Bennett announced the partnership via Instagram.
November 26th when I was announced as Miss Universe 2nd runner-up, I stood in that corner and I cried! I cried because I was finding every reason for what I did wrong that made me feel like I lost once more. #ad I wasn’t thinking about history, nor what happened on that stage until my coach came to me and said, “Miss Jamaica, wipe your tears, because what you have done here tonight, no one as done it before and you are extraordinary!” I then realized what my participation represented for women and girls across the world that look just like me. Today I am proud to announce that I am the FIRST-EVER face of @SheaMoisture’s JAMAICAN BLACK CASTOR OIL COLLECTION I will keep on representing! I am a winner!
