How to make your lashes stronger
Castor oil nourishes the hair follicles of the eyelashes, making them stronger and promoting the growth of new ones. Castor oil, rich in vitamin E and omega fatty acids, nourishes hair follicles and enhances the growth of eyelashes and eyebrows. While the oil has been both touted and discredited as a hair growth ingredient, one thing is clear: it will help hydrate your lashes, which can make them look fuller and fuller. Oils such as vitamin E, castor oil, olive oil and even petroleum jelly have a positive effect on eyelashes.
Castor oil, Coconut oil, and Almond oil are the three most common oils used to make eyelash serums. The high protein content of olive oil stimulates hair growth, while the nourishing properties of coconut and almond oils make lashes silky smooth and prevent breakage. Mix the three oils together and gently apply the mixture to your lashes. Instead of rubbing makeup vigorously, gently massage coconut oil into your eyelids and lashes, then pat the oil and makeup dry with a cotton pad. You can use a clean roll to apply coconut oil to your lashes in the evening and wash off in the morning.
Dip a cotton pad in the oil (don’t soak it) and wipe the lashes with it. Dip a cotton ball in cold-pressed castor oil and apply to your upper and lower lashes. To use on lashes, put a drop or two of castor oil on a clean cotton swab and brush along the lash line.
Apply daily with a brush to lashes for fuller, stronger lashes without mascara. Soak a disposable mascara stick in the oil of your choice and apply to lashes from base to tip. Then use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes a few times, but before applying mascara.
Light pressure eye massage with or without oil (such as coconut oil) can promote eyelash growth and hydrate the eyes and lashes when oil is used. Simply brushing your lashes daily will help stimulate their growth.
Petroleum jelly (Vaseline) can moisturize your eyelids and help remove eyelash mites, preventing further damage to your eyelashes (Trusted Source).
