Benefits of Castor oil for hair
* Castor oil has many benefits for hair, including preventing hair loss, stimulating hair growth and moisturising and conditioning dry hair.
*Organic Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis), is a thick viscous oil obtained from the seeds of the Castor bean.
* Castor Oil contains approximately 85% of a fatty acid, called Ricinoleic acid, this fatty alcohol is unique to Castor Oil.
* Ricinoleic acid has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and analgesic properties. Thus, in spite of being an oil, Castor is a great cleansing agent and an ideal constituent of shampoo.
* However, the most amazing property of Ricinoleic acid is it's ability to act as a humectant (ie; draw moisture from the air), making Castor oil a superb moisturiser for dry and damaged hair.
