5 Ways I Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil | HairliciousInc.com

I get a lot of questions as to how I use Jamaican Black Castor Oil in my hair regimen! It's a known fact that many either LOVE or  h a t e  this oil because it's so thick and has a burnt ashy scent - I'm a huge fan by the way :)! These unique qualities, among others,  really make this oil stand out from the rest. I personally love this oil because it serves multiple purposes that I consider useful and have made an impact on my hair throughout my hair journey.

Just a quick recap - JBCO has been in my regimen since 2009/2010. My stylist introduced it to me and I read rave reviews on several hair forums back then. I tested this oil out for myself and noticed a significant growth increase just by applying it to my scalp weekly. I then created a series of Castor Oil Challenges with hundreds of participants in order to achieve increased growth and thickness together! It was a huge success.

Since then, I continued to incorporate JBCO into my hair regimen in several different ways that have truly been beneficial in promoting growth while improving the health of my hair. Below is a quick rundown of the 5 Ways I Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil in My Hair Regimen:

1. Scalp Hair Growth Oil - I apply this oil to my scalp at least 1-2 per week to promote healthy hair growth. I notice thicker new growth and more length on relaxer day (or when I flat iron) by consistently using JBCO on a clean scalp. Too, it works so well for my edges!

2. Deep Conditioner Addition - If I notice my hair is very dry and brittle I'll add 1-2 tsps (along with my 3 penetrating oils - avocado, coconut and olive oil) to my deep conditioner. JBCO really helps to soften my hair and draw moisture into my strands (acts as a humectant). It works like a charm!

3. Sealant - I don't do this often, but it works!  There's nothing like a little JBCO to lock in moisture on your ends when doing a braid out, twist out or bun. I've done this several times and I always notice increased shine, softness and hydration in my strands. Of course, a little goes a long way!

4. Soften New Growth - JBCO works wonders on my new growth which really helps when stretching my relaxers. It softens my type 4b/c new growth and gives it a nice shine. I section off my hair and apply a thin layer to my scalp and new growth. Oh, I just love it!

5. Relaxer Touch-up Protection - For years I've used JBCO as a scalp base prior to my relaxer touch-ups to prevent burning and/or irritation. This thick oil creates a protective barrier between your hair and skin from the relaxer. It's perfect!! I would also run some JBCO down the length of my previously relaxed hair (starting right after the new growth) to prevent relaxer run-off and overlapping!

JBCO is "liquid gold"
