Hi lovelies!! I know today’s post has been longgg awaited by some of you. So, let’s jump right into it. I have had lash extensions on and off for a few years. I love the ease of them and love the shape they give my eyes! Well, I dabbled with the idea of getting them put on before I had Tatum but went back and forth because I knew they would cause my natural lashes some damage. Well, I decided last minute to have them put on (like went in the morning I was set to be induced, haha!) but it was seriously the best decision for me!
Having a newborn is anything but easy, but add a busy toddler and you’ve reallllly got your hands full! I have always loved getting ready, putting on make-up, and just making myself feel good, but being sleep deprived and sooo busy you don’t get much time for yourself. My lashes helped me feel a little more put together and pretty on those days that I just couldn’t find the time to get completely ready.
Fast forward 7 months and I still had them because I loved them so much! I was starting to get annoyed with them + having to go every few weeks to have them refilled, so I decided it was time to take a break! My natural lashes were definitely damaged- they were stubby and thin and I was pretty sure it would be a longggg road to recovery. Well, I found a magic combo that I think truly works wonders! My lashes were back to long, healthy, and thick in just three weeks. I am SO happy with the results that I just had to share. Now, this is not sponsored at all. I bought these products on my own + researched and researched tons of reviews. I am obviously not a doctor so make sure to check with yours if you are pregnant or nursing!
How To Grow Your Lashes Back After Lash Extensions:
And now I give you the two products that work amazing together! I first ordered and started using this lash serum. It was a little pricey, but so is going to get a fill every few weeks so I bit the bullet and just ordered it. In just a week I could tell a noticeable difference in the length of my lashes. They were definitely longer, but still so thin and sad looking.
So I took to the internet and found this amazing stuff! I have always heard that castor oil could be used for lash/hair growth but this stuff really caught my eye because it was made specifically for hair growth. In the description it shares that it can be used to “grow long and lush lashes” + “hydrate & strengthen” and that is totally what I think my lashes needed! So every night I would apply my neuLash to my lash line and then would use the castor oil blend and I would repeat applying to my lash line + brushing through my lashes with a clean brush. My lashes are now sooo thick and long and I am seriously impressed with both of these products! I now only use the products once or twice a week to maintain, but it really only took about 3-4 weeks of consistent use to see a very noticeable difference!
Would I ever get lash extensions again? Probably. I will probably always get them before having more babies, just for the convenience of them. I really do love eyelash extensions and love the look of them. But if you are looking for a more affordable option for gorgeous, lush lashes- this combo is so good!
Also, just a note that this mascara is the one I’ve been using for top lashes! It’s ahhhmazing and affordable! I don’t love bottom mascara and like very little, so this mascara is great because it has a tiny comb that applies mascara to the bottom lashes perfectly. I hope this post was informative and helpful- Xo!
