Not blessed with beautiful long eyelashes? Blame your mom! (just kidding)

There is this belief that when you want a long and thick eyelashes you must cut it off. I mean you cannot literally cut it off when you’re just an infant, but your mom can do that for you.
I don’t know if there is any scientific explanation why some mommies love cutting their babies’ eyelashes, but most of my friends and relatives doing that practice. They cut the eyelashes three times during the baby’s first year, until preferred length and thickness achieved.
My mother-in-law tried it to my daughter, and we noticed that it thickens. My sister-in-law tried it again and we noticed the obvious lengthening of my little baby’s eyelashes… and I do love it.
