Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been claimed for centuries to be the secret to thick, luxurious, shiny hair. Though extracted from the same castor seeds as pale pressed castor oil, this rich emollient oil is authentically produced by roasting the castor seeds prior to grinding and then boiling them to extract the dark oil. Roasting the seeds increases the ash content of the oil, which is said to increase the effectiveness of the oil.
With its unique composition that includes omega fatty acids, Jamaican Black Castor Oil nourishes the scalp while supporting healthy hair growth for all hair types, including chemically treated or heat damaged hair. It is said to help restore moisture balance to dry, brittle and damaged hair, leaving it shiny and manageable. Massaging the scalp with Jamaican Black Castor Oil helps improve circulation to the scalp, further benefiting the hair follicles. This versatile oil may also be used as a rejuvenating massage oil or as a rich emollient oil for dry, chapped skin.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil works for all hair types. It will moisturize, thicken, strengthen and rapidly increase hair growth. It increases blood flow to the scalp, supplying valuable nutrients to hair follicles. Jamaican Black Castor Oil will also prevent hair breakages, dandruff, eczema and dry, itchy scalp. Jamaican Black Castor Oil has crossed over into other ethnic groups, and is now being used widely for some of the same purposes, as well as new found uses including eyelash and eyebrow hair growth and as massage oil. This versatile oil carries many varied uses.

- Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and antifungal properties make it beneficial against folliculitis, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth.
- Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance scalp pH which can also help replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products (and even damage from no-poo, due to over alkalinity). The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother and less frizzy.
