Look at the HEALTH BENEFITS Of CASTOR OIL
with Nyamushagi Bridget
So I was going through my natural regimens recipes and I found castor oil, hmmm, I thought to myself castor oil, what could I do with this and guess what, there is so much more than we all thought. Pure castor oil is extracted from the seeds and it has a number of benefits, you’ll be glad you read this because besides being natural with no chemical compounds, it delivers almost on effect
It contains omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids that help rejuvenate your body’s cells and allows you grow healthier cells, whether it’s the hair or skin. Castor oil is filled with some excellent vital nutrients such as vitamin E and minerals. It also has anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities. It’s really the whole package.
While applying, castor oil is rather thick and may be a little hard to apply to hair even to skin, but it makes it all worthwhile when you see the results so don’t give up on the first try. You may mix it with a lighter oil such as olive. This is what castor oil will do for your hair:
Repair hair loss
You’ll agree with me hair loss is the most mutual problem today. Loss can be caused by a number of reasons like hairstyling, infection and dandruff. But, when you start to use castor oil this loss can be stopped. Just take some castor oil, and massage it to your scalp and roots. Wash it off, after leaving it for an hour or two. Ricinoleic acid that is present in castor oil helps to protect your hair and stimulates circulation of nutrient rich blood to your scalp. You can do this at home or best when you go for your steaming treatment.
Stimulate hair growth
Looking to grow your hair in a little time, then castor oil is what you’re looking for. When you use this oil regularly on your scalp, it boosts blood circulation to the follicles, leading to hair growth. It even supplies omega-6 essential fatty acids that is needed to grow healthy hair. Apply the oil and leave it overnight, covered with a cap for deep penetration. Wash it off the next day.
Make hair dark and shiny
Almost everyone wants black and lustrous hair. But due to many reasons such as weather, chemical treatments and all, hair losses its shine. Castor oil can help to increase the shine in your hair. It has the ability to coat your hair shaft, and seal the moisture in. This leaves your hair with shinier and silkier surface. You can mix a small quantity of hair oil with your hair serum or mousse, and apply it evenly on your hair. You can also heat up some castor oil and apply it on your hair. Then wrap your hair in a towel. After a few washes you can feel your locks getting shinier.
Provide thickness to hair
Thin locks are a sign of damaged hair. Hair thinning can lead to hair loss. Castor oil not only prevents hair damage, but also helps in providing thickness to your beautiful hair. Regular use of this oil promotes thickness
Reduce split ends and hair breakage
Split ends and hair breakage are a sign of unhealthy hair. Since castor oil is filled with essential nutrients like vitamin E, amino acids, and omega-6 fatty acids, it can help you to put a stop to split ends and breakage. The oil penetrates deep into your scalp and smoothens out rough hair cuticles. So, spread the oil evenly on your hair and wash it after few hours. Since, castor oil is very sticky, you can also mix it with lighter oils like olive or jojoba for easier application.
Condition and moisturize hair
Natural omega-9 acids present in this oil helps to lock the moisture in your hair and scalp. So, it is a great conditioner for your hair. You should apply castor oil in your hair at least 15 minutes before using a shampoo. This will help to make your hair smooth and soft. You can also add castor oil to your favorite hair conditioner to soak in its benefits. Other than this, apply very little amount (one or two drops) of castor oil in your hair each night as a part of your daily hair conditioning routine.
With love, care and a little castor oil in your life everything you’ve ever dreamed of in your hair can be a reality. However for overall health of hair, we suggest that you:
- Invest some money into a steaming treatment, its best because it’s washed out of your hair leaving it natural, free and healthy to grow. Plus the hair gets to be absorb moisture during steaming. Miadi has proven outstanding on African hair textures even with thick growth.
- Wash hair every week, with steaming treatment or at least once every 2 weeks. Most people wonder why their hair won’t grow or it breaks or it feels dry and damaged. Well most times its pores blocked with dirt and lack of moisture. And yet we know nothing moisturizes like a nice deep wash. So wash your hair regularly, and steaming treatment with the steamer is best because it allows for hair to absorb water and you can imagine the result. avoid the shower cap because it doesn’t add any more moisture to your hair
- Always buy from a pharmacy or a trusted department store, make sure the seal isn’t broken and the expiry date is well read
A wise lady once said if you want something you have to go get it, the same rules apply for good hair, it’s not gonna happen when you’re seated on the shelf, so take baby steps. The castor oil incidence should take effect in at least three weeks.
Healthier, stronger and more beautiful hair awaits you. uwezo
