How to Make Mustache Wax at Home

How to Make Mustache Wax at Home

How to Make Mustache Wax at Home

Want to know how to make mustache wax at home? Do you have questions regarding how to use this wax, how to style with it and want to include in order to improve the strength and the conditioning of your mustache hair? Well you have come to the right place.

Once you learned how to make mustache wax at home then you don’t need to buy the overpriced waxes increasingly being pushed to men of all ages by grooming brands the world over. These waxes, like all beauty products, are made using cheap and simple ingredients, before a fancy package and a huge price tag is added.

There’s no need for this. You can get the same quality, the same benefits and more without paying anything once you learn how to make mustache wax at home. So, let’s get to it and show you just how to do that.

How to Make Mustache Wax at Home

There are two simple ingredients that you can use to make mustache wax at home. One of these, coconut oil, we have discussed a lot already on this website. It is abundant, it is cheap, and it can work wonders on your skin and your hair follicles. Not only that, but it is great for mixing with other substances and for using in waxes, creams and other beauty products.

The second ingredient to make mustache wax at home is beeswax. This is where the consistency comes from, but it’s much more than that. Beeswax can help to protect your hair and it can make styling easy, giving you complete control over the shape of your mustache.

The main purpose of these products is to style. They can also help to create a protective layer for your skin and your hair. They don’t really provide much nourishment to your hair follicles, but that’s not the purpose of these products anyway. It’s all about getting the consistency right and doing so with products that are natural, skin-friendly and easy to get ahold of.

Once you do that then you can start adding additional ingredients to create something that is a little more of a premium product.

Other Mixes to Make Mustache Wax

How to Make Mustache Wax

To combine the two ingredients you just need to add 1 part of each and then gently melt them in a pan. Mix to combine, wait to cool and then you will have a wax. It is as simple as that. If you don’t have coconut oil or you just don’t want to use it, there are other oils that you can use. You really need to keep the beeswax, as it adds a thickness and a viscousness that is essential for the mixture. But you can experiment with the additions.

Soon we will show you how to make mustache wax at home using extra special ingredients in addition to oil and wax. But sticking with the base ingredients all of the following can be used in place of coconut oil. Just bear in mind that you might need to change the recipe a little. Coconut oil sets when it cools, but other oils don’t. So, the more of a liquid it is, the more beeswax you will need to add.

Aragon Oil

This is a great oil to help your hair and skin. That’s why you will find it in shampoo, styling products and more. Argan oil is potent and super healthy stuff. We’ve all been led to believe that it’s also a premium product, which is why you’ll find it being included in countless mustache waxes, gels and creams out there.

Just make sure you get the pure stuff. There are many mixes out there that brand themselves as “argan oil” formulas, but actually contain very small amounts of it. And remember that this is an oil that can be consumed, so you may be able to find it for less in a grocery store.

Olive Oil

Another food that can be consumed but it also considered a premium product, olive oil is a miracle substance. It can help you on the inside and the outside. It’s also very cheap. You will pay more for higher quality oils, of course, but when it comes to putting it on your skin those finer points concerning the taste don’t really matter. A simple extra virgin olive oil will do.

Castor Oil

There are many benefits to castor oil. It’s high in Vitamin E, which can provide many benefits to your skin and your hair follicles. It can also help to kill the bacteria that lies on your skin and inhibits hair growth. So, grow that mustache thicker and longer, while styling it at the same time.

How to Make Mustache Wax at Home: Adding More

Create Mustache Wax

If you want to go the extra mile and create something a little more premium, then you can. All of the following ingredients can be added to create a more nourishing and higher end product, one that more closely resembles the expensive mustache waxes that you can find:

  • Biotin, Vitamin E: There are a few benefits that can work wonders on your hair and your skin. You don’t need to use this in high doses, they are easy to come by and they are perfectly safe and harmless. Many vitamins will not work when applied to the skin, but you can use vitamin like Vitamin E, which most definitely do. Biotin may also help the process.
  • Essential Oils: There are many great essential oils that can be added without changing the consistency of the mustache wax. You just need a few drops and you can combine different ones. Sandalwood oil, lavender oil and sage oil are all great. You can find more on our Essential Oils for Hair Growth page. If you do use essential oils, make sure you don’t go overboard and be sure to mix the liquid well to get an even spread.
  • Extracts: You can use all kind of extracts to help the process. Everything from a lemon peel extract that you can create yourself to nettle extract that is used in many popular hair growth formulas. If it’s safe, it’s cheap and you don’t need a lot of it, then think about adding it to this mixture.
How to Grow a Mustache Fast

How to Grow a Mustache Fast

How to Grow a Mustache Fast

Want to know how to grow a mustache fast? Planning on joining what is a very elite club of handbag mustache owners? Then this is the guide for you.

On this page we will show you how to grow a mustache fast. There are many vitamins, supplements, medications and oil that you can use to increase the volume of your hair; to get rid of bald spots; and to generally create a cool and stylish mustache.

How to Grow a Thick Mustache

Growing a thick mustache is simply a case of growing more hair and making sure that the hair you have is well cared for. As discussed in our article on the hair growth cycle, all hair grows at the same rate and we all go through the same cycle. The problem is, some of us spend less time in the growth stage of this cycle than others. As a result, the hair doesn’t grow as long because it dies before it reaches the required length. This can slow the overall growth process down, meaning it takes a long time for anything to grow, while keeping everything thin and wiry when it does grow.

There are a few things that you need to do to stop this from happening. The first is to make sure that you keep your mustache hair healthy, protected, hydrated and nourished. Not only are you protecting the hair and stopping it from getting damaged, but you’re also nourishing the follicle and helping with growth. You also need to make sure you body has the required vitamins and minerals to help with the growth process.

