AfroDeity Castor Oil Challenge 2013: Take 2

UK based AfroDeity is starting their second Castor Oil Challenge on November 1, 2013 and it will end on January 31st 2014. I never quite manage to keep up with challenges, but  for the short time I followed this one before I did find a difference in my hair.


What is a Castor Oil Challenge?

The aim of the challenge is to see if castor oil, and in particular Jamaican Black Castor Oil, aids in hair growth when using it at least three times a week in various ways.  Here are some ways you can use castor oil on your hair:

*Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil as a pre shampoo treatment.

*Daily Maintenance: Apply small amounts of Jamaican Black Castor Oil daily to your hair roots and scalp. Then massage the oil into your scalp using your finger tips. You can leave the oil on your scalp overnight. Shampoo out in the morning.

*Once per week use Jamaican Black Castor Oil as a Hot Oil Treatment.

*Add it to your deep conditioner as a moisturising agent.

*Seal moisture on the ends, prevents the moisture leaving the hair easily after it has been applied.


What’s the big deal about Castor Oil?

Castor Oil and in particularly Jamaican Black Castor Oil is renowned as hair growth aid, thickening and moisturising agent and conditioner. Castor Oil is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and is a source of rinoleic acid and many essential fatty acids. It can be used to combat hair loss, treat scalp infection, helps treat split ends, conditions, moisturises, encourages hair growth and give the appearance of thicker hair.
