✨Castor Oil✨ Where Do I Begin! Castor oil has so many benefits. One benefit is hair growth. I use castor oil to help my eyebrows grow. I try to keep up with it but you know life gets in the way at times 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️. But applying this miracle magic every night religiously on your eyebrows and lashes will def help with growth. Here are some other benefits of Castor Oil: With the regular use of castor oil, hair growth can be boosted by three to five times the usual rate. It not only spurs hair growth, but the hair also becomes noticeably thicker within a few months of use (2). Castor oil also can make your eyelashes and eyebrows longer and thicker. There are three types of castor oil that are popularly used for hair care – organic castor oil, Jamaican black castor oil, and hydrogenated castor oil. While the castor seeds are originally from Africa, they made their way to Jamaica due to the slave trade.
Organic/Cold Pressed Castor Oil
Extracted directly from the castor seed with no heat involved
Uses a mechanical and non-chemical method called expeller pressing
The cold pressing ensures there is no degradation of any of the nutrients present in the seed
It is pale yellow in color
If you have curly hair and an itchy or dry scalp that is prone to irritation, it is recommended that you use unrefined, hexane-free organic castor oil as it is less alkaline than JBCO.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO)
Initially roasted and then pressed for oil
The ashes of the roasted castor seeds are added to the oil, which gives it its black color
If you have straight hair and a healthy scalp, you are more likely to benefit from JBCO, which is better at penetrating and cleansing. #beautytips #castoroil #hairgrowth #eyebrows #lashes #growth #beauty #skincare #benefits #coldpressed #nycbeauty
