Who doesn’t want the thickest fringe of lashes possible? However, if you don’t feel all that comfortable putting on mascaras with growth-enhancing chemicals or other eye products to stimulate lash growth, then you are not alone. I avoid those types of eye products. Yet, I still desperately envied women with those lush, really long lashes. So I kept reading and experimenting with home remedies until I found this to use castor oil to grow longer lashes.
Although there is no scientific evidence behind this home remedy that I am going to share with you, I have been using castor oil on my eye lashes and am liking what I am seeing. My lashes are more lush, longer than before and possess a nice luster about them. I believe a possible explanation for how it is stimulating the lashes is due to its high levels of omega-9 and omega-6 fatty acids, in particular ricinoleic acid and vitamin E.
Avoid doing this treatment more than once a day. Overdoing the use of castor oil to grow longer lashes could cause them to become brittle. Also, be careful on how much castor oil you get on your swab. After all, you don’t want to get any of this oil in your eye in the process.
Don’t stick your swab back into the bottle once it touches your lashes or you will contaminate the oil. Use a fresh swab if you need more to do your other eye.
Regardless of how you go about applying this castor oil to grow longer lashes, I do think it has been helping. My lashes do look like they are filling in somewhat. Maybe it is just wishful thinking, but this stuff has been also conditioning them because they are, indeed, glossier. Try it yourself because I think you will be pleased.
Something else that you need to try is this makeup trick to thicken sparse lashes. Once you experiment with that technique, your lashes will also benefit.
