Hey guys! How’s your week going? I am a delighted to be back again ‘blogging for the sake of love’ 😘. You see recently,  I took down my braids and noticed my hair was thinning out because of the prolonged protective hairstyle.  So I decided to dig up my ‘beauty journal’ and get me the ‘hack’ I used in the past to volumize my hair.

And here it is!

Some years ago, my hair stylist introduced me to the Castor Oil Scalp Massage Regimen. Believe me, I thought Castor oil was only used as a laxative, little did I know it will increase my natural hair density.

I have used two brands of Castor oil, Bell’s B: finest cold pressed castor oil and Tropic Isle Living: Jamaican black castor oil. After experimenting the former gave me better results. Unfortunately, Bell’s B: finest cold pressed castor oil is expensive and not readily available in US stores so I use  Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil  instead

So here are my thoughts on this product.

Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil 4 Oz on Amazon  / $7.22*

Tropic Isle Living: Jamaican black castor oil on Jumia  / ₦3,650

*    Prime add on item

🌟Star rating: ★★★★
This product got my four-star rating because it is not as active as cold pressed castor oil. It took longer for me to see any results.

Pros: Cools and calms scalp during a message.  Moisturizes dry hair and scalp.  Good for all hair types. It contains Organic and plant-based ingredients (vegan). A bottle can last up to 6 months with daily application.
Product of 🇺🇸USA

Cons: It has a funny minty smell 👎🏼 (Every lady deserves to have their hair whiff a sweet and romantic scent).

I recommend castor oil for scalp massage and hair treatment because it adds volume and strengthens hair shaft without harsh chemicals.

Now you can achieve that luscious hair you’ve dreamt of without breaking the bank.

  1. I was told that this product reduces breakage of the hair. Hence, I tried it. Instead, it made my hair denser as Iriowen has said in this blog, but it could not prevent my hair from breaking often.
