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

    I had been using straight Jamaican Black Castor Oil to help thicken my hair. When I saw this I decided to give it a go. Glad I did -- it smells heavenly and has a much better consistency for smoothing onto the scalp. Since I have thin hair no way I could use this and go out the door, I use this as a nighttime treatment for my hair. I shampoo in the morning and my hair has more shine that it ever has. Love it.

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

      I wanted to love this product but it always leaves my hair so greasy. I apply it to the bottom of my scalp when I get out of the shower and it leaves my hair oily when it dries and I only apply 2-3 drops. I'll just have to use is as a treatment before I get into the shower so I know I can shampoo it out.

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

          After I had my son I had lots of hair loss and it came to the point that I had bald spots and I was on the search for a hair product that will somewhat help my hair. So I came across this product and I read the reviews and immediately I wanted to give this product a try. When I received it I put a couple of drops on the palm of hand and I massaged my scalp. I have been using this product every night before I go to bed for about two weeks and I absolutely see the results. My hair is starting to go back to healthy and my bald spots are slowly growing hair and I am satisfied. I would definitely re-purchase this product again!!

                As mentioned in the 'cons' section, if you have white hair, this product does discolor hair yellow. It does a lovely job of moisturizing hair that is damaged and dry.

                  My hair is natural and has a variety of textures. I bought this product to improve thinning on top and a receding hairline on one side. The difference, after using this serum, is quite observable! Doubled my second order because I didn't want to "run out" or have the item become unavailable. By the way, I'm 85!!!

                    My hair used to be super thick and curly. A few years ago I have done a Japanese perm and ever since then I have suffered hair loss and has seen multiple bald patches. I want to know if this is strong enough to cover up the patches with new hair growth? If I stop using this product when I get my desired look, will my hair go thin again? Thank you.
