Related post: Hairlista Castor Oil Challenge Check In #1
I decided to incorporate Jamaican black castor oil into my regimen after reading about the potential benefits. JBCO is said to help with moisturizing, strengthening and thickening new hair growth. It's also said to help with scalp issues such as is itchiness and dandruff which are the main reasons I decided to start using it.
Over the past eight weeks of the challenge I have noticed a lot of great improvements in my hair.
- Before I got my last relaxer touch up I noticed that my new growth was thick, moisturized and didn't tangle as much as it has in the past
- My scalp hasn't been so itchy and the flaking has pretty much gone away
The one negative thing I've noticed is I'm shedding more. It's not a whole lot, but it's more than I had been. I'm not 100% sure this is connected to the castor oil, but it's a symptom that I've seen some of the other challenge participants talk about.
Here are some before and after pictures
