How to Make your Eyelashes Grow

Want to know how to make your eyelashes grow? It’s rare for your eyelashes to have any issues with hair loss like your hair does. But if you’re female then there’s a good chance you want big eyelashes to complete your beauty regime. There’s a multi-million dollar industry built on making your eyelashes look longer. There are mascaras that add a sticky, black substance; there are fake eyelashes.

But you don’t need to use these products as there are natural, cheap ways that you can grow your eyelashes. You don’t need chemicals, you don’t need to spend a fortune and you can still see some results. They might not be as instant as the results you would see from mascara or fake eyelashes, but it’s a look that is much more natural, and that’s where the best beauty lies.

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow: The Basics

Before we list some supplements and substances that can show you how to make your eyelashes grow, there are a few basics that need to be considered. All of these can help you just as much as some of the ones listed below and they can also serve as great preparations.

One of the things that often gets overlooked is simple grooming. The reason mascara works so well isn’t necessarily all down to the substance that coats your eyelashes, but rather it’s the brush itself. Your eyelashes have a way of sticking together and they can also clump with bits of dead skin and other detritus. All of this makes your eyelashes look shorter than they actually are.

To remedy this, you just need to take a clean mascara brush which you run through your eyelashes a few times everyday. In fact, as you will discover, these brushes come in handy for more than just mascara and you should look to have a few of them on hand so you can use the substances below, while also keeping one clean for regular pruning. If you do this then not only will your eyelashes look longer immediately, but you’ll also help to clear the way so they can grow more.

You also want to clean then to get the same benefits. Just wet a cloth and dab it over your eyelashes. Do it gently and do it before you use the dry mascara brush.

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow: The Vitamins

The next step is to make sure that you get a steady supply of essential vitamins and minerals, as well as plenty of protein and amino acids. These are the building blocks of the cells in your body, whereas vitamins like Biotin and Niacin are used in the hair growing process. So, the more you have, the easier that process will be.

What’s more, a lack of certain vitamins can cause hair loss and hair damage and that applies as much to your head as it does to your eyelashes.

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow: The Oils

One of the best substances out there for growing eyelashes is castor oil. We have discussed this oil a lot here on Hair Growth Pills. It can help with all kinds of hair growth and it can also condition your skin. Castor oil works because it helps to kill bacteria that sits on you skin and inhibits hair growth.

That’s not all. Castor oil also contains Vitamin E, which is great for your skin and can also nourish your hair follicles. By applying castor oil to your eyelashes you are helping to rid those follicles of bacteria, while also supporting hair growth and keeping your skin in the best condition possible.

The same can be said for olive oil, coconut oil and even argan oil. They all work in a similar way, protecting your skin, supporting your follicles and ensuring that your hair grows long and strong.

These oils should be mixed with something else before you apply them. The best way to use these oils is to mix them with aloe vera gel. You want a consistency that is sticky, much like mascara. That’s because you need to apply them like you would apply mascara. Just create your concoction, dip your brush in and then apply. You will need to leave this concoction in your eyelashes overnight, before washing it out in the morning.

That’s way it’s important not to use directly, as the oil would drip otherwise and you don’t want this in your eyes. You can also just use a smaller amount, leave it in for a short time and then wash it out. But this is not going to have the same effect. Also, the aloe vera gel can soothe your skin and negate any irritation caused by the oils.

Tips to Make your Eyelashes Grow

It’s not just oils that you can use to create homemade concoctions. We have discussed some remedies that you can use in our DIY Eyelash Growth article. But there are many more ingredients that you can benefit from, either on their own or when combined with something else. In all cases you need to add them to a mascara brush and then leave in over night.

  • Lemon Peel: You can combine lemon peel with olive oil or argan oil. You can also use castor oil, but we find that olive oil works best with lemon peel, while castor oil is better suited for use with aloe vera gel. Just add the peel of a lemon to a jar, cover it with olive oil and then leave it to sit. The oil will become infused with the lemon peel, leeching all of that vitamin C.
  • Fruit Extracts: Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals and they can work wonders for your skin and your hair. That’s why you will find extracts of blueberry and other berries in many hair growth products; it’s why lemon peel works so well. You will need fruit extracts as opposed to actual fruits. The concentrated form means you’re getting a bigger hit of vitamins and minerals.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: If thousands of nutritionists are to be believed this substance can cure everything and can help with everything. We’re not quite sure about that, but it certainly has its uses.
