    Beauty Secrets Revealed says:

    Yes, I did and it really worked for me. It definitely works for all.There’s nothing to worry about.

  6. 6

    Thanks for replying but I have a few more questions:
    1.How short did you cut you lashes? long did they take to grow back?
    3.Did you apply castor while they were growing back?
    Thanks πŸ™‚

    Hi Mehia,
    You can cut one fourth of it. I saw the result in 15 days time. And yes, I applied castor oil for around 2 months.

  8. 8

    Sorry to keep bothering did you do the bottom lashes as well?

  9. 9
    Beauty Secrets Revealed says:

    I din trim the bottom lashes but I applied castor oil.

  10. 10

    Hi, Can u explain the exact procedure to apply the oil? The oil entered my eyes, and it was horrible.

  11. 11

    You just have to apply it on your eyelashes just like you apply Mascara. If you have unused mascara brush its great otherwise u can apply it the same way with ur fingers.

    There’s nothing wrong if it enters your eyes. You’ll have a burning sensation for a while but its not harmful. But its better you don let it enter.

  12. 12

    are you sure trimming the eyelashes will work?? I thought it was just an old wives tale!!! what if it doesn’t grow back?? I have really short lashes, and I’m afraid that if I trim it it’ll just be even shorter. =x

  13. 13

    Hi Rae,

    Ya it really works. But make sure you cut only one fourth(just the tip) of it otherwise it will look odd. It will grow back in less than a month, for me it took fifteen days to see a visible result.

    have heard that if u apply something oily to ur eyes the eyes develop seye…….has anybody faced this problem?????

  15. 15

    You mean Stye? No, this recipe is completely safe and moreover stye is caused because of hormonal changes, irritating ingredients in eyeliner, mascara and eye infections.

    Dont use Castor oil. today my mom told me to use it and she said that maybe it will work. I out it on for less then 2 hours and when i took it off 3 of my eye lashes fell off. >_> i was pissed. u should use vaseline though. ive been using it for a year or so and my eyelashes are really long and thick.

    Castor Oil has been used in Ayurveda for more than 5000 years and its one of the precious Egyptian Medicines for eyes. I have been using castor oil for a long time and haven’t had any problem. People who have followed this recipe have had a wonderful result.
    Make sure you use pure castor oil(its pale yellow in color).

    Hi…i cut my lashes three weeks ago and started using castor oil…and today…i start to see the improvement..
    Thank You Verry Much for the tip.

    Hi! I have just cut my eyelashes (well, yesterday), and I have bought castor oil as well. Is it the same… everywhere? I mean, is it the cathartic pharmacy-bottled oil?

    And, I’ve read all the comments – and when they say “see the improvement” – does it mean that they grow back to the length they were before? Or does it mean that they grow longer than the ones you had?

    …I’m just a little concerned, because I’m kind of wanting to have eyelashes of a visible length by the time school starts.

    You think it’s possible?

    And how do you apply the castor oil? Just as mascara..? Is it okay to have some on the eyelid? I wouldn’t want my eyes fully covered in hair..

    And also, can you “overdose” with that? I mean, what if I use the oil more often than just leaving it overnight? Will it speed up the results, or.. will it leave my eyes completely bald?

    My appologies for being a pain in the…head, I hope you’ll answer at least a part of my questions.

  20. 20

    It can be bought at a pharmacy store, organic store or online. As long as it says pure castor oil you can use it.

    Your eyelashes will get thicker and longer than the ones you had before. You can either apply it with the help of a mascara brush(you can buy empty mascara bottle with brush at for around $2)or your fingers.

    There’s nothing like overdose when it comes to applying castor oil. There’s absolutely no problem if you apply it on your eyelids, in fact, castor oil can be used to erase crow’s feet.

    Hope it helps:)

  21. 21

    erm .. juz wanna ask a question ..
    when u use olive oil instead of castor oil does it still have the same effect ? coz in my country castor oil is not easily found …

  22. 22

    Yes, Olive Oil works but it just takes a little longer.

  23. 23
    angel_luv_a4a says:

    I’ve tried it. Oil is better than vaseline, simply coz it’s less sticky. And cutting does help. But don’t cut much. Just a bit of the tip.

  24. 24

    I also have the same method and got good result I already know about the method but i really works if you have any question you can mail me

  25. 25

    how do u trim ur own lashes isnt that dangerous??

  26. 26

    No its not dangerous, you, can trim it with scissors, just the tip(one fourth) of it.

