Jamaican Black Castor Oil is less processed than regular castor oil and contains a higher percentage of beneficial nutrients, such as omega fatty acids. For hair regrowth, the oil is applied daily to the scalp and roots of the hair. It should be massaged into the scalp to promote circulation and may be left on overnight, as it is easily absorbed into the scalp and hair and does not stain pillows or bedding.

A weekly hot oil treatment is recommended for those suffering from dry, fizzy and brittle hair. It helps to strengthen and smooth hair. This process involves warming the oil for a few seconds in a microwave or submerging the bottle in hot water for a few minutes. It can then be applied generously to the whole head of hair. Once the hair is fully saturated, a wrap should be applied to keep as much heat as possible locked in. For maximum benefit, the treatment is to be left in the hair for at least 30 minutes.
