Improves Hair Strength
Some anecdotal research suggests that Jamaican black castor oil improves blood circulation to the scalp, thereby encouraging hair growth. The oil also nourishes the scalp and strengthens the hair roots, thereby treating thinning hair. It makes your hair thicker, fuller, and shinier.
You need 3 tablespoons of the castor oil, 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil, and a dark-colored dropper bottle.
How To Use
- Add the two oils to the dropper bottle and shake well.
- Using the dropper, apply the oil to your scalp. Part your hair right above the ear on one side, and apply the mixture to the visible crease of the scalp. Keep making partitions and applying the oil mixture as you move from one end of your head to the other.
- After the oil is spread across the scalp, massage using circular motions. This helps boost circulation in the scalp.
- You can place a shower cap over your head and leave the mixture on overnight.
- In the morning, rinse your hair properly and wash it as you normally do.
Prevents Hair Breakage
Though research is limited, testimonials of individuals swearing by Jamaican black castor oil (and, in general, even castor oil) and its benefits for hair are many. Regular use of the oil has been purported to prevent hair breakage.
How To Use
- First, try to wear old clothes as the oil can stain your clothes.
- Take a small amount of the oil in your hands and gently massage into the scalp and the hair roots.
- Ensure the oil is properly distributed across the scalp, and the scalp only. And don’t use too much of the oil since castor oil usually has a thick consistency, and you might have trouble washing it off later.
- Cover your hair with a plastic wrap.
- Leave it on for about two hours and wash off as usual. For deep conditioning, you can keep it on overnight and rinse in the morning.
You can also thin the oil by using grape seed or jojoba oil. Combining Jamaican black castor oil with coconut, almond, olive, or tea tree oils also helps prevent hair breakage. This makes for a Jamaican black castor oil shampoo that enhances hair health.
Treats Split Ends
Split ends can get nasty, and at times, your confidence can take a beating. But you don’t have to have that problem with the Jamaican black castor oil by your side.
How To Use
- Take equal amounts of the castor oil and mustard oil.
- Mix both the oils and massage into your scalp, especially rubbing over the split ends.
- Cover your hair with a shower cap and leave it on for about 30 minutes.
- Rinse with a mild shampoo.
Doing this twice a week gives you frizz-free hair and treats split ends. This remedy can also detangle your hair.

How To Use

- Blend the avocado in a food processor.
- Add the castor oil and honey to the avocado and mix until they are well blended.

- Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse.
You can also add some amount of Shea butter for added moisturization.
