"I've been experimenting with OKAY's Haitian Black Castor Oil for the past month. Ironically, it is the only oil that I have previously avoided. Haitians use their castor oil ( aka L'huile Masqueti) for EVERYTHING. It is the remedy for every disease, wound, scrape...EVERYTHING lol. Haitians claim that L'huile Masqueti "brings back thinning edges" and is good for your hair's overall health. I've read good things about castor oil...no matter what country it came from..so I've always wanted to try it. The only problem is..I'M ALLERGIC..or so I was told. Most of my Haitian friends called me lucky, because I was never rubbed down with it or forced to swallow a tablespoon of it.

Castor oil benefits for hair:
A treatment for hair thinning and hair loss
Nourishes the hair and prevents the scalp from drying by retaining moisture
Castor oil is a humectant- has the ability to draw moisture from the air.
Has anti-fungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties

The consistency OKAY's Haitian Castor Oil is similar to L'huile Masqueti but the color is different. Authentic L'huile Masqueti is a red brown color. OKAY's product is referred to as "Black Haitian Castor Oil" which may be different from the traditional L'huile Masqueti...I really just don't know. I'm not bashing OKAY's product but when I noticed this difference I decided to try it.

Needless to say, I loved it. I really enjoyed the texture of the oil. It really does take moisture retention to a whole new level. It left my hair feeling shiny and moisturized. The best part of it all is that I did not break out. The only fault is that it is a heavy oil so you really have to watch the amount you're applying. Honestly, I'm just glad I did not break out. Haitians usually get their oil directly from Haiti...it is something that migrants will bring back to the states after visiting home. This oil hasn't gone through processing and is as natural as can be. This may be part of the reason why it is irritating to be skin. I DON'T KNOW lol..I'm just guessing here."

"But what I do know is that this oil is officially part of my regimen."
