Jamaican Black Castor Oil is a traditional natural remedy making a comeback as a deeply conditioning hair and skin treatment that promotes faster, healthier hair growth and combats dryness and dandruff. The Tropical Black Castor Oil difference is the ancient method by which it is processed, producing the most potent black variety that works even more effectively than clear castor oil. It’s rich in Vitamin E and omega fatty acids and provides natural antimicrobial protection against infection, as well as stimulating circulation to bring valuable nourishment to your hair follicles, combatting hair loss. These properties also make Tropical Black Castor Oil a fantastic treatment for skin issues such as acne, eczema and dry skin.

The Black Castor Oil Difference

Unlike clear castor oil that is the beans are roasted and boiled, resulting in a rich ash that lends a dark brown colour to the oil. The ash makes Jamaican Black Castor Oil more alkaline, which helps it penetrate your skin and work more effectively

How to use Tropical Jamaican Black Castor Oil for hair growth:

  • Massage a small amount into your scalp and hair roots each day
  • It can be left on overnight for maximum effectiveness
  • Be sure to cover your pillow to prevent oil stains if you have used a lot on your hair and scalp as a treatment
  • You can mix Tropical Black Castor Oil with a lighter oil such as olive or jojoba if you find it too viscous
  • You can also mix it with your conditioner for extra-deep conditioning, or with your hair styling products for extra shine and manageability
  • Pre-shampoo conditioner: apply a small amount of Tropical JBCO to your hair 15 minutes before shampooing. Alternatively, mix some into your conditioner and wash as normal

Hot Oil treatment

  • Use once a week as a hot oil treatment
  • Apply to your scalp and hair, cover your hair with a plastic cap and go under the Dryer for 15 to 30 minutes. You can also leave it in as an overnight treatment
  • Shampoo your hair as usual. You may find if you have very fine hair that you need to do more than one wash
  • Style as usual

Tropical Jamaican Black Castor Oil for eyebrows and eyelashes

  • Remove all traces of makeup from your eyelashes and eyebrows
  • Put a small amount of Tropical JBCO onto a mascara wand or a cotton swab, tapping off any excess oil
  • Use the wand/cotton swap to apply a light layer of oil to your eyelashes from root to tip.
  • Leave on overnight and rinse off with a mild soap in the morning before applying makeup/moisturiser


  • Wet your hair before applying, this helps the oil spread more easily
  • Less is more: Castor oil is very rich and thick, and the scalp easily absorbs oil; too much oil forms a thick layer making it difficult to spread through the hair

What a fantastic product that actually worked! Had an extremely dry and flaky scalp. Used this product for one month and no more dryness and flakes! Amazing. Also recommended it to my aunt who is using it too.
27/09/2021, By THERESA
My hair is starting to fall due to menopause and I tend to lose my edges. Massaging my scalp daily has stimulated new growth. Thick and rich oil.
04/09/2021, By Ksenia
It is always a must oil in my hair care. Don't forget to put it on your eye lashes just not too much.
14/06/2021, By kan

12/06/2021, By Buhle
I have just started using it,but I can already see some growth on my hair line...
30/05/2021, By Adelle
Have bought this product, many times. It lasts long and works like a charm. My lashes have grown long and hardly need mascara. Brows are thick and full. I use it after my hair has been dyed on my scalp to help with any irritation that might occur, hair feels soft and no itchy scalp.
19/05/2021, By Terri
Lovely product. Makes my hair feel so soft. Been using it on my eyelashes and they have grown a little longer. They starting to look a bit more fluffy.
11/05/2021, By Jamela
Thick and the oil has a dark color, unlike other brands. Haven't seen much of a difference since I got it 4 days ago.
20/04/2021, By Thato
Definitely a staple in my skin and hair care collection. I use it on my scalp and d face, it has removed pimple scars, works wonderfully. Terrible smell though you have to have a good smelling product over it.

Amazing product. Love it !

