So, I went through this stage where I always plucked my brows. Worst mistake ever! I was walking around with caterpillar eyebrows, literally, I’m not exaggerating. I didn’t pluck to shape them I plucked them so they wouldn’t be thick. Crazy right? I know, but back in the day thick brows were really not in honestly. So that’s when I ran into this golden beauty liquid Castor Oil. What I found out about Castor Oil is not only can you use it for medicine or a laxative but it also, relieves muscle soreness, soothes joint pains, treats fungal infections but this amazing oil, helps with hair growth, hair color, skin moisturizing and lastly, it could be used as a homemade mascara! Most people use it to promote hair growth and help with wrinkles. Some of you may have heard about this, or use it already.
Now, we all wonder WHY this oil is so great for all these things.. Let me explain. The Castor Oil is extracted from the seeds of Ricinus Communis, which is the Castor bean. The oil is made from ripe seeds that have an outer shell (Hull) that’s poisonous (Ricin). This oil is rich in Vitamin E, Omega 3, ricinoleic acid, and 9 fatty acids. Fatty Acids doesn’t sound very healthy, but it does provide nutrients to help develop and maintain your body’s cells. The ricinoleic acid is the major component of the seed oil. I have not tried this but sources say, a spoonful of Castor Oil is extremely healthy for you. It’s all natural and that’s what our body and skin needs. I apply castor oil on my brows and eyelashes consistently every night before bed till this day. When I started this, I did it for two weeks, and I’ve noticed the result! Lets just say it changed my life, coming from caterpillar eyebrows too thick beautiful brows that look healthy.. Like pinch me. I won’t go a night without putting Castor Oil on. I usually apply it underneath my eyes as well, and my brows, eyelashes, and hair.
I apply it underneath my eyes because i’m terrified of wrinkles and looking old so yes, I know I’m still young but if you take care of your skin now you won’t have to deal with it later, so hopefully this is will prevent the wrinkles in the future. Another tip is to use it on your hair with a mixture of olive oil now, olive oil is a big help because the fatty acids that are in Olive Oil will coat the shaft of your hair helping to keep it healthy and protected. There are many different kinds of Olive Oil, but you want the best one, so it should be in a glass bottle, it should say Extra Virgin and it should have a USDA organic seal.
Apply the Olive oil and the Castor Oil together only on the roots, because it is very thick even when you put the olive oil in it, so pouring it all over your head is not a good idea because when you go to wash it; it’ll be hard to rinse out. I keep it on overnight, I wrap my hair in a T-Shirt, and sleep with the oils in it.
The next day wash it dry with shampoo before cleansing and then your hair is extremely soft! Castor Oil is amazing I do recommend it for hair growth and skin, and anything else!
