Whether we think we’re starting to suffer from hair thinning or not, many of us are conscious about how we handle our hair. We try to consider how often we wash our hair, the kind of shampoo we use when we do – as well as other hair products – and how they will affect our overall hair health. Other factors like our stress levels and diet are on our minds too when it comes to not just our hair health but the health of our skin.
That’s where products like castor oil come in. Castor oil is mainly known as an over-the-counter laxative. It may sound strange after reading that, but this oil is also used to promote skin health by fighting off things like fungal infections and dermatitis. Knowing that castor oil can promote skin health, could it also be used to promote hair health by improving scalp health?
