Why? Because Jamaican Black Castor Oil has so many uses. It can help with dry hair. It is an oil that is used to maintain moisture. Castor Oil has been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes. The castor bean is native to Eastern Africa and migrated to Jamaica through the slave trade. The way that we get our Jamaican Black Castor Oil is by manual roasting of the Castor Beans and then they are ground. The beans are heated and then oil is distilled out of crushed beans. The color of the oil is a black color because of the roasting of the beans. This is where naturals have to be very careful. Be sure to massage all oil into the scalp. There have been a many stories of sisters being out and there appears to be black stuff running down their neck, sides, or forehead 🙂 This is definitely a romance killer, bad first impression, or horrible photo moment.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil contains Vitamin E and Omega 6 fatty acids and it acts as a humectant to hold moisture. The oil can also dissolve build-up from hair products or other sources in the pores of the scalp.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil can be used for all hair types, whether curly, kinky, or coily. It helps to moisturize, thicken, strengthen, and help hair to grow at a faster rate. It helps by increasing blood flow to the scalp and allowing necessary nutrients to reach the follicle. It also aids in the prevention of breakage, dandruff, eczema, and dry itchy scalp.
There are 5 ways you can use Jamaican Black Castor Oil:
Softening Hair – Anyone else have that one piece or section of hair, usually toward the crown area, that just refuses to coil up like the rest of your hair? Well, after washing hair, apply the Jamaican Black Castor Oil to the unruly piece hair while it is still damp and before styling. A little goes a long way with this oil because of its sticky consistency, so don’t use too much! This is the emollient nature of Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
Pre-Poo Deep Conditioner – In the extremely dry winter months this oil can be used as a deep conditioner. Try mixing equal parts Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Unrefined Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as a deep treatment before washing your hair. Massage your scalp to help break any buildup and promote circulation & moisture. Sit under a conditioning cap for 30 min and then wash hair as usual. This pre-poo process is an amazing detox and restoration for scalp as a whole.
Temple and Edge Balm – If you have trouble getting your edges to lay down you can use Jamaican Black Castor Oil to help in laying them down. Apply a small amount to slightly damp hair and then cover with a silk scarf your hair will be slick and moisturized without using harsh gels.
Oil Cleansing Method – If you have trouble with pores and cleansing, you can use Jamaican Black Castor Oil to help in clearing out and tightening pores. The nutrients in the oil can help in improving the skin’s overall tone and texture. Additionally, the oil carries Vitamin E, known to gradually heal blemishes, old scarring and rejuvenate the skin’s elasticity. Cleansing your skin, before bed, with Jamaican Black Castor Oil will reset your natural oil levels (for those who suffer from dry skin or oily skin), minimize acne problems and improve skin health as a whole.
