Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of the castor bean plant and was used by many previous civilizations for beauty and health reasons. Although Castor Oil has been said to help prevent hair loss, no major medical studies have been done to prove this connection. The theory behind the use of Castor Oil is that it will help encourage growth by stimulating the hair follicle. While this may help in some cases, it is not a permanent solution to hair loss. If castor oil is indeed a viable hair loss solution, the effect is limited to slowing down hair loss, at best. Also, this method would not help to encourage hair growth is the follicle itself was damaged. Unfortunately, if your hair loss is genetic in nature, no amount of castor oil or similar “lotions and potions” could stop the balding process.
There is only one permanent solution to hair loss and one effective treatment for hereditary hair loss and that is hair transplantation. Bosley Medical has been performing hair transplantation for over 38 years and is the industry’s leading expert in treating hair loss.
