Castor oil originates from India and comes from the plant Ricinus Communis. Scientists recognize this plant as both dangerous and beneficial. It is dangerous because it has strong toxic properties, but castor oil isn’t dangerous because of the extraction process. It has been used since ancient times to help people who had problems with constipation, but in modern days it is mostly applied on the body on troublesome areas. It is highly effective and it is not expensive. So, if you are looking for a cheap and natural remedy for skin and hair problems, castor oil is the right product.
Castor oil has a high gloss effect, so it is best if you add a tiny bit to the ends of your hair. Put two drops on your hands and then you can smooth through the ends.
If you want to regrown your hair, you can use it as a scalp treatment. Because it can be difficult to get it on the scalp, you can add some apricot kernel, melted coconut oil or another light oil to help you spread it enough.
If you’re looking to thicken your hair, you can use pure castor oil with a light hand. You can also apply this oil on your eyelashes to strengthen and thicken them.

– Helps the intestinal system
– Skin problems
