21 Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil Hair Treatment with Mink Oil


Promises: Use daily to condition, moisturize and restore natural sheen to your hair and scalp. Helps prevent split ends and breakage. Excellent conditioner for natural, pressed, relaxed or color treated hair. Recommended as a conditioner for babies' hair and skin

Directions: Apply daily to wet or dry scalp to keep hair healthy and well conditioned.

Ingredients:
Hollywood Beauty Oil Complex (Castor Oil, Mink Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Jojoba Oil, Paraffin Oil, Safflower Oil, Lanolin, Cocoa Butter, Propylparaben, Fragrance.

The Truth: This is a staple sealant for my ends (morning &/or night). I have been using this oil as a sealant since November 2008 (after my big trim alternating with Hot Six Oil). It seals in moisture very well. My ends stay hydrated and even (barely had to trim my ends since using it). This oil spreads easily onto the hair although it's solid. A little goes a long way, so if you over do it, your hair will be weighed down. Sometimes I'll use this on my scalp just before a relaxer. It works great on damp or dry hair.

Price:
$4.99 CAD 7.50 OZ

Hairlicious Rating: (5/5) Excellent

  2. Is mineral oil bad for your hair? I had heard that it was one of the light oils that was good for hair, or was it the medium oil?

  5. Mineral oil sucks when OVER used, as with anything else. If you flood your scalp with any oil or product, your scalp & hair will eventually reject it as it will clog your follicles. Mineral oil has great benefits to it, extending elasticity and sealing hair ends being only 2 of them. I have used this Hollywood castor and mink oil for the past 6 months and my hair has grown from nape of the neck to right above bra strap length because ive been able to protect and maintain my ends. I agree that one thing won't work for everyone, but this product,even with its dreaded mineral oil (lol) has worked for moi!

  6. yeah, i'm not scared of a bit of mineral oil either. before i started becoming more aware of product ingredients, i used to use a lot of products with mineral oil and never had a problem.

    thanks for posting this :) i stopped using it for a while, but thanks to you, i've rediscovered it and definitely won't let it go to waste.

  7. LOVE this. I don't worry about mineral oil since I use it sparingly and clarify once every relaxer stretch (plus I use a chelating poo at my relaxer).

  8. mineral oil and petroleum are not my thing b/c it gets on my pillow and on my face. I have really bad looking skin on the side of my face I usually sleep on.(note: i eat very healthy) but sounds like some good stuff. I'll just have to use an alternative.

  9. Shoot paraffin oil or not, this is good stuff. It still grows the hair, the proof is in the pictures.

  11. Your welcome ladies. I use this everyday with no problems. Since I don't apply it on my scalp, I don't see the issue. I also clarify 2x/month. It's so good for my ends, it keeps them in great shape.

  19. I purchased a Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil at Walgreens a year ago and I read the ingredients before I purchased it. It did not have any mineral oil or petrolatum. I purchased one yesterday at a beauty supply store. I did not read the ingredients. When I got home, I read the ingredients. I was surprised to find out this one has mineral oil and petrolatum. Has Hollywood Beauty changed the ingredients. I do not like to use mineral oil and petrolatum in my hair. I will use this one for something else.

    1. You're right. The ingredients have changed. I no longer use this hair grease to seal my ends. From time to time, I use it on my previously relaxed hair to protect it from relaxer run-off. Or on my scalp to prevent any burning during my relaxer.
