    Worked. Thicker, darker hair fibers. No regrowth of bald areas

    sorry if this has been asked before, but is it important that the oil is cold pressed?

    Thanks, i ordered another one that fits those requirements.

    Are there any benefits of mixing it with other oils apart of not being so sticky and thick anymore?

    I mixed my last one with apprx. 50% Jojoba Oil, 30% Castor and 20% Coconut.

    I mix mine with Emu oil + a little alcohol, 50% Castor, 40% Emu + 10% Alcohol or DMSO (Although I have used minoxidil as well). Leave it on over night.

    Bump for this question.

    I've read it boosts all your hair, I would like this as my eyebrows are sparse and my beard could be thicker.

    Can anyone who has taken it orally for at least a month chime in on how well it worked/didn't work?

    There doesn't seem to be much in terms of reliable studies, only anecdotal data.

    Thanks!

    Can you overdo it with castor oil? I’ve started using hairmetto after I put on minoxidil foam and hairmetto has castor oil. Last night I added castor oil afterwards . I want to dermaroll too but 1.5 is gonna hurt . I’ve practiced with .3 and it is a bit unpleasant but doable
