MAY•11’s main ingredient is the potent Jamaican Black Castor Oil.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO) is one of the world’s most ancient healing oils. It has been used for centuries for its powerful therapeutic, cosmetic and medicinal properties, and has been claimed as the secret to thick, luxurious and shiny hair.
Made from the beans of the Castor Oil plant, Jamaican Black Castor Oil is developed by first roasting the bean. This roasting method creates ash that becomes a vital part of the oil’s composition. The ash found in JBCO gives it a distinctive dark color and a unique nutty scent, and raises the oil’s pH balance which makes it more Alkaline.
This higher Alkaline pH level improves the opening of the hair cuticles, allowing all the benefits of MAY•11’s Revitalizing Hair Nutrition to be effectively absorbed into your hair.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil works for all hair types to moisturize, thicken, strengthen and rapidly optimize hair growth.
Regular use of JBCO restores moisture balance to dry, brittle and damaged hair, leaving it shiny, including chemically treated and heat-damaged hair. With its unique composition high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega-6 and -9 beneficial fatty acids, JBCO promotes optimal scalp health by increasing circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles.
