Effects of Castor Oil on Hair Growth

Updated: May 23, 2023

There are a lot of claims stating that castor oil promotes hair growth, however, there is not a lot of scientific research to back this up. Let’s take a look at some of the properties castor oil holds, and how they could affect hair growth.

Castor oil is made of several fatty acids that provide hydration for your skin and hair. Keeping your hair hydrated helps reduce breakage, formulating healthier hair strands. The main fatty acid found in castor oil is ricinoleic acid, which contains anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. For this reason, applying castor oil to your scalp can help reduce inflammation and help you maintain a healthier scalp balance.

To partner with this, castor oil has many antibacterial properties. This is one reason why it’s so common to use in various soaps and makeup products. Because castor oil is so strong and thick, it’s smart to combine it with a carrier oil, such as almond or jojoba oil, to reduce any chance of an allergic reaction.

Other studies show that castor oil is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are amazing to use for one’s skin and hair. They fight free radicals and promote collagen production. This helps keep your scalp clean and ultimately stimulate healthy hair growth.

Our Hair Growth Oils

We have a few natural hair products that use castor oil: the stimulating hair growth oil and the organic hair growth oil. Our moisturizing hair products combine natural oils that are known to promote hair growth and maintain healthy hydration for your scalp.

Our stimulating hair growth oil contains castor oil, combined with some carrier oils. It is infused with soothing oils, including peppermint, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil. These help calm irritated scalps, dandruff, and reduce hair loss. Tea tree oil has many antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it an excellent addition to promote hair growth.

Our organic hair growth oil is a blend that not only promotes hair growth, but adds shine and life to your hair, starting from the roots. The oils in this formula provide your hair with the proper nutrients and protection that help your beautiful curls and coils stay healthy and alive. We recommend applying it on your scalp after you use your favorite moisturizer, to lock it in and keep your hair happy!
