Hi peeps. Today I’m here to talk about a do-it-yourself that I’ve tried recently.
One of the many beauty problems that women face nowadays is thin or short eyelashes. Every woman desires long, thick and beautiful eyelashes, and for that purpose, mostly false eyelashes or eyelash extensions are being used worldwide. However, these cannot be regarded as a proper solution. Eyelash extensions are known to cause allergies and infections too.
Everyone has different genetic traits which cannot be changed, but there are natural ways to grow your eyelashes into more longer and thicker ones. A very important factor that can affect your eyelash growth is your diet and nutrition. If a person is not getting sufficient nutrients like vitamins, minerals and collagen (a special protein which is important for hair growth), it is quite obvious that the eyelash or hair growth will not be much.
My eyelashes are, sorry to say, really thin and short too. I would have to apply multiple coats of mascara on my eyelashes to make them look a bit more dramatic, so I started looking for a very natural remedy. This led to me finding many different eyelash growth recipes online, with varying ingredients in each one. I customized and tried one of those which worked amazingly on my eyelashes, and now I’m here to share it with you guys.
- Castor oil (2 tablespoons)
- Coconut oil (2 teaspoons)
- Almond oil (2 teaspoons)
- An empty bottle with a flip-open lid
- An old mascara wand
Castor oil contains Omega-6 fatty acids and many proteins that help in hair growth. Coconut oil is universally known as another great oil that aids speedy hair growth.
- Take the castor oil and put it in the empty bottle.
- Add the coconut oil and then the almond oil.
- Close the lid and shake the bottle to mix all the oils together.
- The serum is ready to use.
To use the serum, take an old mascara wand (but make sure to clean it properly first), dip it into the bottle and apply oil on your eyelashes. Use it on your eyelashes before sleeping and let it stay on overnight. Wash your face normally in the morning. For best results, use this serum daily.
For me, this concoction worked like magic. I used it for only a week and saw results instantly, as my eyelashes were much longer than before.
TIP: Also, since this serum is for hair growth, it can be used on your eyebrows, hairline and also for beard hair.
I hope this DIY is helpful for most, if not all of you.
Until next time. 🙂