Luckily, there are a few simple steps that you can take to help with this. It’s all about vitamin and oils, and if that still doesn’t work then throw some medications into the mix.

Vitamins for Mustache Growth

It’s best not to start buying loads of vitamins, shampoos and other mixtures and then trying to work these into your mustache. Instead, just make sure that your diet contains plenty of B Vitamins, Vitamin C and Vitamin D, as well as Zinc and Iron. Don’t go overboard. There isn’t even a need to take multi-vitamins. Just eat a healthy and balanced diet and you’ll be doing all you can to help your hair growth.

Oils for Mustache Growth

Oils for Mustache Growth

To learn how to grow a mustache fast then you need to get acquainted with oils. And we’re not talking about the hipster-branded oils you’ll find in premium subscription bottles and nestled away in the disproportionately small “men’s” section of beauty shops. These products are overpriced and often contain very small quantities of the oils that actually provide the benefits.

The idea is the same though: you use oils to protect and to lock in vitamins and nourishment. There are many oils that can help with this and they are all widely available, abundant and incredibly cheap. In fact, you might have a few of them in your home already:

Castor Oil: Products like Jamaican Black Castor Oil are perfect for nourishing you mustache. To learn how to grow a mustache fast you need to get to grips with castor oil. Buy a few bottles, apply it daily and leave it in for a few hours. It contains Vitamin E to help the skin and the hair follicles, and it can also kill bacteria that linger on your skin.

Olive Oil. You might be surprised to see this mentioned in an article title How to Grow a Mustache Fast, but it works as well for on stash as it does on your Caesar Salad. Maybe not as well as castor oil, but it’s still hugely beneficial and it’s even more common in our homes.

Argan Oil: A popular oil for shampoos and beard oils, argan oil is another great oil that can protect and nourish. It is also cheaper than you might think, just make sure you buy it in its purest form and avoid over-priced products that contain very small quantities of it.

Minoxidil for Mustache Growth

Minoxidil for Mustache Growth

Minoxidil works great for hair growth on your head, but it also works everywhere else. It works by stimulating hair follicles and helping them to grow, and that applies as much on your scalp as it does on your mustache and your beard. The speed of growth is the same, as is the rate of growth.

The fact that you are probably using it to speed up growth and not to grow hair where there was none should also mean that it works quicker. If you are using it for bald spots on your upper lip, however, then it will need several months to work, just like Minoxidil does when applied to your scalp.

How to Grow a Handlebar Mustache

Handlebar Mustache Growth

To grow a handlebar mustache you just need to follow the above steps to get a strong and healthy mustache in the first place, and then prune and shape it. You also need something to shape your mustache and to hold it into place. There are creams and gels on the market, but these are expensive and often filled with chemicals.

Instead, think about using a mixture made from aloe vera gel and castor oil. It will help to hold things in place, while also helping your skin, your follicles and your hair. You can use coconut oil for the same purpose. It provides a thicker, gel-like protection for the hair and allows you to shape it like you would with a regular mustache cream.

How Long Does it Take to Grow a Mustache?

A good mustache can take several months to develop. Typically, you will start seeing results in a few weeks. We all grow hair at the same rate and it doesn’t add up to very much, but because it’s such a small and visible place, it doesn’t take a great deal. Your mustache should become full within a few weeks, it should be thick and ready to shape within a couple months, and you can have your full handlebar mustache within 3 to 4 months.

If you are struggling to get results in that time then the above article on how to grow a mustache fast should be able to speed up the process. In fact, it might be able to shave as much as a month off the process, while making sure the end result is much better.

Understanding Traction Alopecia (Treatment, Cure, Regrowth)

Understanding Traction Alopecia (Treatment, Cure, Regrowth)

 

Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia is one of the many forms of hair loss and alopecia. It is one that can affect a great number of people and one that can do serious damage to their hair. But just what is traction alopecia, what are the cures (if any) and are there any ways you can limit your chances of getting it in the first place?

In this guide we will answer those questions, targeting the following frequently asked questions as well:

  • What is Traction Alopecia?
  • How to Treat Traction Alopecia?
  • Will It Last Forever?
  • How to Reverse Traction Alopecia?
  • How to Grow my Edges Back from Traction Alopecia?

If you have your own questions about this condition that are not listed above, they may still be covered below. If not, feel free to get in touch through our Contact Page. We are always look to advise and inform and these questions and answers are one of the ways in which we do that.

What is Traction Alopecia?

Traction alopecia is a form of hair loss that occurs through trauma, as opposed to anything happening within the cell or the body. It is the result of direct pressure applied to the hair, as opposed to the immune system response that is alopecia areata and the (potential) genetic cause of alopecia universalis.

Traction Alopecia Causes: Hairstyles

Traction Alopecia Causes

In most cases, traction alopecia occurs a direct result of something that the patient has done to their own hair. Therefore, preventing this condition is as simple as following proper haircare regimes and avoiding the use of tight hairstyles.

The most common hairstyle that causes traction alopecia is a tight ponytail. This is a hairstyle that many women have adopted since they were young. In some cases it is a hairstyle that was forced upon them by a parent; one that they have simply grown accustomed to. In other cases it is done because neat and tidy hair is considered to be better suited for the professional world or for playing sports.

Other hairstyles that can cause traction alopecia include braids, corn-rows and pigtails. It is also very common in women who wear weaves. In this case the hair is often pinned down in order to keep it out of sight. All of these styles apply constant pressure to the roots of the hair and that pressure, over time, can lead to follicle damage. The hair becomes weaker, it falls out, and the hair follicle suffers damage.

