What Is Castor Oil, and Why Is It Essential?
The castor plant, Ricinus communis, is found in tropical places such as India and East Africa, where it thrives. From the seeds, castor oil is made available. Transparent, translucent, and a pale yellow, it's sticky and thick. The oil has a disagreeable taste and is almost odourless. Castor oil contains antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory effects in addition to its well-known laxative action. The active ingredient, ricinoleic acid, is responsible for these advantages. The same reason castor oil is set to become your new favourite hair product as it is favourite oil for our chemists.
Elma’s team-created Hair Revitaliser very powerful hair oil. We use the best quality castor oil in synergy with herbs.
What are the benefits of using castor oil on your hair?
- Controls Dandruff
Try castor oil if you can't get rid of those annoying white flakes. It works on a variety of dandruff-inducing factors. Is your scalp too parched? Moisture may be added and retained by using castor oil. Seborrheic dermatitis, an inflammatory skin disorder that produces dandruff, can also be controlled by its anti-inflammatory characteristics.
Dandruff may be caused by an excess of the Malassezia globosa fungus. Castor oil can also be used as an anti-fungal treatment.
- Protects hair from thinning
PTGDS, an enzyme implicated in balding, is found in high concentrations in the hair.
Inhibiting PTGDS, on the other hand, can be used to cure hair loss! In fact, research published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2015 found that ricinoleic acid has the ability to do so. Remember that castor oil contains the primary active component, ricin. A fantastic incentive to ditch the harsh chemicals in your home.
- Takes Care of Hair
Since castor oil has a thick viscosity, it's a good conditioner. For complete hair treatment, you only need a small bit. Is your hair prone to becoming brittle and prone to shedding? Castor may also assist with this. Streaks of frizziness will be prevented because of the sticky nature of the texture of the hair.
