My Castor Oil Mix for the Castor Oil Challenge

Hello Maicurlies,

Castor oil, Rose infused grapeseed oil & peppermint Essential Oil

Castor oil, Rose infused Grapeseed oil & Peppermint Essential Oil

I am starting on week 3 of my Castor Oil challenge and all is going well. I will make a proper separate post about how the last week went (you can read about my first week here) but I wanted to share my Castor Oil blend for now. I use it 3 times a week to:

  • Massage my scalp
  • Massage my hairline
  • Seal the ends of my hair

I am actually planning on increasing it to 4 times a week and who knows maybe even more as the challenge progresses. I was worried that my hair would feel greasy or that my scalp would feel icky and clogged but I can honestly say NO it does not! Even though I have fine hair, it seems to be taking quite well to the castor oil blend. I do think that the fact that I am blending my oil “diluting” it might be one reason why it is working out so well for me.

So without further ado here are the ingredients I use:

I use 70% Castor Oil

  • Increase hair growth
  • Promotes healthy hair due to omega-6 essential fatty acids
  • Thickens thinning hair
  • Reduces hair damage
  • Eliminates dry scalps and hair
  • Helps reduce scalp irritations due to anti-bacterial and fungal properties
  • Helps retain moisture in the hair and scalp
  • Excellent sealing oil
  • Promotes shiny hair
  • Boost your hair’s overall health
  • Helps retain moisture
  • Provides Shine
  • Strengthens hair at the root
  • Protects against frizz
  • Gives the hair a boost of luster
  • Helps stimulate growth (when massaged on the scalp)
  • Can help relieve psoriasis & dandruff – (consult your dermatologist)
I use 7 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

I pour my blend in a spray bottle that ends up working more like a pump because the consistency of the oil is still thick even with it being diluted a little but it works nonetheless. I use just about a coin size amount on either side of the scalp, half a coin size for my hairline and again a coin size dollop on the ends of my hair on either side (left & right).

I have a YouTube Video of how I make my oil as well (below):

If you use Castor oil I would love to hear how you use it. If you blend castor oil please let me know!