Traction Alopecia Causes: Headgear and Chemicals

If you use a lot of chemicals in your hair then you may also be putting yourself at risk for this condition. There is a related condition known as central cicatricial centrifugal alopecia that is very common in African American women who wear tight hairstyles and use a lot of chemicals such as dyes and relaxers. This combination causes serious traction alopecia and can present with more serious and considerably more visible signs that those that present following tight ponytails and pigtails.

There is also a risk in people who regularly wear tight-fitting headgear. Contrary to the old wives’ tale, your hair will not suffer greatly through a lack of the open air getting to it, so baseball caps and other hats are rarely a problem. However, helmets and other tight-fitting headgear are. They can rub the scalp and tug at the hair. If this happens over an extended period of time then symptoms of traction alopecia can present.

How to Stop Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia Cure

The good news is that you can still wear a ponytail while avoiding traction alopecia. The same goes for the other hairstyles that may trigger this condition. It is not the styles that are the issue, but the way they are applied. For instance, there is nothing innately wrong with a ponytail providing the hair is loose and not tight.

By putting your hair into a tight ponytail you may be limiting stray hairs and the chance of it coming undone. But you’re also putting your roots under a lot of stress and that’s what can lead to traction alopecia.

Traction Alopecia Symptoms

Small, localized hair loss is the main thing to look out for. This often occurs in the area of most pressure. Where ponytails are concerned, it might be the hairline. Because the hair loss is forced, the bald or balding region may also be red and sore, which means it is possible for it to be mistaken for a bacterial infection.

To make sure this is not the case, anyone who suspects that they have traction alopecia and is presenting with red/sore spots, should first consult with an expert.

Traction Alopecia Treatment

Prevention is the best cure in this case. Make sure you don’t wear tight headgear or hairstyles; keep the use of chemicals to a minimum. If you do this then you are eliminating the possibility of traction alopecia.

Traction Alopecia Cure

Of course, the above information is no good if you have already done the damage and the traction alopecia is already presenting with symptoms. If this is the case then there are a few things that you can do to help. There are no medications that can reverse traction alopecia, so things like Minoxidil will not likely work, but you should still dose on hair vitamins and natural oils in order to strengthen the hair and to nurture the damaged follicles.

The most effective cures for traction alopecia are localized hair transplants. These basically remove hair from one place (often the back of your head) and transplant it into the bald spot area. Because they take the full follicles and not just the hair, it will continue to sprout hair and grow as normal over time.

There are other treatments that may also be able to help, including the PRP hair loss treatment. However, it seems that hair transplants are the way to go.

Is Traction Alopecia Reversible?

Is Traction Alopecia Reversible?

If you stop doing damage to your hair, nurture the bald spot back into growth, then you should be okay. But you may have done serious damage to the hair follicles and it may take a very long time for them to heal and for hair to grow back. Still, it is unlikely that the damage done would last for a lifetime, unless you have another hair loss condition or unless you continue to do damage to your hair.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil for Traction Alopecia

One of the best oils out there for protecting and nourishing your hair to the root is Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Like all castor oil this is rich in Vitamin E and the oil itself can also protect and lock in moisture. It is by no means a magic cure. Nothing is. However, it should be able to help in some way and at the very least it will speed up the process of hair growth.

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Oils, Vitamins, Supplements and Shampoos

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Oils, Vitamins, Supplements and Shampoos

How to Grow Thicker Hair

Want to know how to grow thicker hair? Well, the answer might surprise you, and not for the reasons you would expect.

In this guide we will explain just why that is as we tell you how to grow thicker hair, focusing on techniques that are cheap, healthy, safe and natural, at least for the most part.

But before we get to that, we need to get a few things out of the way first. So, let’s step to it.

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Is it Possible

There are actually many ways that you can grow thicker hair. These include natural oils and natural vitamins. They also include medications, shampoos and other products. In most cases, these are completely safe and will not cause any side effects, but there are exceptions. It’s important to understand that you don’t need to put yourself in harm’s way just to grow thicker hair.

You could be doing more damage to your hair and you may even do more damage to the rest of you, so always look for the natural and the healthy option where possible.

The oils and the vitamins below can be used to create concoctions, combinations that work better when used together than they would ever work on their own. They should also have some benefits when used on their own though and because they are widely available and FDA approved, you shouldn’t have any major issues with them. These can be used to thicken the hair on your head as well as the hair on your face and your body, should you need an assistance with that.

So, let’s get to it and answer the question of how to grow thicker hair and how to get better results.

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Oils

Grow Thicker Hair

There are many hair growth oils on the market that are easy to come by, completely natural and can work wonders on your hair. These can either be combined with other products, used as a base for a hair growth mixture, or used on their own. Some of the most effective hair growth oils include:

  • Castor Oil: Whether you use Jamaican Black Castor Oil or just the stuff that they sell in Walmart, this is a very effective treatment and one that can do your hair a world of good. It contains Vitamin E and can help to kill fungus that forms on your scalp and inhibits growth. If you want to know how to grow thicker hair then start looking into castor oil.
  • Coconut Oil: A great product that works wonders on your hair and on many other things as well. It is easy to use this in combination with other ingredients and it also works very well on it own. This has been considered somewhat of a miracle ingredient in recent years and it can be found everywhere.
  • Argan Oil: This is a powerful hair thickener. It workers to lock moisture into your hair and it can also help to make your hair thicker and fuller. You will find argan oil in many hair growth formulas as well as many shampoos and conditioners, and that’s because this really is a potent product
  • Olive Oil: This might not be as effective for growing thicker hair, but it’s natural and most of you will have some olive oil in your home. It is a great protector and it can help to lock moisture in your hair. There are also many beneficial fats that will help your hair follicles to retain some essential vitamins. Because of this it might be best used in combination with other hair growth products, such as a vitamin mixture.

