I have a hair lotion with castor oil as a top ingredient - it's Bronner Brothers or something. I do scalp massages with it about every night but I couldn't imagine using castor oil alone on your hair unless it's used very sparingly. I don't think it's helped my hair growth or condition much (I also apply it to my hair ends sometimes.) but I'm not using straight castor oil.
It's thick but can thin out with an lighter oil
How Iam using it so far a 2 tbsp leave in 2tbsp aloe Vera juice 2teasp castor oil 2 teasp almond oil

Thinking bout doing scalp massage with it before I co wash idk yet Iam trying to go with the flo
I really want to join this challenge but I am kind of nervous about online shopping (no nearby reasonably priced health food stores)

And sometimes the health food stores have crappy stuff that smells old/rancid because people barely buy it so its not regularly restocked.Well that's what happened to me with coconut oil.

Do you have a liquor store near by that sells food,magazines,ect because there's one near me that sells all types of oils but its suppose to be for cooking?
I just took a leap of faith and purchased some Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Sweet Almond Oil last night on amazon. It should get here around wednesday so we will see. I have never looked for oils in the liqour store but I will be sure to check it out thanks.
Ooh. Same here, I just realized liquor store sells oils too, but I haven't looked at all of them yet.
my oil just arrived so I guess I will start the challenge on friday
so hows everyone challenge going ??

I've been using castor oil for a few months now. I reallly love it. It helps lock in moisture in my hair.

Surprisingly, I was skeptical about it at first because of how thick it is, but my hair controls the decisions here obviously lol

I went CG two weeks ago, and just read that castor oil can't be washed out without sulfates
Any of you having trouble by trying to no poo/co wash it out?
