              Castor is very effective for healthy hair growth! Took off one star because the pump is horrible :( Would be better off with a dropper :)

              Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

              2 things: 1. the pump sucks would be much happier with a dropper 2. the smell is strong and offensive and super grossly thick BUT im still giving is 5 stars why because it repaired my dry damaged ends! I have medium length 2A hair that has been bleached, dyed and toned so many times in 2016 that i lost count! On 2A hair oil has to be used very minimal so i do not use on my roots or top half of hair (i use 1 pump of the argan by shea for the top half) BUT i do use this only on my ends every other day even after wash day when my hair is still damp. I comb or brush my hair depending if my hair is dry or damp. I gather my hair into a loose ponytail and take 1 pump rub it into my hands and rub it into half of my pony tail and do the same to the other half. So 2 pumps is all you need. Then i take a boar bristle brush and brush my pony tail to make sure it is distributed, wash my hands and let it sit for 20 miutes. Then i brush or comb my hair again and done. Now this may not work for everyone but my ends are so dry and damaged and that they literally suck in the oil and they are never oily or feel oily, just smooth and actually feel like there was never any damage. I could see and feel the difference in my ends after the 1st use and ive been using this for a while now and my ends have actually have life back to them.

              I use the castor oil in my hair, my eyebrows and lashes. I just mix it in with my daily hair products and I use it along with avocado oil for my eyebrows and lashes and they've grown and gotten thicker-- when I thread my eyebrows they look amazing. Two things, it has a VERY STRONG smell and it's abbot thick to pump out.

              Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

              Ok so I am incredibly amazed by this product and I am seriously happy I found this! I used to have a huge styes and in order for me to relieve it I had to pluck an eyelash out. I used to have a really noticeable bald spot on my lash line because of it. But holy moly after using this for maybe a week or so, I definitely noticed changes! I noticed that my lashes and brows are growing in, and I am not kidding when I thought that I was going to have those bald spots forever. I will definitely repurchase this over and over again!

                  A:

                  You can use this product as a leave-in and it should not leave your hair looking oily because our 100% Pure Oils are formulated to be light weight. However, if you're looking for a Leave-In Conditioner with the same great benefits, we actually have on in the same Collection. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner is made just for this. This Product should help to strengthen, moisturize and soften hair. Be sure not to overapply as a little goes a long way.
