Is Castor oil good for hair loss?


Answer by  NGoodson (3395)

Many people claim that Castor oil helps with hair loss and regrowth when used regularly. You have to leave it on your scalp for about 10 minutes and should notice results after 6 applications or so.

Yes, many people have reported than massaging castor oil into the scalp helps regrow hair. You can add a few drops of rosemary oil to the castor oil to speed up the results. This remedy can used for scalp hair, eyebrows and eyelashes (please do not get into eyes). This remedy worked for me when rogaine did not.

Castor oil is supposed to help hair growth. It has been used for many years as a home remedy for hair growth and is also found in eyelash growth serums.


Answer by  chrisjensd (703)

Yes it is. You should massage it into your scalp 2-3 times a week or before every shampoo. For best results, heat it first and apply while warm. Clip up your hair; wrap your head in plastic and leave on for 20 minutes, then shampoo. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.

I have never heard of any studies done that proves that Castor oil is good for hair loss. It is made for constipation and even has been known to induce labor in pregnant women close to their due date but it seems like a very messy idea for your head.


Answer by  leann89 (169)

Castor oil is too thick to be used on hair. You should try using a small amount of something like extra virgin olive oil first which is natural, lighter in texture, and will help soften and grow the hair as well. Additionally, oils are typically used "to seal" in moisturizers so they should be used as a moisturizer first.
