Castor oil for regrowing and thickening hair, eyelashes and eyebrows
This amazing oil has a unique ability to deeply penetrate in the skin or hair, and this helps it to deliver its goods deeply into the pores and the follicles which produce hair.
It also has a high gloss, and it gives a lush glossiness and shine to your hair. A little goes a long way;therefore it would be best to only add a tiny bit to the ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you are looking just for a natural hair smoother.
You just need to put around 2 drops on your hands and rub, and then smoothly put it on the ends. If you use a lot, there is a fine line between delicate shine and a heavy greasiness. For that reason, go very light just until you figure out the amount that suits your hair type.
