Beauty 101: DIY Eyebrow and Lash Serum

Eyebrows and lashes add definition to the face and can make a big difference in ones appearance. For all of you that lack in this department I am presenting you with an Eyebrow and Lash Growth Serum that aids with hair growth and helps you achieve healthier and thicker hair.

Read on to find out how to make your eyebrows and lashes grow fuller faster.

What you’ll need:

  • Castor Oil/ Ricinus Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Ozonated Olive Oil
  • 1 Aloe Vera Leaf or a few drops of Aloe Vera Gel

A breakdown of the ingredients and their benefits:

Castor oil, also known under the name of Ricinus Oil is derived from the seeds or beans of castor oil plants and contains important nutrients like vitamin E, omega-6 fatty acids, important minerals, and proteins. These components help thicken thin hairs and promote natural hair growth.

Coconut oil similarly also contains vitamin E but also vitamin K and iron which can aid with hair growth and thickness. It is also very nourishing and therefore keeps your hair healthy and moisturised.

Ozonated Olive Oil is optional for the serum depending on your needs. It helps supply your lash and eyebrow hair follicles with oxygen which has healing properties. Oxygen supply is especially crucial if you wear eyebrow make up or mascara for prolonged periods which can lead to hair loss in the long term.

Aloe Vera contains proteolytic enzymes which can revive dead skin cells for added hair growth. It also soothes any redness and inflammation.

The tutorial is extremely simple: Fill up your container with 1/3 of Castor Oil, 1/3 of Coconut Oil and 1/3 of Ozonated Olive Oil ( vitamin E oil works as well) and add a few drops of Aloe Vera from your leaf or gel.

To prepare the Aloe Vera gel simply slice the leaf in the middle like pictured below and scrape off the gel-like juice into a container.

After doing this, I took my pipette to add the gel to my oil mixture and shook up my container to mix the ingredients.

To apply the finished serum I dabbed it onto my brows and lashline very carefully using my index finger. You can also apply it using a clean mascara wand or spoolie if that makes it easier for you.

DIY Eyebrow Lash Growth SerumI myself have been growing out my eyebrows for two months now. The whole process of growing them out takes about three months, which is the length of the hair growth cycle for eyebrows and eyelashes. I already noticed my lashes getting longer and fuller as well as my eyebrows thickening. It might take some time to see more dramatic results but I advise you to stay patient and apply the serum regularly.

I hope you liked this quick tutorial. Let me know how the serum works for you and if you have any other eyebrow or lash growth tricks I need to try. I hope you get inspired!
