JBCO is great for all hair types and performs best when it’s massaged into your scalp because it works on the hair root/follicle and not just the hair itself. It will moisturize, thicken, strengthen and rapidly increase hair growth. JBCO increases blood flow to the scalp, supplies valuable nutrients to hair follicles, it will also prevent hair breakage, dandruff, eczema, alopecia, thinning hair, bald spots and dry itchy scalp; including in the eyebrows and eyelashes.
JBCO vs. Other Castor Oils: According to www.naturallycurly.com, over the past ten years it has been established scientifically that Jamaican Black Castor oil has nothing in it that will harm your hair and it is more effective than the clear pharmacy castor oil because of the ash content due to roasting of the castor bean…NOT A MYTH A PROVEN FACT! The scientific name for the castor bean is Ricinus Communis; it’s organic and sulfate-free! Authentic JBCO is dark brown in color and accompanied with the traditional burnt smell. Castor oil has been used medically for over 4,000 years for many different aliments. It’s native to East Africa but made its way to Jamaica via the slave trade and is now manufactured the oil fashioned way there.
Although, I initially stated that you may have to mix JBCO with something else, it’s not necessary to do so. I’ve used it both ways, mixed with other oils; water or Shea Butter and I’ve applied it directly to my scalp without mixing. You can make this determination once you know how your hair reacts to this oil.
Now, to get us started…
