Castor Oil, Egypt
In ancient Egypt, hair was a symbol of beauty, wealth, status and fertility. To maintain the growth and the strength of their natural hair, most Egyptians used castor oil for their hair due to its nourishing properties. The oil is massaged into the hair and scalp, and then a hot wrap is put over it. This is to enable the vitamins and fatty acids in the concentrated castor oil to penetrate deeply into the scalp and hair follicles. In recent times, castor oil has grown in popularity among beauticians and natural hair enthusiasts who want to achieve the perfect natural hair.
