I've recently started using castor oil to grow out my eyelashes, and it's been about 4 days and I've noticed my eyelashes fall out, is castor oil bad?

Neutral: This will absolutely not help with eyelash growth (where did you read this?). Poorly purified castor oil may contain toxins that could be dangerous to your lashes and health as well. Try another means to grow out lashes.

What's better for eyelash growth, coconut oil or castor oil?

Neither: Certain oils or petroleum ointment applied to base of lashes will smother the microscopic mites called demodex which live in the hair follicles. Overgrowth of demodex can cause lashes to fall out prematurely. The only fda approved way to stimulate eyelash growth is to use a prescription medication called bimatoprost (latisse) or similar medications available as eyedrops for glaucoma treatment.

I started castor oil for eyelash growth and now my lashing is itching and they're falling out. How to I remedy this?

Amazing: Why in the world would you think this would do anything about eyelashes? Are you drinking it or putting it on your eyelids? THROW AWAY THE CASTOR OIL. Stop wasting your time on the internet and see a dermatologist immediately. Meanwhile use cool water to gently bathe your eyelids and rinse off the offending oil.

Ever since I started to put castor oil on my eyelashes, they stoped falling and became thicker but will it hurts my eyes if it gets in them?

Castor oil: That is an unusual treatment. Castor oil should not damage eyes, but one can rinse the eyes if the oil gets in them.

Is it true that using castor oil for my eyelashes to become longer can be harmful for my eyelid causing sag eyelid?

NO: No. I found no information that castor oil causes eyelid sag. For best results, see a facial plastic surgeon for concern about eyelid aging or sagging.

Hi I put castor oil and coconut oil mix on to my eyelashes, some of it got into my eyes now they are hurting. What should I do?

Hi I put castor oil and coconut oil mix on to my eyelashes, some of it got into my eyes now they are hurting. What should I do?

Not dangerous: It can be helpful to rinse your eyes with tap water at room temperature by splashing water flowing from the tap into open eyes. Natural tearing will also wash the products out eventually, and really this shouldn't take more than few minutes to happen. My guess is that by the time you read this, you'll already feel better. Don't wipe the surface of your eye with any object, or you can do harm.

Probably: Probably not harmly, but will not help the eyelashes grow. It may stop up the surround oil glands which can lead to cystic formation along the eye lid margins.

Hair loss: Can't tell based on the very limited information you provided but I would start by suggesting you stop putting "castor oil" on your brows and scalp the reason for which remains a mystery.
