Castor Oil (Hexane Free)
Distil’s Castor Oil has many medicinal and curative uses. Contains ricinoleic acid that inhibits many viruses and bacteria, and as castor oil is able to penetrate skin tissue deeply, this makes it an effective treatment for acne. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal properties of ricinoleic acid protects the scalp and hair from infections that can cause hair loss. The omega-9 fatty acids in castor oil nourish the hair and prevent the scalp from drying. Rubbing castor oil on your scalp and the roots of your hair will regenerate new hair growth and also thicken thinning hair within months. Rub in a small amount around your eyes and face before bed, washing it off the next morning. Castor Oil breaks up external and internal scar tissue and prevents new scars from forming.

My views about the Aloe Veda Distil Oils
I bought these oils online from Style Craze…Even though they can be used individually, I would like to mix the oils and use it for my hair care…
Individual uses of these oils are mentioned above…
I am really satisfied with the quality of these oils…Olive oil and castor oil has a smell which might disturb some of you..But, Personally, I like the smell…and its not too disturbing for me…when you apply the oil onto the scalp and leave it for sometime, the smell slowly’d go away…
I will wait for 30-45 minutes before washing off and I apply argan oil after dryign my hair…My hair feels fresh, nourished, soft and silky…I use this oil treatment once a week…
If you suffer from scalp problems like scaling or dandruff, You can take the jar after mixing the oils and then slightly place the jar (half dip in hot water without water entering inside jar) on top of a kettle containing hot water..
This way you can apply, slightly hot oil onto your scalp and massage…
You can either massage on your own or ask others help…
Also, If you like, You can dip a hair towel in hot water and after draining the water away…You can actually tie the towel onto the hair and wait for 30-45 minutes…This would give even better results…I completely save my hair spa money by doing this @ home…
You must try this method at home and tell me the result….I am certain that you all will like the result….
Note: Any brand of extra virgin olive oil, castor oil(cold pressed and hexane fee) and Cold pressed Almond oil can be used for this hair treatment….
I really love this brand…I haven’t tried Khadi brand which also has the oil collection..So, Can’t comment on whether this is the best among all..So far, I was using oils which I bought from grocery store as well as Ebay…Now, I am happy that Indian companies are coming forward with great products like this…
Will I repurcahse this I will keep buying almond oil,olive oil and castor oil…But..Dunno whether I will stick on this particular brand…Maybe, I will try other brands…. Take care dearies….Hope you all like my Hair oil mixing idea:)
