Hey Afro Frenzies! Oils and butters are a huge part of a Naturals life style. I mean where would we be with out our whipped butters and our mixed oils. In TURMOIL, is the only answer I can come up with.
Well Frenzies, I would like to share with you my first experience applying Jamaican black castor oil to my hair. I know right I’m uber late on this one. But it wasn’t until a few months ago that I started using this particular oil.
I usually stick to light oils like coconut oil and almond oil. Actually that’s what I apply on the daily. I have used products that have contained Jamaican Black Castor oil, but I haven’t tried it in its natural state (oil). I’m not saying an auntie or my mom haven’t thrown it up in there in the past I just haven’t.
Let me just break down my first impression. Jamaican Black Castor oil is a lot thicker then the other oils I tend to use. But baby it gets the job done. A little bit goes along way. I heard that it was thick but literally about 5 small drops(less than a handful) covered the length of my hair.
That’s saying something. Cuz if you know like I know ya girl is heavy-handed. I now have a new appreciation for The thicker oils especially Jamaican Black Castor oil.
In addition to using it in my wiped butters and gels it is now an addition to my daily oils. However, I will say the consistency took some getting use to because it in fact is very thick. The viscosity is borderline sticky and the smell as most know is a little stronger than lighter oils. However, the benefits that your hair will experience is worth any thing that may make it an acquired taste if you will. Remember, be happy, be curly, be you, and you will never fail!
