Hair loss comes from a variety of causes and conditions. Stress, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, thyroid issues, menopause, heredity and many more conditions can lead to the loss of hair at different times of life.
I’m experiencing hair loss, not quite sure exactly why as I have a few of the above mentioned conditions. I tried several different shampoos and conditioners, asked my doctor if my health could be the reason, and asked my hair stylist what she thought. Came up with not a whole lot of help, but did find some information and testimonials about the use of castor oil mixed with other oils as a hair treatment. I’m game – what do I have to lose but more hair, right?
Castor Oil hair treatment is as easy as any hot oil treatment. Mix equal parts castor oil with a base oil such as coconut oil, or jojoba oil. Dampen hair, apply oil, wrap with a warm moist towel and let it absorb from 30 minutes to 6 hours, or something similar to this.
Here’s a link to an easy step by step guide for Castor Oil Hair Treatment from WikiHow.
I also like this variation of the treatment routine from Health in a Second’s article on Castor Oil Hair Loss Treatment!
I’ve done two treatments so far, and will say my hair is so much silkier, and I’m not noticing the patches of sparse hair as much. I’ve read it takes about a month of twice weekly applications to see good results. So for now, I will give it a thumbs up!
(I am also using ViViD Hair Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner – very nutrient rich!)
