AfroDeity Castor Oil Challenge Take 2: November 2013

AfroDeity Castor Oil Challenge

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in on our very first challenge. We have really been looking forward to doing it again and hope you will all join in once more.

What is a Castor Oil Challenge?

The aim of the challenge is to use castor oil as an aid in growing/thickening your hair by using it at least three times a week in various ways. This challenge will last 3 months. Here are some ways you can use castor oil on your hair.

Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil as a pre shampoo treatment. 
Daily Maintenance: Apply small amounts of Jamaican Black Castor Oil daily to your hair roots and scalp. Then massage the oil into your scalp using your finger tips. You can leave the oil on your scalp overnight. Shampoo out in the morning. 
Once per week use Jamaican Black Castor Oil as a Hot Oil Treatment . 
Add it to your deep conditioner as a moisturising agent. 
Seal moisture on the ends, prevents the moisture leaving the hair easily after it has been applied. 

What's the big deal about Castor Oil?

Castor Oil is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and is a source of rinoleic acid and many essential fatty acids. It can be used to combat hair loss, treat scalp infection, helps treat split ends, conditions, moisturises, encourages hair growth and give the appearance of thicker hair.
Our favourite type of Castor Oil at AfroDeity is Jamaican Black Castor Oil and you can get this at the AfroDeity Store before the Challenge starts.
