An introduction to eyelash hypotrichosis and why women are trying to grow longer eyelashes.

What causes eyelash hypotrichosis?


  • Summary: Eyelash hypotrichosis is defined as having lower than average length, thickness, and/or a number of eyelashes. Causes of eyelash hypotrichosis include hereditary, aging, chemotherapy, medical treatment, eye surgery, and physical trauma.

    • Physiologically, during the period of pre-menopause in women density of estrogen in the blood lowers with the natural rise of androgen concentration, which might be the cause of androgenic hair loss. 

There are lots of “tips” on how to grow your eyelashes online. Some of them definitely have no scientific evidence behind it at all and some of them are just commercial advertising, so it would be great to get some professional opinions on them.

A brief introduction to the doctor: Dr. Sandy Skotnicki https://g.co/kgs/8fmqtJ 



prevalent tips for growing eyelashes on the Internet 


1 Coconut oil 


Online sources: Not only is coconut oil nutritious, it is also a miracle product for your body, especially as a treatment for dry hair and dry skin. Its natural properties hydrate and encourage growth in hair, and I recently found out that the same principle applies to eyelashes. So I got myself some virgin 100% organic coconut oil to find out what the fuss is about.

What does the doctor say?

“There is no scientific data to support the use of coconut for prevention of eyelash loss or to help the eyelashes grow longer. Applying vaseline around the eyes can cause inflammation/irritation for some people”


2. Castor oil


What does the doctor say?

it is really the only herbal treatment shown in limited research to potentially improve hair loss and women use it for regrowing eyelashes and eyebrows.


3. Cutting eyelashes so that it will grow stronger and longer 


What does the doctor say?

 “There is no data on this.” 



Medical Treatments for Eyelash Growth


  1. Bimatoprost  (Latisse)

Approved source Hair follicles have a cyclical behavior pattern. The growth phase of the eyelash lasts approximately 30 days. Although the exact mechanism is unknown, it is believed that Latisse increases the proportion of hair follicles in the growth phase of the hair cycle.

The most common side effects include an itching sensation, eye redness, skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. While very infrequent, increased brown iris pigmentation of the colored part of the eye has occurred, which is likely to be permanent. 


http://www.latisse.com/SafetyAndSideEffects.aspx,Latisse prescribing information

    • The most common side effects after using LATISSE® solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. This was reported in approximately 4% of patients in the clinical study. LATISSE® solution may cause other less common side effects, which typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE®


    • is applied or in the eyes. These include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes and redness of the eyelids.
    • This is one of the most common questions I get asked. LATISSE® use may cause increased brown iris pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely to be permanent. While very infrequent, increased iris pigmentation has occurred when LATISSE® solution was administered. Do not apply LATISSE® in your eye or to the lower lid. Ask your doctor for complete application instructions.

What does our doctor say?

It’s “clinically proven”. Latisse or the drug Bimatoprost can thicken and lengthen fine hairs – eyelashes and in some cases eyebrows when used regularly. This is because the hair follicle stays in a growth cycle for a longer period of time before it is shed.


Non-medical options to boost eyelash appearance

  1. Extension 

Online source: A basic set (typically 70 to 80 lashes per eye) can range anywhere from $100 to $400 and because eyelashes grow and eventually fall out, you’ve got to go back every few weeks for fill-ins, which can cost anywhere from $50 to $165, depending on how many new lashes you need.

What does the doctor say?

Eyelash extensions can damage the natural lash. some women may be allergic to or develop an allergy to the adhesive that is used.

2. Lash-boosting mascara Mascara 

Online Source: A blend of arginine, acid proteins, and Pro-Vitamin B5, etc helps eyelashes grow.

What does the doctor say?

“There is no scientific evidence to back them up.”



There are too many unverified “facts” floating on the internet. It’s always advised to consult a “true” doctor online or offline.


Additional Q&A to Consider

  1. In terms of diet, what can we do to naturally grow stronger, fuller lashes? What foods should we be eating, and what in those foods is helping hair growth? How does that process work?


What does the doctor say?

From review article on supplements and hair growth https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6380979/#

Eyelashes are continuously lost and replaced.  The growth phase is typically around 3 months and then the hair follicle sheds the hair and a new one grows.  A diet with supplements that help with hair growth would be beneficial, but the science is scant. 

Unfortunately, there is a lot of information on the internet about biotin in the diet (eggs are high in biotin) as well as biotin supplements for hair growth – but there is little scientific evidence that biotin improves hair growth in normal individuals. 

