One of the most common questions we get at Kreyol Essence is "What hair type can use Haitian Black Castor Oil (aka lwil maskriti)" or a variation of the question "is this made for me"?

In short, Haitian Castor oil works for all hair types and textures but there are different techniques and specific blends of HBCO that we recommend after years of studies and customer feedback.

❤️ First Universal Truth: To promote hair growth, you must apply Haitian Castor Oil directly to the scalp. The GIF above shows the correct way to oil your scalp and then massage oil into the scalp. This works for men, women, and children.

❤️ Why does it work? Ricinoleic acid — a type of fatty acid found to fight inflammation — when applied to the scalp, nourishes the hair follicles and, in turn, promote hair growth (as well as protect against hair loss).

If you want quality 👌

This oil is an experience, my scalp enjoyed it's smell, it's pour opening ability is unmatched. Simply stated it's the best Haitian Oil I've ever tired. Oh and the thicknesses of the oil is 👍 not heavy I have thin frizzy hair and my hair is not weighted down. I would and have recommended this product, my daughter who is station in Italy came home for a visit and she loves it. You will not regret it.

Hooked on the oil

I'll forever be a fan of the oil. I love how it moisturizes my hair. I normally purchase the chocolate vanilla scent, but I branched out and got the mango, papaya, & coconut and it smells soooo good.

Did what it was supposed to do

The toner was good. It did what it was supposed to do, I just was not very enthusiastic about it because I did not like the smell. I usually use just rose water as my toner and that has been working fine for me. I would recommend it for those that are not picky about scents, because after all, it did work.
