How to Keep Your Eyelashes Long and Healthy

Having long eyelashes is a sign of good health and beauty, but age, hormonal changes, genetics, allergic reactions, or excessive combing can make them fall out or appear short. Fortunately, there are several natural ingredients that can help reduce hair loss and promote hair growth, such as shea butter, castor oil, coconut oil, green tea and vitamin E. In addition, biotin supplementation may be useful if hair loss on the eyelashes is related to biotin deficiency. To prevent eyelashes from falling out, limit the use of eyelash extensions, curlers, and low-quality products on eyelashes or eyelids.

Research has found that eyelashes of optimal length are the best at preventing evaporation. The eyelashes create an increase in velocity that diverts airflow away from the surface of the eye, so not having them would leave the eyes vulnerable to evaporation and to incoming particles that can cause infections.

Shea Butter

is rich in vitamin C and is packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin C prevents free radical damage and increases collagen, which can help maintain the thickness of your eyelashes and increase their growth.

Castor Oil contains more ricinoleic acid which is the main component of castor oil and constitutes approximately 90% of it. This acid has demonstrated its potential to aid hair loss. However, a clinical case shows that the high viscosity of castor oil can cause hair matting and extreme dryness. Therefore, consult your dermatologist before trying this remedy.

Coconut Oil is used for hair care because of its penetrating effect, which helps prevent hair protein loss. Therefore, it can also be used to treat thin, damaged eyelashes and help them grow back. However, be careful when using coconut oil as it can leave an oily film on your eyelashes that weigh them down.

Vitamin E

is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce oxidative damage caused by increased hair loss. It also contains tocotrienol compounds that may help increase the number of locks of hair.

Therefore, it can help to lengthen eyelashes.

Green Tea

is a rich source of a polyphenol called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which may help promote hair growth. Therefore, it can also help eyelash growth. If you've ended up cutting your eyelashes, don't worry. They should grow back in 2 or 3 weeks.