Holy grail oil
09/11/2020, By Jenny
Wow, I have used other much more expensive treatments before, great product and one does not struggle to wash your hair the next morning when left in overnight, there is no oily residue
19/10/2020, By Karen
I read about this stuff on the Goop website and wondered if it was available in SA. Lo and behold - it is.
Got an odd smell - but not off putting. And it's thick like honey.
But does it work. Actually - Yes.
I had to learn to apply it to my lashes and my eye lid near the lash line.
And NOT let it get into my eye to avoid blurry vision. I was a bit too enthusiastic.
But I can honestly say - hand on heart - there is an improvement in my brows and lashes.
15/10/2020, By Alia
I have seen a difference in the thickness of my hair. This helps nourishes my hair.
10/10/2020, By WarriorQueen
I habe been Using it to treat thining hairline. I apply it every second night. Leaves my hair feeling think and lacious.
13/09/2020, By Khutso
Verdict still pending. Quite sticky but no unpleasant smell. Using for eyebrows and lashes.
10/09/2020, By Lindokuhle
I am buying this again it works wonders for my natural hair.
11/08/2020, By Prenessa
Works well for growing my toddler's hair, making no difference to my hair as yet
06/08/2020, By Carmen
Used ABCO before. But this one is just as effective. Can see improvement in thickness and growth quite quick. Even on my eyebrows
13/07/2020, By Rehaanah
So... I have debated falling into the trap of trendy beauty products for the sake of my wallet. But I have recently come to a more sustainable, fresh, bare-there beauty/make-up routine and in order to do so I needed products that will (hopefully) enhance my natural features in order to use less make-up. So I took the bait and finally ordered castor oil for use on my lashes and eyebrows. I have been applying this every night (almost) for about 10 days now and I haven't fully dolled up for a while cause, well - lockdown. And so, yesterday I did so with very gentle barely there make-up just for fun. Let me tell you - my brows are fluffier, and getting fuller. I needed to add zero brow filling products and the soap brows technique made me look like I bought these brows straight from the cover of a magazine. And my lashes? Holy smokes. I curled them for the first time since I started using this product and they are DEFINITELY longer and fuller. One coat of mascara was all it took for me to be satisfied with the look I was trying to achieve. Now, no-one warned me that the castor oil would be thick and sometimes runny prone to staining your pillows, or that it could get in your eye and you'd be scrambling to find something to clear off the excess but if there was ever a product I would say was worth all of that for the results - it would be this. I cannot WAITTTTT to see what this achieves after a month of use. Highly recommend.
13/07/2020, By Prenessa
Mixing it with coconut oil. Working wonders on my toddler's hair. Helping the hair growth on my hair but not helping with hair fall.
21/06/2020, By Elsie
Been applying it to my brows and lashes twice a day now for about 2 weeks and my lashes are definitely growing out longer. So far so good.
16/06/2020, By Rubleen
Pretty good first time trying it
03/06/2020, By Mbabayi
The product has changed. It has become too potent for usage. The smell is unbearable. I need it so will only buy 1 versus the usual 3 bottles. I need the old stock.
23/05/2020, By Angela
As good as any other castor oil. Didn't find it that special Compared to other brands. After the hype around it

I mix the Jamaican black castor oil with coconut oil and massage on my scalp. I love how it leaves my hair feeling soft yet strong from the roots.

