Could applying Castor Oil directly to your scalp cause breakage?

Post by FemmeNaturel on 21st March 2011, 6:35 pm

I have been using the Home Health Castor Oil on my scalp for a little over a month now. I use it once a week on my wash days. When I part my hair, I have noticed pieces of short hairs sticking out from my roots. I looks like breakage but it does not feel like breakage. It feels like thick short pieces of new growth. Has anyone experienced this?

@Ambitious_Tiff Thanks... I am so glad to hear that someone else other than myself has experienced this. I am just happy that it is just new growth.

I understand 'cold pressed' is the best type castor oil to use; anyone use anything other than cold pressed?

Well, I wouldn't focus all the attn on "cold pressed." That just means the processing was done under rigid temperature standard, which varies from company to company in terms of the exact temperature. So far, most of the castor oil I see is "cold pressed." Personally, I like to see that it is also free of hexane and solvents and I tend to prefer organic also, but this castor oil I have now is the Heritage version that is not the organic one.

Good to know. I've been noticing this too, and wishful thinking said "it's just new growth, girl!" Phew thankfully that's been confirmed!

I use it in my Shea butter mix and it works well blended
