When selecting a castor oil, consider the black owned brands presented below.  

Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant Ricinis communis.  According to Black Doctor.org, castor oil has many uses.  These include uses for health and beauty.  Castor oil helps with managing split ends, treating skin conditions such as acne, pain management, and promoting digestive health.  Furthermore, castor oil is an excellent moisturizer for the face.  These benefits explain why castor oil is a common ingredient in hair and beauty products.

Black castor oil (e.g., from Jamaica or Haiti), that is extracted using the traditional roasting method, is said to be especially good for Afro-textured hair.  This method increases the mineral and alkaline levels within the castor oil.  Consequently, black castor oil serves as a moisturizer of both the hair and skin, and can promote hair growth.  In choosing a castor oil then, it is a good idea to consider the type and method of extraction.
