How to use Jamaican Black Castor Oil?
AS A HAIRDRESSER:
The thick consistency helps to retain moisture in your hair. However, the oil can feel heavy in your hair, so you can mix it with other oils or hair products for better application of the oil in your hair. I apply JBCO twice a week in my hair. I massage the oil into my roots and scalp, edges and ends for great shine and styling your hair. Over time, I noticed less breakage, my hair is stronger and more manageable.
AS A HOT OIL TREATMENT:
This is one of the most popular uses for JBCO women use in their hair care routines. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will try sometime soon. Heat up the oil and massage it into your hair and let it set for ten to thirty minutes , and then rinse it out, and continue with your regular routine. This is a great alternative to deep conditioning, especially if you don’t have the time to sit under a dryer or don’t want to apply heat to your hair.
AS A PRE-POO:
I mix this oil with coconut oil in my hair and let it set in my hair anytime from 10 minutes to an hour before washing my hair. I feel this method helps to make my hair more manageable and less tangled up when I’m washing and deep conditioning my hair. After that, my hair feels softer and moisturized.
JBCO has natural properties that can help relieve aches and pain on your body. Simply apply a small amount of JBCO (either alone or mixed with other oils or something else) on your the affected area and gently massage it onto the area. JBCO also have calming properties to help you become more relaxed and calm. Massage the oil onto your pressure points before going to bed to help you go to sleep faster and get a better night’s sleep.
Oil cleansing is a increasingly popular way to cleanse the face instead of using harsh soaps and ingredients hat strip away the natural oils in your face. Oil cleansing is done so that the oil will melt with the sebum to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities. JBCO can be used to detoxify pores. There are several ways to oil cleanse: The first way is using JBCO on its own or you can mix it with other oils, apply a generous amount of the oil on your face, massage it on your face in circular motions, apply a hot wash cloth over your face and let it set for 2-3 minutes and remove the oil with the washcloth, and repeat one or twice The second way is the use a quarter-size amount of oil and massage it onto your face in circular motion, rinse it off with warm water, followed by a splash of cold water to close pores, and pat face dry.Oil cleansing can be done every day or several times a week depending on what ever works best for you.
