Castor Oil is the new trend that not a lot of people know much about. Castor Oil is such a dense and strong oil, it’s too strong for an head or facial hair, but it can be used for body hair.

I use Light therapy. Red L.E.D. Lights. I started way before that red Led helmet came out. Any red Led (light emitting diode) will work, this is not just a plain red bulb. There is a difference. There are so many now for face treatments and other uses but if it is LED then it will all work the same. I use it for all kinds of things. It will heal my bruises, cuts, burns, muscle aches, etc. it makes everything heal so fast. Even helps my hair grow fast. I will hold it up against my scalp in thinning areas and leave it there for 10 min and then move to another spot. There are no side effects except it makes my hair GROW!! You can tell within a week! Not a month or 3 months. When I would get sinus pain, it would be gone in 5 minutes by just holding the light against my face where my sinus pain would be. Please just google red Led light…….I am not trying to promote a certain website or product. Don’t add therapy or treatment because then you will pull up red led lights marked way up. All red LED lights work the same, whether they are made for your head or to light up a Christmas tree. My first red LED light was a Halloween spotlight that had 5 one watt bulbs in it which cost me $4, that I held up against my scalp and works the same as the one I have now.
