Kreyòl Essence Haitian Black Castor Oil Light is the perfect, natural + clean solution to nourishing your dry, damaged, fine/thin and/or straight hair. Yes, it’s true, you can use it, too! Our light version of our #1 selling Haitian Black Castor Oil imparts all the tried-and-true benefits of the original, but it’s been specifically formulated to address the needs of those with finer/thinner hair!

Go to to grab this incredible, multi-purpose oil and to get the scoop on why it’s so great for hair, body, brows and more!


“…this light one from Kreyol Essence is an order-of-magnitude improvement over the stuff I grew up with. How many times a week you use it depends on how dry your hair is; mine guzzles moisture like desert soil. I smooth half a dropperful through my curls every night before bed and wake up with silky, deeply moisturized, springy, more-defined waves. It prevents tangles from ever forming, and it’s brilliantly multipurpose—hair moisturizer, hair styler, and nourishing skin care for face and body all in one…”

Product Details

This light castor oil is magic, no matter what your hair texture. Deeply moisturizing, curl-defining, and instantly frizz-smoothing, it contains the same nourishing goodness as traditional castor oil—it’s full of antioxidants, omegas, vitamin E, and protein—but feels silkier and more absorbent. It’s brilliantly multi-purpose (hair moisturizer, hair styler, and nourishing skin care for face and body all in one), and the founder is a woman who employs a 90 percent female staff in her native Haiti, where the company sustainably harvests ingredients—and where castor oil has been beloved for its skin- and hair-coddling benefits for generations. 



Apply oil to entire hair 2-3x a week to scalp and a few drops to hair to seal in moisture.  Deep Condition: Add to your conditioner or place in hair as hot oil treatment for 30-60 minutes with heat. For extremely damaged hair leave on overnight then wash hair.  Regrow Brows:  Apply nightly to clean brows.

It works like a charm

This oil is perfect. It’s very light in smell and gets the job done when applying to hair and skin. I apply it on my hair and my hair comes out naturally curly days later. It also last for a while cause my hair soaks up oil quickly. I’m going to continue to be a loyal customer. Perfecto!!!!!

I like the leave in detangler it keeps my hair soft and moisturize. I have 4c hair it helps me a lot
