How to apply castor oil
It’s best to use castor oil as a hair mask. This is particularly helpful if you’re trying to regrow
hair or give it more moist and shine.
1. Castor oil has a thick consistency, so you can mix it with coconut oil, olive oil or jojoba oil in a half and half ratio. This will make the mask easier to distribute throughout your hair.
2. Use your fingers or a brush and start applying it onto your scalp with circular motions. This gentle massage increases the blood circulation, rejuvenates the hair, and stimulates hair growth.
3. Part hair into sections and apply the oil (mixture) to each section until all your hair is covered properly and evenly.
4. Wrap your hair in a warm towel (you can also use a shower cap) and leave it for two to eight hours. You can also leave it over night. This will give the oil enough time to penetrate the follicles and hydrate your scalp and hair thoroughly.
5. Wash your hair as usual using shampoo and conditioner. Make sure you rinse all the oil out of your hair.
How often should you use castor oil?
This depends on your objective and type of hair.
If your aim is to treat hair loss
, you will need to do it at least twice weekly, but even better if you can do it three or four times per week for several weeks.
For split ends and increased shine, you can use the oil as a conditioner once weekly. Be careful not to use too much of it (a pea-sized amount should do) or you can end up with an over-oily scalp.
For best results use unrefined castor oil, as it contains more nutrients and healing properties.
