Taking better care of my hair this year.   More consistent with hair care.
Finger combing and daily moisturizing seem to be key, along with D/C-ing weekly.
Summers are very hard on my hair, and it usually tends to fallout.
Hopefully I get a reprieve this Summer.

I finally received my Jamaican Black Castor Oil, and am not sure of the best way to use it.

Straight, or mixed with something else.

Any suggestions

Using JBCO for 2 days with GHE.
Love the feel of it, and the softness of my hair.

I will be trying this mask for the scalp before I cowash for the next few months.

Mustard Mask for Longer Hair


You will need:

2 Tbl Spoons of ground mustard (I actually buy a mustard powder in Russian store, used US as well, but Russian seems to have more bite, though both kinds work)

2 Tbl spoons of hot water

2 Tbl spoons of any oil (I use either olive or burdock root depending on what I have)

1 egg yolk

2 T spoons of sugar

Mix mustard with water, add oil, yolk and sugar and mix very well.  Now that we got our bright yellow mix, we come to the most important part.  Part your hair and put the mix on your head, all over your head trying to aim mostly for the skin.  Do not put it on hair ends, in fact, warm up some oil and put it on the ends of your hair to moisturize.  After you get rid of most of the mix (I actually never manage to use it all), put on a shower cap, and on top of it something warm (wool hat, shawl, warm towel, etc), I use the wool hat I take to Banya.  Voila, you’re done with the hard part and now can sit and relax, may be use this time to put on some facial mask, I mean you do have that egg white left over.  Yes, it will probably start burning, but it’s a good burn.  You have to sit AT LEAST 15 minutes (up to an hour if you can manage).  Don’t worry, you hair will not burn off your head, so unless you are allergic to some ingredients (and hopefully you know before hand), then you should be OK…and yes, I can’t guarantee anything, but I am not the only one who tried this and still have all my hair and more.  So sit tight and think of your long, thick, luxurious hair…

After at least 15 minutes, wash the mask away with warm water and then use your favorite shampoo.  You’re done!  This mask should be done at least once a week for at least 1 or 2 month depending how slow is your hair growth.

FAQ:

Do I need to use only mustard powder.  Can I use mustard, seeds, pepper?

Mustard power is a main ingredient.  Do you need a flour for the cake?  Yes, you do.  You need powder for this recipe.   I am not sure about grounding seeds, I would think it will work as it’s what powder is, but the mustard will not since it has other ingredients.

Will it damage my hair?

Everyone’s hair is very different and only you know yours.  Try it once for a little bit and see how your hair reacts.  If you have very weak, or damaged hair then don’t leave it for very long.  And absolutely make sure you are using something moisturizing on the ends.

Will it damage feather or any other extensions?

I honestly don’t know.  This is an old recipe and I don’t use extensions.  I had feathers on once but didn’t use mask then.  Try putting foil on to protect them.

Will it color my hair?

I’ve never heard of that happening and I had people who were blonds, brunettes and redheads use it, both with natural and colored hair.  But again, everyone’s hair is different.  If you are not sure, try it on a tiny part to see.

The main answer here is that everyone is different.  Your scalp, your hair even the place where you live and water can affect anything.  I always try something new for may be 10-15 minutes to make sure and see how it effects me.  I would love to hear about your experiences and how it worked for you.  It really helped me, but I know some people who did it for couple of month and it didn’t help.

Today I started infusing a hair oil for hair growth. I added mustard powder, cayenne powder,cinnamon powder, dried bamboo leaf, rosemary, basil and oregano herbs to a small bottle of olive oil. I heated it for a few minutes and then shook it up and sat it in the window sill to infuse beside the bottle of olive oil with onion and garlic that I already have in a South facing window infusing. 
In about 3 weeks, I will strain the oils, mix them together and start using them to oil my scalp and hair for hair growth.
PS I am going to pick a lot of wild mint leaves that are growing outside and add that to the bottle with the onion and garlic to disguise the odor of that infusion.

Slept on one of my Bantu Knots, and woke up with a very sore spot.

Need to re-evaluate my Moisturizer mix since I started using JBCO.

Too many Oils .
