Many of you may have read that last month I ordered some castor oil for my hair from ebay. I read tons of reviews and results about castor oil and how it had made peoples hair longer and thicker. I have wanted long hair for so long and my hair is really thick but just doesn't seem to grow much, so this seemed perfect for me. You can read about the castor oil and where I got it from in my earlier post. So my castor oil within 3 days of me placing my order and I so couldn't wait to try. The castor oil is a thick vaseline like consistency but when you rub it into your hair it warms up and turns more into a liquid consistency. This is what it looks like on my hair, my roots are clearly greasy. I certainly wouldn't leave the house with it on but overnight and when I'm not doing anything it's fine. It also smells nice with a bit of a coconut scent.
How I apply it
I put it straight onto my hair dry as if it was wet the oil doesn't mix very well with water and would go all funny. So I use a tail comb and hair sectioning clips to section my hair off starting at the nape of my neck. I section it then rub it along the roots of my hair and then a little on the ends. Then move up about an inch of a section and repeat until I get to the top of my head, rubbing into the roots and ends of my hair each time. Then I massage it all into my hair to stimulate hair growth and ensure it's all rubbed in nicely (it's also quite relaxing). To finish I just clip it up on top of my head and rub in some oil around my hairline and all done! It only takes 5 minutes to apply and I usually leave it on overnight (around 10 hours) I apply it once or twice a week.
I have seen a massive improvement in the appearance of my hair and it's a lot shinier now and the new hair growing through seems really thick and healthy. It also seals my split ends and I don't know how much my hair has grown but It's definitely grown at a faster rate than before. I'm going to continue using it and hopefully I will have hair like Rapunzel soon!
