Benefits of Apricot Castor Oil:

Dry Hair?

Penetrates To Lock In Moisture from Roots to Ends!

DRY HAIR can result from not LOCKING in MOISTURE added from water and/or moisturizers. KEEP THE MOISTURE by sealing with APRICOT CASTOR OIL.

  • Promote Hair Growth
  • Seal In Moisture
  • Revive Dry Hair
  • Tame Frizz
  • Reduce Hair Breakage
  • Soften Hair
  • Soothe Itchy Scalp
  • Add Shine

Transitioning to Natural?

Those that are transitioning will really love it as it helps coat and soften the new growth, which aid against dryness and where the two different textures meet and are more prone to breaking off.

Experiencing Hair Loss?

The germicidal, insecticidal and fungicidal properties of Ricin and Ricinoleic acid present in castor oil protect the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections, the two prime causes for hair loss.

Heal follicle damage that may occur due to improper weave applications, tight cornrows and high tension braids.
The anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties help maintain a healthy scalp which again is necessary for optimal hair growth.

    I was introduced to this product by a co-worker, and my hair loves this product. I will purchase another supply soon. My son has also begin to put it on his hair as well and he loves how his flat top isn’t so dry anymore and he’s able to style his hair. I also love the smell this product leaves on my hair.

    This is the best castor oil I have ever used, I used it religiously for one month. My hair grew and was so soft and manageable, I will be ordering some for myself and my friends that are going natural.

    I just use this product last night after my wash for the first time and my hair was soft and shiny once I took my hair out from the banding method, I liked how my hair felt. I ordered another bottle just find out that it’s on back ordered at least I have one bottle for now.

    I am in love with this product. It now is my holy grail I can’t live without it. My frizzies are gone my twist and braid definition is on fleek. Now I know why it was on back order. Will be ordering again and again don’t want to run out. I wonder is this the only product thirst roots sells? Let me know please !!!!!

    I love this product I was told that my follicles were dead since I were wearing braids for a longtime and my edges are thinning out since I been using this product and I use curl activator alone with it I can see some fuzzy hairs coming in I’m so happy do you have shampoo and conditioner with this product as well

  12. Pamela Aduya (verified owner)

    Love this oil! It moisturizes and adds shine to my hair without making it greasy! The smell is incredible. I rub it on my relaxed hair and flat iron it and my hair shines and sparkles like diamonds! It’s on back-order i hope i receive it before it run out!

    its a nice product i approve it ….

  14. Desi (verified owner)

    I didn’t realize how effective this oil was until I saw how shiny and bouncy my hair was. I was dumfounded at how my hair looked so different, it just seemed to blossom form using this oil. After I put it on, even my little brother noticed my hair looked different. I’ve been wanting to try this oil for years, the wait was worth it. This just might replace my 7 wonders Miracle Oil!!

    I wanted to say how wonderful your product is. My hair was breaking due to medication I was taking. My friend recommended Thirsty Roots. I ordered it and all I can say is WoW!! Within 3 weeks of using Thirsty Roots I had new growth and now my natural hair has bounced back. I also have recommended your product. Although the breakage has stopped I still order the product. I will be making another order in a few days. Thank you. P.S. It smells wonderful!!!!

    That moment when you find a staple product…VICTORY!!!! This oil smells amazing, I really had to contemplate about tasting it or not lol. Although the thought of castor oil may seem like it might have a heavy/thick consistency, it’s actually the right balance and is not too heavy. A little of this Gold goes a long way! I was so overjoyed at finally finding a staple (cause we all know how hard it is to find a staple that agrees with our hair) I called my friend, bragged about it, and ended up buying her a bottle too! Thanks Thirsty Roots!

    This oil is the bomb.com! I remember being on my computer searching for a product that would aid in my transition, because I was frustrated with the process, and in my search I stumbled upon this site. This site is great and the Apricot Castor Oil has been truly a blessing to my hair! 🙂 It works great as a moisture sealer in my hair and I now use it on both my girls’ hair and one year old son after I was his hair as well. My husband even uses it on his beard and my God it works wonders! His beard is beautifully full but thick and wirery and it really helps to get a comb thru it.

    I can’t wait to try this product. Stay tuned for my review.

    It’s amazing, and golden like it’s color! I love the smell. It’s used for our entire family! Staple hair product!

  20. Janaea (verified owner)

    This product is absolutely amazing! I swear my locs grew/thickened overnight and my scalp feels so good! My hair grew so much that I had to move up my retwist appointment a whole week! Yes!! The consistency is perfect and it smells amazing too! I highly recommend!

    I just tried my thirsty roots, I must say I am impressed, my hair looks soooo luscious, rich, healthy, and full. I will be continuing this and making referrals to my family and friends!!!!

    This product is soooo awesome. I cant believe the difference in my hair after 2 weeks…its a blessing for my 4c hair

  23. Annette Lee-Hines (verified owner)

    I couldn’t wait to use my product I received. And I promised to keep you informed as to my progress. Well I love what it did on my hair. It’s smooth and silky. Although I only twisted it up in a protective style., I still love what it did. It went on with ease and made my curls pop more..lol But most of all I can see and feel the difference that the regular castor oil, which left my hair heavy and very oily. I use it as directed and wow. amazing, this is now a staple product of mines..Thanks thirsty roots…
