The lovely folks at Qhemet Biologics saw my review and gave me 5 bottles of their delicious Castor and Moringa Softening Serum to give away! Now you can try it for yourself and hopefully report back and share your experience!

Don't forget to leave a name!

On Sunday, Sept 18th at 5pm eastern, the contest will close and I'll randomly choose 5 winners.

Good luck!

*************************************************


After trying yet another oil that I've fallen helplessly in love with, I've come to the conclusion that it must be the CASTOR OIL! It's in every single pre-mix I adore. I'm a sucker for the dreamy serum like consistency... it softens, protects, controls frizz, has a touch of natural hold, and makes my hair feel like silk.

I was gifted a bottle of Castor and Moringa Softening Serum by Qhemet for review months and months ago. I packed, gave away a lot of products (hey Shalonda and Tia girl!), moved 600 miles away, unpacked (somewhat), lost a ton of stuff in transit, and most certainly forgot about this oil. The other day I went into the study to straighten up and saw it sitting out on hubby's desk. I asked how he liked it, assuming like with my other stuff, he had already tried it. Apparently he thought it was his glasses cleaner (he obviously needs those glasses!) and grabbed it by mistake. Long story short, I used it on my twists and the rest is history. The man likes it too. I love the fragrance, the consistency, and how soft it leaves my fingers after application. The only thing I don't quite get is the spray pump as a method of delivery. I also wish it came in a larger size.

I jumped online today to research Moringa oil. This is what I do every single time I like a product... I read up on the ingredients to see what 'benefits' I'm getting. Anyway, I stopped after hitting the second website and concluded that while I'm sure Moringa is bomb, IT'S GOTTA BE THE CASTOR OIL!

Later Gators,
Nik


About Qhemet's Castor and Moringa Serum:

  • Ingredients: Contains 100% pure Castor and Moringa Oils. Moringa Oil is a highly valued emollient used in African and Indian hair and skin care traditions for over 2000 years. Moringa seed oil is rich in fatty acids, vitamins A and C and copper and calcium, important nutrients for the skin and scalp. It is also an excellent pre-wash hair conditioner as it naturally possesses cleansing and nourishing proprieties. African Castor Oil has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs dating back to 4000 B.C. The castor bean plant is native to the Ethiopian region of tropical East Africa. This thick, shiny oil acts as a barrier agent and protective medium against harsh conditions and extremes. It is a natural humectant and possesses hair conditioning, thickening and softening properties. Protects ends and moisturizes dry, brittle and coarse hair.
  • Does not contain mineral oil, lanolin, proteins, silicones, artificial fragrances, dyes or parabens.
  • Has a natural, light citrus scent.
  • 100% Vegan, 100% Natural!
Directions: Use as a:
  • Softening and shine enhancing leave in: Spray a small to moderate amount all over damp hair to restore softness, shine and flexibility.
  • Hot oil treatment: Heat bottle until warm and coat entire scalp and hair. Cover hair with plastic and wrap with a towel. Leave in for 15 minutes to an hour. Rinse with warm water. Use this treatment twice a month or when your hair needs deep conditioning.
  • Oil Rinse: Use as a hair wash. Moringa Oil has natural cleansing properties so it can effectively clean hair on its own. Completely coat hair, massage through and rinse with warm water.
  • Post shampoo treatment: Use after shampooing. Completely coat hair, thoroughly massage in and rinse with warm water.
  • Conditioner booster: Add to your favorite shampoo or conditioner for added emollience, slip and moisture.
  • Replenishing all-over body moisturizer.

Yep! I LOVE castor oil by itself and also Oyin burnt sugar pomade! Just melts in your hair like butter!

Libby said...

YES! I had recently read a post about 5 best oils on Savvy Brown's blog and I started thinking again about castor oil. I just gave it a try starting last year and really enjoyed it. Previously, I never thought about castor oil on the hair; all I could remember was how people used it for its laxative properties so when I smell it, it brings back bad memories. lol

However, I was thinking of how I'd love to add a little something (like an essential oil) to help with fragrance as well as the other beneficial properties. Castor oil makes my twists hold, have more shine, and feel terrific. Definitely a keeper!

