Castor oil for babies

Hi, My daughter is 1 month old. Her grandmother is applying castor oil on her head on alternate days. I just wanted to know whether castor oil is good for such newborn babies in this winter season or does it affects the baby in any way.

It can be applied, no problem. Only thing is it requires too much of effort to wash off the oil.... In that context it's better to apply any other oil..
