We all had those days when we over-plucked our eyebrows and ended up with sharp and straight lines of hair that are barely visible.
Lucky for you girls now that I am sharing with you an easy DIY which will give your brows length and volume. It works just as great for eyelashes too. You won’t need false eyelashes and expensive brow liners after this.
I wish I had an older sister to give me a perfect solution in those awkward situations.. sigh*
This DIY is inexpensive, super easy and quick. You can call it ‘Brow/Lash Growth Serum‘. Give it a fancy name to make it more magical because let’s admit it.. if some lotion potion can grow my eyebrows and eyelashes, it’s pretty magical!
And all you need is 2 ingredients…
All You Need:
- Castor Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Disposable mascara wand or Q-tip works as well
The castor oil makes hair thicker and the coconut oil lengthens hair.
First, I mix the oils in equal parts in my palm. You can mix it in a small bowl but I get lazy sometimes :/
Then I just dip the wand in and apply it on my brows and lashes. Do this every night before you go to bed until you get desired results.
I did this years ago when I was in 9th or 10th grade for 3-4 weeks. It worked really great for me. I remember a few of my friends asking me how my lashes grew so long and I was like.. pfft I woke up like this. HA!
Just kidding.. I told them my secret and they started doing it too every night and they were really happy with the results.
Below are the before and after pictures. I feel embarassed showing my old pic but anything for you guys xx You can’t really see difference in eye lashes but there’s a huge difference in eyebrows.
The before picture was taken in 2010 before I tried this DIY and the after picture was taken in 2014 (recently). But of course, it didn’t take me 4 years to see this difference. It took only around 3-4 weeks! And I am not wearing any brow makeup in the after picture.
Since then my lashes and brows stayed pretty long and thick! I never had to re-do this whole process. But once in a while I just apply it as a pampering session. Although those sessions only happen once in a blue moon.
I hope this will help in those panic situations when some of us tend to over-pluck the brows.
Do you have embarrassing old pictures of the horrendous deeds of past?
