Eyelashes Life Circle
[Read here the Part I for more info] The upper lid has approximately 120 lashes and the down lid approximately 80. The most lashes can grow 1cm long so do not expect to grow your eyelashes 5 cm but is possible to have noticeable results. In case that you have fallouts, do not be stressed! Because, they can grow back naturally within 1-2 months. But if you will follow my hacks they will grow back quicker. Eyelashes have a life circle of (appp.) 144 – 170 days, but they grow naturally in the first 40 days. [Read here the Part I for more info]
Hack #4 – DIY Recipe
1 egg white
1 teaspoon of Aloe Vera Gel
Firstly, I was taking 1 egg white along with 1 teaspoon of fresh aloe vera gel and whisking them together until the mixture was well combined. Secondly, I was applying a bit of this mixture right before bed and I was keeping the rest in the fridge for maximum 1-2 days.
Note that my lashes were stronger within (approximately) 2 weeks, but I didn’t have any tremendous results in contrast with the Hack #1 – Vaseline (read it here).
Egg whites – This messy ingredient is packed with full of proteins that helps eyelashes to grow faster and stronger. Moreover, it improves their elasticity, heals the damaged lashes and makes them shinier.
Aloe Vera – Contains proteolytic enzymes that stimulate eyelashes growth. As a matter of fact, it has the ability to control damaged lashes and heal them. Moreover, Aloe is high in protein, vitamins, and minerals that nourish eyelashes follicles. Not only it gives a lot of nutrients, but also hydration to lashes that helps them to grow faster and stronger.
Hack #5 – DIY Eyelashes Serum
1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin E (you can buy it here)
1/2 teaspoon of Argan Oil (you can buy it here)
1/2 teaspoon of Almond Oil (you can buy it here)
1 teaspoon of Castor Oil (you can buy it here)
I found somewhere on Pinterest the above diagram; (click here to visit diybeautytips.com and read the initial post) so I took an empty mascara bottle and I followed the instructions. Further, I was applying the serum right before bed and before I was going to start my makeup, in order to be able to absorb the goodies and vitamins before I was going to apply my mascara.
Additionally, I have to tell you that I also prevent them from falling out due to dryness that is happening with the mascara application;

Hack #6 – 2 Steps Procedure
In contrast, with the other hacks, I had the best and less messy results with Hack #1 and Hack #2. So I thought that applying castor oil at night (10-30 minutes before bed) with a gentle finger massage in order to increase their blood circulation and have even better and faster results and right before bed, to applying Vaseline that I am gonna have the best of the best results. I was right! The results were just unbelievable amazing from the first 2 days! My eyelashes were not only stronger and thicker, but also more pigmented and longer with enough fewer fallouts!
Hack #7 – Olive Oil
However, I do not recommend this hack but I have to tell you about it. This is one of the best hacks but unfortunately the messiest and the worst at the same time! Furthermore, Olive oil contains vitamin E which make it very powerful for the reason that we need it now. Moreover, I seen results within a week (they were stronger and more pigmented). I was applying a really tiny-tiny bit amount on my eyelashes right before bed but the olive oil, was finding, every time, a way to go in my eyes (even if I had them closed). Unfortunately, it was hurting me badly. As a result, I had to stopped this hack too soon.
