Fountain Jamaican Black Castor Oil

AfroDeity's Online Store will be opening tomorrow and will be stocking Jamaican Black Castor Oil. 

Authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) will generally be made in the same way, years ago my auntie used to make some for my mum in her back garden in Jamaica. Making it the traditional way by manually grinding the beans and extracting the oil is generally the same across the board. Fountain's JBCO is authentic and made in Jamaica. 

Whatever brand you buy make sure you use it correctly. Please see our Where to Buy page if you would like to know where to purchase Jamaican Black Castor Oil  in the UK and our notes on Jamaican Black Castor Oil's correct use

If you decide you would like to purchase Fountain JBCO we are currently their exclusive distributor in the UK & EU and plan to always be in stock. Buy from  trusted source and get a quality product.

Cantu Shea Butter: 10 months on

Hi All,

I thought I would just update you on how I am doing with this. Unfortunately I have slowly fallen out of love with the range, I did go all out and buy all the products which are quite nice to use but that sweet smell does become quite overwhelming after a while and I found that I haven't actually touched any of these products for a couple of months now!

I can't say I didn't enjoy using them, they were great for hydrating my hair, but I hate when I am 'aware' of my hair, so smell does play an important part in me dumping these. It is not a bad smell, quite the opposite, it is just that it is quite strong.

If you have had a good experience with these let us know, but for me I have some half used tubs that I have filed away under 'dumped'.

Help! I lost my Tangle Teezer!

Agh! I had a work related thing today and as usual left my makeup and hair to the last minute. Suit on, bra tucked, no VPL, makeup in place and no threads hanging, ready for business. So all I have to do now is comb my hair and rush down to the car right....wrong!
After applying leave in and sealing oils I wanted to style my hair back in a pony tail. This usually involves brushing it back with my tangle teezer. However I went away for the weekend and I couldn't see it in my suitcase... Argh! What am I suppose to do now? I found an old pin point brush and started to use that and I could feel my hair being torn out. I just couldn't carry on with it, I didn't realise how dependent I had gotten on the damn thing, and when you are 10 weeks post relaxer and stretching, a comb just isn't enough and takes too long.

OK, OK let's search the entire house again... sigh I am going to be late!

Luckily I found it in one of the kid's bags... YAY!
Brushed my hair in a flash without breaking all my hair off and off to meeting in time ... PHEW!

I use my tangle teezer daily and have found it to be a life saver for my ends especially when stretching. I didn't realise I used it so much and one year on, I am very happy with this purchase. I don't use it to actually comb my hair through but smoothing and brushing my hair back it is perfect. Obviously you do get some hairs in the brush but nowhere near as much as with my bristle boar or pin bristle brushes.

So after a year I have to give the Tangle Teezer the thumbs up!!

10 Weeks post Relaxer

Hi All,

I am 10 weeks post relaxer and sometimes I have to remind myself why am doing this. For those of you that haven't seen the beginning of my hair care journey  thought I would post this. It really helps me to see these pictures and realise how far I have come.

It also helps me remember how much confidence I have now and how much I love my hair... now, as it is! No wigs and no pieces, as that is my preference.

However you do wear your hair, it is always a good idea to keep a record to inspire yourself to carry on.
If you are out there and anyone is reading this, I know how you feel, I really do, because honestly I have been there and I have tried ever hair care thing there is going to make my hair work for me. Any fad, any product and every style going (braids, plaits, canerows, weave, wigs) and I have spent so much on my hair to see no results until the day I took the pictures above at my lowest point and realise I had to do something.

If you are just starting your hair care journey or have been on this journey for a while now and want to share it with others, email me at, we would love to hear from you!
