I’ve been hearing about the benefits of Castor Oil for hair growth, and I’ve already started using it on my scalp. I’ve also decided to see what happens when you use Castor Oil for Eyelash growth. From what I’ve read, Castor Oil allows hair to reach its full growth potential – through its antibacterial and moisturisation properties.
In general, I’m happy with my eyelashes – but thickness and extra length are always a bonus. I’m hoping that there will be a postive effect, and if not – fingers crossed that I don’t end up worse off.
Here is my before shot:
I plan on taking comparison pictures after 1 month, 2 months and 3 months. By then, I should be able to see if there is an effect or not.
Every night, after I’ve washed my make-up off, I’ll use my fingertip to apply Castor Oil to the roots of my eyelashes. In the morning, I’ll wash it off.
Here is the Castor Oil I’m using:
I’m waiting for this Castor Oil to arrive in the mail, apparently it is unrefined and is more effective. I’ll probably switch over to it once I get it.
Just a warning – if you’re interested in trying this – do so at your own risk. From what I’ve read, Castor Oil is used in MANY common products – BUT the eye area is sensitive, so make sure to test carefully before attempting this treatment. I’ve already used this for 3 nights – and so far, so good – but I’m careful to make sure my hands are clean and that I use only a small amount. (Further update – I’ve found the best results using Organic Castor Oil – this is the type I’m currently using) I dip a fresh cotton swab into the oil each night and apply over my lashes and lid.
