There are about a million reasons why castor oil should play a starring role in your skincare routine. Its nourishing and moisturizing properties make it a great way to hydrate skin, hair and nails, while a selection of proteins and antioxidants work overtime to strengthen hair follicles and help hair grow back richer and fuller.
If you’re new to castor oil, it can be daunting as to where to begin; Luckily, Amazon offers one of their most popular: Handcraft Blends Jamaican Black Castor Oil. You can snag a 16-ounce bottle for $17 right now, and over 10,000 five-star reviewers agree – the bigger the better, because you’ll want to use it for pretty much everything.
While a quick search for castor oil on Amazon will turn up many hits, Handcraft Blends Jamaican Black Castor Oil is notable for being unfiltered, undiluted, and free of any additives that might tamper with its natural formula. The result is a pure oil packed with moisturizing and strengthening fatty acids, antioxidants and protein that can do a lot with very little.
The first and best-known application? hair growth. When applied to your scalp, the rich nutrient blend works to lock in moisture to the hair shaft, strengthening hair follicles while encouraging more blood flow to those follicles to further stimulate growth. Whether you are dealing with thinning hair or sparse growing areas, after a few uses you will find that your hair is not only coming back, but thicker and more resilient than before. The best part? This doesn’t just apply to the hair on your head — use this on your too-thin lashes or patchy eyebrows (anyone over-plucked in the early 2000s?) and you’ll see them fill in without the use of a pencil is required or volume mascaras.
But wait, there’s more. This black castor oil is also an excellent skin moisturizer. The same fatty acids, antioxidants and proteins your hair loves can also lock in moisture in your skin, reducing dull and dry patches. This hyperhydration mixed with the power of protein may even help reduce the appearance of fine lines for an anti-aging bonus.
Finally, if you are an essential oil lover, you will find that this powerful bottle helps dilute essential oils and act as a carrier oil. Seriously what tip do this oil?
Come for hair growth…
Not only are reviewers obsessed with the versatility of this product, they are also in love with its results. One five-star reviewer said it not only worked for her, but also for her boyfriend: “I started using it every night and within a few weeks my brows were noticeably thicker. Then I told my friend who had a receding hairline and he tried it too. He has been using it on his scalp every day for about two months and his hair is growing back! His confidence has returned, his hair is thicker and the hairline is closer to his forehead.”
This five star reviewer also remarked on how much you get for your money! “I’m in love with this product! My hair hasn’t grown AT ALL in over 10 years… In the last 2 months since I’ve been using the product liberally, my hair has actually grown. The thin spot on my crown feels a lot fuller “My hair looks and feels so much better than it did before I bought it. I used to use castor oil but I can get a small bottle at stores for eight bucks. Really? So this is a great deal for the amount it is You receive.”
…stick to the anti-aging formula
One reviewer, amazed by the skincare benefits, wrote, “I used this oil on my face around my eyes and I really noticed a difference in my fine lines and wrinkles. My skin also feels softer. Who needs to spend $? $$ for expensive serums?!”
Another remarked: “I am happy to report my face looks younger after trying this oil. It helps with wrinkles, dark circles, old scars and the like.”
