OverUse Jamaican Black Castor Oil - Part 2

Hi There,

My first post on this generated quite a few questions about how much people were using their JBCO. If you are using this, please do not be alarmed. My first post was really just alerting you to the problem of putting copious amounts of any oil liberally on your scalp and not maintaining and washing your hair frequently enough.

Case in point, I bumped into an old acquaintance who had been using JBCO on her scalp for some time now and seeing very little results, I was quite surprised by this as the damage to her scalp wasn't that severe. Some hairs had sprouted but the progress I had expected to see was very little for the amount of time she had been using the product. So I asked her, how she was using it. It turns out she was applying this to her scalp daily while wearing a weave for over 2 months. No washing whatsoever in between.

Now, it doesn't matter what products you use unless you use them correctly and treat your scalp with some kindness, Our scalps need to be kept clean, Usually you would get dirt and build up anyway, but by putting JBCO directly onto the scalp and not washing, bacteria was just languishing there ( this would probably apply to any oil or grease).

My advice, is that if you are putting this on your scalp, please make sure you adopt a good wash regime.
Make sure you adopt a regime of some sort full stop. There is no point buying all these products and then continuing on the course you had been all along. If you really want to treat your hair properly, you need to change those old hair habits and start fresh with new ones. This applies whether you are relaxed, natural, wearing braids or weave.

I hope this helps a bit, but if you want more info or if this post makes no sense, email me

    I was using jamaican black ctasor oil for 3 years, and my locks grew tremedously. The one thing I didn’t like was the heaviness of the oil, and I was washing my hair every week because it was like dirt and odors was just sticking to my locks. I found the fountain liquid hair food in New York in the Summer, and now you couldn’t pay me to use the other one. It is way lighter, smells good my hair smells like toothpaste all the time, and I love the tingling, fresh sensation it gives, just like mouthwash. The Fountain black ctasor oil is not greasy at all, and my scalp stays cleaner longer. I go to my loctician every month now to retwist my regrowth which seems to have doubled. I introduced her to it, and she uses it on her customers as a hot oil treatment. I lotion with it too, especially my feet and it has helped the tough skin on my heels, I love this oil!
