The Truth About Baldness And Castor Oil

The use of castor oil has been gaining popularity over the past few years. However, castor OIL has been produced from time immemorial for all manner of uses ranging from food and preservatives to propelling jet engines.

Today, one of the questions being asked in blogosphere is whether or not castor oil can cure baldness.

The simple answer is no; otherwise, one would not find any baldhead men or women around.

The fact is there are various causes to baldness, and some factors play a major role in the acceleration of hair loss in men, for example:

Male hormone excess: the hair cycle is faster (this is the main cause for baldness and it is genetic)

Stress: depending on your situation; stress can make hair loss much worse

Unbalanced diet: a lack in some essential vitamins can be detrimental to your hair health

Aggressive shampoo

Some drugs/medicines

Although baldness is less frequent for women, it does happen and some of the reasons are:

Menopause: the decrease in feminine hormones provokes a weakening of the hair

Stress: depending on your situation; stress can make hair loss much worse

Unbalanced diet: a lack in some essential vitamins can be detrimental to your hair health

Aggressive shampoo

Some drugs/medicines

Regardless of the snake oil being peddled on the market, there is no medical evidence to support the claim of castor oil curing baldness or recreating lost hair.

That said, castor oil can strengthen one’s hair by increasing the micro circulation at the bulb level as well as act as a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungus agent which will prevent dry scalp and dandruff.
