How it’s Made
Each step in the creation of Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil is designed to preserve and enhance the natural benefits of the castor bean. The result is a high-quality oil that nourishes, strengthens, and revitalizes your hair and skin.
Step 1: Selection of castor beans
The process starts with a careful selection of high-grade Jamaican castor beans. These beans are known for their rich oil content, which is packed with essential nutrients that are beneficial for hair and skin health.
Step 2: Roasting of the beans
The hand-picked beans are roasted until they assume a deep brown hue. The thermal exposure introduces ash into the oil, subsequently elevating its alkalinity levels. Such pH conditions are conducive to scalp health, hair growth, and skin moisture retention.
Step 3: Grinding the beans
After roasting, the beans are ground into a paste, which releases oil from the beans and prepares them for extraction.
Step 4: Boiling the paste
The ground bean paste is then boiled in water, upon which oil rises to the surface for collection.
Step 5: Skimming and packaging
The resultant 100% pure, unrefined oil is ultimately skimmed off the water’s surface and packaged.

How to Use Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil is a multifaceted product that can be used in various ways to improve your hair and skin health. Here's how to incorporate it into your beauty regimen:
For hot oil treatment
Using Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil for hot oil treatment will deeply nourish your hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and strong.
Step 1: Shampoo your hair
Start by washing your hair with a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. For the best results, consider using Kuza Jamaican Black Castor Oil Moisture Enriched Sulfate-Free Shampoo.
Step 2: Apply the oil
After rinsing out the shampoo, towel dry your hair until it's damp but not soaking wet. Then, take a generous amount of Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil and apply it to your hair. Start from your roots and work your way down to the hair tips.
Step 3: Massage your scalp
Once your hair is coated with the oil, go on and massage the scalp gently. That’ll not only distribute the oil, but also stimulate blood circulation to your hair follicles for increased hair growth.
Step 4: Cover your hair
Next, cover your hair with a plastic cap to keep it warm. This allows the oil to penetrate deeper into your hair shafts for maximum nourishment.
Step 5: Heat your hair
For the best outcome, sit under a dryer for 15-30 minutes. Heat from the dryer will open up your hair cuticles and push the oil deeper for even more intense hydration. If you don't have a dryer, you can wrap a warm towel around your head.
Step 6: Rinse and style
Rinse your hair thoroughly to remove the oil, after which you could condition and style it to your preferred taste. You'll notice that your hair feels softer, looks shinier, and is easier to manage.
For skin care
Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil is also effective in nourishing and hydrating your skin. It's suitable for all skin types and can be used regularly, depending on your skin's needs.
Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Cleanse your skin with a gentle, soap-free cleanser to remove any dirt, makeup, and other impurities from your skin.
Step 2: Apply the oil
With your fingertips, gently apply Kuza Jamaican Black Castor Oil to your skin. Start from the center of your face and work your way outwards, following the natural contours of the skin. Extend this to your neck as well, using upward strokes.
Step 3: Massage your skin
Having applied the oil, invigorate your skin with a gentle massage. Use circular motions and slight pressure to drive the oil deeper into your skin, as well as stimulate dermal blood circulation for a glowing complexion.
Step 4: Let the oil absorb
Allow the oil to permeate your skin for a few minutes, or ideally, overnight for optimal impact. If needed, any excess oil can be delicately blotted off with a tissue.
Step 5: Proceed with your regular skincare routine
Once the oil has been absorbed into your skin, you can continue with your regular skincare routine. Feel free to apply your usual toner, serum, or moisturizer as required.
