Product Review: Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil Aloe Vera.
After using this product for 6+ weeks while in Japan, I am ready to share my thoughts and experiences with this particular item. First off, I live in South Florida where humidity is a nightmare, and a hassle. After being told, that Japan’s humidity is similar or worse than Florida, I decided to carry a few essential stuff with me (I should have carried everything, but that’s for another blog post). The JBCO Aloe Vera oil had caught my attention mainly because of the combination and their benefits. There’s not a lot of reviews on it, but its a great find. This was the only oil I took with me to Japan, so I had no choice but to use it!

At the beginning of the stay in Japan it was difficult, I had to figure how my hair would deal with Japan’s humidity; which was at its peak in the morning to late afternoon. I’ve had to tweak my solution a few times and got the hang of it within the third week of the stay. I’ve experienced a few shedding, dried ends thanks to the weather, but nonetheless I didn’t give up. By week four I’ve experienced less shedding, moisture retention, and my hair getting slightly thicker (although I have thick hair already). I usually use oils every 3-4 days but for Japan I had to use this baby every two days on my hair and my scalp. The oil just like any JBCO has a thick consistency, so my hair felt heavy by the 4th day of usage. I’ve used this only for sealing my ends and moisturizing my scalp. It performed really well on my hair as well.
I know Japan’s climate was a huge factor with dealing with my hair, mainly because after returning home for 2 weeks I’ve continued to use the oil and had better results. I applied the oil every 3-5 days depending on how my hair behaves, the sealing of the moisture lasted a lot longer, and shedding significantly decreased. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase. Below are some photos of hairstyles I rocked in Japan.
