Jamaican Black Castor Oil is the unrefined oil from the castor bean which has no relation to the bean family and has numerous names in other countries such as L'huille Maskerti in Haiti and is the only member of the genus ricinus family. The plant is only native to Africa but has been introduced to other tropical climates around the world.
I have been using Jamaican Black Castor Oil for about 5 years now in my deep conditioners and I love it. Recently, I started using it as a night treatment for my scalp and hair and it has really made a difference in keeping my scalp lubricated and retaining moisture and promoting growth for my hair.
Currently, my hair is plaited up since I'm wearing my wig this week. I use my spray bottle to mist my hair and scalp and than I pour a small amount of the oil at a time in a small bowl and use my fingers to apply it to my scalp and the length of my hair concentrating on the ends, than I place my satin bonnet on for bed.
