Default Castor Oil

How are you guys? Summer going well?

I'm new here so pardon me if you've seen a thread like this before (if you have, do direct me towards it~)

So I am on the search for castor oil. I've heard it does wonders on edges and nape hairs. Any of you guys use castor oil? If so, what brand do you use and where did you buy it from? I'm looking for it and cannot find it. Help this 4a/4b girl out?

I've been using castor oil for years. I use Home Health brand from Vitamin Shoppe. You don't necessarily need to buy jamaican black castor oil or Haitian castor oil IMO. The one I've used is the laxative kind and it keeps my hair moisturized (as a part of my LOC routine) and my hair is super thick.

Thanks I've been wondering if it was okay to purchase the laxative kind of castor oil. I don't have much to spend on products so I can't afford buying the JBCO ^^"

I have used both regular and jbco. For sealing my hair they are the same but for regrowth i think jb is better. I just started back to using it because it can be pricey but Sallys is selling it now. Jamaican mango lime brand. You can get regular or dif versions with lavender or rosemary. Im not big on the smell of rosemary oil but I got that one and added other eo's to it.

Thanks! I should do more research in the two..Now I wonder if the medicinal castor oil has less growth aide than the JBCO...

I use the home health brand of castor oil and I actually prefer it over jamaican black castor oil. It just makes my hair feel and look better I mix it with extra virgin coconut oil to use as a sealer.
