I haven't been using this oil for long, but I am an instant devotee! About me: African American & Native American; natural, kinky curly hair; acne prone, dry skin; 28 years old.

I tried this oil before, when I first stopped straightening my hair. I hadn't quite gotten acquainted to the needs of my hair at the time, and tried slathering it on with nothing else. That was a massive fail - it was too thick - no comb was getting through that!

Fast forward two years, as I began the oil cleansing method (OCM) with good results, trying only coconut oil. During this time, I started to read how people love castor oil the most for the OCM, so I gave it a try again. This time as suggested by others, I mixed it 50/50 with a lighter oil to make it spreadable - extra virgin olive oil. The results were MAGICAL.

My face instantly fell in love - removing all dirt, grime, make-up, dry skin, and leaving my face supple and delicious, and karate chopping the few acne spots I had. That lead me to trying it on my body as a moisturizer. OMG - DELICIOUS SKIN! Mind you, I have terribly flaky, dry legs. BE GONE, said the castor oil!

Then I tried it on my kinky, curly hair - BUTTER! It made my hair softer than it has ever been in my entire life. My hair was in a good state already, but there was some minor breakage every time I detangled or manipulated my hair. Not any more!

The best part about this - there is NO GREASINESS. I mean NONE! No more stains on the clothes, no more greasy head rests in the car... I am in awe! BUY IT!

For years I had heard people talk about the benefits of castor oil but I was very content using my coconut oil. However, when my edges started thinning, I decided to try castor oil. I applied it to my edges almost every night before tying my hair up for the night and a month later it is thicker and longer. Be warned that this oil is thick and sticky (but I don't mind since it does the job).

I am guilty for having being quite cruel to my once healthy, thick and long manageable hair. Permanent straightening, then curling, then colouring, then blow drying and of course hair iron.

None of these anymore.

FOR SCALP & HAIR - Anyways, I recently started researching for recipe's for homemade hair masks to heal, lengthen and strengthen my hair. Majority of the recipe's had Castor oil in it and also as a kid my mother would apply castor oil to my eyebrows, to help thicken them. That got me to think and also to invest in this product along with NOW Sweet Almond oil. Just 2 weeks of using this product I felt my hair strands more thicker and noticeably less brittle. I apply a mixture of (NOW castor oil, NOW Almond Oil and Parachute Coconut Oil) twice a week and keep it overnight. I make the homemade mask with (Avocado, Eggs, Banana, Raw honey, NOW castor oil, NOW Almond Oil and Olive oil) every weekend and leave it on for 2 hours and shampoo and condition normal with COLD preferably or luke warm water. Hot water will cook the egg in your hair and I'd much prefer having scrambled eggs in my tummy than on my hair...lol! After every wash I re-apply (a drop of each-Castor, almond, coconut) just to my roots and ends when my hair is very wet, they work great as a leave-in conditioner and my hair doesn't feel greasy after they air dry. Instead they are nice bouncy and shiny

Its been a month since I have started the above routine and I am so glad to have found these 2 products that I am hooked for good. I prefer to mix castor oil with Almond because its consistency is quite thick and Almond helps to smooth the application as well as moisturize, whereas castor gets the circulation going.

This thing change my life. My skin is back after 8 years. Yes 8 years i have have pass with pimples on my face. I started having pimple when i turned 18, now i am 26. The beautiful time of my life is gone. I went to lots of different Dermatology, nothing works, all they do is pill my skin and make more ugly. Had so much hard time going to work, going out with husband because he so good looking. Anyway, firsti heard about this from Facebook, then i do research, read lots about it, everywhere i see it's good for skin and hair. So i believe on it. From one article i find 70% sunflower oil + 30% castor oil mix and slowly massage on your entire face for at least 15 minute, than take a face towel wet it in runny hot water, then squeeze out all water, immediately put it on your face let it cool down then then gentle wipe face in a circular motion, do this wiping for at least 7 time. Then your done. Enjoy your beautiful face. It took me only 2 month to get clear face. I bought it on September and my face got clear in beginning of December. I dont use any thing else. I have oily skin, my oil is under control too. I still use it 2, 3 time a week to keep my face clean and healthy.
Hope this is helpful to someone who is having hard time with their face. Take care.
