Today’s post is on how I get thicker, longer lashes overnight and naturally! I have seen countless products all over the internet claiming to make your lashes thicker and longer with ridiculous ingredients and even more ridiculous prices…and yes I fell victim to a few of those products…Lashem anyone?
I have been using this beauty hack for a long time to get thicker eyebrows due to the unfortunate hot “Thin brow” look of the 90’s lol! I over plucked my brows back then and found that the hairs never seemed to grow back. I began reading about Castor Oil , which is derived from the castor seed, and how it contains very high concentrations of a special fatty acid called ricinoleic acid. It has been used for centuries internally and externally for its many health benefits. It also contains Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, Vitamin E and other moisturizing minerals. I thought to myself “What the heck?” it’s super cheap and natural so I started to slather Castor Oil on my brows before I went to bed. I was literally AMAZED at how hair started growing back in one or two nights (I am not exaggerating guys). I found that I needed to pluck more often every time I used this phenomenal oil and decided to apply it nightly. After about a month of use, I noticed that my brows were remarkably thicker! I then began to apply it to my lashes and noticed almost immediate thickness overnight. Castor Oil is a Godsend for hair growth lol!
Before bed, I literally just use my finger to smooth a good amount of the oil over my brows and then rub some on the top of my lashes and lash line as well as underneath my lashes (like how you would apply mascara). Although you will see a difference overnight, this does require some commitment if you want to get the maximum benefit of the oil. I have made this a nightly routine and now it’s just habit before bed. The best way to see the difference in your lashes is if you put mascara on the day before you start…take a picture…then the following morning when you do your makeup, apply your mascara again and see the magic! It’s no joke!
The exact product I use is Home Health Cold Pressed Castor Oil which is only $12 for 32oz and literally has lasted me at least 2 years or even longer lol
Since we are on the topic of lashes, I will also share with you my FAVOURITE mascara…Too Faced Better Than Sex. This mascara combined with the castor oil application nightly is life changing. Let me know if you are going to try this awesome beauty hack!
Wishing you beautiful, lush brows and lashes always
