EYELASH FACTS YOU DIDN’T KNOW
WHAT ARE EYELASHES MADE OUT OF?
Your lashes are made up of 97% keratin and 3% water.
Keratin is a form of protein that makes up the vast majority of our hair structure and helps to protect the epithelial cells from damage or stress. Therefore it’s no surprise that using keratin treatments help to strengthen and keep hair shiny.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL LIFESPAN OF YOUR LASHES?
Your eyelashes go through a three-phase growth cycle, which typically lasts around 90 days!! They go through three stages during this growth cycle: the active growth period, transitional period and resting period.
HOW MANY LASHES DO I LOOSE PER DAY?
There’s nothing more unsettling than taking off your makeup to find that some of your eyelashes have come away with it. DO NOT PANIC. This is a completely normal phase of your eyelash growth. On average, you will loose around 1-5 lashes per day in order to make room for brand new lashes.
HOW LONG CAN LASHES ACTUALLY GROW?
The average lash length is around 10mm, but the longest lash on record fluttered at 6.99cm!!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR EYELASHES TO GROW BACK?
For each lash lost, it takes between 4-8 weeks for a new one to grow back to its full length.
HOW MANY LASHES DO I HAVE?
Typically, you have between 150-200 lashes on your upper lid and around 100 lashes on your lower lid.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Keep your lashes in tip-top condition by feeding them with nourishing ingredients…
Biotin (Vitamin B7) is the best ingredient to keep your hair thick and healthy. Biotin helps to break down proteins, meaning it’s a crucial ingredient for strengthening the structure of both hair and nails. Biotin also helps to speed up hair growth, meaning you can replenish those lashes that have gone walkies much quicker.
Keratin is the protein that strengthens the hair and keeps it looking shiny and healthy. A good dose of keratin on your eyelashes will help prevent them from falling out and allow them to reach their maximum growing potential.
Caffeine – even your lashes need their morning coffee-hit. Caffeine can help to promote hair growth straight from the root in the initial phases of hair growth. It helps to increase blood circulation which will help to support healthy, active hair follicles.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to boost collagen, which is not only important for hair growth, but also the strength of your hair, meaning those lashes on your peepers will not give up without a fight!
Vitamin A is essential for the health of your hair. Many hair loss treatments contain Vitamin A as it is thought to stimulate hair growth and keep the hair follicles moist, meaning hair is less likely to fall out.
Magnesium and Calcium both help to activate the growth of enzymes. Magnesium helps to dissolve calcium ions that can block hair follicles, making room for hair growth.
Omega 3 helps to give moisture to the skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen and strong elastin fibres.
Zinc – a Zinc deficiency can cause hair loss, even on your lashes!
Vitamin D helps to stimulate hair follicles to grow, so if you are deficient in Vitamin D, your hair may struggle to grow very quickly.
