The 411 about Certified Organic Castor Oil
Why do people love our Certified Organic Castor Oil so much? Because of its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, 100% Certified Organic Gold Castor Oil has been known to prevent the growth of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and moulds when used. This makes it a 'must have' in the bathroom cabinet for any scalp or skin related issues you may face throughout your lifetime.
Let me give you the real low down of Castor Oil. When it's cold pressed, organically certified with no additives, you're purchasing Castor Oil in its purest form. This form is effective because its properties (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral) are effective in treating scalp conditions, allowing for a healthy scalp that grows healthy hair.
Here's a quick run down of Castor OIl's benefits for hair and scalp:
It's a Dandruff Deterrent - Because of its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, it can help clear up dandruff and scalp infections.
It can Curb Hair Loss - Infections and scalp disorders are major causes of hair loss. Viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites can attack your skin and scalp, leading to bald patches and impeding hair growth. Because of its properties, it can clear up the viral, bacterial or fungal attacks that could lead to hair loss.
It aids in Hair Growth - Castor Oil contains natural compounds that promote hair growth. It contains a large percentage ricinoleic acid, one of the essential amino acids required by the human body, that can penetrate into the pores of the scalp and the hair follicles. It provides nourishment, enabling the hair follicles to restore growth to a normal level.
How long will Castor Oil take to work? Castor Oil works with your hair's growth cycle. On average hair grows between a 1/4 inch to an inch a month - so dependant on how quickly your hair grows, it will determine how quickly you start seeing results. If Castor Oil is working to clear a condition, it can take a little longer for your hair follicles to improve and increase hair growth.
In the first week, you should see more nourished and manageable hair. If you stick with your Castor Oil Scalp Routine you will see more dramatic results within the month.
What Castor Oil wont do. It has many benefits for your scalp and hair, but it won't get your hair thicker than your genes allow. There is no topical product that will increase your hair's thickness past what your genetics allow. When bloggers talk about the benefits of Castor Oil, they really should be saying that it will 'repair your damaged hair's texture and assist with hair growth when used correctly'.
