            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
