Lets grow some long healthy lashes.. But how??

 

First, lets review the growth cycle of your eyelashes. It consists of three phases: catagen (the dormant stage), telogen (the shedding stage, where your lashes naturally fall out), and anagen (the growth phase).

 

There are a ton of natural ingredients (see: castor oilvitamin E, and coconut oil) that help hydrate and condition your lashes, but they won’t technically make them grow. “Lash conditioners may help strengthen lashes, prevent them from breaking, or lightly swell them so they look a little thicker,” says Dr. Haberman, but they’re not actually causing them to grow longer.

 

There’s actually only one FDA-approved eyelash growth serum..Latisse. Latisse was born, using the active ingredient called bimatoprost to help grow your existing lashes and stimulate the growth of new hairs in four to six weeks.

 

Some nonprescription lash serums actually do contain similar growth ingredients, such as isopropyl cloprostenate, but these aren’t FDA-regulated or approved.

 

When growing your lashes, you want to avoid anything that can stunt or damage the hairs. So, you know, all the usual things that can damage your eyelashes: false lashes, eyelash curlers, and not washing your face, leaving your mascara on overnight and constantly rubbing your eyes.

 

Growing long & healthy lashes requires specific ingredients. Below are some to look for and products I like are linked below.

 

I found it important to be consistent with product use. Just like anything consistency and patience is key! Also be aware of the ingredients in your lash primers and mascaras. I have found nourishing ones with oils the best. Also, I like to remove my mascara with a creamy or oil-based cleanser not makeup wipes! Really dissolve the mascara with a creamy or oil cleanser and use your fingers to gently roll the mascara off your lashes! Wipes and cotton pads can rip out your lashes. I promise you removing your mascara gently will help maintain the health of your lashes!

 

So be gentle, be consistent, be patient and use conditioning treatments and products and you will be on the road to longer lashes before you know it!

Treatments:

You can also contact us about our Lash Lifts. They will help your lashes look longer while you are trying to grow them longer. We like Ellebanna Lash Lifts because they contain keratin and biotin. We also incorporate Lash Botox: Lash Botox is a hydrolyzed keratin mask designed to specifically nourish and stimulate natural lash growth. … The Keratin is decreased into small particles in order to be absorbed by even the thinnest of lashes. The nourishing mask fills the natural lashes with keratin to make them smoother, thicker and fuller.

 

We recently added Lash Bomb to our services too: Ingredients 😍: Every step is meant to nourish and add moisture to the lashes ensuring your clients leave with and come back with healthy lashes.
Some ingredients include: cocoa butter, panthenol, vitamin b3, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and more!
