I haven't used castor oil since sometime in '08. It was the CV soap bar and a sample of something someone sent me, so I don't remember which one. I mostly buy products from the online, boutique type companies. Am careful about reading ingredients and don't buy anything with castor oil. My hair reacts the same way to mineral oil.
Just read before you use anything.