  27. 27
    sad they're gone says:

    hiya. I trimmed my lashes yesterday but i think i trimmed a bit too much off. I’m really really upset and scared now because before they were actually quite long and feminine but now they look so stupid! will they grow back?
    and should i use olive oil or vaseline? i want them to grow back quicker so which is more useful?

  28. 28

    Hey thats absolutely fine. Don’t worry, it will grow back. Mix olive and castor oil and apply.

  29. 29
    sad they're gone says:

    sorry to bother but I don’t have castor oil. so should i mix vaseline and olive oil or just use one of them. How long till I see results? are you sure they will grow back? πŸ™

  30. 30

    No problem, you can ask me any doubt you have.

    Do you have sweet almond oil? Sweet Almond oil also works well but if you don’t have any of these oils then use Vaseline. Personally I have never tried vaseline but I know people who use it with great success.

    Hope it helps:)

  31. 31
    sad they're gone says:

    ok so i’ll use olive oil and vaseline πŸ™‚ are you sure this will work? I’m really upset about my eyelashes because they were never short or anything like that at the beginning.
    How many days till I see results? or weeks? please reply as soon as possible and thank you πŸ™‚

  32. 32

    If you just trim one fourth then it takes around fifteen days to see fuller and thicker eyelashes. Use mascara when you go out and use one of these recipes before going to bed. It should be ok.

  33. 33
    sad they're gone says:

    thanks alot. I really hope they won’t stay short forever after the trim. I cut a little less than a half but not exactly a quarter but it still looks stupid atm. But i’ll post my results in 2 weeks. πŸ™‚ and do you apply olive oil before bed or throughout the day?
    thank you x

  34. 34

    You are welcome:)

    You can apply Olive Oil just before going to bed.

    Lemme know the result.

    soheun128 says:

    so these are the oils i’ve got in my house. olive oil and canola oil. i don’t have castor. will canola work?

  36. 36

    Yes, Canola oil s a very good substitute.

  37. 37
    sad they're gone says:

    it’s been 2 weeks and I don’t see really any difference πŸ™
    my lovely lashes are gone forever :'(

  38. 38

    Hey its very strange that it hasn’t grown back. It normally starts to grow within a week’s time, what did u apply?

  39. 39

    hey i have canola oil and i know you said that that will work well too but do i still have to cut my eyelashes?

  40. 40

    Trimming is not necessary but it makes the growth process faster. Yes, Canola oil works.

  41. 41

    It really works. Thanks Leon.I trimmed my lower eyelashes and applied Castor oil. Haven’t been very regular but in about a month my lashes are much longer and thicker..

  42. 42

    Glad to hear that:)

  43. 43

    i’ve trimmed my eyelashes before just a little like so little u cnt see nd they grew longer
    now i wanna trim it gain but im scared that it wnt work the second time
    nd i want long eyelashes
    but in a natural way
    nd plz answer my question
    if u put chapstick on ur eyelashes is dat the same thing as vazelineee?

  44. 44

    No, you don’t have to trim it again, trimming once is fine and no you can’t use chapstick as it contains artificial colors and fragrance which will irritate your eyes.

  45. 45

    I didn’t trim my eyelashes down (scared me)& I used Olive Oil & WOW my lashed have got longer & thicker! I really didn’t think it would work. I saw my lashes on the bottom first get the intial wow-factor then noticed the top. Now I will try alternating the Castor Oil & the Olive Oil to see if it helps even more.I will keep you posted!

  46. 47
    Sukidoll says:

    Would it be okay to apply the oils onto the lashes before bed and in the morning? Wearing it almost 24/7? I’ll be home most of the time now and I don’t usually put on my makeup at home.

  47. 48

    Hi Sukidoll, yes if you are at home all the time you can use it.

  48. 49

    hello! I came across this article and I really wanna try out the vaseline since I don’t have olive or castor or any other oil listed here at hand. And I wanna know how long it actually takes if I use vaseline… Can anybody tell me? thank you!!! πŸ˜€

  49. 50

  50. 51

    hi leon.
    i tried coconut oil n it worked. thanx

  51. 52

    I read in a herbal book that if you use castor oil on you eye brows. That it would help them look thicker and fuller. Is this true? Or do you know of any herbs or oils that make your brows look a little thicker?

  52. 53

    Hi Angel, You can use castor oil, it helps.

  53. 54

    Im gonna try, trimmed a bit and goin to apply olive oil. Ill be back in a few weeks…Lets hope it will work! I almost dont have lower lashes and my lashes are really really thin on the sides (only full in the middle of the eyes)
