As records recede, women have tried to have longer, thicker lashes than their rivals. They knew that her beauty, and therefore her chances of being chosen as a bride, were greatly increased by having beautiful eyes. And they knew then, as they know now, that the only factor that makes a woman's eyes stand out is long, thick lashes.

From the Egyptians and the Romans who use kohl to highlight their eyes, to the eastern women who use Henna to do the same, women have tried to find the magic formula to give them beautiful, long and curly eyelashes. Many methods like hot wax to give lashes a firmer appearance have resulted in blindness. Over time, countless methods have been developed and today a variety of eyelash growth techniques and growth products are available to women. From the natural growth of eyelashes, to the use of home remedies to grow them, to permanent eyelashes, the options are numerous. Women just have to decide which growth method suits their needs and budget.

Using mascara to give the impression of thicker lashes is still very popular and cheap. However, the chemical ingredients in mascara can be irritating to some women and cause redness and itching. So many women opt for false eyelashes to give them the long eyelashes they want. But again, this is a very temporary measure and must be carried out daily. Also, there is an art to wearing false eyelashes and if done incorrectly they will appear crooked.

A slightly more expensive method is eyelash extensions. These can be semi-permanent eyelash extensions or permanent eyelash extensions.

Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are where the extensions are attached to each individual eyelash on the eyelid with a special glue and lasts for about 2 months. Semi-permanent extensions look very natural and will definitely give women longer lashes, but care must be taken in choosing the right salon. Done incorrectly, hairs can look lumpy and when removed, natural lashes can also fall out. Semi-permanent lashes will not be affected by daily routines like bathing or swimming and the fact that lash extensions last 2 months is also helpful.

Permanent eyelash extensions are the most expensive. This method of achieving long permanent eyelashes involves surgery. A patch of skin is taken from the back of the neck and grafted onto the eyelids. Since the hairs are natural, they will grow but at a faster rate than the existing eyelashes. Therefore, new hairs must be trimmed and cared for. The permanent eyelash extension procedure is unique and not only are they natural, but women can live normal lives without fear of falling out. These permanent eyelashes are very popular with women who have short eyelash hairs, especially Chinese and Japanese.

The last method to obtain longer eyelashes is to use eyelash growth serums. These serums rub on the hairs and stimulate hair growth. Eyelash serums are gaining popularity, but great care must be taken when administering them. Unless they have been approved by the relevant health authorities, they should not be used. Do eyelashes grow with them? Only one eyelash serum has been approved by the FDA and that is Lumigan or Latisse. This serum really stimulates hair growth and the women and men who have used it testify that it does help grow those pretty lashes,
