1. As a sealant
If you suffer from dry, brittle hair, using Haitian Black Castor Oil as a moisture sealant may be your best solution. Because of it's texture, HBCO works well with carrier oils such as coconut, olive, or any other light oil.
To use Haitian Black Castor Oil as a sealant, you must first condition and moisturize your hair, then finish off by applying a dime-size drop of castor oil to entire shaft.
For curly and kinky hair types that struggle with retaining moisture, the L.O.C.(leave-in, oil, cream) method may not be enough- it's best to add that extra O (L.O.C.O) and seal it all in with Haitian Black Castor Oil.
2. As a conditioner
You don't know hydration until you've conditioned your hair with Haitian Black Castor Oil.
Not only will this oil leave your hair feeling soft and smooth, it will also help strengthen and thicken your strands.
To use as a conditioner, pre-poo, or masque, simply mix a teaspoon of HBCO with your favorite conditioner and a drop of coconut oil, comb through your hair and leave in for 10-15 minutes before rinsing.
3. As a hot oil treatment
Allow Haitian Black Castor Oil to deeply penetrate and nourish your scalp by doing a hot oil treatment.
Heat up your castor oil in a pot or microwave to a safe temperature and apply to freshly washed or dampened hair.
It's best to apply the oil section by section, smoothing the oil down the hair shaft from scalp to ends.
Massage the oil throughout hair and gently rub into your scalp, ensure that your entire head is saturated with the hot oil.
Cover with a shower cap and allow the treatment to do its job for at least an hour,(overnight is even better).
Once your hair strands are done marinating, rinse out the oil and continue to style as usual.
