Many people swear by it and for others it doesn't work as good. Maybe she could tell by your scalp it was doing more bad then good. I used Doo Gro for 4 years with no problem.

If your hair likes castor oil then I would stick with it. I love castor oil and would so much rather use that then Doo Gro. The first ingredient in Doo Gro oil is mineral oil which we all know is a no-no, but it also has other good ingredients. Just go with how your hair feels.

Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Retinal (Vitamin A), Ergocalciferol (Vitamin D2) (Vitamin D), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E) (Vitamin E), Chamomila Recuita (Matricaria) Extract, Goldenseed Extract, Hops Extract, Soap Bark Extract, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ) Oil, Cherry Bark Extract, Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) Flower Extract, Henna Extract, Horsetail Plant Extract, Safflower

Mineral oil isn't bad for your hair. It doesn't absorb like coconut oil and people say it blocks out moisture. But is is made to keep moisture in. I don't like "she say" I need facts so I did a lot of reading. There is also a difference between industrial mineral oil and cosmetic mineral oil people think its industrial in hair care products.

I guess it depends on the person. For me, mineral oil based products clogs my pores and doesn't allow moisture to penetrate my hair strands.

Yes because its a coating to sit on the hair not the scalp.

Okay...then this goes back to Malika's original question about using Doo Grow oil to oil her scalp. If the first ingredient is Mineral Oil, then obviously it's a Mineral Oil based product which if used on her scalp will probably clog her pores as well. Opposed to Castor Oil which has germicidal, insecticidal and fungicidal properties of Ricin/Ricinoleic acid to help protect the scalp and hair from microbial and fungal infections.