There is some evidence that selenium may help hair growth.  A study showed newly forming hairs take up selenium after receiving trace elements in the blood.  Brazil nuts are rich in selenium.  But too much selenium can make hair brittle.

Vitamin D can be helpful in patients who have hair shedding on the scalp.  The research is unclear for eyelashes.  Foods high in vitamin D include fatty fish, beef liver, cheese and mushrooms.

At the present time there is insufficient research to suggest zinc, riboflavin, folic acid or Vit B 12 rich foods help with hair growth. 

  1. How can makeup affect the health of our lashes? What steps can we take to prevent negative effects, and are there specific ingredients we should avoid? Are there any types of makeup or ingredients that are healthful for our lashes? 

What does the doctor say?

Mascara can damage the eyelashes if not removed nightly and it builds up.  It can lead to loss of eyelashes.  Using eyelash curlers that are not cleaned can also lead to loss as the eyelashes can stick.   I counsel to avoid extensions; the glue can lead to loss of natural eyelashes and at times allergic reactions.  Some oils can moisturise the eyelashes like castor oil but there is no evidence they lead to increased growth.

  1. Why is using an eyelash comb important? What does an eyelash comb actually do in terms of making your lashes more luscious?

What does the doctor say?

I would not say they are vital to the eyelash health, but they can impart a bit of a curl and help separate lashes for easier application of mascara. 

  1. What should we avoid if we want to naturally grow thicker, longer lashes? Why?

What does the doctor say?

Trauma to the eyelashes via curlers and mascara that is not removed regularly.  Wearing waterproof mascara routinely which is harder to remove again can lead to trauma and loss of eyelashes. 

  1. How effective are the following home remedies to apply to the eyelashes for growth? Which ones might actually help, and which ones should be avoided?

What does the doctor say?


Moisturizing your eyelashes just like your hair can make it more subtle and if it is less dry or brittle will keep it healthier.  Avoid products with a multitude of ingredients that could irritate the delicate eye area.  Castor oil is a good option for moisturizer.

Facts, tips and authority information on Hair Health part 2


Welcome to our blog thank you for your visits, like and share so many of you have been with us for so many years we very grateful for it, thank you from all of us.

On week 64 we are sharing some suggestions on how to help your hair and we are doing other research to share. We receive many questions and requests to share our findings  and here we go

Biotin, also referred to as vitamin H, is a type of B complex vitamin that occurs naturally in a variety of common foods. The optimum amount of biotin aids in the metabolization of fatty acids and amino acids. Research also suggests its role in the stabilization of blood sugar levels. Biotin also promotes hair health and this idea has its roots in science. Biotin deficiency is characterized by symptoms of unexplained hair breakage and hair loss along with cracked and brittle nails. Hence, there is a common belief that taking extra biotin will result in healthier hair.


How Does Biotin Work for Hair Growth?


Hair growth and biotin are related closely. Biotin not only promotes healthy hair growth but also prevents hair dryness. Moreover, biotin also increases the elasticity of the cortex of the hair, thereby, preventing and minimizing hair breakage. Therefore, biotin helps induce the growth of both hair and new skin cells and making them healthy. For people who are suffering from hair loss, taking extra biotin may aid their hair to grow longer, healthier and thicker.


Should You Take Biotin for Hair Growth?

Deficiency of biotin is not commonly encountered, it can definitely develop in individuals who intake alcohol in excessive amounts or who eat large quantities of raw egg white the second is not something that happens on an average don’t you agree?. Biotin needs are also increased in conditions such as infant seborrheic dermatitis and genetic disorders or in people whose stomach has been surgically removed.

You should always consult your doctor in case you develop any symptoms that indicate biotin deficiency which can produce the following symptoms: hair thinning, red scaly rash specifically around nose, eyes, and mouth, tiredness, tingling in arms and legs, depression and hallucinations as symptoms.


Where Can You Get Biotin for Hair Growth?

Biotin is naturally present in many foods such as halibut, eggs and dairy, products, carrots, Swiss chard, liver and kidney, nuts, some soy, vegetables, fruits, beans, and mushrooms, to mention a few.

Ideally, you should obtain your daily requirement of biotin from the diet versus man-made supplements that you may not be able to absorb ideally. However, due to poor dietary patterns, deficiencies of various vitamins and minerals may occur these days. If you like you can take a biotin supplement to fulfill your requirements.

Moreover, all individuals are not able to absorb the biotin found in food. These include people who have an A blood type and who suffer from symptoms of GERD or severe acid reflux. Such individuals may want to consider taking biotin supplements to fulfill their dietary requirements.


