Eyelashes

 

Eyelash extensions have taken the beauty world by storm and for good reason, they give women the long, thick eyelashes that all girls dream of having. They make eyes look bigger and brighter and keep the face looking put together and bright even without any makeup, including mascara on. They look absolutely stunning and can last up to three weeks before they need to be done again, unlike false eyelashes which fall off the same day. But what you do not think about while your eyelash extensions catch everyone’s eye because of how good they look, is if your natural eyelashes are getting damaged while they are underneath the extensions.

The Aftermath of Eyelash Extensions

What usually happens after having eyelash extensions for a long time is that our natural eyelashes begin to fall out. that is right, they all start falling out! So why does this happen and what can you do to grow them back as quickly as possible? The first thing you need to learn about is the stages of eyelash growth. Eyelashes can fall out because you rubbed your eye too hard, because of stress, or even because something got in your eye. It takes a while but the eyelashes will grow back in phases beginning with the Anagen phase. Each individual eyelash goes through this phase for about two weeks and is the growth period. They then enter the catagen phase where the lash stops growing. 2-3 weeks later you enter into the telogen phase that lasts 4-9 months and the eyelash rests until it falls out and starts the cycle over again. So what can be done to hurry up the growth process when it seems that you will never have beautiful natural lashes again?

Look for Natural Eye Make-up

The first thing you can do to boost your lashes is going to the store and look for an all natural mascara and a lash boost. The natural ingredients in the organic mascaras will help keep the eyelashes clean and clump-free so they are free to grow.

Just as a great organic mascara can help promote growth, most people do not realize that the right eyeliner can do the same thing. An eyeliner gives extra nourishment and hydration directly to the root of the eyelash line which encourages them to grow back faster and healthier than before.

Using Coconut oil and Castor oil to Nourish and Hydrate

There are hundreds of serums on the market that promise to make your eyelashes grow insanely fast and thick, but most of them come with a pretty steep price tag and end up not always delivering on what they promise. However, there is an alternative method to the pricey serums: natural coconut oil has been found to help stimulate lash growth and do wonders for the skin! It is gentle on the eyelashes and heps less and less fall out, while hydrating the lash line so that new growth comes in thicker and stronger. Along the same lines as coconut oil, there is the option of castor oil! Castor oil has been used for years to help hair grow in your head, but it can be used on eyelashes in the same way. Castor oil contains a lot of fatty acids that are nourishing and help eyelashes grow out strong and thick. When applied on a daily or nightly basis it helps nourish the eyelash hair follicle and is packed with antioxidants that restore the health of eyelashes as they grow. These oils also help improve circulation at follicle so lashes come in quickly and grow strong and long!

Green tea encourages growth because it is so rich in antioxidants which promotes healthy and rapid eyelash growth.