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Vitamins

These can be added to the list above to create a potent mixture. The vitamins need time to be absorbed into your scalp and to work their magic, and the oils could be a great way for that to happen.

Some of the vitamins to consider include Vitamin E and Vitamin C, both of which can wok for skincare and both of which can help to add volume to your hair. These vitamins can actually be found in some of the oils mentioned above, but they are not the only ones to consider.

The best hair growth vitamins are actually B Vitamins. And the most potent of these is Biotin. This is actually used in the production of hair and is essential for the process. Without it, your hair growth rate will suffer; with plenty of it, your hair will have all it needs to grow thick, strong and long.

So, load-up on Biotin, Niacin, Vitamin B5 and only then consider adding a host of other vitamins. These can include Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin E.

How to Grow Thicker Hair: Supplements and Shampoos

One of the best products you can use to thicken your hair is Minoxidil. This is marketed as a hair growth formula and it does help with that. But it can also work to make you hair thicker and stronger.

Minoxidil can be taken as a generic medication. It is rubbed into the hair 1 or 2 times a day for many months. It should start showing results within 6 weeks. Finasteride can also work to thicken the hair. This is often prescribed to help shrink the prostate and eliminate the symptoms caused by enlarged prostate. It does this by reducing DHT, and a reduction of this chemical can also help to limit have loss.

There are also shampoos out there that contain minoxidil and sill medications. These include Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment. It has been said to work in a similar way, but it is also more expensive because of the many other ingredients that it contains.

The important thing to understand with these medications is that they are not natural; they are not as safe as the oils and vitamins mentioned above. The side effects are actually very rare. However, they still exist and they still need to be taken into consideration when you are considering using these products.

Your Hair Growth Questions Answered: Hair Growth FAQ

Your Hair Growth Questions Answered: Hair Growth FAQ

Does Biotin Help Hair Growth?

Hair Growth Pills was created to help you to answer your hair growth questions. We began by focusing on the big questions and we answered them in detail. However, before long you began to ask many more questions. We have done our best to keep up, which is why you can find hundreds of articles across this website, but to help make life easier for you we like to compile some of them into FAQ articles every now and then.

That’s what this article is. These questions all focus on hair growth, and your questions concerning them. We have also written an FAQ on hair loss where we study the many things that can trigger it. So, check the article below out first and then take a look at that one if you still have some questions.

What Vitamins are Good For Hair Growth?

One of the best vitamins for hair growth is Biotin, which we will discuss in more detail below. There are many other vitamins that cam help to trigger hair growth though. These include everything from Vitamin C to B Vitamins, Vitamin D and more. Minerals like Iron and Zinc can also help and are often included in hair growth supplements.

Does Biotin Help Hair Growth?

Of course! This is actually something we have addressed at great length in the past. If you take a look at out Biotin for Hair Loss article you will see what we had to say about this B Vitamin. It is one that we discuss more than any other, and you will notice that it is also found in all kinds of hair growth supplements and shampoos.

That’s because Biotin helps with the hair growth process. It is actually involved in that process, helping the body to create the enzymes that it needs to activate those hair follicles and get that hair growing. The same can be said for many B Vitamins, but Biotin plays the biggest role of all.

How Much Biotin for Hair Growth?

This vitamin is abundant in food and you should be getting enough of it regardless of what you eat and even if you are a picky eater. However, more might be better. The hair growth supplements that contain this vitamin tend to have more than 500% of your RDA, if not more. It is a water soluble vitamin, so it’s okay to take high doses (to an extent) because what your body does not use will be eliminated.

However, you really don’t need that much. You should look to consume a few hundred percent of your RDA, preferably as 2 or 3 doses throughout the day. You can also use a topical solution in the form of a hair growth shampoo, although in this case there is really no concrete proof that it will do you any good.

How to Increase Hair Growth?

Increase Hair Growth?

There are many ways that you can increase hair growth. The way you choose will depend on a number of factors, from your health status to your budget, your sex and your age. For instance, if you have a lot of bald patches and a lot of money, then a hair transplant might be the best solution. If you prefer something non-invasive and the hair loss is not severe, then you can use supplements, vitamins and other natural solutions.

In all cases, you can also use products like Minoxidil, which is available (and FDA approved) for both men and women and should be relatively harmless in most cases. If you are a man and you are above the age of 40, then you may also benefit greatly from a medication known as Finasteride. This is basically a wonder drug as it works incredibly well for hair growth, but it can also stop your prostate to growing to painful proportions.

How to Promote Hair Growth?

As mentioned above, it’s just a matter of finding what works best for you. You may need to try many different hair growth formulas before you find one that works. In fact, many people suffering from hair loss do just that, but they often make life difficult for themselves in the process.

They try expensive shampoos for day or weeks; they try Minoxidil and give up quickly; and they rely too much on unproven supplements. There is no point in trying something if you’re not going to use it properly. So, always follow the advice on the label, always use the product for a full course of treatment, and never overdo it or rush it. Only when you have followed the label to the letter can you think about giving up if it does not work.

How to Stop Hair Growth?

Stop Hair Growth?

This is rarely a problem that people have with the hair on their head. And in all honesty, it’s something you should not look to stop with the hair on your head. It is a natural process and stopping it could cause harm. What’s more, it might be irreversible, so you could regret it at a later date.

As far as the hair on your body is concerned, this is less of an issue. As discussed in our Hair Growth Rate article, all hair grows at the same rate, but for many, the hair on the body is just not wanted.

