Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Restorative Hair Serum:

I had significant hair loss a few years ago and it never quite grew back. I used to have very thick hair, so this made me very self conscious. After using this product everyday for a month, in varying amounts and ways and in addition to their edge treatment, I have a lot of new growth and my hair feels healthier over all.

          Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Restorative Hair Serum:

          I have used this only twice since buying and so far I am honestly amazed. I had been losing excessive amounts of hair for over a month and tried phyto vials, vitamins, a kerastase treatment, and saw doctors. Nothing seemed to lessen my hair loss. Two uses of this and I noticed less hair fall in the shower, on the floor, and on my clothes. My hair feels alive again, and i am so grateful for this. I use it over night, or before washing. I just massage it into my scalp and let it soak up. I swear, this is my first review for anything hair related. I have caucasian wavy thick/fine hair. This stuff has also made my hair more curly and moisturized. 10/10

            I have only giving 4 stars so far because I have yet to see if my hair grows and if I get new regrowth. I have thinning hair at the moment because of medication and it's more noticeable towards the front my scalp was beginning to show. So I bought this product with hopes of regrowing new hair. After the first use which I used it on my wet hair messaging it onto my scalp but not in large amounts since this is oil after all. After applying it on my wet hair I blow dries it as usual and I right away noticed the thickness at the scalp and my scalp was less visible. I couldn't see my scalp through my hair when getting close to light. That wowed me since I've been conscious of that. Now I'm just hoping to see new hair growth in the thinning areas before I can give it 5 stars.

                    Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Restorative Hair Serum:

                    I have straight thin hair and I was worried about hair loss due to a medical condition. I've been using this product for a few months and it gives my hair an extra boost that it really needed.
                    However I do have straight white people hair so I had to shift the routine a little compared to curly hair use.

                    I'll put this product in my hair maybe overnight or a few hours before i shower and then i'll shower before leaving the house. If I don't shower my hair will look really greasy even if I brush it.

                    I feel like leaving it in and then rinsing it out is what helps the product really get into my hair but then any excess oil that is going to make my hair look greasy goes away. This even worked well when i used a sulfate containing shampoo though it still works even though I don't use a sulfate containing shampoo anymore. I notice a huge difference in hair quality when I don't use it so it's definitely this product that is helping my hair.

                    I highly highly recommend this product.
