2. Castor Oil
Castor oil is one of my favorite growth treatments and I use it for everything from eyelashes to eyebrows! I’ve even used it to quickly grow a very thick section of my bangs that had been burned down completely! The oil itself is pretty greasy, which means that you might want to dilute it to avoid too much hassle. Add it to your conditioner or mix with almond oil and massage into your scalp if you’re looking for an easy way to promote healthy hair growth. You can also use the castor oil by itself, massage it into your scalp, and leave it overnight, especially if you’re dealing with some serious problems such as receding hairline, bald spots, or thinning hair.
Recipe: Apply several drops of castor oil to your scalp and massage it in thoroughly. Cover your hair with a shower cap, a silk scarf, or other covering and leave it on overnight. Shampoo and condition as usual the next morning. Alternately, mix a few drops of castor oil with olive oil or almond oil and follow the same directions. Also consider adding several drops of castor oil to your daily rinse-out conditioner.
How Often: When using the oil itself, begin with weekly treatments; when mixed with conditioner, use daily or every other day depending on your hair type and texture; to grow thicker eyebrows or eyelashes, try the treatment every day or every other day.
Where to Buy: Castor oil is available at most grocery stores, retailers, and drugstores, or you can order it online from any number of places. (Don't worry if the bottle says it's just for "regularity," it will still work for your hair!)
