Castor Oil is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love Now products. I use this castor oil as a hair and skin moisturizer. Smells good and works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful hair Wow for this product makes my dry hair soft and strengthens the strands. I use equal parts of castor oil and Swanson organic coconut oil for a hair treatment before shampooing. Putting it in before you workout and using your body head for the scalp is beneficial. You don't need a lot but for long hair that has been treated, probably a tablespoon of both oils. I use Henna only on my hair, no chemicals. I am glad I have been using it and know no harm is being done. I am 62 and people say I look like I am in my 20's, the other's say 50's. Thanks to Swanson for the many products I use I am able to stay healthy and more. Thank you all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I absolutely love this brand of Castor oil for my hair. I have seen the difference in texture and it has really strengthened my hair too. I would buy again and would also recommend it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I love the large size and easy flip top. Don't move/travel without wrapping a piece of tape around the cap though - learned that the hard way. I have fine/curly hair and add a drop of this to the argan oil I use to keep my hair healthy and shiny. It's light and moisturizes very nicely - doesn't just sit on top of the hair, it actually makes it feel more healthy. I also use a few drops in my facial cleanser for sensitive skin. My skin feels smoother after cleansing this way and moisturizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using for natural hair care I purchased castor oil for my natural hair care. I have very thick, curly natural hair. I use castor oil after I've moisturized my hair to lock in the moisture. It is very thick but easily glides onto my hair. I previously purchased another brand of castor oil that would take a mighty force to transfer from my hands to my hair. NOW Foods brand is very easy to manage, yet thick enough to get the job done. Definitely will purchase more when I run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Castor Master This Castor oil was helpful to me in following the Gerson therapy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOW Foods Castor Oil I prefer this castor oil because it is less expensive & the bottle has a VERY convenient & DURABLE flip top cap. The Swanson brand castor oil used to have a flip top cap but it does not anymore. Castor oil is messy, although it is easy to rinse off your hands. Even with the flip top cap you will make a mess. But, with a cap that you have to unscrew & then screw back on after using the castor oil, the mess you make is at least double what you make with the super-convenient NOW Foods brand castor oil with the marvelous FLIP TOP cap. Make sure that any castor oil you buy has a FLIP TOP CAP. If you don't, you will wish you had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality Products Love that Swanson provides good quality products at amazing prices. Again, I use this to mix with my hair conditioner to add an extra pep in my conditioning process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as a hot oil treatment My hair is dry and frizzy; nothing seems to work lately. I decided to use this oil as a hot oil treatment for my hair.I warmed up about half a cup of oil, (you can use more or less depending on length and thickness of hair) and applied to my hair, especially being heavy on the ends and middle . I gathered up my hair, put on a shower cap, left it for 1 hour, then washed it with a moisturizing shampoo. I conditioned as usual, leaving it on for 5 minutes then rinsed. When my hair dried, it had the most incredible shine, softness and was not greasy at all.
