Eyelash Growth DIY: 3 Homemade Eyelash Growth Serum Recipes

These recipes are super easy to whip up and will last you a really long time. Before we get started, here’s what you’ll need to make your own homemade eyelash growth serum:

  • Empty, reusable mascara tube and wand – shop it here!
  • The ingredients for your homemade eyelash growth serum

That’s it! Let’s get started…

1. Deep Nourishment Lash Growth Serum

This is the easiest eyelash condition you’ll ever make and it’ll help you thicken out your lashes within just a few weeks!

Here’s what you need:

  • Castor oil – shop it here! This thick, viscous oil is super rich in fatty acids, vitamin E and proteins. It gets deep into the hair follicles and your lashes will drink it right in for instant hydration and nourishment. It’s been used since ancient times to prevent baldness and will help plump up your lash line.
  • Coconut oil – shop it here! This yummy-smelling oil is full of nourishing vitamins and fatty acids that bind to the protein in lashes to protect both the roots and strands. The fatty acids found in coconut oil are mostly lauric acid, which also comes with antifungal and antibacterial properties that’ll protect your eyelashes from falling prey to infections that limit hair growth.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Pour equal parts castor oil and coconut oil into your empty mascara container.
  2. Close the tube and shake it to mix the formula.
  3. Dip the mascara wand into this DIY lash growth serum and gently brush it onto your lashes from root to tip – use just a small amount because the castor oil is quite heavy and can weigh down your lashes.

2. Big Boost of Lash Growth Serum

This recipe takes things up a notch by adding a few all natural lash growth ingredients that give your lashes a huge boost.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Argan oil – shop it here! Argan oil is chock full of antioxidants like Vitamin E (which is also an amazing moisturizer) as well as essential fatty acids which nourish, hydrate and promote healthy lash growth. This rich oil is especially great for reversing the damage done through harsh chemicals (lash glue and mascaras) and research shows that argan oil can even promote faster, longer hair growth!
  • Liquid biotin – shop it here! Know why Biotin is called Vitamin H? Well, the “h” in Vitamin H actually stems  from the German words Haar and Haut that mean “hair and skin.” Yes, that’s how good this vitamin is for all things hair (and skin). It’s an especially beneficial lash growth ingredient to have if your lashes are prone to thinning, breakage and brittleness – biotin will nip that in the bud!

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Pour argan oil into your empty mascara tube.
  2. Drop in around 5 to 10 drops of liquid biotin.
  3. Seal and shake the tube to mix well.
  4. Dip the mascara wand into this DIY lash growth serum and gently brush it onto your lashes from root to tip.

3. Sweet Strength Lash Growth Serum

You should be warned – this DIY lash growth serum is amazing for strengthening and lengthening lashes…but it’s not the sweetest-smelling thing around.

Neem oil has tons of beauty benefits – like promoting faster natural lash growth – but it does not smell very good. I personally find the smell terrible but its lash growth perks more than make up for its lack of yummy-scentedness.

Now that you’re in the know, on with the show…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Neem oil – shop it here! Neem oil is one of the best oils for eyelash growth, period. Actually, it’s great for all kinds of hair growth, that’s why you’ll find it in pretty much every hair loss/hair growth shampoo there is. It’s rich in fatty acids like linoleic and oleic acids that deep condition and moisturize dry, brittle lashes back to health and it has regenerative properties that support healthy hair cells and stimulate hair follicle growth and function.
  • Sweet Almond Oil – shop it here! Light and lovely, sweet almond oil is the perfect oil to mix with Neem. It’s also super rich in monosaturated fatty acids, lash-growth-boosting Vitamin E, and even growth promoting calcium. It’ll moisturize and deep hydrate your lash hair follicles and prevent against them breaking off and falling out!

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Pour a 70:30 mixture of sweet almond oil to neem oil into your empty mascara tube.
  2. Seal and shake to mix well.
  3. Dip the mascara wand into this DIY lash growth serum and gently brush it onto your lashes from root to tip.

Use any of the above DIY lash growth serums daily!

Note: The above DIY lash growth serums are great for growing healthy lashes but if you’re looking for much longer length and thickness, these won’t do the trick. These point of these lash conditioners is not so much to provide eyelash growth, but to nourish, moisturize, and restore your eyelashes to health.

For dramatically longer lashes? Choose one of the best eyelash growth serums.

I personally use these DIY eyelash conditioners along with a potent eyelash growth serum. They each serve a different purpose and together, I think they do the best work 😉

Whoops, when you did a copy & paste, you kept the phrase ‘use just a small amount because the castor oil is quite heavy and can weigh down your lashes.’ (emphasis mine) on all three descriptions…

I’m personally a great fan of castor oil for the eyelashes (and yes, I’ve used olive oil as well, but olive oil is acid and irritates the eyes if not applied with extreme care). Argan oil is a nice idea, and I have it around here as well; I wonder if mixing argan + castor oil will make a difference?
