Eyebrows are the frame of the face and the one feature I feel like I can control but somehow cannot achieve that well desired happy medium. There are endless articles and rave review about the benefits of Castor oil and its magical effect on hair growth. Armed with a 8ml of product and 3 weeks of patience I proceed with religious application.
Organic Castor oil is often described as effective remedy for eyebrow regrowth, but also can be used for thickening hair and eyelashes. It has tick, kind of sticky consistency and almost translucent color. Initially for this blog post I was planning to take before and after pictures of my eyebrows. Well that did not happen simply because the results were not as miraculous as expected. I used it twice a day, on most days for about 3 weeks,as instructed by the packaging. My application technique was a bit careless, generously lather it all over the full length of by brows and small bit into the upper eyelid aria. After application, this oil takes a bit of time to soak in so I normally apply it before I go to bed or first thing in the morning. After a week I did experience a faster than usual regrowth, but the most important bold/sparse patches were still unaffected. Week two things slow down and I noticed very little difference. In week three the slow improvement continued. Overall I did experience increased hair growth but nothing drastic or life changing. My sparse patches proved to be quire stubborn so there was very limited overall improvement. On the positive, now the shape of my eyebrows appear fuller and the actual hair definitely feels stronger and bit ticker.
Castor oil seems to work to some extend so make sure you manage your expectations. My natural thin eyebrows did benefit from faster regrowth bit not necessarily immediately or on the right places. I would say definitely give it a fry but be aware its a lengthy progress and improvement is slow.
