Tropical Isle Living Jamaican black Castor Oil Review

The Tropical Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been in my regimen for years now.  It gained popularity so quickly that I was so excited when I first laid my hands on a bottle. The oil is very thick which is why some mix with it with natural oils like olive and coconut oil. Some also use it directly as a result of the  thickness not being an issue.  In the review,  I share how I use and how my hair responds to it.

Wash Day featuring We Naturals hot oil treatment

I had to wash my hair but since I'd been getting questions about the We Naturals hot oil treatment, I decided to do a video of it. After the hot oil treatment, I washed with  Sheamoisture African black soap shampoo and deep conditioned with Cantu sheabutter deep treatment mask.  I used the Cantu sheabutter anti frizz foam leave in conditioner and set the hair on flex rods. That  result was really good as usual. This kind of styling makes it easy for me to wear my hair out during the  week. I got to wash the  hair when I can and apply oils to the strands regularly.  [Youtube=]

Does Jamaican Black Castor Oil Grow Hair?

We continue with search terms that pop up and here's another interesting one. Does Jamaican black castor oil grow hair? The answer I'm going to provide to this question is based on my own experience. Jamaican black castor oil aka jbco has been a popular oil within the hair community. I started using the regular castor about 4 years ago. Now, I use the Jamaican black castor oil because there were claims that it was more organic than the regular or pharmacy castor oil. Well, I can definitely say that if you are consistent with jbco, you'll sure experience faster growth. I've used it to regrow my edges and though I haven't been consistent with it on my scalp, I can attest to the regrowth of the edges. I don't like the tingling jbco; what I had tingles so I didn't want it on my scalp. However, the tropical Isle brand doesn't tingle and that is what I used to regrow my edges. I'm on a castor oil challenge but haven't been consistently using it. I have

I have a short post on how to do hot oil treatments (see here ).  The next thing to tackle is what oil you can use for your treatment.

How To Use Palm Kernel Oil On Hair

Palm kernel oil is one of the wonderful oils God has blessed us with and can thus be easily found in the markets. This oil is derived from the nut of the palm fruit, different from palm oil which is obtained from the fleshy part of the fruit. One characteristic of the palm kernel on the market is the unpleasant smell. Something that tends to pput people off thereby rendering it a less popular oil in the hair journey of most GH ladies. However, the smell shouldn't prevent you from enjoying the benefits of this precious yet inexpensive oil. Read More

Hair Oils In Ghana: Mustard Oil

--> Window shopping is one of my chief means of obtaining info on products before purchasing them. I discovered mustard oil at AnC shopping mall- I use the mall and Madina market a lot because it's easy for me to get there without battling with traffic! Anyways, I purchased mustard oil for less than 10 gh and the size is enough to last a full year even if you are heavy handed. Why? This oil is thick like regular castor oil so you are forced to mix it with other oils to have an even spread lol.
