The oils boost hair growth enhancing the thickness of your eyelashes. At the same time, the lemon peels are a rich source of vitamin A and C, which strengthens the hair and helps them grow stronger.
Shea butter for eyelashes

Onion juice for eyebrows
Onion juice is a rich source of sulfur, selenium, minerals, and vitamin B and C. All these nutrients are great remedies for hair growth. Sulfur boosts the production of collagen tissues, which are essential for the growth of eyebrows. Additionally, sulfur also improves the strength of hair follicles.
Apply onion juice on the eyebrows every alternate day. To get rid of the pungent smell of the juice, you can use lemon juice on the eyebrows.

Olive oil is rich in vitamin A and E, and these vitamins help in the growth of hair. Vitamin E nourishes each strand of hair while vitamin A stimulates the sebum production, which is our body’s natural hair that helps with hair growth. This remedy should be used at least once a day in order to see results in a matter of weeks.
Take a drop of olive oil on your fingertip and massage it on your eyebrows. Leave it on for a couple of hours and wash it off using face wash and water.
