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).

I enjoyed this oil. The fragrance was wonderful - I got compliments because of it. Next time, I will order a bigger bottle! Also, I have began to notice that my hair appears thicker since I started using it.

Just Right!

I loved my free sample of the Moringa oil. It's not too greasy and it mixes well with the natural oils on my face.

These products leave my hair soft and smooth. The fragrance is light and refreshing.
