Apollo castor oil for hair loss?

Can I use it with the directions from the article or does it need to be a different brand.


You are able to use any brand of castor oil you wish to use. A certain brand is not required. Apollo Castor Oil has been refined so that you can take it internally for upset stomach and parasites. You can still use the brand though and whenever you use Castor Oil you want to make sure that you cut it 50/50 with another oil base like mineral oil, coconut oil or olive oil. When you wash your hair it may need to be done twice to get the oil completely out because this Castor Oil is quite thick. You can add a Vitamin E oil to the Castor Oil for maximum hair growth benefits.

Hi, there is a patch on my head where hair is loss

Near ear there is a small patch where I am losing hair.


Your levels of Zinc and Magnesium in your body may be unbalanced. Hair loss around the ears is a sign of that. Consider using the Castor Oil in that area specifically while also taking a supplement with Zinc and Magnesium along with Calcium. You will need to balance these in your body for the best results. Even over the counter hair remedies will not work efficiently in the area behind the ears if your balance of Zinc and Magnesium is off.

How to stop hair loss and encourage hair growth?

I am a teen of just 15 years and had started losing much hair from forehead. How can I stop hair loss and encourage growth for thicker hair?

Teenagers can lose hair as their hormonal balance changes. You will recover the hair you have lost in that area. Avoid wearing baseball caps for long periods of time. Treat the area with Castor Oil and Vitamin E. Eat a healthy diet and avoid stressful circumstances. Stress will cause hair loss and as a teenager you are still developing your stress coping skills. Practice heavy breathing when you begin to find yourself getting stressed over exams or personal matters.

I thought that castor oil is for purgative?

Because I need to lose weight for my sports

Castor Oil is a natural laxative but it is not a healthy way to shed extra pounds. When people use laxatives to lose weight all they are doing is shedding excess body weight and over time you can destroy your intestinal track if you do this frequently. Consider instead using a website/app like Myfitnesspal. You can track your calories and stay under the recommended daily amount. If you put in your exercise myfitnesspal will make sure that you allow for extra calories so that you do not put your body into starvation mode.

Can apollo castor oil also grow my eyelashes and eyebrows?

I have read that only cold compressed can grow eyelashes but is this true?

The cold compression method extracts all of the minerals, aroma, and vitamins of the product. That means that if you use cold-compressed castor oil, then the oil will be richer in nutrients (specifically, in vitamin E). However, any castor oil (including the Apollo brand) is effective in making eyebrows and eyelashes less brittle by moisturizing them and in stimulating growth even in the areas where the hair was not visible. To apply castor oil, wash your face and use a make-up brush or an eyeliner brush to spread the castor oil across the eyebrows and along the eyelashes before you go to bed. Be careful not to get the oil into your eyes. Wash off the oil in the morning or use cotton pads for eyelashes.