Tiffany said...

I love it to. Makes my hair soft and doesn't it promote growth?

I've had a bottle sitting under my sink (uh, stash of hair oils) and recently tried in my shea butter mixture and flaxseed gel, so far I really like it.

Anonymous said...

i discovered the wonderment that is castor oil last winter. i used it to seal under my KCCC for wash and goes and man, i'm telling you, pretty frizz free ringlets for days! i tried it out after reading about it promoting growth and a looser curly mentioning how she used it as a hair serum.

also, Nisus did a review on her product combo that gave her terrific curls and it included, what do you know, castor oil! http://www.itsjusthair.com/2011/02/product-ive-been-keeping-secret.html

Castor oil is the BEST oil for my hair...without it my hair is soooo very dry! People be sleepin on it but it is the only thing that really keeps my hair moisterized, especially when I had a TWA

Anonymous said...

Castor oil is GREAT for twist outs, wash n going etc....it's the best $3.00 i ever spent. I get the regular bottle (in the laxative aisle) of walmart and it serves my hair up just fine. It's really not need for any other oil in my stash.

Jax said...

I bought some Moringa softening serum a month ago and fully concur with your review. I LOVE castor oil like Paula Deen loves butter! The smell of the Moringa is pleasant and it really helps calm my frizz. A bigger bottle is necessary.

Jin said...

YES girl, I'm addicted to Jamaican Castor Oil....I apply it to wet hair after co-washing and it makes my hair feel/look so good.

CURLYNIKKI said...

I have yet to try the Jamaican Black Castor Oil. How does it compare to the cold pressed cheap stuff I buy at Walmart?

CURLYNIKKI said...

lol @ Jax and loving castor oil like Paula Dean loves butter. nice. Me and you both!

hairscapades said...

JBCO is my sweetie! Love it. It's thinner than traditional castor oil and it makes my ends soooo soft. I have fine hair and tried shea butter to seal when I first learned of the principles of moisturizing and sealing, it was just too heavy and seemed to just sit on my hair. JBCO seems to absorb so that it does not create a tacky/sticky, greasy or "chalky" surface. It just leaves my ends ends soft and sheeny. LOVE it! It is definitely one of my Holy Grail products!!

I love the spray delivery method. Its a neater application, you can spray the oil into your hands or spray directly on the hair. I just bought Shea Moistures reconstructive elixir spray oil and I LOVE it. It made my braid-out turn out amazing. Like the best ever and I'm a new curly. It does contain castor oil. I am definitely looking at keeping spray oils in my stash. Thanks for the review on this spray oil.
Oil made my hair grow to the middle of my back when I was straight so I'm trying to figure out how to use them as a curly. Spray oils help keep my curl definition more than a heavier butter. Especially with wash & go's any type of rubbing on my hair and my curls are gone.

thenaturalmo said...

i just recently started using just plain ole castor oil and I love it. I had been trying to find JBCO on the ground and had no luck so I just ordered the plain stuff from vitacost. I have been using for about a week around my edges. I have seen on the forums how the ladies had experienced growth so i am hoping it fills in the thin spots

Anonymous said...

It took me a few applications before I liked castor oil. I also had the Jamaican Black Castor Oil. At first it feels heavy on my hands, but my hair absorbs it nicely and it keeps my ends moisturized. Oddly enough, although it feels heavy on my hands, it doesn't on my hair.

I knew Shelli (Hairscapades) would chime in on this post. She was actually the one who unintentionally encouraged me to try it. She swears by JBCO! LOL

hairscapades said...

LOL @ Rece. Well ... you know. That's mah baaaabyyyy!! We ride or die!! LOL!! (I sooo try to be hip ... when I'm sooooo not. LOL!)

I'm new to castor oil just this week and wish I tried it much sooner IT'S GREAT! I got a scent free brand from Amazon and it's fabulous. I'm having breakage so trying castor oil for it's hair growing properties. Love how nice and thick it is. Did my twists tonight and my twist have never looked this good and defined!

Castor oil is one of my fave oils! I love the softness after using it and it really curbs the frizz.It really locks in the moisture for ages too.

Totally agree with you Nikki, I love castor oil and I also really like the Qhemet oil!

