I have been meaning to write up a review for Jamaican Black Castor Oil for a while now. Recently I just finished my very first bottle of it and I bought it just over a year ago. The first thing that I noticed is that it is quite thick when you try to do anything with it. So I happened to mix mine with coconut oil. I have added it to my conditioners as well, which I use in an undiluted condition. I add just about a teaspoon or more to the amount of conditioner that I need for that one time.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil is dark colored and the smell may remind you to roasted nuts. The smell is pretty strong but it isn’t as bad once you have it diluted or added to condition. It is also a lot thicker than regular castor oil. I use my oil mix of coconut oil and castor oil when my hair is braided or placed in cornrows. I also happen to apply it to a lightly clean scalp. When I undo the cornrows it works well too. I apply it liberally to the scalp along the lines of the cornrows with an applicator bottle then proceed to undo them. This way the oil would be in my hair and keep it lubricated. I also used the oil mix for doing overnight pre-shampoo type of treatments.
How to use Jamaican Black Castor Oil
I would apply the oil mix to my scalp as well as hair before bed, and wear a plastic cap that is tied in place with a scarf. I would then shampoo my hair the next morning. When the weather is still cool, you will notice that the coconut mixture will cause it to solidify.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil results
The one thing that I really noticed about Jamaican Black Castor Oil is that it caused my hair to be really soft. I am not sure if it caused it to grow or not, which is what it is really popular for, but it did make my hair super soft, especially after a pre-shampoo treatment. It comes down to the question on whether or not I would buy it, the answer happens to be definitely.
