Question regarding oral castor oil:
I know it causes hypertrichosis which will go away once you stop taking oral castor oil, but how long does this take? And is absolutely certain you will keep head growth gains while simultaneously getting rid of excess body hair caused by it? I'm a trans woman, so body hair is definitely not something I want to deal with, but I'm willing to put up with it for a few months if it does indeed go away after you stop using castor oil and you keep your gains. I shouldn't have to worry about miniaturization after I stop using castor oil because my androgen levels are pretty low since I am on hormone therapy & finasateride
Both in theory and as per swisstemples' advice based on his experience, hair will only remain where the body normally supports hair growth. Once the stimulus (castor oil) is removed, there will be no endogenous factors to support its growth in stranger places such as below the eyes whereas any growth on the scalp should remain. While on castor oil though you can either ignore it or shave/pluck it. Hope that makes sense.
