    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    I've been using this product for three days now. There is a section of hair on my hair line that is thin and almost looks like a bald spot but after using this product for 3 days I'm already seeing great results! My hair is starting to fill up and become thicker! I put the product in before bed and keep it on all night. I usually use it when I'm planning to wash my hair the next morning because it does make my hair look greasy and the product doesn't really smell great. I have also been using this on my eyelashes since they are very thin and I have noticed that they are becoming thicker! Absolutely love this product so far!

    This product helps maintain moisture and promotes healthy thick hair growth. I would not recommend daily use on thin or non wavy/curly hair. The product is a very heavy oil

    it's the truth

    By sweeneye

    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    When I was 12 I shaved off a corner of my right eyebrow and it has never grown back. I used this on that corner and it grew back! I also apply this to my eyelashes and I've noticed that my already long, thick lashes have become even longer, thicker, and softer.

      The lady who does my eyebrows took way too much off the last time, I bought this and applied it on my brows over night.. They look fuller and feel better already! I was worried about breaking out (sensitive skin) but if anything it's smoothed out my skin.

        I have eczema in my scalp and once I got in my 40s it became worse, especially with using chemical relaxers to straighten my 4c type african american hair. A friend recommended this and I can't thank them enough! This product is AWESOME! I've only been using it for two days but I can already see the difference. Normally after I wash my hair my scalp is tight and beginning to flake immediately even after I apply olive oil on it.

                      We strongly advise that you do not use this product on your eyelashes. It is only meant for use on your hair and scalp. It can also cause irritation if you get it in your eyes.

                  • Q:

                    I know you pump once or twice and spread it evenly through your hair and scalp. Do you leave it in or need to wash it out? If you wash it out, how long do you leave it in for before you wash it out? Do you put it on when your hair is wet, damp, or dry?

                      You can leave it in throughout the day. A little goes a long way for sure! We would suggest putting this on when your hair is towel dried/ damp or when it is dry for best results.

                      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.
