I always use castor oil to remove eye makeup and my lashes are always long and thick. I use unrefined, cold-pressed, clear castor oil from Heritage Products at the health food store.

Aveda Anti-Humectant's main ingredient is castor oil also.

Default Re: My Theory on castor oil in regards to growth/thickness...

I am a little confused, are you ladies drinking the castor oil or applying it to your hair like the way you would use a sealant oil? I know castor oil can be consumed but is there a difference in the one that is for your scalp and for consumption. Is the castor oil that I buy in the beauty supply store for consumption?

Thanks in advance!

I have an idea... Lipase is in charge of breaking down fats and what not. Well if you used something on your scalp that could help break down fatty molcules then you would be aidding the devilery of fat souble vitamins and proteins. Fatty molecule are large and if you use something to break them down then you have more access to fat soluble vitamins like vitamin a and vitamin e which we all know help aid growth. Not to mention this would aid the delivery of fatty acids to out follicules all the while dissolving build up of sebum which would also have dead skin cells and such in it as well. This would also increase the circulation this making it a better growing situation. We all know that castor oil has benefical fatty acids and vitamins in it so lipase would increase the delivery system of what we secrete as well as what is in the oil already. Just my thoughts, we will let Crissi finish investigating.

Drinking the castor oil would be a bad idea...unless you're having um, digestion problems.

Apply it to your hair like a normal sealant oil.

Gymfreak, your theory sounds feasable. Me likes!

I am assuming the castor oil whether refined or unrefined is probably applied to the scalp daily and can be applied to the length of the hair for shine.

I have done searches and have heard so much good stuff about it, I can't wait to get some.

Default Re: My Theory on castor oil in regards to growth/thickness...

Although I don't use the castor oil personally. A close friend of mine uses a castor oil mixture for scalp stimulation. She uses:
1 teaspoon sweet almond oil
1 teaspoon castor oil
5-10 drops of rosemary essential oil

Mix the oils together in a bowl (mixing with almond oil helps to improve the smell and it thins the castor oil out some since it's kind of thick) and rub into scalp twice weekly.

Default Re: My Theory on castor oil in regards to growth/thickness...

Thanks for the heads up Crissi.

I just remembered how nice and thick my hair is when I use this.

About breaking up the Fatty Acids.

There's this book that states jojoba oil also breaks up the fatty acids that are on the scalp. She also said that that sebum on the scalp is what stalls healthy hair.

I going to start using both again. Thanks for the heads up.

Plenty!

Default Re: My Theory on castor oil in regards to growth/thickness...

I really like the black castor oil but it's thick and syrupy (is that a word? haha) I use it on the perimeters of my hairline and on my ends at night and it's absorbed by morning. It's good schtuff!

Now my mom would say use it on your scalp (a good bit of it) to break up cold and pleghm. I did that and ended up with a hella-bad sinus infection (broke up but didn't come out).... should be ok if you dilute it? I dunno.

Castor oil is good stuff. I have a good friend of mine who has locs. Her hair grows fast. She told me that she just rubs castor oil, mixed with lavender essential oil for fragrance, on her scalp every day/every other day.

You may wanna get your hands on the pure natural stuff. The castor oil that's clear/yellow sold in pharmacies has all the goodness extracted out of it.

I ordered mine from the US. (They are based in NY I think) Black Jamaiacan Castor Oil (now IMHO this is how real castor oil should look and smell)

What was so stinky about it. It smelled of a very light nutty flavour to me.
