How to Prevent Hair Loss with Oil Treatments
The method of using oils to treat hair loss varies depending on the type of oil used. The usual method is to wash the hair thoroughly taking care to rinse out all traces of shampoo. The hair should then be towel dried and left damp. A small quantity of the oil is then massaged into the hair, starting at the roots and working down to the ends. The hair should then be covered with a shower cap and left for a couple of hours before washing and rinsing. To use castor oil to treat hair loss it is best to apply the oil at night and leave it on the hair overnight, washing the hair in the morning. A couple of hours is usually sufficient to treat split ends and moisturize the hair. A full 8 hours of overnight treatment is far better to treat premature loss of hair.
Choosing the Best Castor Oil Products to Treat Loss of Hair
It is important to ensure that you only use the highest quality oils for hair and scalp treatments. Inferior quality oils contain impurities and have many of the beneficial compounds for hair loss removed in the manufacturing process. If you want to get the best possible benefits, look for ‘virgin’ oils which have been cold pressed. Chemical extraction of oils often leaves impurities and leaches out many of the important minerals, vitamins and fatty acids. The best oils to consider for treating loss of hair are those marked as organic. It is always worth while spending a little more to get the highest quality products. A little extra spent goes a long way.