There are laser treatments that can get rid of this, and there are also creams that may be able to help. The trick is to stop the hair follicle from working, which is not easy and usually more trouble than it’s worth. Instead of trying to stop the hair you should be looking for ways to keep growth to a minimum and to keep the area clean and well moisturized in order to limit problems and discomfort.

Does Coconut Oil Help Hair Growth?

At the very least coconut oil will help to protect, moisturize and strengthen you hair. It is highly unlikely that it will actually trigger hair growth, but because it can strengthen your hair, it may help to increase the hair on your head.

What’s more, this is a natural product and it’s also fairly cheap, so you don’t need to worry about it doing harm or causing side effects and you don’t need to worry about it costing you a small fortune to keep the supply going.

How to Stimulate Facial Hair Growth?

The best way to grow facial hair is just to keep the area clean and wait. This is very much a “watched pot never boils” situation. The more you stare and wig, the longer it seems and the more frustrated you become.

There are a few things you can do without resorting to Minoxidil and other medications though. If you pay a visit to our Eyebrow Growth page you will see that we recommend treatments like castor oil, aloe vera and other oils and vitamins. These nourish the hair follicle, protect the hair and they might just be able to help with hair growth. It’s not going to give you the Grizzly Adams look overnight, but it should protect at the worst and help to increase growth at the best.

How to Promote Beard Hair Growth?

As with the above, it’s just a case of proper cleaning and proper care. You can also use oils and other products and because it’s your beard and not eyebrows and eyelashes, it is easier to apply products and to leave them in overnight without worrying about anything getting in your eyes.

You can use castor oil, olive oil, coconut oil and a combination of all three. There are other oils and other substances that you can use as well. If you’re really struggling with beard hair growth then you may also want to try using Minoxidil on your beard.

Does Castor Oil Work for Hair Growth?

Does Castor Oil Help Hair Growth?

This is one of the oils that we recommend the most for hair growth as it is one that actually seems to work. Not only can it protect, but it can also nourish. It does this via its Vitamin E content, which is great for the skin. Castor oil can also help to kill bacteria that sits on your skin and inhibits hair growth. This bacteria will not make a huge difference in your hair growth fortunes, but it’s just one of the many ways that this substance can help.

How Much Castor Oil to Use for Hair Growth?

You don’t need a lot of this substance to help with hair growth. You should dilute it and/or add it to something else. We often recommend using it with aloe vera gel when applying it to your beard, your eyebrows and your eyelashes, and mixing it with water when applying it to your head.

You should try and leave it in for at least an hour or two to get the most benefit out of it and to allow the castor oil to work. This can be tricky because it’s an oil, which is why it is important to mix it with a substance that gels, forms and sticks.

Does Folic Acid Help Hair Growth?

This is something that we haven’t covered a lot, because as far as we can see, folic acid does not help with hair growth. It is a good vitamin to take and it can certainly help when consumed with other hair growth vitamins, but on its own it is unlikely to cause any noticeable difference.

That is, of course, unless you are suffering from a deficiency. In such cases you may be experiencing hair loss and/or thinning of the hair because of a lack of this important vitamin. By adding it back to your diet you can reverse those problems.

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow

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

How to Make your Eyelashes Grow

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.
How to Grow Eyebrows (Quick Growth, Growth Rate, More)

How to Grow Eyebrows (Quick Growth, Growth Rate, More)

How to Grow Eyebrows

Have you over-plucked and over-pruned? Are you desperately seeking ways to grow your eyebrows? Well, all hope is not lost. In this guide we will show you how to grow eyebrows so you can get your dignity back. Just make sure you’re not so trigger happy with the tweezers next time.

How to Grow Eyebrows: Minoxidil

One of the first treatments that you need to consider is Minoxidil. This is typically used to help with hair growth on the head, but it can work just as effectively on the face. There are a number of people who have used Minoxidil to grow out their beard, and often to great effect. The principle is the same, and if you simply want to speed up the eyebrow growth process and you don’t have a problem with alopecia or anything similar, then it should work even better.

Even if you have issues with alopecia then you should still be able to grow some hair using this treatment. That’s what it was designed for after all. And because you’re working with very little hair and you don’t need a huge amount of growth then you should be able to see better results and to see those results quicker.

You need to make sure that you don’t get it in your eyes and you should also look to avoid too much contact with the rest of your skin. It should be relatively safe, but it may also trigger hair growth in areas where you don’t want it. So, read the label, be very careful and don’t treat it like it’s completely safe and completely harmless, because it’s not.

How to Grow Eyebrows: Vitamins

Grow Eyebrows

If you’re worried about the safety of Minoxidil then you can always just stick with natural products, such as vitamins and minerals. These may not be as effective, but they are abundantly available, they are safe, they are cheap and research suggests that they might still be able to help.

You don’t apply these topically and you don’t even need to get them in a multi-vitamin. You just need to make sure that you get enough of the right vitamins and minerals in your diet. These include B Vitamins like Biotin. This is actually involved in the hair growth process and your body needs it to continue producing hair. Without it, the process will be slowed at best and stopped at worst. If you have plenty of it in your diet, on the other hand, then you are giving your body all it needs to grow plenty of healthy hair.

If you’re worried that you’re not getting enough, then you should consider supplementation. Many vitamin deficiencies can limit hair growth and can also cause all kinds of damage to your hair. Such is the case with a zinc deficiency, and it may also occur with an iron and Vitamin C deficiency. So, not only can adding these vitamins to your diet help with the hair growth process, both on your face and your head, but a lack of them can stop it from going through the cycle.

How to Grow Eyebrows: Supplements

Supplements to Grow Eyebrows

By supplements, we don’t necessarily mean multi-vitamins, although the best ones do contain a wealth of essential vitamins that can help with the hair growth process. They also contain extracts, minerals and other ingredients that have been shown to help with hair loss, but are just as natural as vitamins.

