Well, some people claim that. But a pharmacist explained to me that it just makes the hair shaft thicker due to the humectant qualities of castor oil, but that there no proven science behind it. It would be difficult to study due to the many variances involved with hair growth such as it’s growth and shedding stages….which can change on a dime due to stress, hormones and diet, so any results would still be inconclusive.
Sigh, here we go again. Science ruining everything with facts and research...
Joke aside, I forgot to mention that use castor on my eyelashes. Not to make them longer mind you (doesn`t work on me, I have tried over several months) but it seems that castor oil is the only oil I can tolerate around my eye area and it helps my lashes not to break off like they usually do (health issues and medication makes my hair thin and brittle and my lashes to break off easily. I am on a vitamin regimen, but it isn`t enough, so castor is a life saver.)
