Hypotrichosis is the name for having inadequate or not enough lash, it also can cause brow hair to be sparse. Not caring for the lashes properly can also thin them, as can certain prescription medicines and dare I say so does the aging process! So, if you fall into one of these categories–or if you just think your brows and lashes are too thin–listen up.
Brow Boost by Billion Dollar Brows is the newest, most affordable and safest product on the market to grow lashes and brows, no prescription required! You can expect to grow lashes or brows in as little as 30 days and there are no harmful side affects, and it’s only $20!
Since we all want long, lush lashes, here’s a few killer ways to thicken them:
- Use a lash growth product like Brow Boost (you can use it for brows too).
- Dye your lashes (At Star Brows, you save when you do tinting (I use a vegetable dye) of brows or lashes with a facial or brow waxing service).
- Learn how to curl or thicken your lashes without the extra chemical agents. (Try Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler) To curl your lashes, take your eyelash curler and place it at the root of your lashes. Hold firmly for ten seconds and release. If your lashes are stick straight, you can move up slightly away from the roots, repeating the curl.
- Use a mineral Lash Primer. It conditions as it thickens.
- Use a clean disposable mascara wand to un-clump and separate as needed after the mascara application.
- Brush the roots of your lashes back and forth a couple of times before sweeping through to the tips.
- Choose the right mascara. I love Youngblood’s Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara!
- Toss your mascara every three months, this is the longest shelf life any tube of mascara has. If it starts getting gloppy use a baby wipe to clean off the mascara wand’s excess.
Note: You can temporarily treat hypotrichosis with an RX of Latisse, which is a drug used in the treatment of eye disorders. Their literature says that the eyelashes will go back to their former short/sparse selves within 1 month of discontinuing the product. There is also a risk of darkening around the surrounding skin which “may” go away after discontinued use, and the iris may have color changes as well, which will not reverse. Yeah, not a fan.
See you at the spa!
