Amazing product

I've been using the Haitian castor oil and it has mad my hair feel so soft and really moisturizes my scalp .I love it so much can't wait to get more.

Love this oil!!!

I have a very thick head of hair and I sometimes find it difficult for my hair to feel hydrated. This product is a thicker oil and it seals in moisture very efficiently. Will be repurchasing.