I use JBCO and cold pressed castor oil just about every other day.

Castor oil is a staple when doing my hair. I never twist or wear my puff without it. I order the large bottle from Iherb because the little bottle at the drug store don't last me that long.

And I am STILL using the STASH of products you gave me. So glad I could help you "clean out"
your stash. LOL!!

Ashley Jane said...

I love castor oil especially in the winter months when I load my hair up with it and keep my twists in all week. I don't add any extra moisture or oil to my hair the entire week, just wrap it up before bed, and when I take my hair down for wash day it's STILL moisturized. The combo of that oil and protective styles have resulted in MAJOR length retention and healthy near split-less ends with minimal trimming!

adrien said...

castor oil is the shish lol! i use it in all my mixes and dc's. castor oil has a mild humectant property to it which is why i think it keeps hair moisturized so well. my shea mix is like a whole new product with it. i liked it before but i LOVE it now with the castor oil in it. my hair actually feels and looks moist and hydrated, not just lubricated. and i mean for DAYS! i can wear a twist/braid out for days without reapplying anything to it and it will still feel soft.

I don't really dislike my body, but if I had to choose it's best feature I would say my lips or my face. I LOVE the way I look, and not to sound conceited but my love for myself (and thats deeper than just what I look like on the outside) has gotten even deeper since I went natural over 2 years ago because I notice a lot of my own features that make me pretty.. AND THATS THE PG-13 VERSION of what I love MOST about my body....hahahaha...I have used Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil and I must say I love that stuff.

Jax said...

I love that I was born with moles all over my body, some are visible to the world, like on my lower lip (that folks say means good luck!) right next to the bridge of my nose, the one on my cheek bone, the one on my chin that looks like a painted on beauty spot :-) and then there are the others that only my Doctor and lover (ok, my Mother and sisters too) know are there.... makes me unique!!

Hello Curly Nikki...the one thing I love about my body would be my feet. I chose my feet because growing up I thought I had the longest toes and did not like them. However, after being told on more than one occassion that my feet were pretty and that nothing was wrong with my toes, I looked at them in a different way, embraced them and learned to love them along with the rest of me. Now I keep them done and wear them out in sandals proudly when it's hot out.

I myself love my shoulders. They are a regal asset that I love to show off. Thinking of how much I love my shoulders helps me remember to walk up straighter. I wonder if I could use this serum on my shoulders?

I love my hair. It's taken me so long to be able to say that. I'm half white and half black, but I thought I identified more with my white side, so I straightened and relaxed it until it broke off to chin length. Now, I'm 20 and have this huge mass of curls on my head. When I started wearing my hair natural, I started loving myself more.

I love your post first of all. I love many things about my body but one of the most top things I love is how my body allowed me to grow a little seedling into a tiny baby and after nine protective months allowed me to safely deliver into this world a beautiful healthy baby girl.Then after my body made sure the delivery of my baby was completed, it started the healing process for me to be able to be strong and healthy to take care of myself so I can be the best mommy and wife to my daughter's and my hubby.

The one thing that I have grown to love about my body is the my thighs. I wanted to be just like my mom and weigh 90 lbs. sopping wet but that's not what God had in store for my huge thighs.

I have to say that I love my nose and my chest. After having a cancer scare a few years ago, I thought that my boobs were scary and a mine field waiting to happen after that.

One thing I love about my body:
My eyes... more so the color of my eyes. They're green, but I've been told they change color. Sometimes they'll look gray, but I think that really has to do with all the gray cloudy weather. Others have asked if they are hazel... I think its kind of cool. :)

Also this product seems great! I've been searching for an oil that’s all natural, but haven’t had very much success. Most beauty supply stores have only products that contain mineral oil and/or petroleum jelly...Yuck!

I LOVE my eyes. They're hazel or green or brown depending on the weather or what I'm wearing. I must admit I often forget I have 'pretty eyes' because I'm always focused on my hair when looking in the mirror. lol. I often stare others with 'pretty eyes' down and go out of my way to tell them their eyes are pretty and they always say...'you have pretty eyes too'. --yeah but I can see yours! :)

I love my thighs. My fiancee' gloats over them non-stop to the point where it makes me bashful. Hopefully on this weight-loss kick (need to get my stomach right), I don't lose an inch. We'll see! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!!!!