The nozzle makes it easy to use. Has an odd smell but it's not unpleasant. Great for my hair.
18/03/2020, By Lydia
i absolutely love how it makes my hair feel
04/03/2020, By Pele
Gentle on scalp, and nozzle makes it easy to apply to scalp. The smell is a little off-putting.
22/02/2020, By Eco
25/01/2020, By RaY
Started using on my eyebrows, haven’t seen results yet, but it’s easy to apply. Yes it’s thick but the nozzle makes it easy to apply. Use it nightly and don’t find the smell too strong
02/01/2020, By Zaheer Ismail
Well done
21/11/2019, By Thobisa
I have African Afro hair. This oil dries out my hair when used alone. So I used it in conjunction with other products
20/11/2019, By Masixole
My hair feels soft when I have applied it, unfortunately the smell is too strong for me so I am still trying to find tricks on how I can avoid its strong smell.
31/10/2019, By Thobisa
I had high hopes with product but unfortunately it dries out my natural hair. It does not nourish or moisturise my hair even though I used it with shea butter. I have 4c hair very thick natural hair. Maybe I will have to use it with anther combination of products
09/10/2019, By Ashwin
Excellent product. Helps the scalp ward off infection.
17/09/2019, By Joy
Helps keep my scalp feeling nourished and great for hair growth
09/09/2019, By Fay
It works as my scalp is less itchy and less hair falling out. No I haven't seen new hair growth.
24/08/2019, By Elizabeth
Already on my second bottle! Love this product so much
04/06/2019, By Lara
I really enjoy using this product as the nozzle makes it really easy to apply onto scalp. The oil itself is very thick and sticky, most probably wouldn't like the smell, but I don't mind it. Its very natural. I don't particularly see drastic results but my hair is soft and shiny after use.
03/06/2019, By Lesley
Hi. I have tried many black castor oil products before, Tropical is the only one that has worked for me... my hair feels thicker and after 4 weeks I noticed my hair has grown. It is a process because blowdrying and hair straightening really messed up my hair.
22/05/2019, By Pri
Great product. Makes my hair feel so soft.
20/05/2019, By shumonè
I have been using the oil for a while and I love it. My hair is nourished and glossy, even in the colder air.
04/05/2019, By Omolemo
Mixed with organic coconut oil and the two helped my hairline recover better than any other product I've ever tried.
28/04/2019, By Sindy
I have long dreadlocks that I used to tie in a ponytail most times. This caused hair loss on my hairline due to tension. I tried many products to restote my hairline but to no avail.
After I started using this JBCO I am happy to report my hairline is 98% back:)
I had to stop using the product for about a month as I couldn't keep up with the new growth which meant more frequent visits to my hairdresser. I have been spreading the word about this particular brand as it's definitely the best.

This product is the real deal. Thumbs up.
17/04/2019, By Kay
Quite thick and smell is stongish, but it definitely does a great job at strengthening and moisturizing my hair
04/03/2019, By Melissa
My hair is thicker and healthier thanks to this product.
13/02/2019, By Teeps
We've tried various castor oils and this is by far our favourite. A little goes a long way, it somehow doesn't feel as thick and greasy as other castor oils and my children love the smell which they say is like chocolate. We use it for all sorts of skin issues and the occassional hair treatment and have had no issues with any acne etc, we have only seen improvements and healing.
10/02/2019, By Margot
A little goes a long way with this product, great consistency, the smell is noot my favourite but it's not the end of the world. Gives my hair a good texture but I've only been using it for a short while, looking forward to more results!
22/01/2019, By Milicent
When the product won Best Aftercare and Treatment Range at the African Hair Awards 2018, I had to try it. Within 24 hours the itching stopped and my scalp felt nourished. After a few weeks of use I noticed my hairline began improving.
18/12/2018, By Mireille
I've been using this for a few months now .. haven't noticed any changes.. leaves my ends feeling dry.. maybe i'm missing something.
I'll finish the bottle and hope to see some improvements
10/12/2018, By Gontse
I am already seeing a great improvement in my hairline, I hope it fully restores it because this has been a great challenge for me.
27/11/2018, By Nomalanga
There’s a slow but definite improvement on my hairline. The oil is moisturizing too.
12/11/2018, By Sammy
Great for hair, but causes painful cystic acne when applied to the skin
06/11/2018, By Tshiamo
I've been using this product for over a year and it's done wonders for my hairline.
05/11/2018, By Nanda
I Like the product - but don't like the smell ( meaning it's the original Black Castor Oil). Am not happy with myself for buying 50ml though.
04/11/2018, By Gabrielle
Super thick nourishing oil, sometimes I use it for lip gloss has a very nutty smell.
02/11/2018, By Leoni
I have been using this on my split end prone hair for a while now and have noticed that I do not have to trim as often anymore. As a result I now enjoy longer hair that is not dry or dull-looking
01/11/2018, By Rene
It’s no different to ordinary castor oil. It has no ashy smell and dark colour that comes from burnt beans. This is not even potent black as they claim. It’s a rip off!
26/10/2018, By Katherine
The only product that actually softens my transitioning hair and makes it more managable. I'm addicted!
09/10/2018, By Zukiswa
My hair is manageable, looks like I don't need to relax it nomore
03/10/2018, By Samukelo
i am a guy and have used it on my bald patch saw great result in short amount of time also helps with those unattractive dark stretchmarks can confidently say try it and see what it does for you also google other uses for TJBCO you will be amazed with what it can do.
03/10/2018, By Godsfavorite
After my Chemotherapy i had patches of hair and delayed growth and i cut my hair and was bald and decided to start on the Tropical Jamaican Black Castor oil and its been a year after and my hair is grown longer, stronger, thicker and blacker not dandruff no itching. Definitely my product for life gave me the confidence i need in my life