Such is the case with Hairfinity, a product that is said to promote hair growth and is taken in tablet form. Again, the purpose of these products is to help the hair on your head grow, but because they help with the overall hair growth process, they can also speed-up growth on your face.

Everything from nettle extract and horsetail extract to blueberry extract and lemon peel has been used in one hair growth formula or another. How effective these actually are is anyone’s guess and its unlikely that they will do anything on their own. But when you combine them with other ingredients and bring them together into one super supplement, then you have something that will almost certainly deliver some results.

The key here is not to spend too much money and not to get too caught up in fancy sounding ingredients or well designed packaging. Supplement companies work on big margins. They tend to use cheap base ingredients before adding a few extracts here and there, spending a lot on design and promotion and then adding a huge label to the bottle. You just don’t need to pay this, not when you consider that you can get the same results by buying these ingredients separately and creating the product yourself.

How to Grow Eyebrows: Oils

Oil can be a great lubricant, forming a barrier to protect the hair follicles. And if the oil is full of nutrients then it can also slowly leech those nutrients into the follicle, allowing it to grow strong hair from root to tip. There are many oils out there that fit this description. The one we have talked about the most here on Hair Growth Oils is castor oil. Not only is it a lubricating and protecting oil, but it is full of Vitamin C, which is great for those bald or balding eyebrows and for the skin around them.

Olive oil is also very popular. It is loaded with nutrients as well and is a very potent and beneficial substance. The same applies to coconut oil and argan oil. All of these oils are common in cooking and they are often eaten raw as well to get the full benefits. That’s not going to do much for your eyebrow growth, but if you apply them directly then they should be able to help. They don’t mix of course, but you don’t need to use them together.

Essential oils also fall into this category and can be just as effective, albeit for different reasons. These oils need to be diluted, and they often work by cleaning the area of growth-inhibiting bacteria. They may not be as effective and they certainly won’t work as quickly. But you can add these to other ingredients and you can also apply them while taking vitamins and supplements. Although you should probably avoid applying them with Minoxidil.

Lyme Disease Hair Loss (Causes, Treatments, Hair Growth Solutions)

Lyme Disease Hair Loss (Causes, Treatments, Hair Growth Solutions)

Lyme Disease and Hair Loss

Looking for information on Lyme Disease and hair loss? Then you have come to the right place. Here on Hair Growth Pills we focus on both the causes and the cures; in this guide we’re going to turn the spotlight on this horrible disease.

Lyme Disease has been in the global spotlight for the last few years. A number of celebrities have talked about their struggles with this disease. That has thrust it into the mainstream, with many people now beginning to understand what it is, what it can do and how damaging it can be. Because of the connections between Lyme Disease and hair loss, it’s something that we have also decided that there is a desperate need to cover.

Lyme Disease and hair loss go hand in hand. Many sufferers of this disease have experienced it and it is one of the many damaging and upsetting symptoms. So, let’s take a look at Lyme Disease in full as we ask why are Lyme Disease and hair loss so closely linked and what can you do about it if you experience it?

What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme Disease is caused by a bacteria, which is transmitted via a tick. This tick carries the bacteria and then passes it to humans. The tick in question is the backlogged deer tick, which is the most common tick in the United States and is typically present in long grass. The disease causes all kinds of unpleasant symptoms and while it can be treated with a short course of antibiotics, some people with the disorder experience symptoms for the rest of their lives.

It is a very difficult disease to diagnose and typically presents with symptoms that include fever, headaches and fatigue. One of the side effects of this disease is hair loss, and it’s one of the most unpleasant. Because while it’s not dangerous or life threatening, it can be very difficult for the patient and can damage their confidence.

Lyme Disease and Hair Loss: The Causes

Lyme Disease and Hair Loss Cause

While we know that Lyme Disease and hair loss go hand in hand, we don’t really know how the disease triggers hair loss. It can make the hair dry and brittle. It can make it fall out in clumps. All of this way know, but medical professionals have yet to determine just what the reasons behind this are.

Some suggest that it could be the result of a build-up of toxins. As discussed on our Causes of Hair Loss in Women and our Causes of Hair Loss in Men articles, bad nutrition can play a huge role in hair loss. There are vitamins out there that can play a role in keeping your hair strong, shiny and intact, and a lack of them can have the opposite effect. So, there is a chance that Lyme Disease and hair loss could be the result of the disease damaging the way that the body processes vitamins.

It could also be related to stress, it could be related to the treatment, and to the way the bacteria responds to it. It could even be a combination of all of these things.

Lyme Disease and Hair Loss: The Cures

Lyme Disease and Hair Loss Cures

While the cause of hair loss in Lyme Disease is not quite clear, the ways that you can counteract it and regrow your hair is a little clearer. The first thing you should look to do is to make sure you are eating well, consuming the right vitamins and minerals and that you are avoiding stress. Take a look at our Best Hair Vitamins and our Vitamins for Hair Growth articles to find out what you should be consuming.

You can also try some supplements and shampoos. Some of these, like Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment, contain medications that are designed to speed-up the hair growing process. There are also medications such as Finasteride, which also goes by he name “Propecia”. However, these can cause side effects and if you are recovering from this disease then you may be more exposed to them than you would usually be.

One of the best things you can do is look into some simple, safe hair growth remedies. We have discussed these many times already, but to give you a quick rundown take a look at the next section.