How Much Biotin to Take for Hair Growth?

The daily requirement of biotin for the majority of the adults is 30 micrograms to maintain healthy hair, nails, and skin. However, when you are taking biotin to increase the growth of hair, then the dose is much higher. It is usually recommended by physicians to take between 500-700 micrograms per day initially. The amount can increase to 1000 micrograms. Results are seen after taking biotin supplements consistently for 3-6 months.



Other Essential Vitamins for Healthy Hair Growth

Healthy Hair Growth

from http://bembu.com/hair-growth-vitamins

Getting the right vitamins for hair growth is important for the overall health of your hair. Running a deficiency in any of the following vitamins and minerals creates the potential for less than optimal hair growth. Here is our list of the top 11 vitamins you need to keep your hair looking its best and growing just as fast as it possibly can.

Vitamin C

Most of us are aware of how important Vitamin C is for the immune system, and as an antioxidant in the body. But it is also used in plenty of hair care products for a good reason. It is one of the most important vitamins you can use to get the results you seek. You can use products that are infused with it, and also make sure that you’re getting enough Vitamin C of it each day so your hair looks its best. Whole foods work best but you can also take a supplement if you feel like you are not maintaining the right levels.

One of vitamin C’s major functions is to help produce and maintain healthy collagen, the connective tissue type found within hair follicles. Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant and protects both the cells found within follicles and cells in nearby blood vessels. A daily dose of 100-200 mg of vitamin C is recommended for hair and skincare. Vitamin C with bioflavonoids – one to two grams daily

Vitamin C helps reduce the damage caused by free radicals and UV exposure. Over time, free radicals can damage collagen and elastin, the fibers that support skin structure.


B Vitamins

The B Vitamins are typically grouped together because there’s so many of them and you’ll want to be sure to cover them all. You can eat foods that are rich in these vitamins, take a B Vitamin complex, or buy shampoos and conditioners that contain them. Signs of not getting enough of the B Vitamins include feeling weak or tired, and easy bruising, and you’ll also notice it because your hair won’t grow as fast as it used to. Vitamin B12 is the most important of the B Vitamins, but for best results try to include them all in your daily plan.


B5 (pantothenic acid) gives hair flexibility, strength, and shine and helps prevent hair loss and greying.

Vitamin B6 helps prevent dandruff and can be found in cereals, egg yolk, and liver.

Vitamin B12 helps prevent the loss of hair and can be found in fish, eggs, chicken, and milk.

It is also important to include B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid in the supplemental program. It has been found that certain minerals including magnesium, sulfur, silica, and zinc are also very important toward maintaining healthy hair.


Vitamins B1, B2, Niacin & Pantothenic acid

Reduced levels of thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin, and pantothenic acid can contribute to the undernourishment of hair-follicle cells. A dosage range of 25-50 mg daily is recommended.


Vitamin E

Vitamin E is one of the most overlooked vitamins but it is essential in keeping your hair growing healthy. You can get enough Vitamin E by eating foods that are full of it, or by taking a whole food multivitamin that contains it. If you’ve been running low on it, you should see an improvement in how your hair looks, feels, and grows. Vitamin E, when combined with the other vitamins on this list provides a healthy scalp that encourages rather than discourages hair growth. You can also find this in many hair care items, but if you haven’t seen any results through those, trying taking the strategy of getting enough on the inside.


Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant in the body and has many health properties that make it a vitamin worth keeping a mindful eye on. You can go to the doctor and have all of your vitamin levels checked to see where you rank and see which ones you need more of. It is possible to get too much Vitamin A which is going to be counterproductive to your hair growth efforts, so it’s best to each foods containing Vitamin A rather than taking supplements with larger-than-needed amounts. Some symptoms of not getting enough Vitamin A include vision problems and skin problems.


Vitamin D

Vitamin D promotes healthy follicle growth so you don’t want to run a shortage on it. In order to top up on it you’ll want to schedule regular and brief outings outdoors so you can get some exposure to the sun. You don’t need much in order to keep your body synthesizing its own Vitamin D, but hermitting yourself indoors during the winter months can lead to a deficiency. There are also Vitamin D supplements and hair products that contain it, but they don’t compare to having your body generate its own supply.



While not a vitamin, Iron is an important mineral that your body needs adequate supplies of in order to function at its best in several areas, including growing hair. You may realize that beef is rich in iron, but there are plenty of other foods that are high in iron that you can eat without having to rely on red meat. Once you’re making sure that you’re getting enough iron and the other vitamins and minerals, you can seek out hair products that contain iron in order to see greater improvement.



