Eyes can either make or break a look. Expressive and beautiful eyes have the power to frame your face and make you look fresh and awake. Eyes with longer lashes add drama and width but not all are blessed with thick and long lashes. This is when fake lashes and lash extensions come into picture. Fake lashes do not last more than 7-8 hours and lash extensions need to be redone or fixed every 6 months or so. How about growing your natural lashes thicker and longer? Below is how you could do it with just 3 ingredients-
Coconut Oil- Coconut oil has nourishing and moisturizing properties. It helps nourish hair follicles and boosts healthy hair growth. Conditions lashes and prevents shedding and falling. Makes lashes longer and thicker gradually.
Castor Oil- Castor just as coconut oil nourishes lashes and boosts healthy hair growth. It is much saturated and high in essential fatty acids as compared to coconut oil and deeply moisturizes. Reduces shedding and makes lashes denser and longer gradually.
Aloe Vera Gel- Aloe gel hydrates lashes and keeps lash mites called demodex away. Boosts growth and conditions lashes.
RECIPE FOR COCONUT OIL LASH GROWTH BOOSTER:
Things you need-
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon castor oil
- 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
In a bowl, add coconut oil and castor oil. Add in commercial and pure aloe vera gel. Commercial aloe gel works in this recipe better than fresh aloe because it lasts longer and emulsifies with the oils. Mix until everything is well emulsified and combined. Transfer to a dropper bottle, jar or empty mascara tube. Using a mascara wand or Q-tip, apply on lashes carefully before bedtime.
