Why I Changed My
Jamaican Black Castor Oil Regimen (VIDEO)

One of the things I have learned about life in general and my hair specifically is that you have to switch it up!When I first went natural, more than 6 years ago, I was using Jamaican Black Castor Oil (aka JBCO) as a moisturizer. I got away from that a bit and then saw a woman on Instagram with beautiful hair and thought, I need to get back to that.So I did go back to using it the way I was when I first cut my hair..

Guess what?

Well.. just watch…



After that experience I decided to change it up. This time I applied the JBCO to my scalp the night before and then wrapped it up in a plastic bag covered with a satin cap. The next morning, I co-washed and styled. It came out GREAT! Not too greasy but very moisturized.

And while I’m here talking about styling.. follow the pictures for step-by-step instructions on how I get my curls just right!


2. The Drying Process

Because my hair is getting long, the bottom never gets dry under the hair dryer. So I attach the diffuser to my blow dryer, hitting the wet parts. I also push the hair up to add volume. Be careful not to disturb the curl while it is setting or it will get frizzy.
