          Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

          I bought this because I read online that castor oil is used for eyebrow and eyelash growth. My brows have always been very thin and sparse so I thought I would give it a try. It's been about 2 weeks and I already notice a difference, my eyebrow hairs are darker, thicker, re-growing quickly! I apply every night before bed, and surprisingly it does not clog my pores at all. I would buy this again if I ever need to, but I only apply it to my eyebrows and I think this bottle will last me forever.

              Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

              Aside from the overwhelmingly unpleasant smell, it was like putting sticky molasses in my hair. There's another black castor oil that shea moisture makes and i'll stick with that. I returned this after i could barely get through the first use.

              Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

              I was told to purchase this to help with my lips, which are often very trying and cracked. This oil did not penetrate the surface skin but instead sat on my lips. The taste was not great either. Was really looking for something that was going to work its way to the deeper layers and moisturize my lips.

              I used the product alone at first (huge mistake) broke out pretty badly on my forehead! Now I use it in my conditioner and it works wonders. Was reading up on this product and it's uses and figured it would work for my hairloss due to a thyroid condition. It did my brows are so thick and so are my edges. Loved this product
