I am all about big hair and bigger lashes. Long eyelashes open up the eyes and just wake the whole face up. I didn’t consider wearing false eyelashes because I’m not sure if they are permissible in Islam. Moreover, the glue in false eyelashes does more damage to the real eyelashes when you take it off by pulling the real lashes or breaking them.
There’s something about being naturally beautiful. So, I decided to check out ‘natural eyelash growth’ online. Castor oil for eyelashes was recommended by everyone. Everybody is raving about Castor oil and how it makes the eyelashes grow longer and thicker.
Castor oil benefits for eyelashes
So, I decided to buy some Castor oil and use it. It’s been 3 weeks now and I honestly can say I love the results. Just in 3 weeks, my lashes are reaching my eyebrows. 😀 I wanted to include before and after pictures of my eyelashes but unfortunately my camera isn’t any good and I don’t have any other cam with me right now.
Let me add that everyone may not see the same results, as hair growth also depends on genes and heredity. What Castor oil can do with regular use is to make the lashes stronger and healthier. Especially, if you wear mascara a lot, your lashes are bound to break/fall. So using castor oil regularly will definitely make them stronger, longer, and more beautiful altogether.
I apply this oil every night (sometimes in the morning as well) using an ear-bud, I apply it like eyeliner on my upper and lower lid and then I will also coat my upper and lower lashes with it.
Castor Oil is thick in consistency, so don’t worry about oil dripping down your face. This oil gets absorbed into the hair really fast and that is what makes it so special for eyelashes.
Results of using castor oil
Before I started using Castor oil my eyelashes were scarce and barely visible without mascara. Now, they are longer and more visible. It looks like I’m wearing mascara when I’m not wearing any. I noticed a lot of growth in my lower lashes too, tiny little hair coming up. I really love it. Castor Oil is definitely worth giving a try if you love big lashes and hate using mascara every day.
