Is It Possible to Grow Your Eyebrows Thicker With Castor Oil?

Your eyebrows frame your face, so they're an important part of your look. If your brows are a bit too thin, they can distract people from admiring the rest of your features. Chemical hair-growth treatments help fill out sparse eyebrows, but you might feel reluctant to slather the stuff on your skin. Instead, try giving your brows volume with a few drops of castor oil. Castor oil's benefits come from ricinoleic acid, also known as omega-9 fatty acid. This acid works its magic by stimulating eyebrow growth and nourishing your hair follicles.

Step 1

Wash your face and eyebrow area with warm water and cleanser. Pat your face dry with a towel.

Step 2

Dip a cotton swab or thin-tipped makeup brush into a container of castor oil. Shake off any excess oil.

Step 3

Brush a drop or two of oil on each eyebrow. Rub the oil in well with the brush or cotton swab.

Step 4

Massage a drop of glycerin into each eyebrow, if desired. Glycerin may boost the effectiveness of this remedy.

Step 5

Repeat this process nightly before you go to bed. You should see results within six weeks.
