I was born with thin hair. It sucks cause you can see my scalp in some places.
Not aware of any scientific evidence that it can, massage and daily physical activity (get your 10,000 steps) may aid growth. Be sure to avoid sulphate surfactants, they can cause thinning in susceptible individuals. Other that that it would be worth speaking to your family doctor or a dermatologist.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
Experimenting with: benign neglect
Rawr, I don't actually think anything applied to hair (like castor oil) can change the biological structure from thin to thick, although it might make it look thicker. I second the idea of seeing a derm, though. S/he may have ideas for this that we aren't aware of.

You may already have thought of this, but volumizing mousse can make thin hair look and act thicker. Good luck with this!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
There seems to be no scientific evidence to support the claims of some naturals that castor oil increases hair growth.
That being said, who's to say. It may very well be that it helps some people with the rate of growth
However if this is happening they're growing hair where they have follicles and the hair stopped growing for some reason. You cant grow hair where you don't have hair follicles, and you cant get more follicles.

Moisturize and massage daily, that might help
