Can Olive Oil Make Your Lashes Grow Longer?

Results of olive oil on eye lashes

Extra virgin olive oil is the first oil that is released when olives are pressed, and so is more pure and more concentrated. Olive oil is not just a great way to cook your food, however, but is also a very important natural beauty aid. Olive oil can add shine to dull hair and can moisturize skin, but the real impact comes from its effectiveness as an eyelash enhancer.

Extra virgin olive oil[1] can not only help your eyelashes become stronger and shinier, but can help them grow as well. This may seem like a bold statement, but according to eyelash enhancer reviews, olive oil can treat thin or fragile eyelashes and can strengthen the follicle to create a stronger and longer lash in a way that is comparable to expensive purchased brands. While olive oil may not be able to actually stimulate faster growth, as an eyelash enhancer, there are few products that can do a better job that this humble common kitchen oil.

As people age, or if they have poor diet or health, their hair follicles become weak and the hair shafts will become brittle, causing the hairs to break off short and become unsightly. This is true for body and facial hair as well as head hair. However, you can easily brush olive oil on your lashes top and bottom and within a few weeks experience a marked improvement in the overall quality and length of the lash. Olive oil is a mild oil that will moisturize the eyelash from top to bottom and can prevent the lash from breaking. This allows your lashes to grow to their ultimate potential.

Benefits of olive oil

Eyelash enhancer products may not be all that they are cracked up to be; some over the counter and even prescription products can actually cause more damage than anything else, so it is always a good idea to stick with the most natural products that simply don’t have the horrible side effects[2] of other products. If your eyelashes don’t bring attention to your gorgeous peepers, you need to start a regiment to improve the lash health as well as the length. Apply the olive oil twice a day for six weeks and you will see the difference. Always use care and don’t get the oil in the eyes or tear ducts, and stop using it if you notice any irritation to the skin and eyes. Otherwise, enjoy this natural remedy that can help you get the great lashes you’ve always wanted.
