for a natural hair smoother.
    Simply put about two drops on your hands and rub, then smooth through the ends. If you use too much, there is a fine line between subtle shine and a heavy greasiness so go very light until you figure out the amount that works right for your hair type.
    If you Ùre looking to regrow the hair on your head, you can use castor oil as a scalp treatment. However it can be tricky to get on the scalp without thinning it out with a lighter oil. You can add some melted coconut oil, apricot kernel oil or another lighter oil to help get it spreadable enough.
    If youÙre simply looking to help thicken hair that is thinning at the edges of your hairline, you can use pure castor oil, with a light hand of course. Another use is to apply the oil to eyelashes to help thicken and strengthen them, as well as to help prevent thinning and shedding.

    Castor oil for scar tissue reduction and shiny, smooth lips
    Many attest to the wonders castor oil offers for keloid types of scars and other scars that involve a lot of hardened scar tissue. This is presumably due to its ability for deep penetration through multiple skin layers.
    Because castor oil softens the skin so much, the thought is that this softening helps to break down deep scar tissue so it may be smoothed out. In addition, castor oil has shown promise as a white blood cell stimulating agent. Studies have also shown that castor bean oil helps reduce the inflammatory response in subcutaneous tissue. This may be why it seems to speed wound healing, and may also contribute to its ability to reduce scarring more quickly.
    Castor oil is also excellent for the lips. Our lips needs constant protection against the elements. Although our lips regenerate and recover quickly, they also dry out and begin to peel when they are dehydrated.
    Castor oil not only smooths the lips with fatty acids, but it also helps protect them due to its naturally thick and immovable nature. In other words, it doesn't budge without being wiped off. It also imparts a natural shine to the lips, which makes it ideal for both improving the appearance and health of the lips.

        I just brought some Sunny Isle Lavender Jamaican black castor oil this weekend. That post just reinforced my purchase. Currently I apply coconut oil to my hair daily especially my ends. Im glad to see that it works well with coconut oil. Thanks for the information. Sent from my SM-T217S using CurlyNikki App

          I use the Sunny Isle Extra Dark Jamaican Black Castor Oil, and it works really well. I've never tried the Lavender, but I've heard good things. Did you know that they have a Coconut Jamaican Black Castor Oil? It's alot lighter, and may even help to replace your need to use both oils separately.

        I got the lavender sunny Isle but it was kind of stinky so I put lemongrass oil in and I use it just for my hair. I got the tropic Isle and use it on my lashes. I can tell they're thicker and longer. It's been about a
        month.

          I've been using regular castor oil for almost a year now (cold pressed, yellow) and I've noticed increase hair growth on my eyelashes. I've always had short eyelashes, but they're a bit more fuller and longer. Thank you for this post! To be honest, I don't know if castor oil has helped my edges and it may have helped my eyebrows a bit, but keep in my mind I'm not consistent when using it (probably 3-5 times a week).

              EVOO & JBCO does wonders for my hair, nails and eyelashes/brows. My hair and nails grow quicker and when it grows, it grows extremely THICK. I put the word thick in capitals because it's the truth. I just take a little spooly (you can purchase a pack at your local sally's or dollar store) and I dip it in which ever oil I have at hand and I just comb through my lashes and brows. For my nails, I just take a dime size and rub it on my cuticles. For my hair, I either do hot oil treatments before wash day or I apply to my scalp every other day. My hair loves it, it soaks it right up! My eyelashes and brows grow thicker and my nails are longer, I don't need to wear fake nails anymore.

                  FYI. Castor oil carries ricinoleic acid and omega- 6 essential fatty acids, which accelerate blood circulation to the scalp, hence increasing hair growth. It works on nourishing the scalp and strengthening the roots with the help of essential nutrients. Tip: Mix some coconut oil with castor oil in a small bowl.
