    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    This stuff SAVED my skin. Just last week I was literally crying in the shower every day cause of how awful my skin was looking. I'm an obsessive picker and had scabs and scars that were ruining my self confidence. Ive had this stuff for a few months but forgot about it and just a few days ago I started using it again as a night moisturizer and to take my makeup off and omg I went out shopping today and didn't wear any makeup for the first time in like years. I'll sometimes mix a drop of argan oil in it to thin it out (I use physicians formula which I also love), or lavender oil/tea tree oil for added benefit and my skin hasn't looked this good since I was in high school. This is the only brand of Castor oil that I've tried and I don't think I'll be switching any time soon. I also am seeing a slight difference in my eyebrow and eyelash growth which is awesome too. I adore this magical oil!!!!!!!!

            I purchased this product from a recommendation of my hair stylist. I felt this oil was too thick and caked the hair too easily. I'm sure it works for others, but wasn't the product for me! Returning to the store.

                  I like the product because a lil goes a long way. I use it on my scalp and the ends of my hair and I see a major improvement in the dry and damaged ends. It's also thickening the edges.

                  I only use this oil on my thin areas, and edges. The oil is thick so its a little hard to pump out, but I somewhat like that so I don't use too much of it. The scent is pretty strong for me, but it doesnt last beyond a few hours which is great. I use this on mainly wet hair.

                      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.

                        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.
