First of all, let me say that I love, love, love your site!! So informative and educational. I've been looking for posts in reference to loss of eyelashes and cannot seem to find any. I'm 39 yrs old and have been consistantly losing eyelashes since my teens. I've not been able to wear any make up, eyeliners, mascaras ect.. And up till recently, they've always grown back albeit sparsly. Now though, they've plateaued and I fear they will not regrow at all. I am constantly having problems w/ itching and tearing. My doctor had advised baby shampoo, but hasn't given me any relief in all this time. I am at a loss, (literally, lol) as I would love to frame my peepers. I get sand, debris in my eyes constantly and it is painful. Always puffy and red. PLEASE help if at all possible!

I heard that Castor oil works for making your eyelashes longer and thicker. I was a little skeptical but I tried it and I couldn't believe it as I could see individual eyelashes getting longer and longer! My eyelashes have never been this long and I've only been treating it for a month. Definitely don't need to waste my money on fake eyelashes!

I have been using Black Castor oil for eyelash growth for 3 weeks and the results are amazing. I've since been researching. Many oils, lavender, oregano, tea tree, eucalyptus, one drop each, can be added to regular eye makup remover to deter and eliminate eyelash mites when used twice daily. I'm going to try this. I'm hypo-thyroid and since this condition started my eyelashes have thinned a great deal. For years I tried vaseline, almond, coconut, regular castor which didn't realy help. The black castor has sprouted many many new baby eyelashes.
My eyelashes are like pretty short and i'd decided to make it even longer naturally. So, I applied castor oil at my eyelids and lashes. After a week , I realized that my lashes do grew longer and longer week by week. I am extremely happy with the results. Castor oil is the best. It not only made my eyelashes grew longer but also prevented them from falling off, making my lashes stronger and firmer.
Weighing in with another "YEA" for castor oil and eyelash growth.I have been doing this for 3 weeks. I can see my eyelashes now! I have high hopes to be able to use an eyelasher curler soon. I am applying nightly with a cotton swab with a technique like brushing on mascara then any excess goes on the eyebrows as well.
Castor oil really works on achieving longer eyelashes! I noticed my eyelashes were looking sparse and blah and bought castor oil from a health food market and applied it in the evenings with the tips of my fingers. Rub gently on the eyelids and on the eyelashes and you will notice the difference between 2-3 weeks. Safer and better than buying the lash growth mascaras.
Castor oil will not harm your eyes. I frequently massage my eyelashes and the edge of my eyelids with castor oil (the regular non-cold pressed kind at the moment) and it doesn't even make my eyes blurry and doesn't burn at all. since I have been doing this it also seems to have helped my vision and my eyes aren't red as often.
