What Makes Castor Oil Good For Eyelash Growth?

Castor oil is rich in vitamin E and other proteins and minerals. It also has antifungal and anti-bacterial properties which help in the growth and strengthening of hair follicles with regular use.

How To Use Castor Oil For Eyelashes?

After knowing about the wondrous effects of castor oil, it becomes important to know how one should use it for getting the perfect eyelashes. But, prior to that, one must know how to pick the perfect castor oil from the market. It is crucial that only cold-pressed or cold-processed castor oil is used as these are pure and natural. The markets also provide industrial castor oil which is quite different from the natural castor oil and is not recommended at all.

Castor oil is best used in the night time before sleeping. In order to get the maximum out of it, follow these two simple steps:

  1. Firstly, wash your face and eyes well with normal water and then pad-dry with a towel.
  2. Then, take some castor oil on a clean mascara brush (make sure to tap-off the extra drops) and apply it on the eyelashes starting from the inner edge of the eye.

It is important that the oil reaches the roots of the eyelashes, hence apply with utmost care and precision. Repeat the process for the other eye as well.

If there is any oil spreading under the eye area, clean it using a Q-tip. The next morning clean your eyelashes well. This is important because if the oil gets left on your eyelashes, it would make your eye-make up bleed (and you certainly wouldn’t like that!). Make sure you do this every night.

Other Castor Oil Application Methods:

1. With Glycerin And Egg White Mixture:

The mixture of glycerin and egg whites (just about two drops) can be combined with castor oil for application on the eyelashes. This mixture can help your eyelashes become thick, strong and long at the same time as egg whites are known for their high protein content and the impact that they have on hair growth.
