- Jamaican black castor oil or other organic castor oil
- Jojoba oil
- Measuring spoon
- Plastic hair cap
Select a high-quality castor oil that is suitable for cosmetic or therapeutic use. Jamaican black castor oil is a type of castor oil chosen often because it has a lighter consistency than the other types. It is also a "raw" and unrefined, so it has been processed less and has retained more of the nutrients that help health. Organic castor oil should provide the quality desired as well.
Pour 1 tbsp. of the castor oil into the palm of your hand. Using your fingertips, massage the oil into your scalp, the roots of your hair and all the way down the length of your hair. Make sure the oil is evenly distributed on the entire surface of your scalp.
Place the plastic hair cap on your head then wrap your head in towel. The plastic cap will hold in the heat generated by your body and the heat helps the oils to penetrate deeper. Allow the oil to saturate your hair and scalp for at least 15 to 20 minutes, or overnight.
Towel or air dry your hair and style as usual. Repeat this castor oil treatment once a week for between six and eight weeks.
