Maybe you saw it? A lot of people did… the New York Times article entitled “You’re Not Imagining It: The Pandemic Is Making Your Hair Fall Out” (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/18/style/hair-loss-coronavirus-pandemic.html)
According to the paper, doctors are reporting an alarming trend - more cases of stress-related hair loss during the past pandemic year. Wow! The culprit is a condition called telogen effluvium, a type of “clumpy” hair loss that targets women. The cause? Stress.
Well, a few savvy RevitaLash® Cosmetics users saw the article and asked if “COVID fallout” also applies to lashes and brows?
It makes sense - after all, brows and lashes are composed of the same material as your hair… mostly keratin. The structure of lashes and brows is close to that of the hair from the head - and like hair, the condition of brows and lashes is closely linked to overall health, in particular, stress levels. Stress raises cortisol (the stress hormone). Excess cortisol can wreak havoc throughout your body, including hair, lashes, and brows. Ever heard of free radicals and the damage they can do at the cellular level? Excess cortisol is one of the major culprits.
So, like the Times warned, if your once gorgeous lashes and brows look thinner, it might not be an optical illusion!
The Timesquoted a woman who experienced “clumpy” hair loss. What helped her get it under control was a regimen of supplements and RevitaLash Cosmetics Shampoo and Conditioner.
Surprised? What would the creator of the world’s best eyelash and eyebrow serums know about hair? Everything.
And here’s where it all comes together.
Thinning hair needs to be kept clean. RevitaLash Cosmetics Thickening Shampoo does just that… gently, thoroughly, and without stripping essential oils. Even better, special therapeutic ingredients fortify the hair cuticle and work to improve hair shaft thickness.
Stressed out hair needs protection, nutrition, and strengthening. RevitaLash Cosmetics Thickening Conditioner helps shield hair against the ravages of free radicals, improves scalp health, and helps to recondition, revive, and replenish.
Thinning lashes and brows need to be kept clean. The superior way to clean and hydrate is with micellar water. What the heck is micellar water? A special purified water with micelles (balls of cleansing oil) to attract dirt, oil, pollutants, and makeup for gentle, skin-friendly cleaning. Read more at RevitaLash.com.

Stressed out lashes and brows need protection, nutrition, and strengthening.

Along with lash and brow conditioners, good-for-you color cosmetics are key to preventing further damage to your lashes and brows like our Hi-Def Brow Gel, Hi-Def Brow Pencil, Defining Liner, and Double-Ended Volume Set Primer & Mascara which include hair and skin conditioners and vitamins.
