The Benefits Of Jamaican Black Castor Oil For Hair

I can remember about 10-12 years ago, before I created Butta Babee, jamaican black castor oil was becoming very popular in the black hair care community.  I can remember being apart of the online hair care forums and everyone raving about how well it worked for growing hair and keeping the hair healthy.  At the time, I was searching for natural hair care products that would help me keep my hair in tip top shape.  So I took a chance and purchased the oil.  The moment I received it, I was disappointed in the scent.  But, once I got pass this I was able to experience the benefits of jamaican black castor oil for the hair.  There are several benefits of using the oil in your hair and I will talk about them below.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil For Hair Growth

Jamaican black castor oil is known to increase hair growth at a rapid rate.  I can honestly say that I love it. It is one of the reasons why we have it as one of our ingredients in our Follicle Awakening Hair Oil.  It increases blood flow to the scalp while supplying nutrients needed inorder for the hair to grow.   This oil is great at growing hair because of the ricinoleic acid contents it contains.  Ricinoleic acid locks in the moisture and promotes a healthy and clean scalp, by removing toxins and fungus.  These are all very important factors if you are serious about growing your hair long and healthy.  Interestingly enough castor oil contains about 90% of ricinoleic acid.  Why wouldn’t you use jamaican black castor oil to grow your hairout?!

Prevents Hair Breakage

The reason so many people rave about castor oil is because it has the ability to restore and strengthen the hair strands.  Preventing hair breakage and strengthening hair strands is also an important factor in growing your hair.  If your hair is constantly breaking off, you will never see or get the growth you desire.  The hair will be breaking off faster than it is actually growing back, creating the illusion that it is not growing at all.  You can use jamaican black castor oil on the full length of your hair to strength the strands.  Be careful that you don’t use too much because the oil is very thick and will weigh your hair down.

Moisturizes The Hair

Jamaican black castor oil moisturizes the hair like no other.  It is packed with omega 6, 9 fatty acids and vitamin e.  Castor oil is a natural humectant.  Humectants lock moisture in the hair and in turn gives your hair a shiny, fuller look.  Also, another benefit that you will get from keeping your hair moisturized is that it won’t break off as often.  Hence the amount of growth you’ll receive when this oil is added to your hair care routine.

Thickens The Hair

So many naturals have reported over the years, that with consistent use jamaican black castor oil has thickened their hair.  Which I can also vouch for this to be true, because my hair has thickened tremendously overtime.  When the oil is applied directly to the scalp it can soak into the follicles allowing the new growth to grow in thicker.  You will also notice that your hair will become less see through, thin and flank.

Combats An Itchy Scalp

Itchy scalp becomes an issue when your scalp is dry and contains no moisture.  Jamaican black castor oil has a high content of vitamin e, which really helps to keep the scalp moisturized and combat itching.  It will also help to heal irritated skin that may have been damaged from constantly scratching.  At the same time dandruff will be eliminated.

It's Anti-Inflammatory

If you have been trying to grow your hair but are having a hard time, it may be that your scalp is inflamed.  An inflamed scalp can be caused by several things such as excessive scratching, bacteria or fungus.  As a result, the scalp and hair follicles become damaged and it results in hair thinning and loss.  Because jamaican black castor oil rids the scalp of toxins, unwanted disease, is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, it is perfect as an anti-inflammatory treatment.  When applied to the scalp the oil will repair and heal so that the hair can begin to grow to its full potential.  Hair will not grow out of a scalp that is inflamed.
