Castor Oil for Growing African American Hair

This sounds like a great natural solution for hair moisturizing and growth.  Castor Oil is not among the popular oils on the list for hair care in the research I’ve done, but i’m up for almost anything natural so I’ll definitely be trying it 🙂 Leave a comment and let me know what you think 🙂

I recently began experimenting with oils for beauty treatments. In doing so, I discovered that inexpensive natural oils did as much for my skin as very expensive beauty treatments. In discovering and trying out new oils for my skin, I ran into an oil that did wonders for my skin, but it also caused a bit of a problem.

The castor oil I was using as part of my face oil wash program was causing hair to grow where I did not want it. I noticed my eyebrows getting thicker when I hadn’t had to pluck in a couple of years. I also noticed that the hairs on my chin were getting a bit out of control. With these discoveries in mind, I began to avoid areas on my face that were prone to unwanted hair growth, and continued using the castor oil mixture. Then I had a positive discovery. I realized that my hairline was filling in where it had become thin and uneven. My hair on my right temple was especially thin previously. Now it matches the other side in thickness. It is gray, but it has filled in.

Previously, I had shared that coconut oil helps to grow African American hair because it absorbs into the shaft of the hair and makes it stronger. This is still the case, but while coconut oil helps to prevent breakage, it does not make the hair grow any faster than the typical ½ inch per month. This is where castor oil comes in handy. I have learned that if you massage castor oil into your scalp a couple times a week that your hair will thicken (as mine did) and it will even accelerate hair growth.

  1. I love using Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I also have splurged on Bio Oil… it is pricey but great for skin, so I use it occasionally to seal my hair…@Nyesha I found a knock of with the same ingredients at the “store” I was telling you about. It came from CVS for a fraction of the original cost!!!
