So I have been using the castor oil once a week or once a fortnight for around 4 months. I have noticed that my hair has grown but I don't know whether this has solely been due to the oil, as I have also tried not to use heat on my hair and tie it up quite a lot. I can tell the condition of my hair has improved as I don't have as many split ends and the top layers of my hair have grown loads and they are almost the same length as the rest of my hair now. Of course being a dedicated blonde means my hair does suffer from bleach damage but it's not half as bad as it was before the castor oil. I broke up from Uni at the end of June and went to see my uni friends 2 weeks ago and they commented on how much my hair has grown so it's obviously doing something. I just feel that I want to wake up with super long hair overnight and it's just not going to happen. I would recommend the oil for anyone wanting to improve the condition of their hair and to help with hair growth, it's just a pain to wash out. I usually end up washing my hair 2/3 times to get the oil. But if you have free time on your hands to wear the oil in your hair overnight then this should be fine. My hair is currently approaching the booby length but I want the front layers to grow quicker because they make the rest of my hair look shorter. The picture below shows how long my hair is now and you can see the front layers are shorter than the rest.
I hope this helps anyone who is wanting to try the oil, I wish I had before and after pictures for you but sadly I don't. If anyone has any hairgrowth secrets they would like to share please get in touch, I need my hair to grow grow grow.
