This castor oil is the perfect sealant for long-lasting moisture. It has a very nutty aroma which might bother some but I quite like the smell. Plus, the real reason i got it to was to speed up my growth rate. Which it did, but I found so much more uses for it. I use it as a hot oil treatment, leaving it on for a hour and putting a shower cap on my head. Then when I get out the shower I put some on my body. I know people don't want to go out smelling like nuts so I just put some drops of essential oils which usually does the trick to to get rid of the smell. Then when I need some added moisture I put it in my other hair products. To grow my hair massage it into my scalp for 5 minutes each day. After a couple months I saw growth. Especially around the edges since getting braids. It also helps smooth my hair from frizz and humidity. I'm already on my fourth bottle since using it in late August. You have to love this stuff!
