What is Castor Oil?
Castor Oil is an oldie but goodie! This vegetable oil is produced from seeds of the Castor plant, whose origin traces allll the way back to Egypt.
It’s fitting for this oil to come from royalty, given the richness of its nutrients. Full of Vitamin E, Omega-6 fatty acids, and protein, castor oil helps fulfills all of your curl goals!
Castor Oil Benefits for Curly Hair
- Strengthens your strands by giving them nourishment, essential for preventing dry hair and breakage
- Helps to remedy your curls from dandruff with its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties
- Acts a natural moisturizer to your scalp (a healthy scalp will lead to healthy growth!)
- Enlightens dull curls by adding incredible shine
If you noticed your curls have been feeling a little weak in the knees, Castor Oil is the perfect solution to give them the gains (and growth!) that they need.
How to Use Castor Oil on Curly Hair
Castor Oil is popularly used in its pure oil form, particularly for scalp massages. It can also be infused into hair products, which is exactly what we did!

Within this line, Organic Castor Oil helps to strengthen your curls throughout your entire Wash Day!
