7 Ways To Incorporate Jamaican Black Castor Oil Into Your Regimen

Tropic_Isle_Living_Jamaican_Black_Castor_Oil_8_oz__42314.1410671889.1200.1200

Believe it or not my experience with castor oil when I was growing up had nothing to do with hair. I remember every year right when summer vacation was ending and it was almost time to return to school my mom would come up with some concoction for my brother and I to drink and somehow castor oil with orange juice as a chaser was always a popular option.

I will save you the gory details about what the mix was for but I remember how gross it tasted and how much I hated doing it. I literally regressed every ice cream cone I ate every summer by the time September 1st rolled around.

I also remember my grandma using it on her knees for arthritis and it being recommended for back pain and all sorts of ailments. It was as if castor oil cured everything, but that's a whole other post.

In recent years castor oil has become really popular in hair care, the oil has been used to thicken everything from the hair on your head, to eyelashes and eye brows. It is also known to add moisture to the hair when used properly, and to strengthen strands when incorporated into a healthy hair regimen.

I use a little bit about 3 times a week. I use the Jamaican Black Castor Oil with Rosemary though. Very good for growth, can even be used to grow your lashes and brows. Just put a little on a Q-tip and rub it in at night before bed. =)

I started my natural journey about a year and a half ago. As I use up my current stash of products, I am slowly converting to using only Shea Moisture; their entire line of Jamaican Black Castor Oil products! It’s tempting to buy the entire line right now, but I don’t want to become a product junkie. I use up something I already have, then replace it with the JBC equivalent.
