Long, thick eyelashes are what women want! Many women go to great lengths for their eyelashes. Unfortunately, many treatments like eyelash extensions and different growth serums might cause allergic reactions, infections or other problems. The overuse of eye products, especially long-lasting mascaras or fake lashes can also weaken lashes and even lead to lash loss. Of course, there is a genetic aspect to long eyelashes, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t try to increase eyelash length. Personally, I’ve only used mascara – but lately I have been experimenting with something a bit more natural.
Certain oils, due to their consistency and ingredients can help enormously with the growing obsession over full eyelash and eyebrows.
“Beauty gurus everywhere have been trying every lash-enhancing product and trick in the book and the verdict is in: natural oils work”!
Natural oils not only work and do ‘magic’ but they are gentle on sensitive skin and are also non-toxic when purchased in their purest form. They are filled with vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and all of the essential ingredients needed for best hair nutrition such as B vitamins, vitamin C, zinc, vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
Below you will find a short list with the best oils which are sure to have the fastest results for a “dramatic” look. And remember, just like everything else, to see results you need to be persistent and meticulous since the application needs to last for some time and must be applied every evening.
CASTOR OIL – This oil is packed with the most beneficial vitamin (Vit. E) and minerals that will most definitely thicken and lengthen your natural eyelashes. Make sure you apply it carefully before bedtime for shinier, fuller and longer eyelashes.
COCONUT OIL – Coconut oil is a great source of healthy fats. This nourishing oil has been used for centuries in hair deep-conditioning hair treatments and it can do wonders for your eyelashes resulting in longer, more voluminous ones that do not break or fall out as easily. It is ideal if you mix it together with castor oil!
Castor & Coconut Oil – Lash for strength
1 teaspoon Castor oil,
1 teaspoon Coconut oil,
Empty container and mascara wand
Add the 2 oils into the container and mix well by shaking. Apply the solution oil on your lashes before going to bed.
ALMOND OIL – Almond oil is filled with numerous essential nutrients and vitamins that are needed for hair follicles to continue growing and remain strong. These include calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, and fatty acids. When you apply this oil systematically there will be a visible increase in lustre and shine and in a few weeks there will be a significant increase in length and thickness.
Almond oil also helps the lashes look smoother and remain strong. In time this strength will promote additional growth and it can even extend the lifecycle of the lash itself.
AVOCADO OIL – This oil is full of protein, fatty acids, vitamins A, D, E, B, magnesium, copper, iron and folic acid and it is probably the most useful vegetable oil in cosmetics, especially for hair. What it does is strengthen the structure of the eyelash hair and acts as an excellent hydrate with long-lasting effect.
