Long, thick eyelashes..who doesn’t want them? They are one of those essentials of timeless female beauty.
Some lucky ladies have them naturally, while others use a bit of help.
Nowadays there are more options than ever.
From mascaras that supersize your lashes, eyelash extensions that get glued to your natural lashes one by one, a set of falsies that can be easily removed after a night out or treatments that curl and dye your own lashes naturally – beautiful lashes seem to be everywhere!
Whether you go all natural or like to enhance your eyelashes, it’s good to give your lashes some special care, like you do with your hair.
One of the things you can do is use an eyelash serum with nourishing oils.
This DIY coconut oil eyelash serum enriched with castor oil and sweet almond oil contains a lot of nutrients and cell building blocks for healthy eyelashes.
It moisturizes, helps restore protein loss, stimulates hair growth, reduces breaking or falling out and strengthens your eyelashes.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients:
Coconut oil is rich in saturated fats; its fatty acids restore protein loss and stimulate hair growth. It is anti-microbial, strengthens the hair fibre and retains moisture.
Sweet almond oil is a rich source of vitamin E, magnesium, calcium and monounsaturated fats.
It nourishes the hair, softens the hair cuticles, which makes the lashes grow thicker and longer while helping reduce hair loss.
Castor oil consists of 90% ricinoleic acid, an omega 9 fatty acid that is believed to help reduce hair loss.
Using a nourishing oil treatment can help you grow healthier, longer and fuller lashes.
It will also give them a touch of gloss, making your eyes pop, while looking fresh and natural.
1 tbsp coconut oil

Pour the mixture into a roller bottle or other container that can be sealed and makes application easy.
Apply this DIY coconut oil eyelash serum at night before you go to sleep on clean eyelashes, so it can work throughout the night.