Another mineral that your body needs is Magnesium. It’s best to look at your hair as a cumulative problem that involves your entire lifestyle, from the foods you eat to how much sleep you’re getting. Eating a diet rich in foods with Magnesium in them is one way to make sure that you’re giving your scalp what it needs to grow strong and healthy hair. It’s one of those minerals that you won’t really notice you’re not getting enough of until it becomes a chronic condition, and then you’ll benefit greatly from righting the imbalance.



Protein may not be a vitamin, but if you want stronger hair that grows thick you’ll want to make sure that you’re consuming enough protein, or using protein treatments to help your hair. You’ll see products out there that are focused primarily on protein, but you’ll also benefit by eating enough of it in your diet. Vegans and vegetarians need not fret, there are plenty of plant-based sources of protein, like quinoa, spinach, broccoli, and more. Protein helps the hair grow strong, and also helps the speed at which it grows. If you’ve noticed sluggish growth, first check your protein intake.



Niacin is in the B Vitamin family but deserves its own recognition for its role in helping to nourish the scalp, promoting healthy hair growth. Without adequate amounts of niacin, your hair stands the chance of becoming brittle, lifeless, and may even fall out. Not getting enough Niacin is a real condition, and the scientific name is pellagra. Most times it doesn’t become this serious, but correcting a Niacin shortage often yields several results. Be sure not to stop there, as you’ll want to make sure that you’re getting enough of each of the items on this page for your best hair possible.



They say to cover your vitamins from A to Zinc and this is one instance where they’re right. You might not have given much thought to your Zinc levels before, but they could be playing a part in lackluster hair growth if you don’t have enough. The good news is that it’s not too hard to keep up with your zinc requirements, and most standard diets keep it covered. But you may have trouble absorbing the Zinc you are getting, at which point you may need additional supplements or hair products that contain added Zinc.


Zinc is essential for DNA and RNA production, which, in turn, leads to normal follicle-cell division. Zinc is also responsible for helping to stabilize cell-membrane structures and assists in the breakdown and removal of superoxide radicals. Zinc intake is generally low. Topical applications of zinc have been shown to reduce the hair loss activity of 5-AR type II. The recommended dosage is 15 mg of zinc (in the form of zinc amino acid chelate) per day.

Zinc deficiencies, and any associated hair health, may associate with low-calorie diets, especially young women. Zinc is found in meat, eggs, and seafood.


Folic acid

A decrease in folic acid may contribute to decreased hair-follicle cell division and growth. Folic acid is also essential for the maintenance of healthy methionine levels in the body. Signs of folic-acid deficiency include anemia, apathy, fatigue, and graying hair. A therapeutic dose of 400-800 mcg daily is suggested.



Beta-carotene is also important to hair growth. This is so because beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A as the body needs it, helps maintain normal growth and bone development, protective sheathing around nerve fibers, as well as promoting healthy skin, hair and nails. Dosage for Beta-carotene is 10,000 to 15,000 IU daily.


Vitamins A, C, and E are antioxidants that enhance skin cell turnover and collagen synthesis. When applied topically these vitamins protect against premature skin aging from the damaging effects of ultraviolet light and environmental pollutants.


Vitamin E

Vitamin E also helps reduce the skin effects of free radicals and UV exposure.



Selenium is necessary for iodine metabolism. Case studies have indicated that selenium deficiency can lead to cancer, heart disease, and poor hair growth. Supplementation of 25-50 mcg of selenium per day is the recommended dosage.


 Trace elements


A fraction of the body’s calcium stimulates cell mediators that act on cell-membrane phospholipids in hair-follicle cells. Most Americans fail to meet the recommended daily intake for calcium. Patients have to be advised to take magnesium with supplemental calcium to maintain healthy calcium levels in the body. Without extra magnesium to balance it, large doses of calcium may be harmful. The recommended dosage is 100-200 mg of calcium per day.



Deficiency causes microcytic and hypochromic anemia. Moreover, most other organs including the skin and pilo sebaceous follicles are affected.


Suboptimal thyroid functioning can lead to abnormal hair growth. Because iodine supports proper thyroid functioning, 112-225 mcg of iodine (in the form of kelp) per day is the recommended dosage.


L-Methionine, one of four sulfur-containing amino acids, supports hair strength by providing adequate amounts of sulfur to hair cells. Sulfur is required for healthy connective tissue formation. Hair requires sulfur for normal growth and appearance.

