Keratin for Longer Hair and Lashes

I don't put mascara on very often, but recently it's felt like my own lashes have gotten longer. While I've been taking keratin by NeoCell to help grow my hair, I wondered if it effects lashes as well. I did a google search and sure enough, it does. Genetics determines the rate at which your eyelashes grow, but certain nutrients can support their growth. A lot of the same nutrients that support hair growth also support growth of your lashes! NeoCell's Keratin supplement contains keratin, collagen, vitamin C and amla extract. NeoCell Keratin Hair Volumizer is available here at Vitamin Shoppe.  Shipping is free with your purchase of $25 or more.

According to livestrong.com, vitamin C hydrates your eyelashes, decreases hair follicle inflammation, repairs hair follicle damage, aids in collagen production and lowers your risk of eyelash breakage.

Collagen stimulates fibroblasts at the hair root, resulting in increased diameter of the hair shaft. Collagen is the most abundent protein in the body. Collagen supplementation is one of best things you can do to prevent premature aging. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together. It is the building block for all our body's major systems. Learn more about how collagen works here.

And because the keratin is bioavailable, it's able to bind with hair and has been proven to increase hair strength and make it shinier.

Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-aging properties. Amla provides high concentrations of Vitamin C and and has been revered for being a powerful antioxidant.
