Castor oil (cold pressed and cold processed) and almond oil does wonder for hair growth. I use the brand of castor oil from my local organic health store... Been using it for 4 months now and my hair is no longer falling out. It's thicker and my bald hairline (from bad perms, braids and weaves for years)now has fuzzy hair there. Search the internet and read what people are saying. I apply daily on my scalp.
