I discovered patches in my eyelashes where the lashes a a lot shorter and are all stubby! This is not good :S Could it be my eye lash curler? Mascara? Help!

It is likely either or both - barring anything else. If you are curling your lashes after you put on mascara, then it's not surprising. That's a taboo. But sometimes it's just the mascara itself - it depends how much you use of it. The more you put on, the more brittle your lashes get; the more brittle, the more prone to breakage. Naturally, this isn't a rule - it could simply be a phase your lashes are going thru. As for the curler, that is better left away from your lashes - they are notorious. They have this stuff called Talika eyelash gel that is supposed to promote (re)growth. I've not tried it (although I'm really tempted to!)...but I heard raves about it from a lot of people. It's expensive (but that's relative, isn't it). Anyone out there with experience with Talika? Would it possibly help?

Yikes! My eyelash curler is going in the bin right now!
I use L'Oreal mascara, I think it's getting pretty old, so I should probably throw it out too. I think I'll probably never touch an eyelash curler again and lay off the mascara a bit...

You could soothe your eyelashes with castor oil before you go to bed at night.. I do this and my eyelashes are WHEW! finally growing. I also applied some to my annoying eyebrow and it is growing back out.

There's also Ardell Lash & Brow Growth Accelerator, and two other products that I seriously cannot remember the name to ATM! Oh! Mavala & Talika!

You should replace your mascara about every 2 months so if its way due then toss it out. Ive also heard great things about castor oil so I might try this myself.

I heard the 2 month rule and used to abide by it as well. Most industry experts now say that 3 months is a good time as well. Hey, if I can get an extra month, I will! Rule of thumb - toss when it starts drying out, don't add any liquid to thin it out. Some mascaras really can pull it through to the 4-6 month range but more than that, and it is questionable. Most eye product have shorter life spans (also better to play it safe given the delicate area).

Since it is hair as well, the more you do to it - the weaker it can get. I would say maybe lay off the curling and use the tips the other ladies gave you and see if that helps you any Posted Image

i have this problem when i use waterproof mascara. now i make sure everything washes off with just soap and water. i also cut down on my liquid eyeliner and use just gel liners and pencils. it's helped quite abit.

Awww, I'm sorry! I know that's got to suck! It could be weakening your lashes using mascara everyday, and curling too. Shesido has a conditioning mascara that is actually good for your lashes..it contains strengthers and protein. It's a little pricey though, for a mascara.

I know what you mean! Mine are the same way... without mascara, I used to be able to just open my eyes my the tips of my lashes would touch my eyebrow... not anymore! They're much more sparse and a good bit shorter, although I can get that length back with a good mascara. Have you tried any of the regrowth mascaras yet? Nichole

Well I've been using emu oil on my eyebrows for a while now, they're starting to grow back and get thicker, soit might work on my eyelashes? I tried castor oil, it stung my eyes a bit. Haven't tried a conditioning mascara, they sound expensive and I'm just a poor student! :P

To help with that literally wash your eyelashes with baby shampoo, a couple times a day, for a week or so, see if that helps, some times there is a bacteria, I cant think of the name that gets on them, and causes them to fall out and thin, that could be whats happening, it happened to me a few years ago, to this day I dont know why . but i went to the docs about it, cause it was freaking me out, well thats what I did, and it hasnt happened again, also they all grew back fine too Posted Image good luck!

come to think of it, I did have to get a perscription for some sauve also, so you may have to see the doc about it, but it can be taken care of easy, if thats what it is! Posted Image
Ya all have a wonderful day now!

A lot of women get britlle lashes whaen using waterproof mascara simply for the same reasonas geting split ends in your hair. The hairshaft weekens, dries out and splits or breaks. Use very gentle products only and try cream cleansers to remove your eyemakeup instead of foaming cleansers.Posted Image

I had eyelash extensions for my birthday - the ones that are supposed to last a few weeks. I realized that when they fell out, they were taking my real lashes with them. I started putting almond oil on them and it seems to be helping.

Change your mascara and start using mascara base/primer from now on to protect your lashes.

Maybe the rubber band on your eyelash curler needs changing, when was the last time you changed it?
