DIY Castor Oil Serum For Longer Thicker Lashes

Posted By:

We cannot think of going to a party without a few thick coats of a good mascara, and fake eye lashes are a must have in our beauty arsenal. However, the things we so easily opt for to achieve those lush long lashes, without another thought, are not without their fair share of side effects.

Excess traction on the lashes from eyelash extensions can permanently damage the hair follicles, preventing hair growth. Mascara on the other hand can make your hair brittle and dry overtime, causing breakage. Also, the hair growth serums that we so blindly trust are infused with strong chemicals that can cause irritation or worse, red eyes.

So why castor oil? Packed with omega-6 fats, proteins and vitamins, it stimulates hair follicles, boosting growth.

Emu oil on the other hand is celebrated for its anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and non-comedogenic properties that nourishes lashes, making it stronger and longer, without clogging pores. Coconut oil and vitamin E oil prevent lashes from getting dry and form a protective barrier against outside elements.
