Is castor oil the best treatment option for Alopecia and Alopecia Aerata?
Is castor oil the only thing that works for alopecia? Since I tried it and it worked at 1st but now my edges are still!

Alopecia is another word for hair loss. There are two main types of alopecia: scarring and non-scarring. Non-scar forms can be autoimmune, hereditary or triggered by stress, medications, diseases or anything that interferes with the systemic environment.
If you experience any type of hair loss, a dermatologist can tell you it's scars versus non-scars.

When hair loss is experienced in these conditions, the hair will grow back when the body is in balance again.
There are essential and stimulating oils that can encourage hair growth in areas of the scalp where the hair follicle is still present and unshielded. Castor oil is full of important fatty acids that supply nutrients in the hair and scalp.
(Buy: Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil) If castor oil no longer works rosemary, ylang ylang and sage oils stimulate essential oils that encourage hair growth.
It is important to note that if alopecia around the hairline is not improved, it may be a sign that there are some additional factors contributing to hair loss. These factors may be health-related, hormonal, or a sign of scar tissue in the area, which is a characteristic of scarring of alopecia (which is permanent hair loss); It can be diagnosed and treated by your dermatologist.
