Using JBCO to ‘prepoo’

jbco as a prepoo hot-oil-treatment

You can use Jamaican black castor oil in several ways:

1. As a pre-shampoo hot oil treatment


  1. Part your hair into 2-4 sections. If your hair tangles easily, you might want to braid each section first.
  2. Dampen each hair section lightly with water or hair conditioner to allow easier spread of the oil (this step is optional).
  3. Pour the Jamaican black castor oil (JBCO) into an applicator bottle with a long tip. Apply some of the oil to your scalp and massage it in. You can warm the oil lightly if possible.
  4. Next, pour 1-2 tablespoons of JBCO into your palm and apply to EACH section. If your hair is very thick, you might use up to 3 tablespoons for each section. If your hair is fine or light, you might need only 1/2 – 1 tablespoon.
  5. If you feel that the oil is too thick and difficult to spread OR you want to conserve your castor oil, you can add a few drops of another oil e.g olive oil, jojoba oil, etc.
  6. Put on a shower cap.
  7. For increased effectiveness, you can use some heat. Sit under a bonnet dryer or steamer OR wear a heating cap for at least 20 minutes.You can even leave the oil in your hair overnight if you prefer.
  8. Wash, condition and style your hair as normal.
