Great staple. I love mixing this with other oils and conditioners for added moisture because on its own it is a little heavy for me.
I like this product, it leaves my hair soft, I've been using this since my transition to natural to fully natural, great!
A very nice moisturizing oil that I like to mix with another oil. It absorbs well into my hair. It smells nice- like roasted sesame seeds. I would definitely repurchase.
If you can ignore the smell, Jbco is just Bomb. Besides the noticeable hair growth onmy hairline within less than 3 weeks of usage, it's made my hair SOOOO Much softer, and my hair is about as kinky as it gets. I approve.
I think this product has my first 5 star rating. This may be the only product so far which I will deign to call an HG Product for me. How I use it: as a pre-poo mixed with a conditioner that is not too expensive (Usually cantu butter). As a mayo mixed with a leave in conditioner that I can apply to my new growth and hair about 3X per week. As a scalp massage oil mixed 2 parts JBCO with grape seed oil or almond oil (the oil is too heavy to use alone) as a sealer (alone) to seal in moisture or product after I twist my hair. the oil softens hair and can settle the the cuticle nerves of even the most upset or hardened hair (due to protein or other chemical treatments. I am always guaranteed soft hair and silkiness after a few applications. I also can say that this oil )or other brands like Tropic Isle) are also responsible for the regrowth of my edges which were decimated by braiding. so I am a true believer in JBCO. I find this brand thicker and more redolent of the cooked beans than other brands--to soften the smell, try mixing a few drops of peppermint oil into your bottle. As for the Ylang Ylang--stinkiest stuff I ever tried. I am going back to the plain bottle once my ylang ylang mixture is done.
This is the best oil ever! I decided to stop using KCCC, because it dried out my hear and left me with fairy knots and split ends. I use the castor oil as a sealer after adding Shea Moisture Curl Enhansing Smoothie (SMCES) and Giovanni 50/50 as a leave-in. I love that it is fragance-free, because it neutralizes SMCES smell. A little goes a long way and be sure to use a moisturizing leave-in before the oil! My hair dries fast (a couple of hours) and is soo soft, with just the right amount of definition - no ramon noodles here! I have second day hair again, which I was only able to achieve with KCCC. After day three though, my hair is ready for a good cleansing with either Jessicurl Cleansing Cream or DevaCurl Noo-Poo Cleanser. This method has eliminated my fairy knots and made my 3b-3c curls happy and healthy. Plus I have half the shedding that I had before! I also use it for my facial cleanser too, using the OCM (oil cleasing method).
I am enjoying the product so far. It is a thick, heavy oil, so once I master the appropriate amount of product, I will be good to go. I can't wait to get some serious growth with this oil.
Definitely one of my staple products, it's so versatile. I use it for my face, eyebrows, skin and hair.
i don't have anything bad to say about this product because i have only used it 3x so far. i am using it for hair growth and thickness. i will have to do an updated review after 30 days of use. so far, it put it on my scalp daily, as the website says, and i have done one hot oil treatment (JBCO + wheat germ oil).
Feels good when you put on, but don't use too much. I only gave it 3 stars because the top broke as soon as I tried to open it. Now I have to find another bottle to put it in. Good moisture!
I love this stuff because it is super moisturizing. It is very thick and sticky so you have to be careful with your application process. I find that it makes a great sealer because it works well with Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Tigi Curls Rock Curl Amplifier. At the end of the day I am very satisfied with the results because it gave me great second day hair without reapplying. Just spritz some water in your hair to reactivate, air dry and you are good to go.
The fact that it is dense and rich and thick is kind of a double edged sword. While it is deeply moisturizing, application can be tricky and if you don't use just the right amount, it can leave your hair feeling heavy and sticky. I like it best as pre shampoo scalp treatment and for my ends. I also put a little bit on my eyebrows to try and encourage them to grow in thicker.
Great product! Its very moisturizing and good for sealing after using a water based moisturizer. A little goes a long way and if too much is used it can weigh your hair down. But overall I love it! Also good to use mixed in with your deep conditioner :-)
I like it! Of course using and oil is a must in my hair care regimen anyway... using this thick castor oil on my wet hair was great. I felt like I was really putting something good in my hair and it never felt like too much. That's a good thing! My hair felt conditioned and moisturized... Good stuff!