How to Regrow Hair After Lyme Disease

Here are some treatments that are typically used to regrow hair on your eyelashes and eyebrows, and can also be adapted for your scalp:

  • Aloe Vera Gel and Castor Oil: We love castor oil here on Hair Growth Pills. It is loaded with essential oils and Vitamin E. It has some anti-fungal properties as well. By adding it to the aloe vera gel you are creating a substance that can easily be rubbed on your scalp and you are also benefiting from those soothing effects.
  • Olive Oil: You can also add this to the aloe vera gel, or just apply it directly. Olive oil is a great lubricant and it is also full of healthy fats and vitamins. It is a natural and safe way to cleanse and soothe and may be able to help with hair growth. It is already being prescribed to treat skin conditions and have been used to clear ear wax blockages for many years.
  • Lemon Peel: This may sound like an odd inclusion, but it does work. If you create your own lemon peel mixture by adding the peel to olive oil and letting it sit, you can create a substance that is sticky, gloopy and perfect for rubbing on your hair. It will soothe and strengthen.
  • Coconut Oil: Another favorite of ours, this is popular with many users worldwide. It has found a place in countless kitchens and medicine cabinets. You can apply it directly, leaving it in and then washing it out hours later. The results should be instant, but they will increase over time. The coconut oil will nourish and protect. It will keep damaged hair away from the stresses of the outside world, allowing it time to grow back to normal.

Further Help with Lyme Disease

Help With Lyme Disease and Hair Loss

Looking for more information about this horrible disease and all of the damage that it can do? Then make sure you checkout the following links. These don’t focus on Lyme Disease and hair loss as we have done in this guide. Instead, they discuss the disease in more detail. They will point you towards ways that you can receive help and treatment in the United States and further afield.

Knowledge is essential and in this article we have hopefully helped you with that. But having support and guidance is also just as important and these links should be able to fill in the gaps that we have left:

Resources for Lyme Disease Support

  • CDC: Where better to learn about the symptoms of a disease than the Center for Disease Control? They have warned about this illness many times over the years. They are now working hard to bring down the numbers of sufferers, while helping those who have been unfortunate enough to catch the disease.
  • Gov.UK: Do you live in the United Kingdom? If so, then this page can help. It can point you in the right direction and allow you to seek help from the NHS. This is not as much of problem in the UK as it is in the US. But many people still catch it. What’s more, because the health service isn’t as used to dealing with it, they may be oblivious when you report the symptoms to them. So, make sure you are informed about your own symptoms so that you can keep them informed as well.
  • National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: This organization has a full guide devoted to Lyme Disease. It covers all symptoms (including hair loss) and helping with each and every one of them.
  • MedicinePlus: Another great resource, this one focuses on the available treatments for Lyme Disease. They are not as focused on hair loss and hair conditioning as we are in this article. But they encompass everything. And after all, as big of a problem as hair loss is, it’s far from the worst thing that can happen when you contract this disease.
How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow: Cheap, Effective Home Remedies

How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow: Cheap, Effective Home Remedies

How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow

Women have a close relationship with their hair and their eyelashes. There are times when they think the former could be thicker and the latter could be longer, but for the most part, they are happy (somewhat) with them both. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find a woman who is 100% happy with their eyebrows 100% of the time.

Some women like to shave them off and pencil them in everyday. Others prefer to go for a tattoo, essentially making that process permanent. However, it’s much better to keep your original eyebrows and to play with what you have. If they are thick and strong, there’s so much you can do with them and they look infinitely better than those thin, emotionless lines you’re drawing on your face everyday!

In this article we’ll show you how to make your eyebrows grow. Once they are thick and strong, then the world (or rather your face) is your oyster and you can make of it what you will. We take no responsibility for anything that you create beyond that point (unless it’s amazing, in which case it was all us) but we will help you to get there.

How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow

There are a number of home remedies that you can use to make your eyebrows grow and that’s what we will cover in this guide on “How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow”. Before we get to that point though there are a few other things you can do to ensure your hair and your skin is well prepared. Consider it a foundation of good beauty and great hair.

The first thing you should do is take a look at our baldness cures, which can help to get rid of those bald spots; our vitamin for hair loss article, which can strengthen your hair; and our hair loss in women article, which can help with a number of issues. If you’re a man then you can also check with our beard growth products article and our guide on saw palmetto.

Right, now that we’ve got that self promotion out of the way, it’s time to get to the reason you’re here: how to make your eyebrows grow. First up, it’s a favorite of ours, something that should be found in every beauty collection, but something often resigned to your grandmother’s medicine box, along with a bottle of iodine and enough painkillers to kill a herd of elephants.

Caster Oil

Caster Oil for Eyebrows

You grandmother’s favorite constipation cure is also our favorite hair growth cure. If you want to know how to make your eyebrows grow then look no further. Not only can this oil effectively kill the microorganisms that cling to your hair and restrict growth, but it can also stimulate your hair follicles and encourage growth. What’s more, it is rich in Vitamin E, which is brilliant for speeding up hair growth.

To use caster oil on your eyebrows, simply coat a cotton swab in the substance and then gently rub it on your brow. Don’t use too much of it—you don’t want it to drip into your eyes. Once you have applied a thin layer, then spend a few minutes massaging your eyebrows. By that point it should have dried and stopped running.

You can either leave it in for a few hours and then wash off, or you can leave it in overnight. But even the simple act or rubbing it in and massaging will be effective.

Coconut Oil

This has been hailed as the “next big thing”. If you believe bloggers and “health experts” then coconut oil is both a superfood, a medical marvel and the ultimate mouthwash. We don’t know about any of that, but we do know that it is effective at making your eyebrows grow longer.

