Peppermint oil is a derivative of the peppermint plant - a cross between water mint and spearmint. The peppermint plant is most often used to flavor foods or as a scent for body products. Peppermint oil is also used to cure numerous illnesses. Another popular use for peppermint oil is for the hair. Peppermint oil has been used across the world for many years as a hair treatment. When peppermint oil is used properly, it can help address common hair concerns such as dry scalp, hair loss, hair growth, and more. Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) has crossed over into other ethnic groups, and is now being used widely for some of the same purposes, as well as new found uses including eyelash and eyebrow hair growth and as massage oil. This versatile oil carries many varied uses. Jamaican Black Castor Oil works for all hair types and textures. A healthy scalp means healthy hair. It works for all hair types because the oil works on the hair roots/follicles and not the hair itself. Over the last ten years, it is an established precedent that Jamaican Black Castor oil is more effective than the clear pharmacy castor oil because of the ash content due to roasting of the beans. Therefore, it stands to reason that the more ash content, the more effective the oil. This is not a myth, it is evidence based on scientific facts. JBCO will solve the following: Dry brittle hair, hair breakages, dandruff, dry itchy scalp, eczema, thinning hair, alopecia, bald spots, and will rapidly increase hair growth including eyebrows and eyelashes. The scientific name for the castor bean is Ricinus Communis. It is organic and sulfate-free. There is nothing in it that will harm your hair.
