This new beauty brand is making waves with its lightweight Jamaican Black Castor Oil
It is no Secret that Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) is a miracle product. JBCO has been credited for assisting with regrowth and thickening of thinning hair among a myriad of other uses. Many complain however about the bad smell and thick consistency of the product. Authentic by Carissa Joelle has produced a locally sourced Jamaican Black Castor Oil that addresses these major concerns.
Authentic by Carissa Joelle’s JBCO is a light weight locally sourced castor oil that I have been using since May of this year. The product is nicely packaged and has the bonus of providing a dropper. The smell is hardly noticeable and it’s 100% pure. When I first received my product I was wearing braids. As beautiful as they are, they often cause friction that may lead to damaged edges. To combat this, I used a small amount of my Authentic by Carissa Joelle JBCO and a few drops of tea tree oil and peppermint oil extract to massage my scalp around my edges every other night.
After removing my braids, I did a hot oil treatment once again using the three oils previously mentioned. I put a small amount of all three oil in a glass bottle. I placed that bottle in a cup of hot water for five minutes and applied it to my scalp. I then applied a steam cap and sat under my hooded dryer for 30 minutes. The results were great.
I strongly recommend Authentic by Carissa Joelle JBCO because it is light weight, nicely packaged and most importantly a partnership with local farmers. They only use oil made from seeds produced locally in Jamaica and this helps communities. They are 100% Jamaican. I encourage you to follow their social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and/ or twitter for other customer reviews as well as uses. The great thing is that they are an e-commerce brand so you can get your bottle regardless of where you’re located. You can get in touch with them at authenticbycarissajoelle.com Kudos to Carissa and her team for producing such a high quality product.
