      Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

      I used this product to grow back my eyebrows and it worked. After about 2wks of applying after showering I noticed fine hairs growing back where they had been plucked sparse before and had not been growing back. I have continued the treatment for about 6months now and my brows are 80% back to what they use to be in the teen years. Not a complete miracle but really happy with the results considering I'm getting close to 40. The thicker brows give me a more youthful look. I like that it is natural and I am not covering myself with chemicals especially after having breast cancer and I'm trying to reduce the about of chemicals I put on my skin.

        Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

        I started losing hair about a year ago. It seemed like in the spring it was making a comeback, but by August it was falling out really bad again, especially on the front and sides of my scalp. I have been using Nioxin for the past year which has helped but isn't all I had hoped it would be. I read about Castor Oil helping with hair growth so I thought I'd give this a try. It does have a very thick consistency, like a syrup, but quickly absorbs into your skin. I have been using it around my hairline, on my brows, and lashes. After 2 weeks of nightly use, I noticed fine baby hairs sprouting all along the hairline. My brows are getting slightly darker and it seems like my lashes are growing and are a bit darker too! I think this oil is a bit challenging to use all over your scalp due to the consistency, so I would suggest the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Restorative Hair Serum instead of this oil. Overall though, I think this has given great results and I would suggest giving it a try. I have been impressed with the SheaMoisture products so far and would like to try more. I love that this product line is cruelty free!

          Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

          I am using this product on my face not my hair. It is way too thick and sticky to use in your hair. Has the consistency of rubber cement. However a pin size drop on my face, particularly deep lines, seems to be helping. I use it before I go to sleep not during the day because it's too thick, oily and sticky it also doesn't smell so great

          I had bought this oil because I suffered from color treated damaged. I've been using it on my hair and I love it. I'm not crazy about the smell but I combine it with argan oil and it mellows out the smell. It's pretty thick so that's also why I combine it with the argan oil.

            I've been using a spoolie to apply this at night to my eyebrows and eyelashes. It's only been a few weeks but my hairs look darker and my eyelashes look longer! Other reviews complain about the scent, but it IS castor oil.

                      The SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil does not contain SPF and should not be used as a tanning product. This is a restorative beauty treatment that moisturizes, stimulates and promotes healthy hair and skin.
