Authentic by Carissa Joelle


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 Kudos to Carissa and her team for producing such a high quality product.
