What is castor oil?
Castor oil (ricinus oil) is an oil produced from the seed of the castor plant. It is a very thick oil with a consistency like honey or syrup.
The oil is known to strengthen the hair because it contains a wide variety of minerals and fatty acids that are important for growing healthy and strong hair.
What is so great about castor oil?
This thick oil is a source of monounsaturated, 18-carbon fatty acid, that is, an omega-9 fatty acid. Among these fatty acids are ricinus oil acid, castor oil has a very high content of ricinus oil acid. This acid is antibacterial and therefore very effective against bacteria and fungi. This can help keep any fungi or bacteria from preventing healthy hair growth. Because the oil is also very thick, it can help prevent hair loss.
Omega 9 fatty acids are nourishing to both hair and hair follicles and have a unique ability to be deeply penetrating. This allows the oil to bring nourishment deep into the pores and hair follicles that produce hair. That's why castor oil has been praised around the world to be an effective ingredient to strengthen hair, lashes and brows in a natural and safe way.
Does castor oil help eyelashes grow longer?
