Product DescriptionTropic isle's living Jamaican black castor oil is a rich, light brown oil which is processed the old fashioned way by roasting the castor bean. Jamaican black castor oil origin can be traced back to Ethiopia, Africa. It's believed that this natural castor oil originally came to Jamaica from slaves taken from Africa. Jamaican elders didn't waste any time in discovering the various uses for this oil. Black castor oil is a great addition to any hair or skincare regimen. This castor oil can be use as is or add to your favorite hair products.
I think the Jamaican black castor oil is the same as the Haitian black castor oil my mom used to use on my hair as a child. They smell the same and they definitely look the same. I love to use this oil on my head overnight. I apply it to my scalp and my hair before going to bed. I put a plastic cap on and wrap my hair with a head scarf. It does not have to be a silk scarf since my hair is already covered with a plastic cap. I use it that way for two reasons. Number one, I don't have to walk around with my hair smelling bad. And number two, I think the heat generated by my body with the help of the plastic cap helps the product penetrate both the cuticles and follicles. I usually rinse my hair the next morning after using the product. I do that about twice a week. I really love the difference.