Now I know why this product is the finalist in African Hair Awards 2018 for Best Aftercare Product. When I applied it to my scalp and hair it was like I found a different side to my crowning glory. Soft manageable hair with new hair growth in areas that I had not seen hair growth for ages. Well priced and all natural.
01/10/2018, By Tseleng
Don't know how to feel about this oil. Firstly it has a different scent from the all natural Jamaican black castor oil I had prior to buying this, its colour is also very light and I do not think its working because I have not seen anything different with my hair. With this brand my hair dries out quicker compared to the brand I had prior. Bought this one last month and so far nothing has changed with my hair except that it dries out quicker, which is bad, but will continue using it cause I spent money on it.
12/09/2018, By Tandy
The first time I used it I used it combined with my conditioner and simply rinsed afterwards, went to bed and woke up with an oily head, was quite funny, it kind of just looked like my hair did not dry. Rewashed with shampoo in the morning and it was fine - actually received compliments from random people telling me that my hair looks nice. Gave my hair a nice shine and volume too
05/09/2018, By Melissa
I really enjoy using this in my hair. It makes my hair feel a lot softer and not as brittle
15/07/2018, By Anzette
Ive bought this to be used as a scalp treatment, but the consistency is quite thick. I just mix it with a carier oil ( I used grapeseed from Soil) and it works very good.
14/06/2018, By Kara
My hair is so smooth and soft
14/05/2018, By Liora
Made my hair visibly softer from the very first application
14/03/2018, By Sindy
This is a miracle in a bottle. My ethnic dreadlocks are gorgeous and shiny thanks to this baby.
I get complemented on how healthy and shiny my dreadlocks are all the time. Extra long dreadlocks are not easy to maintain, this oil is true heaven sent.
14/02/2018, By Going Green
I've used all kinds of oil for my hair before - from amla oil to coconut oil, but nothing has ever made my hair as silky, smooth and shiny. I put it on my hair and scalp 24 hours before I wash it. It makes my hair a bit knotty/tangly, but it's so worth it! I've started using it on my eyelashes too. Hope I see long, thick lashes soon!
08/02/2018, By Raquel
I bought this oil to use on my eyelashes, but it burns my skin and gives me a rash. I would definitely not recommended it for that use, maybe it's fine for your scalp.. and the smell is awful!
28/01/2018, By Zakiyah
There's something about this smell that I weirdly like. It's quite thick so I end up mixing it with my olive oil and then apply it to my scalp and lashes. I think it might be working in thickening my lashes.
24/01/2018, By Elaine
Has made such a difference to my hair only after 2 treatments.
20/01/2018, By Kevin
Does what it promises to do. However, there are cheaper brands that does the same job just as well!
23/11/2017, By none
I love this product. Easy to apply.
16/11/2017, By Zakho
I like the smell , for some odd reason.

