    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    I have very sparse eyebrow hair and my eyelashes are very thin and short. I have heard a lot of people talk about the effectiveness of growth serums, but quite frankly, the thought of putting processed chemicals on my body, especially near my eyes is not ideal. Jamaican castor oil is all natural, organic, and only one ingredient. This makes me feel much safer putting something so pure on my lashes and brows. I bought a cheap mascara and rinsed it out. Then I filled it with castor oil and brush my lashes and brows until they are saturated (best at night). I have been using this for about three weeks and I haven't noticed them get longer but they have darkened a little and less of them are falling out!

    Great for hair growth

    By Erin

    from WA

    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    Im always looking for something to grow my hair faster, whether its the hair on my head, my lashes or my brows. Being a hairstylist I read many places that castor oil was a great natural oil that helps grow hair. When I saw this on the shelves along with the other Shea oils I grabbed two bottles. Be forewarned that castor oil does have a very earthy and potent smell and I didn't expect less from this product. However that being said, you can mix this into your leave in conditioners and other hair products which dilutes the smell while still giving you results. It's very thick so it is easy to accidentally over do it, a little goes a long way. With continual use you will definitely see results and I recommend this oil to all my clients who are looking for hair growth products.

    Smells terrible, Very sticky

    By GiGi

    from Manhattan, NY

    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    I was not expecting this stuff to smell wonderful, but it is the worst smelling castor oil Ive ever tried. It is also very, very, sticky so i wouldnt recommend using it in your hair unless you use a tiny drop mixed with a leave in conditioner (to counteract the stickiness and the smell). I might try using it on my eyelashes and brows instead at night

    Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

    Have been using black castor oil on my lashes and brows to help strengthen and thicken. Was a Latisse user until I noticed dark circles under my eyes that had NEVER been there before -- ugh. So I read about using this. I spread a coat on before bed and so far so good. My lashes look good and my brows are thicker than they used to be.

    I like this brand because it has an easy applicator, but be forewarned about the smell -- it has an ashy smell which I have grown accustomed to and kind of enjoy, but a lot of people find it to be a deal breaker. For this price it's worth checking out to see how you feel about it.

    Oh, I also use it along my hairline to help thicken certain areas. I have baby growth where I apply it so I know it's working.

        I was super excited to try this product, as I live all the other products from this brand. I did not, however, like this particular one. It smells really bad, I can't get past it, def returning it. I gave it about a week and it's just not working out. If you're particular about smells, think twice about this before purchasing it.

          Comments about SheaMoisture 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil:

          I have been using this product by itself and at times with coconut oil 2-3 times a week on my scalp and have seen a vast improvement in my thinning hair. I usually apply it right before going to bed and wash it out when I wake up. The texture of the oil is thick but having the coconut oil makes it easy to apply (and also adds healthy omega 3's/6's, other essential nutrients for hair development). The coconut oil also helps with the smell which can be somewhat overpowering. I am 25 years old and have been working overnight for the past 6 months, as much as I love my job, constantly adjusting my sleep schedule has been difficult on my body. I had noticed in that time' hair loss, some grey hair and just no lifelessness to it. This oil has really saved my hairs life. I had been plucking the few greys that I had found but since using the oil I have yet to find anymore (i'm not sure if I got lucky or it is the oil). Im just grateful to have come across this product.
