I am starting on week 3 of my Castor Oil challenge and all is going well. I will make a proper separate post about how the last week went (you can read about my first week here) but I wanted to share my Castor Oil blend for now. I use it 3 times a week to:
- Massage my scalp
- Massage my hairline
- Seal the ends of my hair
I am actually planning on increasing it to 4 times a week and who knows maybe even more as the challenge progresses. I was worried that my hair would feel greasy or that my scalp would feel icky and clogged but I can honestly say NO it does not! Even though I have fine hair, it seems to be taking quite well to the castor oil blend. I do think that the fact that I am blending my oil “diluting” it might be one reason why it is working out so well for me.
So without further ado here are the ingredients I use:
- Increase hair growth
- Promotes healthy hair due to omega-6 essential fatty acids
- Thickens thinning hair
- Reduces hair damage
- Eliminates dry scalps and hair
- Helps reduce scalp irritations due to anti-bacterial and fungal properties
- Helps retain moisture in the hair and scalp
- Excellent sealing oil
- Promotes shiny hair
- Boost your hair’s overall health
- Helps retain moisture
- Provides Shine
- Strengthens hair at the root
- Protects against frizz
- Gives the hair a boost of luster
- Helps stimulate growth (when massaged on the scalp)
- Can help relieve psoriasis & dandruff – (consult your dermatologist)
- Soothing effect to the scalp
- Helps combat dandruff and lice
- Promotes healthy hair growth
- Helps relive scalp irritations due to antiseptic properties
I pour my blend in a spray bottle that ends up working more like a pump because the consistency of the oil is still thick even with it being diluted a little but it works nonetheless. I use just about a coin size amount on either side of the scalp, half a coin size for my hairline and again a coin size dollop on the ends of my hair on either side (left & right).
I have a YouTube Video of how I make my oil as well (below):
If you use Castor oil I would love to hear how you use it. If you blend castor oil please let me know!

I’m actually on my 8th week doing my Castor oil challenge using JBCO only 4x/weekly. But I may have to add tea tree oil or peppermint oil to the mix. I just love how it feels on my scalp. You just reminded me!
8 weeks wow, how is it going? Have you seen/felt any changes in your hair? Both Tea Tree and Peppermint are excellent EO’s good choice :D. I am really loving this challenge. The castor oil blend will definitely be part of my routine from now on…who knew that even my fine hair could handle it!
