Castor Oil Is Great For Thickening And Regrowing Hair, Eyelashes And Eyebrows!
Full lashes and eyebrows are a part of the most prominent and popular beauty trends. Many women rely on thick mascara, false lashes and eyebrow pencil in order to achieve this look.
Some are even looking for a more permanent solution like eyelash extensions, eyebrow extensions, eyebrow transplant and eyebrow tattooing.
Fortunately, there’s also a natural alternative which will help you prevent the thinning of your eyebrows and hair! It’s very simple – castor oil!
What Is Castor Oil?
It’s vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor plant (Ricinus communis).
It’s high in omega-6 fatty acids and ricinoleic acid. It penetrates into follicles to thicken and strengthen your eyebrows and lashes. Actually, it’s also commonly used to prevent hair loss.
How Does It Work?
A study from 2000 found that ricinoleic acid contains “capsaicin-like” anti-inflammatory properties which help you soothe the irritated skin. Other oils contain a very small amount of this compound, but castor oil is made of even 90% of ricinoleic acid!
It can also treat some common skin conditions like dermatitis, acne and fungal or bacterial infection. This oil is also used to speed wound healing and face keloid scars.
It also contains vitamin E, minerals, proteins and omega-6 and omega-9. This oil is said to speed the hair growth by 3-5 times the normal rate with as little as 1-2 applications a week.
How To Use It?
Make sure you’re using a hexane free, organic and cold pressed castor oil, which you can find in healthy food stores, online or in specialized beauty shops.
Apply it every night on your eyebrows and lashes and then, rinse it with water and pat dry. This oil acts as a cleanser and moisturizer, so it’s not necessary to wash your face before applying it.
You should start seeing visible hair growth within a month of daily use and within 3 months you’ll enjoy in your lush lashes and eyebrows!
