How to Thicken Your Eyelashes Naturally

Eyes are windows to souls and the eyelashes serve as window decorations. Thick, long lashes have always been taken as a symbol of beauty, but not everybody is blessed with naturally lush lashes. Are you also worried about your thin eyelashes or scanty growth? Stop worrying. Growing lustrous and voluminous lashes is no more something impossible. Eyelash Hair Transplant is there to help you get your desired eyelash thickness and length. But why go for the expensive surgical procedure when you can thicken your eyelashes naturally and safely in the privacy of your home. The ingredients required to grow lashes thick and long are right there in your kitchen cabinet or pantry.


Here are some time-tested home remedies to thicken your eyelashes naturally.

  1. Castor Oil:

Castor oil is a powerful follicle stimulant. This natural oil nourishes the hair follicles thus allowing you to enjoy desired eyelash length and density. Apply unprocessed castor oil onto your eyelashes before going to bed every day. Use a mascara brush to apply oil but if you don’t have one, use cotton swab. To enhance its efficacy, add a few drops of vitamin E oil to the castor oil and apply it to the lashes. Leave it one overnight and rinse off in the morning with lukewarm water.

  1. Olive Oil:

Olive oil is an age old DIY remedy for enhancing eyelash and eyebrow hair growth. Rich in Vitamin E, olive oil nourishes your eyelashes and adds volume to them. Carefully apply lukewarm olive oil on your eyelashes using an old, clean mascara brush or cotton swab. Leave it on overnight and then wash off the next morning using lukewarm water. Repeat this remedy daily for 2-3 months until you get desired length and thickness. You can also use this indefinitely to keep your lashes dense and dark.

  1. Aloe Vera:

Aloe vera gel has countless health benefits, hair regrowth being one of them. Besides being a natural moisturizer, it is also rich in enzymes required for stimulating hair growth. Simply apply freshly squeezed aloe gel onto your eyelashes before going to bed every night and wash off in the morning. Alternatively, mix two tablespoons of fresh aloe vera gel with an equal amount of castor oil. Apply the mixture to the eyelashes using a mascara brush or cotton swab before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and wash your face as usual in the morning. Repeat this daily for 8 to 10 weeks to see any improvement.

  1. Lemon Peels:

Lemon peels can also be used for enhancing eyelash thickness. Rich in vitamin B and C, lemon peels nourish eyelashes and promote healthy hair growth. Take one tablespoon of dried lemon peels in a clean container with airtight lid. Pour enough castor oil or enough oil into it and let the lemon peels soak into it for a couple of weeks. Apply this oil on your eyelashes daily before going to bed. Allow it to sit overnight and then rinse off in the morning using lukewarm water. Repeat this remedy daily for a few months to see any improvement.

  1. Green Tea:

Another really effective, time tested home remedy for lustrous and voluminous eyelashes is green tea. Flavonoids present in green tea stimulate hair growth, allowing you to enjoy longer and thicker eyelashes within a few months. Prepare a cup of unsweetened green tea and allow it to cool to room temperature. Apply brewed tea on your eyelashes using a clean, old mascara stick or cotton swab. Wait for 20 to 25 minutes and then rinse off with cool water. Repeat this twice daily for 2-3 months to get encouraging results.

Eyelash Hair Transplant:

All of the aforementioned natural remedies have proven effects but they need time and patience to deliver. Also their effectiveness varies from person to person and you may not get exactly what you want. For permanent and timely results, an Eyelash Hair Transplant may be worth considering.
