Castor Oil: A Curly Girl’s Best Friend

Today’s blog is for all of our curly-haired beauties out there!

Having curly hair can be both a blessing and a curse, with frizz and flyaways being a very real problem.

We’re sure that finding the products and processes to perfect your luscious curls is at the top of your list, and it’s at the top of ours too!

Let’s look into castor oil and how it can transform frizz into fabulous…


What are the Benefits of Castor Oil for Curly Hair?

Castor oil comes from the castor plant, which is packed with vitamins, nutrients, and fatty acids.


With all of these amazing ingredients, it’s no wonder that castor oil is great for curly hair! 


One of its biggest benefits is that it reduces frizz and flyaways, plus it:


  • Moisturises: Castor oil is a humectant, meaning that it sucks water out of the air and draws it to the hair follicle, retaining moisture where needed, and moisturising dry hair and scalp.

  • Promotes hair growth: By using castor oil just once a month, hair can grow up to five times faster as blood flow to the scalp is increased.

  • Prevents hair loss: Being rich in ricinoleic acid and Omega-9, castor oil helps to prevent hair loss.

  • Cares for dry hair: Castor oil’s fatty acids allow it to seal in moisture and keep hair softer and healthier, preventing breakage and split ends.

    How to Use Castor Oil in Hair

    Now, of course, you wouldn’t just dump castor oil straight onto your hair (desperate times aren’t here just yet!), so how should we use castor oil in hair?


    Here are some ideas on how to incorporate castor oil into your hair routine:


    First off, you can create a hair mask by combining castor oil and aloe vera to revitalise the scalp and regulate healthy sebum (an oily fluid that prevents hair from drying up and falling out.)


    Mixing castor oil with shampoo is a great way to keep your curls well moisturised and make the most of castor oil’s natural moisturising properties.


    You can also combine castor oil and coconut oil to reap the benefits of both, resulting in moisturised, repaired hair.
