Don’t you just hate when you see someone with voluminous lashes? Well, they don’t even need mascara for help! You might wonder why we’re stressing on this — that’s because both eyelashes and eyebrows can effectively transform your look. But if you have sparse lashes and eyebrows, you can try out certain home remedies that can help you in a big way!

Yes, there are natural hacks that can help to accelerate hair growth. So instead of using eyelash extensions and pencils to darken eyebrows, switch to these DIY serums. These can be easily incorporated into your beauty regimen and can make your eyelashes longer and stronger.

Here are three natural DIY serums:
1. Rosemary eyelash growth serum

Rosemary is one such ingredient — an essential oil, which is known to improve blood circulation. That’s exactly why it is the perfect choice to improve the thickness of your hair. Similarly, rosemary also works to promote eyelash and eyebrow hair growth. In fact, it can also control your eyelash loss.

Ingredients you’ll need:


Castor oil

½ cup water

Here’s how you can use it:
  1. To make rosemary extract, take half a cup of water in a pan and add a small bunch of rosemary. Note: You can use dried rosemary too.
  2. Boil the water until rosemary leaves its colour in the water, reducing it to half.
  3. Now, switch off the gas and strain the water in a jar.
  4. Mix the castor oil in the jar, dip the mascara wand in this serum and apply gently on your eyelashes and eyebrows. Note: You can also use cotton balls to dab it around the eyelash and eyebrows.
2. Peppermint eyelash growth serum

Peppermint could potentially improve growth of eyelashes and eyebrows, and can also prevent hair from falling out. It is rich in iron, folate, potassium, and omega — all of which are essential for healthy hair growth.

Ingredients you’ll need:

Handful of peppermint leaves

4-5 drops of olive oil

Here’s you can use it:
  1. Take some water in a pan, add peppermint leaves and heat it, until it starts boiling.
  2. Add a few drops of olive oil and let it boil for five minutes.
  3. Bring down the heat to the lowest level, covering the pan for another two to three minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat. Remove the lid from the pan and allow this mixture to cool down. You’ll notice that the colour of the mixture has changed.
  5. Strain the water in a jar.

Apply the peppermint serum in the same manner, as we’ve mentioned above for rosemary serum.

3. Curry leaves eyelash growth serum

Curry leaves have been used in some cultures for hair health because they’re loaded with properties that can work wonders for your hair and lead to thick hair growth including the hair growth for eyelashes and eyebrows. They’re rich in antioxidants which can give you healthy and strong hair.

Ladies, remember one thing that for best results you need to use the serum two times a day or apply it before going to sleep and keep it overnight for thick and smooth eyelashes and eyebrows. Now choose the serum that suits you best.
