Castor oil is amazing!

My eyebrows are very thin due to overplucking when I was a teenager and I had nearly given up hope of them ever growing despite trying for ages. I've been using castor oil for 5 days now and my eyebrows are growing in areas where I didn't realise there were hair follicles!

I can't recommend it enough. Got mine from Holland and Barrett

What in the world do you do with it to make your eyebrows grow and do you have before and after pics? ??

Please dont say you have to drink it.

I wish I'd taken before pics but I didn't realise it would work! You just rub it onto your eyebrows before bed and it honestly works. I read about it in a magazine but didn't really believe it. No drinking involved thankfully smile

Thanks. The lady who threaded my eyebrows yesterday recommended it to me too. She also told me not to rub it on my hands as I will start growing hairs on my fingers?! 🤔

Interesting, the scientist in me thinks how can this possibly work, although I would love it to as I have thin eyebrows. Does the oil just make the hair look thicker? If it did miraculously make hair grow it be more widely used as hair loss is a massive issues for millions of men and women throughout the world.

That's it this like the third thread on castor oil

Baa baaa I'm off out to buy some !

My eyebrows have been slowly slowly getting thicker but they need help !

I don't think it's just a case of the oil making them look thicker because I can actually see new hairs growing. I was sceptical but I'm really impressed!

It worked for me. Follicles that haven't sprouted a hair since the late 90s are now coming back to life. It isn't a speedy process though. Was probably a month before I noticed any new growth.

Surely the bit about not rubbing it into your hands is madness, though, because there are no hair follicles on your palms and hair needs a follicle to grow?

I found the same with coconut oil. Did bugger all for my face except make me spotty and smell of biscuits, but I've gone from a seventies teenager to Dennis Healey in a few weeks.

I used jamaican castor oil on thin areas on my daughters hairline. It definitely helped. I'll start using on myself too
