Vegan ways to make your lashes longer?

If you are vegan, you are probably wondering ways that you can help grow your lashes without compromising your morals. You have probably done your research and noticed that eyelash extensions are problematic, at best. Beyond that, falsies can also come from questionable avenues. 

If you are looking to grow your lashes out in a vegan manner, you will want to look into vegan eyelash growth serums, supplements, adding certain vegetables to your diet, and vegan mascaras. Some eyelash extensions and falsies are vegan as well. 

We have compiled an all encompassing guide to growing out your long and luscious lashes the natural way. If you are vegan, you also probably care about cruelty-free cosmetics. We have made sure to include these options in our list as well. Let’s get started! 

 

Vegan Growth Serums

There are tons of eyelash growth serums out on the market right now! They are a great alternative to constantly getting eyelash extensions or falsies to fake length. Instead of augmenting the way your lashes grow, growth serums actually make your own lashes grow! 


When looking for an eyelash growth serum, make sure to check that the serum is both vegan and cruelty-free. Also, make sure to look at the ingredient list to ensure that there are no harmful chemicals or parabens in your serum. 


If you are trying to grow your eyelashes naturally, you should also consider the ForLash Growth serum by ForChics. ForLash is both vegan and cruelty-free, and uses natural ingredients to help stimulate hair growth! The formula is also paraben-free, and boasts results in as little as a few weeks!

Supplements

B12 & B Vitamins

If you are already a vegan, chances are that you are taking B12 supplements. These are vital for vegans and vegetarians alike. If you are already taking B12 supplements, you may want to switch to a full B Vitamin complex, to maximize your eyelash growth. 

Biotin

Biotin has long been proven to help promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. Our bodies need biotin to help convert certain nutrients into energy. Biotin also plays an important role in the health of our hair, skin, and nails. If you aren’t getting enough biotin in your daily life, you may experience hair loss or a scaly red rash, according to Healthline

At ForChics, we know how important Biotin is to hair growth. That is why we have included Biotin in our tried and true ForLash growth serum. Some of our customers have seen results in as little as 3 weeks. Read more reviews here

Diet

For eyelash growth with vegans in particular, it’s important to make sure that you are getting enough of the following in your diet: protein, B Vitamins, iron and calcium. These nutrients are a bit harder to include in a plant-based diet, so we will show you how! 

Protein

If you are already vegan, I’m sure you already know how to get a substantial amount of protein in your diet. For people looking to become vegan, the typical protein sources for vegans include nuts, tofu, beans/legumes, chickpeas/lentils, tempe, vegetarian meat, and nutritional yeast (LiveKindly, 2019). We want to recommend beans and legumes specifically, as they are a great way to support eyelash growth.

B-Vitamins

Beyond B12, the other B Vitamins essential for eyelash hair growth include B3, B5 and B6. Luckily, with a vegan diet, you should be able to have these vitamins covered. For B3 vitamins (niacin), you can eat asparagus, mushrooms, sunflower seeds and peanuts. B3 vitamins are helpful because they improve blood flow to the hair follicles. 

Iron

Iron is another essential hair growth nutrient that vegans need to take into consideration. It is a myth that vegans do not get enough iron. Usually, with a balanced diet and enough leafy greens (like spinach and kale), there is no need for supplements. But as always, listen to your body. And if you are trying to get some extra length on those lashes, load up on leafy greens! 

 

 

Calcium

Calcium is the last nutrient that is essential for eyelash growth. If you are vegan, you will need to find this ingredient in places other than dairy. Vegans can find this amazing nutrient in calcium-set tofu, fortified plant milk, kale, pak choi, okra, spring greens, dried figs, chia seeds and almonds. Beyond that, calcium-supplements can help to ensure that you are receiving enough calcium for your eyelashes, and more importantly, your bones! 

Vegan Mascaras 

Of course, an extremely easy way to make your lashes appear longer is to use a good mascara. There are a few vegan mascaras on the market currently. You will want to make sure that you find a vegan mascara that is also cruelty-free. This mascara is amazing because it literally HEALS your lashes while you wear it and is 100% vegan. 

 

Better Than Falsies Mascara

 

Vegan Extensions and Falsies

There are vegan lash extensions and falsies out there, you just have to look for them! Make sure to avoid mink and silk if you can, unless they say vegan or plant-based. Additionally, make sure to look for vegan lash glue for your extensions and falsies. 

Conclusion

First and foremost, you need to do the things that feel good for your own body. By maintaining a healthy and balanced diet, taking vitamins and supplements, and using natural lash growth serums, you can have your lashes bouncing back in no time. At ForChics, we believe that when you feel good, you look good. Beauty starts from within, and includes feeling empowered to grow in the ways that you want to.
