I once tried to make homemade shampoo with castor oil and my hair ended up looking like oily straw. Awful! Didn't work for me. Didn't dare use it on my face or body after the hair experience. But, I've seen people speak very highly about it on the web and in healthstores. Are there any success stories on here?

I was applying castor oil to my face every night for awhile and it really helped with oiliness and preventing acne. I recently stopped because I’m now using some other topical creams (prescribed by a physician at a medical spa) to get rid of scarring. But, it’s definitely worth a try. Especially if you have oily skin.

Want to be free,

Do you cut it with extra virgin olive oil? I heard that it's common to mix the too and apply the solution at night and wash off with a hot washcloth.

Do you use anything in the morning? Thanks!

That would be the oil cleansing method that you are speaking of. I tried that for awhile but I wear make-up an never felt really clean afterward. I have used it as just a topical. Wash my face at night then apply castor oil all over and leave it on overnight. Wash it off in the morning. Works great!
