3. Coconut milk
Coconut milk contains essential fats and protein that will nourish your lashes and help make them grow faster. Soak a cotton wool ball in coconut oil and then apply it to your lashes. Leave it in for about ten minutes, and then wash it off with Luke warm water. This is best done after you brushed your lashes first, because the coconut oil will be absorbed better into clean lashes.
4. Take a break from the false lashes
While false lashes do provide an instant touch of glamour to your look, putting them on and taking them off again can break your lashes. You might just have to give the false lashes a break while you are trying out some of these home remedies for longer lashes, so that you give your eyelashes a chance to grow naturally.
5. Massage your eyelids
Massaging your eyelids will improve the blood flow to your follicles and that will help encourage growth and strengthen the lashes. Stronger eyelashes will mean fewer breakages, so massage your eyelids in a circular motion for about five minutes a day with a bit of olive oil on your fingertips. Be gentle, though, or you will see stars!
6. Shea butter
Just like the hair on your head, if your lashes become dehydrated, they will become brittle and more prone to breakage. Shea butter is wonderfully hydrating and it contains vitamins B and E, which are perfect for nourishing eyelashes. Apply shea butter with a cotton wool swab and leave it to sit for five minutes before you rinse it off again with cool water. If you do that, two to three times a week, your lashes will have all the nourishment they need to grow thick and long.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
