Yahoo Life Discusses Castor Oil With Dr. Green
Yahoo Life investigates a well known hair oil in their article “Is Castor Oil Good for Hair? Experts Explain Once and for All”. Castor oil has been around for a long time and is claimed to help hair grow and increase density. Even though no scientific evidence supports this, castor oil can support hair health. Dr. Green states “Castor oil has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to improve circulation and stimulate hair follicles. Improving circulation allows oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the hair follicles to maintain scalp and hair health”.
If you want to introduce castor oil into your hair care routine, it is best used as a pre-shampoo treatment, applied to the roots and brushed towards the ends. Its consistency is very thick so it may be worth diluting it with a carrier oil or swapping your shampoo for a clarifying formula so that all the castor oil is washed out. Dr. Green suggests doing this hair care routine once a week.
