Can castor oil thicken my hair?
I was born with thin hair. It sucks cause you can see my scalp in some places.
The science on this seems to be iffy at best. Some people claim that the omega-9 in castor oil can cause hair to grow in better. Some say simply applying the oil to the strands make them appear thicker. If you're trying to grow more hair, a lot of curlies have had luck with biotin supplements.