To use coconut oil, just follow the same steps as outlined above for the caster oil. Its effects tend not to be as instant though, so in this case you should look to leave it in overnight.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil for Eyebrows

This can also be used in the same way as the caster oil treatment, and it will react in much the same way as well. Just make sure you warm the oil slightly first. You don’t want it boiling hot and spitting, of course, but you want it to be warm to the touch. You can also mix the oil with a little honey so that it sticks to your face better. What’s more, honey has an antibacterial effect that may help to kill those troublesome organisms that are restricting growth.

Olive oil is a little more readily available and is probably already sitting in your kitchen cupboards. This is a truly wonderful substance and is every bit of a medical marvel that coconut oil has been labelled as.

Not only is it a great foodstuff, but olive oil’s benefits have also been noted by the medical community. It is used to clear blocked ear wax and is also prescribed for certain skin conditions. It’s a miracle substance and it works just as well at growing your eyebrows.

Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek Seeds for Eyebrows

A staple of middle eastern and Asian cooking, fenugreek seeds are a great way to spice up a dish, but they can also help you to grow your eyebrows. They are rich in amino acids and protein, which is what all hair needs. They also contain nicotinic acid, which can help to promote hair growth and rebuild damaged policies.

To create a concoction with these seeds, simply soak a handful of them in water for at least 6 hours. That will soften them up and allow you to easily grind them into a paste. Once you do that you can add a little honey, olive oil and/or coconut oil. Not too much. You still want a paste-like substance, but if you can also benefit from the goodness of those substances, then why not go for it?

Apple the paste to your eyebrows and wait for it to harden before going to bed. You can wash it off in the morning and then repeat the process a few times a week. You should notice the effects in a matter of weeks.

What more could you want?

Caster Oil for Eyelash Growth

Caster oil is one of the best things you can use for eyelash growth. And don’t just take our word for it. This is a popular eyelash growth DIY trick that countless women around the world use. It is a little time consuming and it can be a little messy, but you can’t argue with the results. If you are prepared to suffer for beauty, and you’d rather try some cheap eyelash growth DIY tricks than opt for any of those expensive products, then give caster oil a go.

The first thing you need, of course, is caster oil. This is easily available over the counter. It is used as a cure-all and while it is not as popular of a medicine today as it was in your grandparents’ days, it is still widely used. One of the most most common uses for caster oil is as a laxative, and quite a volatile one at that. So if you get any funny looks from the sales staff when you buy it, you know why.

You should also buy some soothing aloe vera gel (which will definitely get you some funny looks if you buy song with the caster oil). Once you have those ingredients then simply mix some of the oil with the gel until you have something that is viscous and sticky, but is predominately caster oil.

Take an old mascara brush, dip it in and then coat your eyelashes in this substance. Do this before you go to sleep, leave it on all night and then wash it off in the morning. The oil will help to stimulate growth, while killing any organisms that restrict it. The aloe vera gel will help to soothe your skin and follicles. It also makes the oil easier to apply.

Natural Eyelash Growth

Eyelash Growth DIY

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as “natural eyelash growth”. Like the caster oil trick mentioned above, this is a eyelash growth DIY trick that is very cheap. And don’t worry, we’re not going to tell you just to sit and watch the clock while your eyelashes grow-in.

All you need to do is clean and brush you eyelashes. Simple as that. It seems overly simple. Silly even. But you’d be surprised how many women beg for longer eyelashes, use all of the products under the sun, but the ignore the basics. By regularly brushing your eyelashes and making sure they are clean, you’re removing all the dead skin cells that build up and you’re giving your lashes room to grow. You’re also helping to stimulate those follicles.

For most of you, the only time you clean your eyelashes is when you’re washing your face or using wipes to remove make-up. The only time you brush them is when you’re applying mascara. So, just take some time to focus on cleaning them and brushing them with a clean and dry brush every day. Five minutes at a time will suffice, and you should see the effects immediately.

Lemon Peels and Olive Oil

Lemon Peels for Eyelash Growth

One of our personal favorite eyelash growth DIY tips involves the use of lemon peels. Typically, it’s not advisable to put citrus anywhere near your eyes. But in this case it can help to add volume to you eyelashes and it’s incredibly cheap.

Simply peel a lemon and then let that peel dry before adding it to a small jar. Pour some olive oil into the jar so that it just covers the peels. You want them to be saturated, soaking up all they can of that delicious oil. Move the jar to a dry place and then simply leave it for a couple weeks. In the meantime, you can always try some of the other eyelash growth tricks above.

After a couple weeks the liquid will be nice and sticky, as well as a little pungent. When it reaches this stage you need to dip a dry mascara brush in the liquid and then coat your eyelashes with it. As with the caster oil and aloe vera trick outlined above, you need to leave this in overnight and then wash it off in the morning.

If you do this for a few weeks and you will begin to notice some positive effects. The peel of a single lemon will produce quite lot of this substance, enough to get you through those few weeks. So, if you do notice those positive effects then make sure you make another concoction straight away. That way you can continue using this eyelash growth technique for many months.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil Eyelash Growth

The eyelash growth technique mentioned above works because of a combination of olive oil and lemon peel, not just because of the lemon peel. Olive oil is hugely beneficial for the skin and the hair. It’s great, so it’s not always easy to use. But if you don’t want to go through the process of creating a pungent citrus concoction then you can simply mix some olive oil with aloe vera gel or some other skin-safe gel.

You can, of course, just dip the dry brush into a little olive oil and then apply it directly. This is a little messy though, so it’s advisable to use some other ingredient as a base. It is also possible to combine some of these eyelash growth techniques, but don’t try to coat your eyelashes with too many substances and avoid interchanging between different techniques. Find one that is easiest for you and use it for a few weeks to give it time to work. It can be a nuisance to keep such a regime up, but once you see the effects you’ll have the motivation you need to continue.
