Product review: Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Castor Oil Conditioner

Before you buy this conditioner, please read this genuine review. I decided to do this review after someone left a comment that she had a not-so-good experience when she used the Jamaican Castor Oil Shampoo and Conditioner together.

Although, I have this conditioner in my Sizzelle E-store, I feel that I must be as candid as possible.

My thoughts

After shampooing my hair, I applied this conditioner. It didn’t feel creamy at all. This conditioner should NOT be called a conditioner because it doesn’t make hair soft AT ALL: on the contrary, it makes your hair brittle, almost like a hard protein treatment.

Although I was really disappointed when I used it, I wasn’t surprised though because

  1. It doesn’t contain water as the first ingredient. Its first ingredient is aloe vera juice.
  2. The actual conditioning agent (cetearyl alcohol) it contains is way at the bottom of the ingredient list.

Even when I used another conditioner afterwards, my hair still dried stiff. Maybe it didn’t work for me because I don’t  have natural hair but I don’t believe this.


My hair completely absorbed the conditioner such that I didn’t have much to rinse off. This is a sign of a good treatment. Subsequently, I have used it as a PREPOO only because it contains some essential oils like lavender, cedarwood, rosemary, pimento which stimulate hair regrowth. If it didn’t contain these ingredients, I don’t think I would bother to use it again.

I might continue to use it as a PREPOO once in a while just because of its ingredient list. That’s all.

I think that there are many other all natural deep conditioners which are silicone-free and protein-free that are way better at softening the hair than this conditioner. One clear example is BEE MINE Beeeutiful Conditioner and I will be doing a review on this soon.