I would have to say that my favorite part of my body are my legs. As a kid, I thought they were chicken legs but now i realized that they are long, shapely, and beautiful.

I love my eyes truly. From the day I was born to now, my eyes have and is my best feature. I don't really have to put on eye make-up at times because my eyes look that great

What do I love best about my body? Well I think there are two things that stand out that are apart of a bigger concept. Always loved my big almond shaped eyes and smile. Get the most compliments on other "assets" (he he) but I can appreciate compliments on a smile because a smile is infectious and can brighten up the most sour day and eyes are the gateway to the soul. I would like to think that when someone looks into my eyes they see the inner beauty I think radiates ten times more than the physical body but pairs as a nice compliment to everything else.

I love my legs. I have always had big calves. I run 5 days a week, and I must say the calves will catch someone's attention. My pumps really allows the muscle to be flexed.

Hi all not to be difficult or to be sentimental the one thing I love about my body is that it's "mines". It gives me the capability to adapt, to exhale, to learn how to love, be loved & etc. For years I have always been the flamingo of everyone because I was too tall, I had full lips, I wasn't a size zero or I spoke too proper to be a woman of color. I love my body as a whole even if it took me twenty-one years to accept it, it's mines and I love it flaws and all ;)

I love my lips, my legs, heck; I love all of me! I wish more women of color accepted every part of them including hair and skin tone. African American women are the most beautiful women on Earth. :)

I love my butt (and my hubby loves that part of my body also). No matter how much weight I lose (or gain), its round and just there. It ain't goin nowhere. Funny thing is my oldest daughter (only 5) has the same shape as her momma..."baby got back"!!

Quite honestly, when I first read the question, I thought to myself, "omg, out of all of the questions in the world to ask, why did it have to be this one". Lol. I must admit that I have been struggling with getting in better shape and cutting out all of the bad things that I currently eat. So, my current state is not where I want to be a couple of months down the road. With that being said, I absolutely love my legs. My husband compliments me all the time on how nice they are. With all of the things that I feel I need to work on, both internally as well as externally, it's nice to hear things like that from the one who's opinion matters the most (outside of your own). P.S. I'm addicted to the site!

I'd have to say I love my breasts. Let me explain, for at least another year I will be able to enjoy these 38Cs sitting on my chest while I breastfeed my now 4 month old. After our breastfeeding journey is done they will go back to little As lol Oh the joys of motherhood :)

PS. The postpartum shedding bug hit me again so maybe the castor oil will help.

I love my eyes and eyelashes....Not only do I appreciate the symmetrical, almond shape that allows for great eye shadow application :), but despite all the negativity going on around me, they always seem to find the most positive of images to brighten even my darkest hour.

ggrox said...

I love my feet, not because of any particular aesthetic about them. But I love them because they do so much work for me, so I try to treat them well :)

Chinyere said...

I love my mouth (lips & teeth). I have a really pretty smile! I had been teased a lot about having big lips and teeth.

We were too poor for braces and I am Nigerian, so big lips come with the territory. A school photographer took a candid picture of me laughing in the cafeteria. It looked so pretty. So after years of trying NOT to smile, I started smiling as BIG as I could. My pictures actually looked better and more natural. It was like Celie on Color Purple when Suge Avery convinced her to smile.

I haven't stopped showing ALL of my teeth since. So if you walk by a girl smiling like she is crazy--holla at your girl (LOL)!

I LOVE my mouth and smile! I love my mouth because I do my best to use it to encourage and lift people up. I love my smile because I use it to brighten the day of those that I encounter. The two together make for a great combination of sunshine and a genuine brightness to the world.........At least that's what I try to convey through my spirit! Thanks for the opportunity to win - Nikki you are the best!

I absolutely love the complexion of my skin of my body. People
tend to misjudge my nationality due to my complexion
and healthy natural hair. When people find I represent being
black and beautiful, sometimes they receive shock. But what I
recieve is the reassurance that the beauty you see, is just plain ol beauty
regardless of nationality.

