Do you have sparse, thin lashes? Are you tired of wearing false eyelashes that tend to damage your natural lashes in the long run? Then this DIY Eyelash Growth Serum is for you.
Little About Your Eyelashes
Sparse, thin lashes are caused by a broken communication between your dermal papilla and your lash follicles (the elongated tube via which your lash hair grows to the skin’s surface). Broken communication means that your lash cells (see Hair Growth Rate) are deprived of the necessary vitamins and minerals needed to boost their performance.
When this happens, the lashes becomes thin and unable to remain in the active phase for a long time, leading to lash breakage. So, you need to help restore the friendship between your dermal papilla and lash follicles by feeding your eyelashes with conditioning, moisturizing and lash growing ingredients I share in this short DIY.
Lash Growth Phases
Here the lash hair is growing for 30 to 45 days. At this phase, 40% upper lashes and 15% lower lashes are growing.
Also called the dormant phase, the lashes are done growing, switching over to being inactive.
Also called the shedding phase, the lashes have completed their 45 or more days in the catagen phase and are disconnected from the lash root waiting to be removed from the pack.
While the entire phase of scalp hair takes between 3 to 6 years, healthy lashes spend just 3 to 4 months to complete the three phases.
So, the role of a DIY eyelash growth serum is to extend the time your lashes spend in the anagen and catagen phases while conditioning, moisturizing, and helping them to grow longer and healthier.
