Castor oil is considered to be one of the most effective oils for hair thinning and hair loss.
Two weeks ago I met a new friend. And she, as me, is quite passionate about natural hair care. So it was like meeting your hair-mate. Let me tell you she has lovely hair – thick, black, soft and shiny. We had a lot to talk about – fingernail rubbing, henna packs, oil massage and other hair stuff. During the chat she also mentioned about her experience of using castor oil on her eye brows; she noticed that in couple of months time of using this oil her eye brows had grown thicker.
I have heard a thousand times that castor oil can make your hair grow and reduce hair fall. But this knowledge was just sitting dormant, until recently when this new friend told me of her experience.
Men typically require fewer personal care products. I’ve shared the natural shaving options that my husband uses, and this is another recipe for men that I just had to share.
Many men notice thinning or balding hair as they age. Women typically only get the pleasure of this experience after a pregnancy (so much fun- you just created an entire human being and now you get to lose your hair too!).
When experimenting with natural ways to encourage hair regrowth for myself after a pregnancy, I realized that one of my concoctions would be just as effective on men and that many guys might like some help to avoid hair loss.

What is Castor Oil? Why is it Good for Hair?
Castor oil is extracted from the bean or seed of a castor plant. Historically, it has largely been used as a laxative or to induce or speed labor in pregnant women. This oil was also used as a form of punishment. Castor oil was used by Benito Mussolini and the facist regime during the WWII era. Mega doses were orally administered to dissenters. This caused the victim to have bouts of explosive diarrhea, sometimes even dying from dehydration. Typically these mega doses were accompanied by a thorough beating which didn’t help matters one bit. Even the victims who survived has to suffer the humiliation of the whole ordeal.
Fortunately, nowadays, castor oil is no longer used to as a method of punishment. It does however have a wide range of uses in medicine. It is used to help treat fungal infections, immune disorders, cancer, HIV, food additive, mold inhibitor, warts, boils, ringworm, and a number of other applications. In many cases, castor oil is added to a modern drug to increase its effectiveness. Castor oil is an excellent excipient and sees widespread use for this mechanism. Castor oil is even used as a bio-based polyol in the polyurethane industry. It makes a durable coating and/or packaging material for food items.
