Jamaican Black Castor Oil



I have just tried Jamaican Black Castor Oil for the first time, as recommended by several American blogs on the internet and was amazed. My hair felt like silk. I put it on my hair and covered with a plastic cap for an hour (doing housework etc) before washing out with the Boots Coconut and Almond Conditioner. I then used the Joico Moisturising Repair Conditioner as my main conditioner and my hair feels so clean and velvety today. Amazing!! My roots also feel softer and easier to comb and the breakage has let up slightly but still some broken hairs. I am hoping prolonged use will decrease this. I doubt this is a miracle product but so far I only have good things to say about this.

I got  Jamaican Black Castor Oil from  a seller on Ebay for £19.99 but there are several other sites that I have seen mentioned. I will check them out and get back to you

"Jamaican Black Castor Oil is know to cleanse toxins from the scalp, nourish and thicken the hair, stimulate hair growth, moisturise dry brittle hair, repair split ends, and give hair body and bounce."


Also the stuff I ordered from rootsnsculpture turned up today, so top marks for them as I was unable to find Elasta QP DPR anywhere else online ( posting from the UK) and now have a nice big pot. I have heard good things about this also, so will keep you posted.


Embrace Your Inner AfroDeity!

I have been unable to find anymore JBCO on ebay and it would be good to find a cheap reliable source
This website has it for £3.30, but it is not the tropic island living brand
http://www.akuawood.co.uk/product.php?productid=124&cat=18&page=1

If anyone has tried this let us know... othrwise this will be my next stop if i cant find nother source soon

This american site Sams
www.sams247.com/SearchResult.aspx?KeyWords=castor
has the tropic island living brand but postage to Europe can be high

After much searching I couldn't find anymore on ebay but

I haven't tried them yet so I cant recommend or review

Sam's Carribbean store also sells this and post to the UK

However depending on what you order shipping t the UK runs from $13 - £73!

but its just not the same

and Amazon.co.uk had these
http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_0_7?url=search-alias%3Ddrugstore&field-keywords=castor+oil&x=0&y=0&sprefix=castor+
