Castor oil or Ricinus communis is the number one, according to many studies. Its main ingredients, such as ricinoleic acid, vitamin E, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids and minerals, are the main reason why castor oil is the perfect solution for many hair problems, as split ends, dry scalp, thinning hair, or hair growth… Furthermore, it has potent antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, which help with scalp infections.

When you mix all the oils together, simply massage it into your scalp, after which you need to apply it to your hair strands. You can wash it off after one hour, but you can also leave it overnight if you prefer.
