    I'm still using Castor Oil (straight) almost everyday. I love this stuff! My daughter's hair loves it too. I normally use Castor oil from oilsbynature but I only have a few ounces left since my "accident". So I recently bought some Jamaican Black Castor Oil in the brown bottle. I hope it works just the same.

    I have been oiling my scalp 2-3 times a week and I can definitely tell the difference in my hair. My NG is loving it!! Just wanted to give you ladies an update!

    I washed my hair last night so I will be applying my JBCO to my NG when I get home from work this evening. The JBCO definitely keeps my NG under control!!

    I am slightly allergic so I tried to get it as close to the scalp without putting it directly on my scalp. Sometimes it may itch where I scratch my scalp until it is sore......do you get the itchies?

    I'm relaxed, I apply it as if I'm greasing my scalp. I use a little bit, but I wear textured styles most of the time so my hair being weighed down a little bit doesn't matter. Now if I was wearing my hair flat ironed, pin str8 I wouldn't use the Castor Oil it would weigh it down too much.

    Finally took my braids out Saturday and twisted it today. Castor oil is great for twisting too.
    Today I put a little on my scalp and twisted my hair with a mini-dot of it with the shea butter and jojoba oil.....

    PROGRESS UPDATE (Pics coming soon): My edges are filling in!:spinning: The right side more than the left however:wallbash:...I started the challege with braids so I was putting the Castor Oil with the Herbal Temple Balm on my thinning edges....Today I was able to catch the hair in those areas for twisting! I am so excited...This stuff is the bomb:grin:......BTW...I use the Clear Castor oil you buy from the Health Food Store....I caught it on sale for like 4.59 or 3.59.....What a steal!:yep:

    That reminds me...When my hair was in braids...of course you can see the new growth better, so i was putting it on the NG. When I took my braids out and shampooed Saturday, I noticed the NG was softer. When I co-washed last night...it was very obvious the castor oil softened it up! My twists look 1000X better than ever!

    Still going strong with my jbco. My edges are also filling in. Due to my use, I have also increased the frequency of my washes. I think this combo will make a big difference.

    I see everyone is making progress. Keep up the great work ladies! HHG!
