One surprising remedy that many people have found to be beneficial is castor oil for hair growth, and there are a number of health benefits that castor oil provides to the body. Castor oil is obtained from castor “beans”, which are really seeds more than “beans”.
Castor oil has many benefits; specifically the Omega-9 fatty acids that the “beans” contain are beneficial for hair. This specific type of fatty acid helps keep the hair and scalp from drying out by providing additional moisturizer. Hair growth is promoted when it is directly applied to the scalp because of this moisturizing effect, and additionally it tends to help thicken the hair.
Since castor oil tends to be very thick oil, by mixing it with Sweet Almond Oil helps lighten the viscosity of the oil making it much easier to spread on the head or give a head massage. There is even an added benefit - the almond oil has a very pleasant scent. Yet another benefit is that the castor oil can be used on the ends of the hair, which helps reduce split ends that results in that damaged, frizzy look.
