Everybody’s obsessed with growing eyelashes longer these days and people want the best tips to accomplishing the goal. There’s a lot of debate about which tips and techniques and products work best for growing eyelashes longer but there’s a few tricks that pretty much everybody agrees on for working well to lengthen, thicken and strengthen short, thin and/or damaged eyelashes.
Trick 1 – Get the Best Nutrition for Eyelash Growth
I tell people this all the time and many people are surprised by what I say. It’s very important to get the right nutrition into your body because the body will grow nice lashes if you’ve got the right nutrition. True, it’s a genetic aspect to this also but if you want to set about growing eyelashes longer and thicker you want to be sure that you are taking some of the best nutritional products out there for growth.
You should be taking biotin, B complex, MSM, and a multi-vitamin in order to see naturally growing eyelashes over the long-term.
Trick 2 – Use a Moisturizer to Lengthen and Protect the Eyelashes
One of the biggest reasons people lose so many eyelashes and they fall out all the time is because their lashes are simply damaged and mal-nourished! If you never washed your scalp hair and moisturized it, we all know what would happen. Your hair would fall out of your head! It would become weak, brittle and thin and it would all become damaged and begin falling out. The same is true with your lashes. If you don’t take time to moisturize them they are in danger of becoming weak, brittle and thin. So you may be losing a lot of lashes, not because your lashes don’t grow but simply because your lashes don’t stay!
I recommend using a natural source of oil for the purpose of moisturizing the eyelashes. You can try olive oil, grape seed oil or some other natural oil. I have found olive oil to be the most effective hair strengthening and moisturizing oil for me and many other people recommend it as well.
Trick 3 – Don’t Cut Your Lashes
It’s amazing to know that people believe that cutting their lashes will help them grow. This logic comes from the practice of trimming the split ends of scalp hair so it will grow longer, be healthier and be stronger. The difference with growing eyelashes is that eyelashes are nowhere near as long as scalp hair! So if you cut some of an eyelash which is only ½ to 1 inch long, you’ve lost a lot of it already. Eyelashes usually don’t split like the ends of hair so there’s hardly ever a need to cut them.
These tricks should help you in your quest of growing eyelashes longer and thicker than ever.
