    I've started taking 1ml orally and once per day topically. Not sure if it will do anything but it's cheap.

    I apply some to the scalp, followed immediately by my next Topical (either minoxidil or prox-n) and sort of mix and rub it into my head.

    It doesn't taste bad at all. I have been drinking it for a month now. I don't notice anything really yet. I was doing topical with dmso but its another thing on the list that I have to do.

    Does the NOW brand also say "DO not ingest"?

    I'm thinking they all do, but that's what makes me hesitate to try it.

    Interesting thread. Do people think castor oil will make that much of a difference if you're already on the "big 3"?

    you will end up like most ppl, using it for a week or two at most, and then giving up on it.

    I use castor oil orally (3-5ml daily) and have just started topically as well with DMSO, it has thickened my hair up a lot especially around the hairline. However I did quit topical cetirizine around the same time, which is known to inhibit PGE2, so part of it may be because of that.

    My NOW brand bottle states, "For uses other than external, please consult a doctor. Castor oil can have a laxative effect."

    I heard people who get their hair wet apply it to the scalp as those who say to put it on the scalp after a shower that makes no sense! It will make your hair look even thinner and not realistic if you have a life outside of home.

    Yep, been on castor oil for a while now. I think it's a solid addition to any regime.

    I think it would be helpful (and appreciated) if you expounded in greater detail on why you believe castor oil is working well against your male pattern baldness.
    Much thanks.

    I'm going to be adding oral castor oil like I have added topical tea tree oil: it's cheap and easy.

    However, I have no expectations.

    That's why you shouldn't chug the castor oil bottle.

    I think the recommended "alternative" portion for hair loss is 1 ml.

    The amount used to induce excretion in the constipated, birth in the pregnant, and death among 1930s Italian communists is probably higher.

    You aren't harvesting it. Don't worry.
