Simple as pie. And it works.
September 7, 2017
Whoo hoo! Okay. So I am mixing this with other organic oils like coconut, olive, jojoba, alba and biotin. I’ve been using it as follows: I mix my oils together in a little bowl, dip my fingers in and massage my scalp while pulling it all down into my ends. Then I do a shower cap, with a hot towel wrapped over the cap and watch a movie. I’ll lose the cap and towel then, yep, I leave it on overnight. I sleep on one of my older ‘who-cares’ pillowcases. Wash with a mixture of conditioner and shampoo in the morning, then do a straight conditioner. Air dry. I’ve done 5-6 treatments over a period of two weeks and am seeing a half an inch of growth. In TWO WEEKS. I’m growing out a pixie so growth is very evident. You know when a pixie cut is significantly longer. Very excited! I also use JUST this (the castor oil) on an old clean mascara brush and do my lashes and brows every night. Results? Longer darker lashes that shine? And my eyebrows are filling in on one side where I thought they would never ever grow again. Oh! To add –the condition of my hair has improved greatly. It was dull. Sort of coarse? It is now shiny and I can run my fingers through it. It MOVES when I shake my head! I can’t wait to see what a few months will do! The earth. It’s amazing. All we need is right here in front of us. The most natural solutions to issues ail.

Great for thinning hair
August 21, 2016
Size: 8 ozVerified Purchase
The difference between Jamaican black castor oil and regular castor oil is the method in which it is processed. Both are great for skin and hair health. Pure natural castor oil is a pale yellow/light golden color and is cold pressed. There is no heat involved in cold pressing, the castor beans are just squeezed at high pressure to extract oil from the seeds. The advantage of cold pressing is that you do not harm any of the beneficial nutrients.
Be aware that some companies will also use a solvent chemical such as hexane to separate the oil making production quicker and cheaper. So if you go that route, research and make sure that the castor oil you choose is reputable 100% pure and 100% cold pressed without use of chemicals.
Jamaican black castor oil gets its distinct smokey roasted smell and darker color by the process in which it is made. Traditionally it is made by
1) allowing the seeds to dry out in the sun
2) roasting them
3) grinding them into a paste
4) adding the paste to boiling water
5 skimming the oil that rises to the top
It can vary in color from a lighter brown hue to a very dark brown. Sometimes you may see particles settle at the bottom of the bottle, which is just ash from roasting the castor beans.
This is a very thick heavy oil. Personally
I prefer to dilute it.
The first way I use it is by combining equal parts extra virgin olive oil with Jamaican black castor oil and a few drops of rosemary essential oil.
Great to help promote hair growth and grow back thinning hair. I apply this to my scalp every night or at least every other night before bed, especially focusing on my thinning edges.
Second I make a whipped hair butter by
1) using the double boiler method I melt equal parts (1/3 cup each) Shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil
2) when it has cooled a bit I add in my JBCO, EVOO, and rosemary mixture
(you can add other essential oils if you choose as well)
3) put bowl in the fridge or freezer just until it starts to solidify but not completely solid
4) whip up into your desired consistency
This is a great butter for your hair but can also double as a body butter.
Lastly I put straight Jamaican black castor oil with a drop of lavender and rosemary essential oil into an empty mascara type container and I apply that to my eyebrows every night before bed.
The jamaican black castor oil is also great to use as a pre poo treatment or even hot oil treatment.
The key to seeing results for hair growth, growing back thinning hair and thickening hair is consistency! You have to keep up with it, making it a routine. You cant just give up after a few days or a week and expect results.
I have seen results in growing back my thinning edges as well as making my hair thicker, even my eyebrows which were prior quite sparse. It also has made my hair very soft and shiny.

Benefits Of Castor Oil For Hair
Growing your hair isn’t only about increasing the speed at which your hair grows. Hair growth involves a numerous amount of other factors like nutrition, health, and the health of your scalp. Castor oil is a perfect hair growth solution since it caters to the various needs of your hair so that it grows healthy and thick.
- Treats Dandruff
The anti fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties of castor oil make it a great solution for battling dandruff. Ricinoleic acid is also known for balancing the pH of the scalp which makes your scalp healthier and an unfavorable environment for dandruff.
- Reduce Split Ends
Castor oil helps fill in the damaged gaps of keratin in the hair shaft increasing the tensile strength of the hair. This makes the hair less prone to breakage and splitting.
- Controls Hair Fall
Ricinoleic acid in castor oil helps improve blood circulation on your scalp. This helps with improving hair follicle and scalp heals which reduces hair fall. It also helps strengthen the root of your hair by nourishing the scalp and providing protection agains microbes.
- Encourages Hair Regrowth
Castor oils nutritional content is made up of about 90% ricinoleic acid. Combined with omega-9 and 6 fatty acids it penetrates and nourishes the root of you hair. This helps with the health of your scalp and boost hair growth.
Castor Oil For Hair Loss
- Take some oil in your palm and work it through your hair from the roots to the tips (the same way you apply your regular oil), and massage well. Castor oil has a thicker density, which makes it difficult to wash it out. Hence, make sure that you do not use too much oil.
- Leave the oil in for a minimum of 15-20 minutes. You could also leave it in overnight.
- Owing to its dense consistency, it can be quite a task to wash off castor oil. You will need to shampoo multiple times to get rid of the oil. But this method works for some – condition your hair with a commercial conditioner 30 minutes before you take a shower. The oil should come off easily.
- Once you wash your hair, towel dry it and avoid using any heat styling tools immediately.
While your hair might feel moisturized, it will take a while before you see any results.
Note: This treatment works best on slightly damp hair.
Castor Oil For Growing Hair
We know that castor oil is an amazing ingredient to treat hair loss and to boost hair growth. But, its dense structure and distinctive smell might not appeal to some. In this case, you can combine castor oil with other beneficial oils to create a hair oil solution that is more to your liking.
The following potion is a combination of four oils – coconut, sweet almond, sesame, and castor. While you can add or remove oils depending on availability and preference, there is nothing like using all four of these together.
What You Need
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon castor oil
- Mix the four oils and massage the mixture into your scalp and from the roots to the tips of your hair. You could warm the oil a little for quicker penetration.
- Keep it on for a minimum of 60 minutes. Optionally, you could leave it in overnight for better results.
- Shampoo your hair to wash it off.
This oil is perfect to induce hair growth. You can make it in large quantities and store it by adding a capsule of vitamin E oil to it to increase its shelf life.
