Castor Oil Challenge Part 2: No More JBCO

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

QUICK UPDATE:

I recently ran out of my precious Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I'm very disappointed, however, I do have a back up! =] So, for the rest of the Castor Oil Challenge (ends July 22nd) I will be using the regular clear Castor Oil I got from the Vitamin Shoppe (Home Health Brand, check the pic). I'm quite certain I will see the same results.

Other than that, the challenge is going smoothly. My new growth is kicking right now because it's thick and very coily - I love touching it. I'm supposed to be relaxing tomorrow, but because I don't have a camera as yet, I will be extending my relaxer to 11-12 weeks post (God help me).

  1. Okay, I 'm using regular castor oil as well.I'm getting low so I may purchase JBCO.My ng is coming in real fierce plus I didn't relax bone straight when I did it myself and I am on a 6 month stretch.I do notice that it has seems to make my ng thicker. Idk, too soon to know for sure, But I'm liking what I see.

  2. You'll be fine! I actually never found or purchased the JBCO online, so I've been using the clear regular Castor Oil and I see lots of growth and thickness.

  3. Hi Sunshyne!

    I'm finally finding the time to go through your sites (became a member about 3 months ago!!)and I'm excited to get going with my hair care.

    What exactly is the castor oil challenge--where can I find the directions to do it?

    thanks!

  4. LaQT & Trellis - Great so we`re all on the same tip. Cool. For some reason, I find the regular Castor Oil thicker than JBCO.

  8. Hey Sunshyne! I am just wondering is HBCO the same as the liquid castor oil? Could I put HBCO on my scalp also or does it leave the hair to heavy ? Is the liquid castor oil the same castor oil you can get at walmart as a laxative?

  9. @ Anonymous - I got my castor oil from a bss just a little north of Pickering Mall. I forgot the name. It's close to brock rd & hwy 401. The home health brand is from the vitamin shoppe. I got it in the states. You can purchase it online as well.

    @ Angie - I wouldn't recommend HBCO for the scalp. Straight castor oil is better. Castor Oil is a laxative so yes, that one is fine.

  12. since you are a member of hairlicious you can order from sams247.com and get a twenty percent discount until november 4th 2010 the promo code is LISTA (all caps). I've ordered lots of hair care products from beauty of new york (beautyofnewyork.com) with lots of success, some were hard to fine products, the bjco 8 oz. was 10.99, and they had other product used by Sunshyne, that i could not fine in Indiana. The good thing was you can buy several products and pay one price for everything for shipping. Good luck hope this helps.
