    Default Do you all know if castor oil helps promote fast hair growth?

    My hair is tailbone length right now. I ordered some castor oil on amazon and it had 575 reviews and 4 1/2 stars. It says it helps with hair growth. Does anyone have experience with this? Does it work?

    From what I have seen, it can help to restore hair growth back to a normal amount for your head (so, for instance, those who are recovering from say, traction alopecia, have had good luck with it). As for increasing hair growth for someone with normal growth as is, I have yet to hear anything conclusive.

    Though, should you decide to try out castor oil in your regimen, I would suggest quite a dilute solution of it, as castor oil is very, very thick.

    I've used castor oil off and on for about 3 or 4 months now (leaving it in my hair overnight) & haven't noticed any major increase in my growth rate. I've grown 4 inches of hair in 7 months, so a little above average, but I'm also taking biotin, MSM & a daily multivitamin, so it is possible that those are responsible for my above-average growth rate instead of the castor oil.

    It might be worth a try, just to see if it does anything for you

    I can't say if it increases the rate of growth. I can testify that it will increase individual hair numbers. I have experimented with applying castor oil along my upper lashline every night. After about 2 weeks, there was a very noticeable difference in the number of lashes and they did seem to be longer than before. I certainly had a healthier, thicker, younger looking lashline. I wish I had the dedication to do it all the time!

    I had the same experience. The one and only time I tried it I lost a handful of hair. Never again.
