You can use pure castor oil or a mix of different oils for this. Because castor oil is naturally thicker (similar to liquid honey), it is often mixed with a other oil such as jojoba oil, coconut oil or argan oil. You can of course also buy a ready-made mix. Apply a few drops of oil to your fingertips and massage the oil into the scalp. You can leave the oil on for 15 minutes, a few hours or overnight before washing it with a sulfate-free shampoo. Repeat washing if necessary.

For a mask with pure castor oil, you proceed in much the same way as with a head massage, but then apply the oil to the entire hair. Could your hair use some extra care? Then try one of the masks with castor oil.


A pre-poo is the use of oil in your hair before a wash. It puts a protective layer over your hair, so to speak, so that your hair absorbs water less (quickly) and the hair cuticles do not rise as much. This is good for two reasons: the hair swells and shrinks less and the hair is less vulnerable during washing. In addition, the hair is slightly easier to comb and dries out less quickly. Always use a well-cleansing sulfate-free shampoo such as the JBCO Shampoo Shea Moisture .
