Now, some black women may experience skin irritation, simply because either they are putting too much on their scalp or their skin just does not agree with it. So, you have to test a small portion of your scalp to really know if using regular castor oil will work for you. One of our journalist tried Kroger's brand and it worked, but after so many months she became discouraged to continue her regimen. After learning how to use it, sparingly, she began her regimen again and now her hair seems to be growing, very healthy.
When using regular castor oil as a hair growth remedy, use it sparingly and try mixing it with another oil and even a few more. You can try mixing it with olive or jojoba oil. Regular castor oil, Jamaican or any other type of oil is too thick and it will clog your pores and as you already know, if your hair can't breath, it won't grow. So, after you mix your castor oil with another one to make it lighter, just dab one drop at a time on your scalp and still, do not over do it.
How does castor oil grow hair? It stimulates hair follicles, after penetrating into your scalp.
Watch these two clips of one woman who has tried the regular clear castor oil, then the other one who has used Jamaican castor oil.