I love my hands! I use the all the time and I love to make sure they are maintained and super soft to the touch. I keep manicured nails... and really love having funky colors and designs for special events.

I love my teeth. My parents never got them straightened when I was young and two are a lottle crooked. But when I got older, I started searching for my mom's biological family. (She was adopted). When I found them, her brother had the same two crooked teeth! So I. Kind of cherish my teeth. Reminds me that I am part of a family, even if I just met them.

Hey Nikki,

What do I love about my body? Hmmm...well I would have to say my eyes, b/c they are not only the windows to the soul, but they are sort of japanese/chinese shaped and when I smile, they will squint just a lil on the ends. Too funny...

Hope you have a good one Nikki!!!

Gloria said...

I love so many things about my body that it is hard to choose just one! I absolutely ADORE my hips, though. They look good when I'm just sitting still, they look good when I move, and they look fantastic when I dance, lol. ;)

i love everything about my body! it gets me where i need to go. it allows me to work hard and play hard which i do both of haha. my husband loves it, my friends ask how they can get it. way to go, body!

Nisha T. said...

I love my skin, my curves, my features. I especially love the way my waist curves in and my hips bow out. I love my bosom because I think they are beautiful. I love that after having 3 kids, my boobies plumped up instead of deflating, as other women complain about. I love that they somehow also added 2 cup sizes, lol. Wait, did you say one thing? hahahaaaa...What can I say? I love all of me!!!

I love my large lips. Many women will pay big bucks, but I don't have to. They make wearing bright lipsticks so much more fun.

I love my lips/smile. I can be looked upon as stern and taken so seriously, and with just the upturn of the lips, my smile can brighten my face and draw people in. :)

my body is both athletic [so it responds well to diet changes and fitness routines] as well as old school curvy. I'm tall, slender in the waist/stomach/legs/shoulders/arms with big boobs and booty-- it's really nice! I feel fit, I feel strong, I feel healthy, I feel beautiful, and looking at it in the morning makes me so grateful that not only can I walk and move but that I can do so while looking great! I promise i'm not conceited, heheh


p.s. so glad you're coming to ny :)

Hmm...I've got to admit, I've had a love hate relationship with my body since I was probably 12 or so. I've always been on the heavy side no matter how much I change my eating habits or work out. But I can definitely say I love my skin. It tends to stay soft and doesn't really blemish. I especially love my skin in the summer because I get a good few shades darker (I get so pale during the winter months).

I love my feet. They have gotten me through many years of dance and cheerleading despite being extremely flat. They have worn pointe shoes, jazz shoes, sneakers, high heels, and are still going strong. They have endured criticism about how they were not "right" for ballet and are marked by hours spent practicing. They have taken me places I have never imagined and continue to lead me down the path of life. :)

What I like about my body is what it can do. I am a competitive weightlifter, and while I neeeever predicted this would be a part of my life-- let alone one that is so important for me-- and I thought I'd never get a date again, if I was a weightlifter! (I was quite sure my squats weren't going to bring the boys to the yard...) But, I get an amazing sense of what is possible and what I can accomplish, all because of the things my body can do and has done, just because I've asked it to and believed that it could.

Juliana said...

I love my arms for most of my life I would always wear sweat jackets even in the summer because I felt ashamed of my arms. Then I hit the point where I realized self acceptance in this life is so important to achieve and I love my arms, stretch marks and all.

I have always loved my body. And after having my son, more so, because it's a remarkable symbol of strength, and beauty. It was a realization on a another level that I never understood until I actually went through it. Experiencing the strength of my body to house and create this beautiful being made me appreciate my body even more. I now have wider hips, a hint of stretch marks, and slightly larger feet but I love my body and all of its perfect imperfections! These things will be my keepsakes during every milestone and accomplishment my son achieves and will always remind me of my unconditional love for him.

I love my long skinny silky brown legs. Growing up I was always teased about being tall & skinny. I was literally a "walking" target for jokes. Two of my many nick names that has stuck w/ me to this say are "skinny legs" & "string bina", I hated it. But as I got older & started to embrace & love myself as a women I learned to love them. And they are oh so smooth, my legs are the bomb.com especially in some heels.
