Having thick eyelashes? awesome!!!

Like the hair on your head, eyelashes follow a growth rate pattern. If your eyelashes fall out or are damaged by mascara, plucking or dyeing, you have to wait for them to regrow. While the length and health of your eyelashes is determined by genetics, there are certain natural ways to make your eyelashes grow.

Vitamin H (Biotin)

Vitamin H (Biotin) promotes faster hair growth and helps strengthen hair. Vitamin H is a B-complex vitamin that is found in numerous cosmetic products, as well as certain foods. This water-soluble vitamin is found in sardines, pecans, almonds, brewer's yeast, bananas and whole grains. Additionally, it can be found in egg yolk; however, raw egg whites contain Avidin, a protein that prohibits vitamin H absorption.

Vitamins C and E, two antioxidant vitamins, are important for normal hair growth and development. Without vitamin C, your hair can become dry and split. Additionally, vitamin C can block damage to hair from free radicals so it stays healthier and it helps healing and repair. Vitamin E increases scalp circulation for a healthy scalp. These vitamins are found in citrus fruits, avocados and leafy green vegetables.

Olive Oil

Dab a small amount of olive or castor oil on your eyelids at the base of your eyelashes every night to encourage longer, thicker lashes. You should start to see signs of new hair growth after a month or two. The new hair growth will be healthier and stronger than previous hair growth. If nothing else, olive oil acts as a conditioner to improve the health of your eyelashes.

Emu Oil

Emu oil conditions eyelashes and stimulates longer, thicker lash growth. Use a cotton ball or Q-tip to dab a small amount of the oil onto your eyelashes to condition the hair and stimulate new hair growth.


This alternative treatment works in much the same way as olive oil and castor oil. Dab a bit of it on the base of your eyelashes each night before going to bed. You can wash it off after 15 minutes if you prefer. You may see new hair growth after a few weeks.


Eating a healthy diet rich in protein and vitamins helps eyelash hair grow. Good foods to help your eyelashes grow include fish, eggs, beans and yogurt. Soy protein is also beneficial for simulating eyelash growth.

Green Tea

Natural Home Remedies recommends applying cool, unsweetened green tea to your lashes with a cotton ball to take advantage of green tea's beneficial properties. According to Whole Foods, green tea is rich in flavonoids, including epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which has potent antioxidant and health-supportive effects. As with all home remedies for eyelash growth, take care not to get the liquid into your eye, and rinse well with cool water if you do.

Petroleum jelly.

This inexpensive product, which has emollient and protective effects, is a mainstay of home remedies to increase eyelash length. First remove any eyeliner, eye shadow or mascara with a cotton ball, then apply petroleum jelly with a new mascara wand, or one that you have first cleaned well to remove any trace of the original product. recommends sleeping with the petroleum jelly on your eyelashes, but washing it off in the morning before you go about your day. For best results, repeat the treatment three times a week.

Lemon Olive Oil

Natural Home Remedies suggests enhancing the healthful properties of olive oil by soaking a lemon peel in a jar of oil for several days, then carefully applying the mixture to your lashes. Lemon is a mild natural antiseptic and antimicrobial agent, and may help promote healthier lashes.

Proper Diet

You can enrich your diet to make sure you are getting the right nutrients and vitamins to promote eyelash growth. Eyelashes are made of keratin, a type of protein, and can benefit from a diet that includes high-protein foods like meat, fish, chicken, soy and tofu. Vitamin A, essential to lash growth, is found in eggs, fish oil, and red, yellow and orange fruits, while citrus fruits, potatoes and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. Calcium, also essential for lashes, is found in milk, as well as in dark green leafy vegetables.


Step 1

Wash your face with your daily face wash and gently towel dry.

Step 2

Remove any eye makeup residue with eye makeup remover and a cotton ball. Doing so will help the castor oil-absorption process. Wait until your eyelids are completely dry before continuing.

Step 3
Dip a cotton swab into castor oil. Close your eyes and gently rub the swab over your eyelid near the lash line. Only use enough to coat the lash line, otherwise the oil may seep into your eyes.

Step 4

Allow the castor oil to absorb into your eyelid skin. Repeat every night and continue use, even after you begin to see results.

Step 5

Take vitamin supplements to promote general hair growth and proper nutrition. Vitamin E, C and B complex are beneficial to hair growth, including lashes, says Holistic Online.
