      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!!!

      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.

              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.

                  • Q:

                    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.
