If your eyebrows resist growth no matter now many lotions and potions you apply, you’re not alone.

Not all of us are blessed with thick brows of the Cara Delevingne variety and even if they were thick and full once upon a time, we most of us became tweexer happy at one point.

However, there’s one thing you may not have tried and that’s castor oil.

It was recommended to me by my go-to brow gal who said that she has witnessed major transformations thanks to the daily application of this unassuming oil (pro tip, keep it by your bed so you remember to apply every morning/night).

All you have to do is dip a cotton bud in castor oil, apply to your brows, massage in and leave for at least 30 minutes (and where possible overnight, giving it more time to absorb).

With regular application, the castor oil stimulates hair growth, eventually resulting in thicker, fuller eyebrows.

If you’re still not convinced about the power of castor oil when it comes to brow perfection, have a look at the below tweets, where people are positively raving about the benefits of the vegetable oil.