it feels good on the scalp, definitely thickens hair and promotes growth
17/10/2017, By Naomi
This oil is doing wonders for my hairline. I mixed it with unrefined shea butter
13/10/2017, By Mulalo Naomi
I have not used long enough to see if my hairline is growing back but i can definitely tell my eyelashes are looking longer
08/10/2017, By Hellizma
I've been using chemical products since forever and it really took a toll on my hair. My hair was brittle and straw-like. I applied this on damp hair and kept it on overnight. The next morning I saw the most dramatic improvement!!! My hair is slowly repairing and I experience a lot less breakage and tangles in the shower. I'll be using this product forever!!!
03/10/2017, By Precious
I used to have problems with my hairline , now my hair had grown so much .Will keep using
08/09/2017, By Dee
Love this cinnamon, smells nice.
04/09/2017, By Tebogo
My hair feels so much stronger.
I have not noticed much length growth, just the normal amount, but my hair is fuller and thicker.
25/08/2017, By Caren
Consistency is quite thick and I found that if you would like to use it as a hair and scalp treatment it works well if you mix it with a bit of olive/coconut oil. Haven't used it long enough to comment on whether it helps for hair growth, but it does make my hair feel soft. Would definitely continue using this product.
04/08/2017, By xxx
My daughter told me about this product and we decided to try it.....i desperately needs thicker eyebrows! Its been only two weeks now and i haven't seen any difference yet but my daughter used it for her hair and after only one use her hair felt thicker. Will buy this again for sure
01/08/2017, By Thego
Admittedly I have not tried this product for my hair but for eczema and cystic acne. I cannot tell you how much of a relief it is to be off the costly skin thinning treatments to a natural remedy that gave me eczema relief within 1 week and flattened the cystic acne within 3 days.

I could not believe my eyes. I have been singing it's praises to anyone who was willing to listen. Thanks for this.
30/07/2017, By Damiana
I have only been using this product for a little while and I can already feel the effects. I got it a week ago and I have been putting it on my eyelashes every night and I can already feel the difference!
19/07/2017, By Christine
This products works very well and the results are visible within a couple of weeks and is easy to use.. my hair line has never looked so good!
18/07/2017, By Sesi
The first time i used it, it made my hair even thicker and my hairline too, so i do love this product.
07/07/2017, By Cailin
I have been using Jamaican Black Castor oil for my hair for some time now, but recently tried this brand. Fortunately it came at a time when I had an unfortunate encounter with a shopping bag that resulted in some of the hair on my temples being pulled out. I decided to test this particular Castor oil and within 2 weeks and my hair has fully recovered! This oil is a miracle in a bottle!
03/07/2017, By lisa
Love it makes my hair looking shiny and hairdresser said to remove oil....rub shampoo to dry hair and then wet it slowly, it works well.
25/05/2017, By Malikah
I do weekly hair masks with this. Mixing it with a bit of olive and coconut oil (sometimes rosemary too)... My hair feels a lot healthier, been using it for 3 months now, along with Biotin capsules.
06/01/2017, By Kurhula
Im puzzled about the Jbco color looks like the normal castor oil ?!
08/11/2016, By Lorraine
I see an improvement on my hairline and its only a week since I started using it.I must say though that it doesn smell great ,so be warned but it is a good product.The sample you gave me though, I ticked on hair products so was hoping for a conditioner and you gave face balm:-)
14/10/2016, By Cynthia
FTH did not have this is stock when I ordered it, but within a few days they sourced it for me and my order was delivered.
The best ever!!

30/08/2016, By Abigail
JBCO is a miracle in a bottle, I had issues with my hairline and since I started using this oil my hairline is back and fuller than before.
