Growing long beautiful lashes and full brows can totally be a hairy situation (ba-dum-chh)! 🙄 But really- growing out your brows can take some serious sacrifice and long lashes are just everyone’s desire! If you’re looking for longer lashes, fuller brows, or INCHES on ya head then I’ve got a solution for you! This easy-peasy DIY eyelash serum will get you the kinda inches you really wanna see and can be made with 3 simple ingredients!
To throw this hair, brow, and lash serum together you’ll need rosemary oil, castor oil, and aloe vera. Before we get started throwing junk on our faces, let’s talk about it!
Rosemary oil is packed full of goodness for your locks and it’s vital in this recipe! It’s pretty easy to find at any vitamin shop- you might even luck out at a nicely stocked Target! (look with their essential oils around/near beauty and naturals!) This little magic guy will help strengthen your hair to prevent damage from brushing, slows baldness and graying, and it helps stimulate hair growth at the roots! This will help your lashes grow long and strong. If you aren’t using rosemary oil on your hair yet, then ya need to start! You can add a few drops to your shampoo for a daily boost.
Castor oil has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties for a healthy scalp- plus a high protein content and antioxidants that promote keratin! That may sound like a bunch of mumble- but basically it will keep your skin healthy and create thick hair and lashes that grow smooth and strong, minus the frizz! Castor oil also has a super high content of ricinoleic acid, which is a fatty acid your hair just loves! Basically all your desires is one (super thick) oil. You may be recognizing a few of these ingredients from our DIY Hair Mask– but that’s cuz they’re SO good for your hair!
Aloe Vera is one of those does-it-all kinda plants that you have to keep in your arsenal! There are so many health and beauty benefits in this guy- but today we talkin’ hair growth! Aloe has special enzymes that help keep your scalp and hair follicles healthy at the root. Healthy roots means faster growth! The proteins, vitamins, and moisture in aloe will help condition your hair and strengthen it against fall out.
Get in the Mix!
To whip up this daily-use serum, combine 10 drops of rosemary oil with 1 tbs of castor oil and 1 tbs of aloe vera! You can make larger doses by doubling or tripling up the ingredients. Store your DIY eyelash serum in an airtight container and shake it up before use! You can apply to your brows and lashes with a qtip. To avoid contaminating your whole batch, try not to double dip (do what you want your chips but keep those eyes healthy)! Apply in the evenings to clean brows and lashes- to avoid getting the product in your eyes, I recommend applying to the lid of your eye at the lash base and not the waterline. You can also use this bi-weekly on your whole head of hair to get longer, stronger, beautiful locks!
