How To Grow Thick, Long Lashes?
Different people will suggest different tricks to grow eyelashes. But almost 50 percent of that would be fake. But there are also several proven ways to take care of eyelashes. Here are some of the most effective and one hundred percent reliable routines that you can implement in your day to day life.
Eyelashes Growing Hacks
#1 Daily Combing
Do you comb your hair daily? Do you notice some differences when you don’t comb? Try an experiment; don’t comb your hair for a whole day. The next day when you comb your hair, you will see that hair fall has increased. The same happens with your eyelashes. They are small in number but they still need extra care.
How does combing help? Combining increases the blood flow hence stimulating hair growth and making hair follicles strong. You can buy a special eyelash comb or else, or else you can also use your old mascara brush that has been cleaned properly. You can also use a few drops of Vitamin E oil to stimulate growth. Brush your eyelashes twice a day for 5 minutes.
#2 Petroleum Jelly
When you have dry eyelashes, they are more prone to fall. Petroleum jelly provides miniaturization and nourishment to your dry lashes. You can use your finger to apply petroleum jelly to your lashes, but remember no to rub your eyes.
The second more effective method is to fill some petroleum jelly in an old mascara tube that is washed and dried properly. This will help you apply petroleum jelly and will comb your lashes at the same time. For better results, do this at night and wash your face in the morning.
#3 Nourishing Oils
Oils like Olive oil, castor oil, Vitamin E oil, and coconut oils are considered to be a great way to nourish your lashes. It also strengthens your eyelash follicles. Not just that, it also helps you prevent protein loss from hair follicles.
Simply take a few drops of oil and rub between your fingers, apply gently to your eyelashes and leave it overnight. You can choose anyone from the above-mentioned oils or else you can use different oil alternate days.
#4 Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is one of the best natural ways to improve the strength and nutrition of your eyelashes. You can apply the Aloe Vera gel or juice that you find in the market. But if you want to go pocket-friendly, use the natural Aloe Vera leaf.
Cut the leaf into two sections, squeeze the juice or flesh out of it and apply it to your eyelashes. Leave it overnight and rinse it in the morning. For better and more effective results mix aloe vera with castor oil or olive oil.
It is not at all difficult to take care of your eyelashes. All you have to do is make any one or more of the above-listed methods your daily care regime. Remember, no treatment is going to show you instant results. You need to give it proper time as the very initial result can show up after weeks. Be patient and follow the routine properly, that’s all it needs to grow healthy, fuller and long eyelashes.
