Achieving fast hair growth can be a pain. But what if there are simple “kitchen” products out there that can solve your problem?
Three of the richest oils – castor oil, avocado oil, and coconut oil are considered magic oils for faster hair growth. These are simple kitchen products that are not only healthy, but useful, too.
The most popular uses of castor oil include treating skin infections, lowering constipation, and boosting the appearance of hair health. Research shows that castor oil can support the immune system. It is capable of increasing white blood cells and the count of T-11 cells produced within the body’s lymphocytes that help kill viruses, fungi, bacteria, and cancer cells.
Castor oil is classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid, and 90% of its fatty acid content is a specific and rare compound called ricinoleic acid. This type of acid cannot be found in other substances. It is produced by cold-pressing the seeds and subsequent clarification of the oil by heat.
Since Castor oil has many healing abilities, including:
- supporting the lymphatic system
- Increasing circulation
- Preventing the growth of viruses, bacteria, yeast and molds
- Fighting skin disorders and infections
- Helping to kill ringworm, keratoses, skin inflammation, abrasions, and fungal infections
- Healing acne
- Reducing itching and swelling on the skin
- Fighting toenail fungus
- Easing constipation
- Hydrating chapped lips
- Reducing painful sunburns
- Helping with pregnancy and inducing labor
- Helping hair growth
One of the most notable uses of castor oil is for hair growth. Why use castor oil for hair? Simple, it is a vegetable oil and is used in cosmetics and manufacturing industries. Since it is natural, it is safe for human consumption. It is also safe for external application on hair, skin, and nails. It is appropriate for moisturizing hair, promoting hair growth, and preventing hair loss.
Avocado is more than just a fruit or a dip. Did you know there is such thing as avocado oil? Yep! Studies have found that the benefits of avocado oil include prevention of development of diabetes, high cholesterol, high triglyceride levels, and obesity. In fact, in France, it has received the prescription drug status because of its proven ability to counter the negative effects of arthritis.
Pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit, it produces an oil full of healthy fats, including oleic acid and essential fatty acids.
Avocado oil’s high level mono-unsaturated fat makes it a heart nourishing replacement for other dangerous yet commonly used oils.
It has the ability to stimulate hair growth and softening up of skin. Also, because of its lubricating nature, the oil coats the strings of hair making it shinier and stronger.
Avocado oil can be used more effectively as:
- Hair Oil
- Dandruff Remover
It is rich in vitamin E and B. These vitamins work at a deeper level by penetrating into the epidermis, thus strengthening the hair. Vitamin B supports hair growth while Vitamin E is associated more with repairing of hair damage.
Coconut oil is one of the most loved products for hair growth. According to Coco Treasure, it can be used as a conditioner or hair serum. It improves hair cuticle and scalp health and repair damaged hair. Its anti-fungal properties can also help eliminate the need for dandruff shampoos.
Aside from helping in hair growth, here are several ways where coconut oil is of great use:
- Seal in moisture
