All of us spend a lot of time n front of the mirror while fixing the hair. This is due to the fact that the look of our hair can make a huge difference in the complete image of us.
However, a proper care for the hair will make it shiny, healthy, and voluminous. Castor oil is the most beneficial oil for the hair, as it is high in Omega-9 fatty oils which support the health and growth of the hair.
Moreover, this healthy oil is high in ricinoleic acid which has potent anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, which fight bacteria and fungi and thus accelerates the growth of the hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
Additionally, this oil is excellent in the case of scars. Castor oil boosts the production of elastin and collagen, moisturizes the skin, and makes it wrinkle-free, rejuvenated, soft, and shiny.
We recommend the following treatment for hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes:
5 tablespoons of Castor oil
5 tablespoons of Coconut oil/Almond oil
Due to its natural thickness, castor oil needs to be dissolved in some almond or coconut oil. Therefore, mix the oils and apply their mixture on the scalp, or on the eyebrows and eyelashes, from the roots to the tips of hairs.
This treatment should be done before going to bed. Leave the mixture to act until the morning, and then wash it off with water.
You will notice the positive effects of this treatment very soon!
