Is It Safe To Use Haitian or Jamaican Black Castor Oil On Children's Hair?



               I know a lot of you might be wondering if it is safe to use Haitian or Jamaican black castor oil on your daughters' hair. From personal experience,  I can say that it is safe to use it on your child's hair. The same extraction method is used for both oils. These are two all natural oils that are completely safe for both children and adults.
                Castor oil is the only oil used on babies in Haiti. We use it to keep their hair soft after each wash, and we also use it on their bodies when they have a fever. My daughter was born with multiple allergies. She is allergic to milk, eggs, fish, peanuts, and wheat, but she is not allergic to the oil at all. I try not to use too much on her scalp because the product has a strong scent, but I use it to massage her scalp and seal the moisture in after washing her hair.
A few things you should know: 
  • Run a test before applying the oil on the child's scalp, as it can make the scalp itchy.
  • Don't use the oil more than 3 times a week.
  • Wash the child's hair the next day to keep the scalp clean.
  • Stop using the product if you notice a rash on the scalp, or if the scalp starts bleeding.

    1. Hi,
      Sorry for the late reply. My daughter was born with a lot of hair, but she lost it all because she was allergic to eggs and I did not know it. I was eating eggs and breastfeeding her at the same time. I washed her hair with the original head & shoulders only about once a week. I sealed the hair with castor oil instead of coconut oil because she is also allergic to tree nuts. If you want her hair to grow, you have to use castor oil. It helped me a lot.
      I hope that helps. Please send me an email if you have more questions. chicfromhair2toe@gmail.com.
      Thanks!

    1. AUSSIE 3-MINUTE MIRACLE is the best moisturizing conditioner that I have used since I started my hair journey 3 years ago. I know that coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, avocado oil dry out my hair too. The only oil that does not dry out my hair so far is Castor oil and Extra virgin olive oil. Remember to add water to her hair before using any oil. Some oils mimic protein and dry out the hair. So, always make sure you add the oil after you wash or spritz the hair with water. Any moisturizing shampoo that does not contain any trace of protein should be good for her hair. But you won't know for sure until you experience with different ones.
