It is impossible to pinpoint to a single reason as to the loss of eyelashes. For some, it is the autoimmune disorders that lead to the falling of hair from the body including that of the eyelashes. There are some disorders making people to scratch the eyes due to irritation resulting in the loss of eyelashes. Whatever the reasons be, people suffering from the loss of eyelashes can take comfort in the knowledge that eyelashes can be grown back. Long eyelashes are typically attached to the notion of feminine beauty. It takes almost two months for the eyelash to grow back once it has fallen or is plucked out.
There are many natural as well as artificial methods available for growing eyelashes or elongating them. The most effective and simple way is to consume a healthy diet rich in multivitamins. The hair on your body is an indicator of your health. There are natural lubricants such as castor oil and olive oil which can induce the growth of eyelashes. It has to be carefully applied on to the eyelashes because there is a chance of it getting messed up. You can spread the oil before going to sleep and wash them off when you wake up the next day.
It has been reported over and again that trimming the eyelashes would induce its growth. But care has to be taken that you trim it only from the tip. In case you are not confident of getting it done by yourself, you can get professional help. Compressing the eyelids with an eye lotion is also found to be effective in stimulating the growth of eyelashes. The eye lotion can be made from home too using natural ingredients like cornflowers, calendula and others which you feel is good for the growth.
Spreading Vaseline on to the eyelashes with brush is another effective option. The brush has to be maintained neat and tidy so that you will not contract any infection or irritation later. Another popular and quick option is mascara. Though mascara is the quick-fix solution to give your eyelashes a longer-than-usual appearance, it is said to contain certain substances with lash-growth enhancing properties. The lash accelerator contains conditioners and proteins that can facilitate the growth of eyelashes.
