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

    Yes cold pressed & food grade. Not the Jamaican.

    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

    Can someone redpill me on DMSO? Where to buy, what to look out for etc. This is talked about all the time but always sparse on details.

    The application method I use for CO is a roller stick. This applies it evenly and thinly if the CO is like 10-20% proportion of the blend that you're using. The difference between just argan/emu and argan/emu/CO is night and day, however; one is close to a non-oily scalp and the other is an oily scalp depending on application/concentration.

    Does DMSO significantly improve absorption tactically/aesthetically?

    What decreases PGD2 other than weird, hard to find chemical products?

    Where did that cheeky kent SwissTemples disappear to? f****r makes a blog in 2015 showing marginal baby hair growth that people frequently equal through other completely different methods, and then disappears forever. The blog with the donation buttons remains however lmao.
