Even our lashes can be affected by diseases and different kinds of conditions. Although we rarely devote time to lash care, you should know how to deal with common growth abnormalities.
We have more info on scalp conditions because they hugely affect the appearance of hair. We treat dandruff, baldness, dermatitis, etc. In case of eyelashes, the problems have to do with the length, thickness, number or placement of eyelashes. It’s not so common and bothersome.
Eyelash abnormalities can be divided into:
- genetic abnormalities,
- acquired abnormalities (caused by ageing).
No matter the source of the problem, at-home lash-enhancing treatment is the best solution. Commercially-available eyelash serums are rich in beautifying ingredients as well as substances which soothe irritations, regenerate, moisturise and stimulate growth. In case of most lash growth abnormalities, the quality and composition of ingredients matter the most. It transfers to the treatment’s effects and their intensity. Choose eyelash serums wisely, considering consumers’ opinions and reviews.
Most common lash diseases:
- distichia (an extra row of lashes),
- lash tangling and thinning,
- trichomegaly (excessive lash growth),
- dislocation (lashes growing in different directions),
- lash loss (excessively falling out lashes),
- trichotillomania (pulling lashes out),
- genetic lack of eyelashes.
Do eyelash serums help solve every lash problem? They should if you follow instructions for use. Obviously, a serum doesn’t equal a total cure for some of the problems but you should know that in every case, lash serums make a great backup in the treatment. The right care is the key. If it’s not enough, you can try to reduce the lash abnormalities e.g. with laser therapy, diathermy and other similar treatments.
