Having long, thick eyelashes is a dream for many people. But age, hormonal changes, genetics, allergic reactions, or excessive styling can cause eyelashes to fall out or appear short. Fortunately, there are some natural remedies that can help you maintain long and healthy eyelashes. Natural oils such as castor oil, coconut oil and olive oil moisturize eyelash hairs and promote healthy growth.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce oxidative damage and cause increased hair loss. Green tea is a rich source of a polyphenol called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which can help promote hair growth. Shea butter is rich in vitamin C and is full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Biotin deficiency can cause hair loss on the scalp, eyebrows and eyelashes.
Ingesting biotin supplements may help improve this condition. To make your eyelashes grow faster and healthier, you should treat them with an eyelash growth serum. More ricinoleic acid is the main component of castor oil and constitutes approximately 90%. This acid has demonstrated its potential to help with hair loss, so it can also be an alternative option to maintain the thickness of the eyelashes.
However, a clinical case shows that the high viscosity of castor oil can cause hair tangling and extreme dryness, so consult your dermatologist before trying this remedy. Coconut oil is used for hair care because of its penetrating effect, which helps prevent hair protein loss. Therefore, it can also be used to treat thin, damaged eyelashes and help them grow back. Be careful when using coconut oil, as it can leave a greasy film on your eyelashes that clumps them. Vitamin E contains tocotrienol compounds that can help increase the number of locks of hair.
Therefore, it can contribute to longer eyelashes. Green tea can also help eyelash growth. Shea butter can help you maintain the thickness of your lashes and stimulate their growth. Olive oil contains a phenolic compound called oleuropein which was found to increase hair growth in a study with rats.
Biotin supplementation may be helpful if eyelash hair loss is related to biotin deficiency. To prevent eyelashes from falling out, limit the use of eyelash extensions, curlers, and low-quality products on your eyelashes or eyelids. If you have ended up cutting your eyelashes, don't worry. They should grow back in 2-3 weeks. Sure, they may not actually make your lashes grow, but they can help create a strong, healthy base that helps stimulate overall eyelash growth. And while there's no direct scientific evidence that castor oil directly stimulates eyelash growth specifically, it could have some benefits for hair (and eyelashes by extension).
If you avoid false eyelashes, don't use the eyelash curler, remove your eye makeup every night, strengthen your current lashes with a conditioning serum and consult your doctor to prescribe a growth serum, then yes, it is possible to have longer eyelashes. Meanwhile, being too aggressive with an eyelash curler can also damage eyelashes by causing breakage and mechanical trauma. While tears may help to temporarily moisturize dry and brittle lashes, there is no scientific evidence to support that crying helps eyelashes grow. Before applying castor oil, thoroughly clean your lashes with water and dry them with a mild cleanser. With the increasing demand for thick and bulky lashes, many cosmetic brands have started selling eyelash growth serums.
