I've been applying castor oil to my hair three or four times per week days straight I wanted to show you what happened to my hair it actually makes pretty surprising viewing so right at the end I'm going to be inserting my before and after pictures to show you how much my hair grew so stay tuned right to the end
What is castor oil?
Castor oil is a multi-purpose vegetable oil that people have used for thousands of years it has a number of medicinal industrial and pharmaceutical use. Castor oil is commonly used as an additive in foods medications and skin care as well as an industrial lubricant and biodiesel fuel component.
Castor oil has been used for hundreds of years as a medicine it's also used as a laxative although only god knows why you drink it because it just it smells strong only I can't Imagine what it tastes like but it's there as a laxative if you need it so when applied to the scalp castor oil is purported to enhance healthy normal hair growth.
So what can Castor oil do for our hair? It can actually improve the condition of hair because castor oil contains omega- essential fatty acids vitamin E rhythm Ricinoleic acid as well as other vitamins and minerals which provide nutrition to hair follicles due to its nutrient-rich value castor oil may help to reduce hair damage and hair loss caused by free radicals a study showed that castor oil can help to reduce hair loss split ins and hair damage and some people have even found that castor oil can speed up hair growth by as much as five times the normal rate.
So I really wanted to get in on the castor oil challenge and show you what's happened to me this is the castor oil brand that I used it's called pucker castor oil. So can I just say this isn't gifted or sponsored or anything like that. I bought it so my first initial observation is when you open it is smells quite strong it doesn't smell like this fresh gorgeous beautiful smell it's not like lavender or peppermint oil or anything like that it's really earthy and nutty so when you've actually rubbed it into your scalp you will notice the smell and I don't know if anyone around me like my husband could notice the smell I could kind of smell it a little bit. But it does wear off a bit but it's anyway let me just say it's quite an earthy nutty smell.Once I'd massaged it into my hair and then I just went to sleep
So during my 30 day castor oil challenge I stopped taking my own hair supplements. As you might know I'm the founder of hair supplement brand it really works vitamins I set up the brand five years ago we've been in Forbes as the best nutrition innovation and and we're voted as one of the best hair growth products for men by shortlist magazine if you are on your own hair growth journey then please do check us out at itreallyworksvitamins.com and see what we can do for you.The best thing about it really works vitamins is that if you try us and you don't love your results then you get a full refund no questions asked.
Okay back to my -day castor oil challenge so I just make sure that I was massaging the castor oil into my hair three times a week and I would just take about five minutes to massage the oil into my scalp so once you've massaged the castor oil into your scalp I hope you can tell they're following more 24 hours or if you're feeling really brave or if you just know you're not going to have to see anyone you could just have a quiet time at home you could leave it in for 48 hours
umm it is extremely heavy so you do feel like a real heaviness in your scalp that it's in there and your hair is really greasy so like I didn't find it particularly comfortable because my hair was just it was just so greasy I just I really hated it because I like having nice hair.
My favorite effect of the castor oil is that my hair is extremely soft I've really really noticed the difference I’m not sure if other people have noticed the difference but I’ve really noticed the difference it's really soft very shiny and it is actually worth it if you can just face having greasy hair and having to probably wash your hair a little bit more than normal.
If you can face doing the castor oil challenge so when you're washing out the castor oil you're going to need to wash it twice because the oil is so thick and heavy just one shampoo just won't do it.
I’m going to show you the shampoo that I use I’m going to go to my bathroom really quick there'll be one second. Oh I’m out of breath this is the shampoo that I use it's called Palmers coconut oil formula it is really really good so if you can get this one or any shampoo that is free of sulfates parabens mineral oil gluten dyes or phthalates I use both the shampoo and conditioner. This isn't sponsored or gifted or anything like that I just really really like these shampoos they're really really good for your hair and it's free of all the nasties this is a really good conditioner so i leave it in for like six seven 10 minutes. However long you're in the shower for you leave it on for and then when you wash out your hair is also silky and soft.
So guys as promised these are my before and after pictures the first one was just taking it in our lounge on in mid-June and the next one was taken in around 20th of July as you can see I mean can you see that much of a difference?
Even though people online are talking about castor oil speeding up hair growth I kind of really wasn't expecting it to I knew that it would soften up my hair follicles and moisturize them because obviously castor oil is a humectant and has lots of omega- fatty acids and but I wasn't expecting it to really speed up hair growth and to be honest my hair grows faster when I'm taking my own hair vitamins but it was a nice experience anyway because I did feel that my hair was very very soft and shiny purely because I was just moisturizing the outside of it with my castor oil so I just wanted to show you guys.
But overall I do think it was definitely worth doing the castor oil challenge my hair is very soft and shiny it's not something that I can do if I’m really going to be seeing a lot of people when you're in lock down or if you're working from home a lot and you just don't have to worry you can just put a nice hair band on or a hat if you're a guy or something and you don't have to worry about seeing anyone then it's fine but if you're seeing lots of people all the time and you're kind of thinking about the smell and stuff like it's just not it's not a it's not a look. But I do recommend it if you just want to have softer shinier hair and it's really useful as a deep conditioning treatment.
