How Can I Increase My Eyelash Growth?

How come some people have luscious long lashes, and others are left with flat, short lashes? It seems completely unfair!

The worst thing is having false eyelashes or eyelash extensions, and the glue completely rips off your natural lashes, leaving you with stumpy ones! 

It’s not the end of the world, because there are actually a lot of things that you can do to improve your natural lashes, and help increase your eyelash growth. Don’t worry, we have got you covered!

With our guide, we can show you exactly how to increase your eyelash growth, and help get those lashes back to long, luscious perfection!

How can I increase my eyelash growth?

There are many ways that you can improve your natural eyelashes. One of the best ways you can do this is to use lash-boosting mascara. Look for ones that are infused with collagen (look for one that explicitly mentions eyelash growth). In addition, you could try using a booster primer that will condition the eyelashes before using mascara.

Another way that you can give your eyelashes a boost is with 100% pure castor oil, this works to nourish the eyelashes, keeping them moisturized, protected and restoring them to health. You don’t just have to use this on your eyelashes, castor oil is also great for eyebrow follicles too, helping them grow and thrive, so you can have the natural brows and lashes that you desire. 

Some beauty influencers swear by specific eyelash serums but this can be a… tricky area. I haven’t seen anything I like myself so I can’t suggest anything specifically. Just avoid anything with a long and unhealthy-looking list of chemicals.

We also recommend brushing out the eyelashes regularly. This can prevent them from getting tangled, stuck, or falling out. Just use a small eyelash brush wand that you can carry everywhere with you.

By using an eyelash brush regularly to fix any tangles, you are less likely to use your fingers to pull at your eyelashes, which would result in you losing some. Keep your hands away, and do not fidget or pull at them!

Bonus tip: While vaseline can’t help your eyelashes grow (I don’t know where we got that idea) they can give them a fuller, plumper effect and reflects the light. Just use a very little bit.

Does coconut oil grow eyelashes?

Coconut oil truly is a wonder product that is taking the world by storm. You can use coconut oil to moisturize and protect your skin, hair and eyelashes, as it works to protect from damage and prevent protein loss. This will then result in fewer lashes breaking and falling out, and increasing the chances of your eyelashes growing. 

By applying coconut oil to the eyelashes and leaving it to sit on them, your lashes can begin to appear fuller, thicker and much healthier. Just make sure that the coconut oil is natural and 100% pure.

Does olive oil grow eyelashes?

Olive oil is also an effective treatment for eyelash growth! It can be used to help promote thicker, fuller lashes, and as a natural eye makeup remover. This is because it is rich in fatty acids such as palmitic acid, linoleic acid and oleic acid, which work to soften, condition and encourage healthy lashes.

Olive oil is proven to help strengthen hair, and so you can use this natural remedy to grow and improve your lashes! 

Why are my lashes so thin? 

If you have begun to lose eyelashes or feel that your eyelash growth is stunted, it could be for a number of reasons. Your mascara could be making the eyelashes fragile, or even things like a new product or medicated eye drops can leave the lashes dry and prone to breakage. 

Other causes are if you touch or rub your eyes a lot, as this can break the lashes, or you may be pulling them out accidentally. In addition, lashes can become dry, brittle and thin if you use a lot of products on them, such as mascara, and do not clean it off properly. This can result in a buildup that breaks down the natural lash. 

This is why it is vital that you cleanse your eyelashes, especially if you have been wearing false eyelashes or glue. Find a sulfate and paraben-free shampoo to keep your natural lashes safe.

If you have got broken eyelashes, it is not the end of the world. Lashes grow on a four to eight week cycle, so they will come back in no time at all. Just make sure that you give them a good boost with lots of castor oil, coconut oil or serums to improve their health. 

How do I apply oils and serums to my lashes? 

To apply coconut oil, castor oil or other products to the lashes, simply use a small, disposable eyelash brush. Use the brush, by coating it in the serum, and then applying it to the lashes.
