What’s really good? It’s your boy, Cedlocks coming at you again with another dreadlock vlog. This week we will be continuing on our series that we started a few weeks ago dubbed “Which Oil Is Best For My Dreadlocks”. The purpose of the series is to equip you with the knowledge one would need when trying to find natural remedies to your dreadlock problems.
So today we’ll be continuing in our Which Oil Is Best For My Dreadlock series. And I got a request of Castor Oil. It’s perfect because it’s really an oil that’s receiving lost of praise and rave right now. So what’s the deal with castor oil.
Castor oil is a natural product released from the seeds of beans of the castor oil plant. A plant that is indigenous to Eastern Africa, India & other tropical islands.
Be it possible, you’ll want to buy the castor oil that is cold pressed, meaning there’s no heat involved with the extraction process. This ensure minimal degradation of the DNA of the oil.
You’ll notice probably two or more versions of castor oil on the market. In general you’ll see regular castor oil which is slightly yellow and Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
Clear castor oil is pressed from fresh seeds or beans while JBCO is made first by roasting the seeds and then pressing. The roasting produces an ash which gives it it’s darker hue. The JBCO method slightly increases the pH which helps clean the scalp and clogged pores. The increased alkaline level also opens cuticles allowing the oils to better hydrate the scalp. So this why most often, Jamaican Black Castor Oil is preferred especially for our hair, but the clear castor oil works too as long as it’s cold pressed or virgin.
So there’s tons of benefits to using Jamaican Black Castor Oil, but I’ll speak about the ones pertaining to hair.
1. Fights Scalp Infections
Like tea tree oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil is an anti-fungal, anti bacterial and antiviral oil. This is great because dreadlocks have so much potential for fungus if not properly maintained.
2. Promotes and Increases Hair Growth
Jamaican Black Castor Oil is not a magic solution to hair growth that’ll yield inches of growth overnight. What Castor Oil does is increase or accelerate blood circulation to the scalp. Which in turn provides your hair with the necessary nutrients needed to grow.
3. Sealing Moisture
Apply Jamaican Black Castor Oil after using a water-based product to create a seal that’ll retain the moisture longer.
4. Moisturizing and thickening
This is the overall outcome of using Jamaican Black Castor Oil for hair. Your dreadlocks or natural hair will be moisturized and as a result, you should have a thicker set of hair.
I hope this video was very informative. Please let me know if it helped and make a request if you have an oil that you’d like me to review.
Take care and be blessed!
