Castor oil to treat alopecia naturally

Used alone or to dilute essential oils, vegetable oils have stimulating, toning and nutritive properties that are particularly beneficial for hair health. Castor oil is the most commonly used vegetable oil for hair loss. Let's take a closer look.



What is castor oil?

Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the seeds of castor, a tropical shrub. From Egypt to China, it has been used for centuries for its fortifying properties.
Its chemical composition is complex: it is rich in fatty acids, especially ricinoleic acid, which is nourishing and repairing, and in vitamin E, which is antioxidant.

Castor oil to fight baldness

Perfect for repairing and nourishing dry, devitalized, fine, brittle or frizzy hair, castor oil is also known to stimulate hair growth.
Castor oil has a very viscous and sticky appearance, so it is often used mixed with other more fluid vegetable oils, such as mustard, jojoba and argan oils, also known for their stimulating and repairing activities.
It can also be used to dilute essential oils known for their anti-hair loss benefits, such as Atlas Cedar, Bay of Saint Thomas and Grapefruit essential oils.
For women looking for a natural treatment against hair loss, essential oils have the advantage of stimulating the scalp, as well as sheathing and repairing the lengths.

How to use castor oil against baldness

To fight against hair loss, castor oil should be mixed with other vegetable oils to make it less viscous.
It is then applied directly to the scalp by massaging with the fingertips for a few minutes, preferably one hour before shampooing. Massaging the scalp boosts hair regrowth and improves the penetration of the active ingredients applied to the scalp.
This massage, which also has relaxing properties, is done daily with small circular movements, from the nape of the neck to the forehead.
It is important to follow the precautions for use and to ask for advice from a health professional before using.
