Castor Oil Challenge – Redux!!

The Castor Oil Challenge was such a huge success on my Facebook page, the Naturalista’s asked if we could continue it….so we have with a few modifications.

Here are the details:

Challenge Levels:

Basic: Apply Castor Oil to a clean scalp 1-2 times per week

Advance: Apply Castor Oil to a clean scalp 2-3 times per week.

Ultimate: Apply Castor Oil to your scalp 5-7 times per week. You must deep condition with a 1-2 tsp of your Castor Oil mixed in your deep conditioner and/or use it to seal your ends.


1. Your Castor Oil MUST be 100% Castor Oil. Grease cannot be used as a substitute on the scalp. However, it can be used to seal i.e. Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil.

2. If you are doing the Basic or Advance level, the Castor Oil must be applied to a clean scalp to allow better penetration so that your scalp can absorb all the nutrients from the oil.

3. One must report any changes, improvements, success in your hair/new growth. This will inspire others!

4. Please upload a photo of your hair progress after the Challenge is complete (there will be a particular thread created for this).

I am doing the Ultimate Challenge level and this is how I apply castor oil to my scalp & hair.  I put 2-3tbsp of castor oil in a small container along with 5-8 drops of an essential oil and massage my scalp…the leftover is enough to seal my ends, once a week I use 1/4 cup warm castor oil mixed with 1/2 cup of conditioner to deep condition my hair.
