Jamaican black castor oil for hair growth is absolutely worth it. Not only does it promote hair growth, as it is extremely beneficial in cases of hair loss, too. In this article we’ll guide you through its benefits and show you how to apply it for better results. Whether you are looking for general nourishing for your hair, or more intense case, we promise you’ll become a fan.
What is Jamaican black castor oil?
As all castor oils, Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) is made from the beans/seeds of the castor plant. It differs from the other castor oils in its processing method. Instead of being made out of pressed fresh seeds, it is made by first roasting the seeds and them pressing them. This process will create some ash, which is very alkaline (meaning a higher pH), enabling the product to work the scalp better. Because it is also warmer than the original castor oil, it is best suited for dry hair or dry scalps, being also the ideal product if you aim at thickening your hair. However, all types of skin and hair can well welcome JBCO because it does its work on the roots and scalp, and not in the hair itself.
What is it used for?
There are many properties of Jamaican black castor oil. Not only it does wonders for your hair, it is also incredibly good for your skin. One of them is its ability to clear acne and blemish and tighten the pores, due to the presence of omega 3 fatty accids. When applied to hair, it has the ability to clear the scalp, and so also works as an exfoliator. Besides, by nurturing your hair, it will increase blood flow to the scalp, which will make your hair grow faster and better: JBCO will help your hair thicken and strengthen as it moisturises and prevents hairloss as well.
How can it help me with hairloss?
JBCO is rich in omega 9 fatty acids, ricinoleic rare fatty acid, and antioxidants. Translation? This means that Jamaican Black Castor Oil is able to turn thinning hair to strong and thick hair. It is able to improve your hair’s condition, fighting against hair damage and breakage. It is thus extremely beneficial in cases of temporary hairloss, making your hair shinier and stronger. In cases of genetic hairloss the results won’t be as noticeable, although JBCO will still do its work contributing to more hair strength.
How to use it?
For better results, apply Jamaican black castor oil generously on damp hair, focusing on the roots. Massage your hair thoroughly by stimulating the scalp with your fingertips. This way you will be nurturing the hair follicles and not just the hair. A right massage is halfway to the success of JBCO! Place your fingertips on the sides of your head and, in circular motions, use your thumbs to massage the skull. Work your fingertips in all directions to make sure you stimulate the whole head, and use some pressure for an extra relaxing time 😉 When you feel like you’re done, wrap a towel around your head and leave it for a couple of hours. You can do this several times a week. Alternatively, you can leave it overnight for better results. Rinse thoroughly to remove the product and use shampoo to wash it out.
Jamaican black castor oil for hair growth is worth at least a shot. In a world with no miracles, JBCO is close to being one itself! It should definitely be the next item on your list. It is a very complete oil and the perfect organic solution for your hair, especially if you have damaged or dry hair. Besides, it is a relatively cheap product compared to chemical drugstore products. Make sure you incorporate JBCO in your (at least) weekly self-care routine, and use it as an excuse to give yourself that massage you need 😉
