Castor Oil for Natural Hair
Native to Africa, castor oil is derived from the castor bean and is traditionally used in hair care to hydrate, protect, boost growth and soften dry, coarse hair. It has been used for centuries as a hair and scalp treatment. Rich in ricinoleic fatty acid and glycerides, castor oil is unique in its ability to act as both an emollient and humectant, drawing moisture to the hair and locking it in. Castor oil is readily absorbed into the skin and scalp and is prized for its ability to boost growth and thicken hair. The density and richness of Castor oil makes it uniquely suited to effectively moisturize dry hair, combat breakage by increasing the pliability of coarse hair and add shine and sheen to dull hair. We are so impressed by the ability of castor oil to transform dull, dry, damaged hair into healthy, radiant and hydrated hair that we use copious amounts of it in the products in this collection.

The color of our Amla & Olive Heavy Cream may vary from batch to batch from white, yellow or tan due to the color variations inherent in natural oils and botanicals. Expect slight variations in texture between batches as this is a natural product. This product is a stiff cream, however, if stored above room temperature or in a very warm environment for an extended period of time, the consistency may thin and become fluid. The stiff consistency is best maintained when stored in a cool environment or in a refrigerator.
