Jamaican Black Castor Oil originally comes from the castor bean of West Africa. Pure Jamaican black castor oil is rich in phytochemicals and fatty acids, making the oil useful in various skin and hair treatments. This type of castor oil is promoted as a way to increase hair thickness - a natural alternative to medications like Minoxidil that aid with regrowth - but it also offers other benefits not only for the hair but also for the skin. For example, the oil is also known for cleansing the skin and is considered a helpful remedy against acne. The presence of ricinoleic acid in Jamaican black castor oil gives it antifungal properties, making the oil an effective treatment against bacteria, fungi, and inflammation that result from such ailments as athlete's foot and eczema. Aside from that, this black castor oil also offers moisturizing benefits to soften the hard skin on the feet and hands. Users who know how to maximize the use of Jamaican black castor oil benefit by having fuller, thicker hair and clearer, softer skin. For optimal results, it's best to use raw or organic pure Jamaican black castor oil, because this original remedy is a natural serum that has not been diluted by additives.
When used regularly, black castor oil will show its many benefits, whether the goal is to strengthen the hair, increase the thickness of the hair, or decrease breakage. It increases hair growth, hair regrowth, and thickness, and provides nutrients to the hair follicles. Its conditioning qualities also make detangling the hair much easier, and the oil even boosts blood flow to the scalp. Adding oil to the hair is beneficial because it encourages the hairs natural oils to develop and nourish the hair. To apply castor oil to the hair, follow these steps:
Start with a clean scalp. Apply the black castor oil by massaging it into the scalp using the fingertips or an applicator. Be sure to apply the oil to the scalp rather than just to the tips of the hair so that it can help nourish the hair follicles. Leave the castor oil on the scalp overnight for maximum absorption. There is no need to worry about pillow stains, because the oil, especially the JBCO brand, allows the scalp to absorb the oil easily.
Users must do the above steps on a daily basis in order to see differences in the hair. Additionally, once a week, have a hot oil treatment using the black castor oil. To do this home treatment, apply generous amounts of black castor oil and gently but firmly massage it into the scalp.
Remove makeup from the face. Castor oil, as well as other facial oils, cannot be absorbed into the skin unless makeup and other barriers are removed. To cleanse the face, clean it with a gentle soap and gently pat dry.
Dip a clean cotton swab or a mascara wand into the Jamaican black castor oil bottle, such as the Sunny Isle brand. Dab off excess oil and brush the swab or wand evenly across each eyebrow. Leave the oil on the eyebrows overnight and wash it off in the morning.
Apply the oil on the eyelashes in the same manner as applying mascara. The castor oil should absorb easily, so there is no need to pat your face dry. Leave the oil on the eyelashes overnight and wash it off in the morning.
Wet hair before applying Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Water on the hair helps dilute the castor oil and spread it easily. Applying oil to wet hair allows it to attach to the natural oils that develop on the hair strands, which in turn helps the oil absorb into the skin.
Use less Jamaican Black Castor Oil than you think you need -- except in hot oil treatment.
The scalp easily absorbs small amounts of castor oil; too much only forms a thick layer, causing distribution problems. Think about applying oil to the skin: too much will cause the skin to be greasy, not well nourished.
Buy Jamaican Black Castor Oil with other infusions, or mix it with other oils for a different effect.
Choose companion essential oils to add to your black castor oil. Ylang-ylang infusion helps reduce sebum secretion to boost hair growth, whereas Tea Tree Oil has antifungal properties that help fight dandruff. Choose a scent you like with treatment qualities you are looking for. Mix black castor oil with other oils like olive oil, almond oil, or shea butter to have an enhanced moisturizing effect.

The oil is effective in acne treatment; also softens the hard skin of the feet and hands.
The table above is a quick reference guide on the various uses for Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Users can recycle the excess oil after a hot oil treatment by using it to moisturize the hard skin of the feet.
Many acne treatments dry out zits, which can result in drying out the skin. This seems like a good treatment -- but when the skin is dried out, the body creates more sebum, or oil. This ends up creating more acne. Jamaican Black Castor Oil is an effective acne treatment because it stops the skin from creating excess sebum, and, in turn, calms the face while keeping it nourished. To apply Jamaican Black Castor Oil as an acne treatment, it is important to first steam the face, which opens the pores on the skin and cleans them of impurities. Then, the castor oil can be applied. For best results, follow these steps:
Bring water in a large pot to a rapid boil, then remove it from the stove and place it on a stable countertop. Cover the pot temporarily to prevent dust and dirt contamination.
To prepare for a facial steam, wash the face with a gentle soap and water. Next, take the lid off the pot and put a towel over the back of the head, with the towel also enclosing the pot. This allows the steam wafting from the water to reach the face efficiently, opening up the pores of the skin. With open pores, the Jamaican black castor oil easily penetrates the skin.
After the steam, dry the face by gently rubbing off moisture with a washcloth. On the same washcloth, apply a small amount of a basic Jamaican black castor oil such as the Tropical Isle brand, or one with ylang-ylang oil infusion, which helps in reducing sebum secretion in the face. Another option is tea tree oil or lavender oil, both of which have antimicrobial properties that help fight acne.
Rub the castor oil all over the face in circular motions, especially in the problem areas. Leave the oil for a few minutes for the skin to absorb.
Then, wash the face with warm water to remove the castor oil, following up by splashing the face with cold water to close up the pores and avoid clogging up. This cold water acts as a toner and lets your face know that the cleansing process is over. Once you have splashed your face with cool water, gently dry it with a washcloth or towel.
Apply more Jamaican black castor oil on the face, putting more on the problem areas. Leave it overnight.
In the morning, wash the face with a moisturizing soap to prevent drying of skin. Jamaican black castor oil moisturizing soaps are preferable when having an anti-acne treatment with Jamaican black castor oil.
