Hair loss and hair thinning are very common in both men and women and can make a person feel really insecure. Suffering from this issue can be very disturbing, which is why we suggest a simple yet highly effective treatment for it.

The average adult has about 100, 000 to 150,000 hairs, a small amount of which falls out every day. The normal amount of hairs a person sheds per day ranges between 50 to 100 hairs, but this shedding isn’t noticeable as new hair is constantly growing.  However, if this cycle of hair growth and shedding is in some way disrupted, then it may lead to hair loss.

According to Mayo Clinic, some of the common factors that can lead to hair loss include hormonal changes, heredity, medications or medical conditions. This issue can affect anyone – men, women and children.

Nevertheless, you shouldn’t despair because there are various treatments that can help you solve your issue.

Out of the numerous hair loss treatments, we picked the one that is believed to be the best and most effective – castor oil. Hair typically grows by about half an inch every month, but with regular use of this oil, your hair will grow much faster, even by three to five times the usual rate.

Castor oil is truly amazing due to its high content of ricinoleic acid – an unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid – which combined with the omega-6 and 9 fatty acids, penetrates the hair shafts and roots, providing hair with essential nourishment and boosting its health and growth at the same time.

This oil is popularly known for its ability to moisturize hair, promote hair growth, and prevent hair loss.

How to Make Your Own Castor Oil Shampoo?

Preparing a homemade castor oil shampoo is pretty simple and its regular, liberal application to your scalp will result in healthier, stronger, and thicker hair.

By applying castor oil to your scalp and hair and massaging it, you will improve the blood circulation to the hair follicles, thereby stimulating faster hair growth. Moreover, since the regular use of castor oil will moisturize and condition your hair, it will also help you eliminate other hair problems such as split ends and hair breakage.
