Even perfect eye makeup can be ruined by an ugly brow line. Therefore, everyone knows that well-groomed women are distinguished not only by good skin, proper makeup, but also by beautiful thick eyebrows. One of the main eyebrow care products is castor oil. This unique oil finds its application in cosmetics for hair and facial skin, and is also a good remedy for eyebrows.
Castor oil for eyebrows: impact
Castor oil acts on the hair in several directions at once:
- Hair growth acceleration. Castor oil for eyebrow growth was also used by our grandmothers, since natural oil is an excellent source of nutrition and hydration.
- Restoration of the density of the eyebrows. It is known that sometimes after regular plucking, eyebrows stop growing. Castor oil restores the functions of regeneration and renewal of skin cells, which leads to the formation of new hairs and their active growth.
- Great nourishment for eyebrow hairs is due to ricinoleic acid, which makes up almost 90% of castor oil.
Castor oil can be combined with any vitamins and other oils. A particularly good effect is the addition of drops of vitamin A.
For coarse hairs, castor oil mixed with olive oil is ideal. This recipe will help to make the eyebrows soft and obedient.
Castor oil for the growth of eyebrows and eyelashes is stored no more than 24 months from the date of manufacture, and not the date of opening the jar. Therefore, when choosing an oil in a pharmacy, pay attention to the expiration date and remember that expired oil does not bring any benefit, but only clogs pores. In addition, castor oil should not be used during pregnancy, as warned in the instructions.
Castor oil for eyebrows: application
Despite the excellent nutritional properties of the oil, the effect of its use will not be immediately visible. It takes at least a couple of months to notice the effect, and a tangible result appears after six months of using castor oil. Such terms are connected with the fact that the effect is achieved by a cumulative and therapeutic, and not just a cosmetic effect. Castor oil is known as a nourishing oil for eyebrows and eyelashes, but it works only with regular use.
Application of castor oil
How to apply castor oil:
- Choose a brow brush that you use to apply only castor oil. An old mascara brush will do (naturally, perfectly washed);
- it is best to apply the oil before going to bed so that it is on the eyebrows all night;
- the oil is applied with a brush, first against the growth of hairs, then along the growth of the eyebrows;
- for the oil to work, you need to leave it on the hairs all night;
- Wash off the castor oil with your regular cleanser in the morning.
If plans do not allow for the procedure at night, you should not refuse it at all. In the restoration of eyebrows with castor oil, regularity is important. It is better to use the oil and leave it on the eyebrows for at least half an hour, and then wash it off than to skip the procedure altogether.
In addition, it is advised to use the oil in combination with a light eyebrow massage and on the skin steamed after a shower. Not worth it disregard this advice:
- Light massage warms the skin, promoting faster penetration of the oil;
- During the massage, blood circulation is restored in the areas of the skin around the eyebrows and eyes, which prevents the appearance of wrinkles;
- Steamed skin absorbs nutrients more easily and faster, since the skin pores are “opened”.
Massage advice is especially important when doing a quick version of the oil application, in which it is especially important to make every effort to maximize the effect of the oil.