L-Cystein – supports hair strength by the provision of sulfur.  Skin, nails, and hair are high in L-Cysteine. There is evidence that deficiency may be a factor in hair loss. Supplementing the diet accordingly may be helpful.

L-Lysine – It is interesting to note that male pattern baldness is less common in Asians than Americans. Is this in part due to the Asian diet being rich in L-Lysine -an enzyme inhibiting amino acid in vegetables and herbs affecting 5-alpha-reductase in some way.


Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)

Play an important role in cell structure, barrier function, lipid synthesis, inflammation, and immunity. PUFAs help reduce dry, scaly skin. Most popular sources are walnuts, fish oil, flaxseed oil, etc.

People on low-fat and non-fat diets are at risk for nutrition-related hair loss because hair needs essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acid deficiency causes a drying-up of the scalp and skin. These are vital nutrients that support follicular health. When the follicle is not healthy, hair loss or thinning occurs.


Aging effects

There is no solution across the board I currently found for this there are so many types of people and most of all their habits and styles of life that are nearly impossible to assert every individual. Even with outstanding nutrition, the genetic blueprint is eventually going to take control and hair may change in colour, structure, and densities so many variants at taking on this subject.

Control of biological aging may be influenced by superfoods, super green mixes, chlorella, spirulina, micro-algae extracts such as astaxanthin, broccoli sprouts fresh vegetables blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc also garlic, ginger, and other culinary and medicinal herbs and nowadays we can include laser treatments, photon lights, Rife machines and so much more.


It is important in overall bodily health and potentially good hair health. Water quenches thirst, aids food digestion, eases stress, flushes toxins and many other functions and let’s not forget the water we use to shampoo our hair is an important factor for hair health.


Many common vitamins and all amino acids exist as multiple isomers; however, it is rare that these are equally available to human metabolism. The chirality of amino acids is well established, as is the dramatic difference between left and right enantiomers in the human body. On the whole, humans can only metabolize left or L enantiomers, such as L-Cysteine. R-Cysteine is not taken up or commonly metabolized, therefore commonly used racemic mixtures of the two forms are only half comprised of useful amino acids.

Vitamins, such as vitamin B6 also have several forms, pyridoxine is the form of vitamin B6 most commonly used in nutritional supplements, however, it is not the bio-active form. Instead, it must be phosphorylated to become pyridoxal-5-phosphate, which is active as an enzyme cofactor for many reactions and is important for uptake of other nutrients as well. The phosphorylation reaction to activate pyridoxine takes energy and a certain set of conditions, and therefore not all the pyridoxine that is taken in a supplement is used. A more efficient alternative is to use pyridoxal-5-phosphate in the supplement, so the bio-active form is immediately available, requiring no energy, and minimal wastage.

Bioavailability is not just controlled by isomeric forms. Nutrient uptake is complex, and there are many surprising instances where one nutrient is dramatically affected – either negatively or positively, by a completely different nutrient in the formula.




A final and often overlooked factor is the circulation of oxygen and nutrients to the hair. Even a perfectly balanced supplement would be ineffective without adequate blood flow to the hair. Hair loss may conceivably be caused or exacerbated by a deficient blood supply,. therefore it may be beneficial to increases circulation. This can be achieved through topical treatments that stimulate nitric oxide production or angiogenesis.

Let’s remember the fact that where there is healthy blood flow that part of our body thrives with wellness that is a fact, and hair is no exception.



The stimulatory effects of caffeine and taurine on nutrient uptake and metabolism may also be beneficial. An added consideration is the possible effect of caffeine upon dihydrotestosterone and hair loss. Caffeine has been shown by several studies to reduce hair loss caused by dihydrotestosterone, the in vivo studies were successful topically, but the effects of oral caffeine have not been tested at this time. Taurine has also been shown by in vitro testing to protect the hair from TGFβ-1 induced apoptosis.






Hair and scalp treatments that work


In spite of the paucity of clinical data in the area, it is possible through careful formulation to develop a potent, bioavailable, and balanced formula with combinations of ingredients that are likely to have good clinical outcomes. This is particularly true if supplements are used to support wider treatment regimes – even surgery.



Top 5 Essential Oils For Healthy Hair And Scalp

Essential Oils

from: http://www.hairbuddha.net/essential-oils-for-healthy-hair/


Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is very versatile and has a well-established tradition as a folk remedy. It helps balance natural scalp oils, which makes it valuable for all hair types.
