The best oils for the growth of eyebrows and eyelashes
A mischievous look from under thick eyelashes is an old female weapon. Eyebrows also play a role in the enchantment: they will coquettishly lift themselves, or ironically bend. However, nature does not reward luxurious hairs in the eye area. So women have to build up, constantly tint and curl eyelashes. For the sake of thick sable eyebrows, which are now in vogue, girls resort to tattooing.
The result of such procedures is sad: the hairs become thinner, discolored, do not grow and fall out. Save them can natural care product — oil for eyelashes and eyebrows.
The hairs growing in the eye area are called bristly and are the strongest. Unlike those on the head, they grow several times slower and stop growing at a certain length. Both eyelashes and eyebrows are 97% keratin.
The growth of hair rods provide bulbs, lying in the skin at a depth of 2 mm. Upper lashes grow in 2-4 rows. In length, they reach 1.2 cm. On the lower eyelid there can be one or two rows of hairs. The length of these eyelashes does not exceed 0.8 cm. On average, the life of the hairs in the eye zone lasts 3–5 months.
Genes are responsible for the color, length, thickness and bending of the eyelashes. Heredity dictated the shape and thickness of the eyebrows. At the same time, these hairs are very “responsive”: with proper care, their length and thickness increase by 10–30%. This happens due to the strengthening and stimulation of the growth of existing hair rods.
It is possible to care for eyelashes and eyebrows by infusions of medicinal herbs: cornflower, sage, calendula. It is useful from time to time to impose on the eyelids cotton pads soaked in warm green or black tea. Such compresses not only strengthen eyelashes, but also tone up the skin around the eyes. Daily massage helps to accelerate hair growth in the eyebrow zone.
But the most effective remedy is vegetable oil. The fatty acids contained in it enclose each hair with a protective film. This coating does not let the water in, holding it inside the hair shaft. In addition, the oil smoothes the cuticle scales. As a result — the eyelashes cease to thin and break, discolor. Oils are rich in tocopherols — antioxidant vitamins. They contain a lot of beta-carotene — provitamin A, which stimulates hair growth.
