Who doesn’t dream of beautiful, thick, and natural eyebrows? Eyebrows not only keep dirt and sweat out of our eyes, but they also affect our facial expressions and can add intensity to our looks.
We usually reach for the tweezers and pluck out unwanted hairs to improve the shape. However, it may take a long time for the hairs to grow back, or they may not grow back at all, leaving unsightly hollows. If you also want to know how to grow eyebrows quickly and naturally, here’s some tips to help you out!
No More Tweezers!
If you want to grow out your eyebrows properly, the first thing you need to do is to free yourself from tweezers for at least three to four months. Frequent hair plucking risks weakening the roots and disrupting the natural growth cycle. This can cause the hairs to grow much slower. If you remove hair when the hairs are not resting and ready for new growth, you risk creating unsightly gaps in your eyebrows. By not plucking your eyebrows too often or too soon, they will grow back healthily.
Nutrition can also affect the growth of your eyebrows. To have healthy and strong hair, it is necessary to absorb enough vitamins and minerals. Therefore, make sure you get enough protein, vitamins A and B, iron, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids. These are mainly found in green leafy vegetables, nuts, carrots, avocados, salmon, and olive oil. And don’t forget to stay well hydrated by drinking at least a liter of water a day. Your eyebrows will thank you!
Take Care of Your Eyebrows
To look your best, you need to take care of your eyebrows. Take a look at these tips for a perfect beauty routine to grow it quickly.
Exfoliate your eyebrows with a soft toothbrush or scrub. This will remove the dead skin cells and stimulate the hair follicles to improve blood flow, thus making them grow faster. You can use a traditional face scrub or occasionally scrub with a small amount of sugar.
Serums and nutritional supplements based on peptides, keratin, and biotin can help make your hair healthy and resistant right away.
At night, nourish and moisturize your eyebrows with your choice of castor oil, coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, or Vaseline. These oils deeply moisturize the hair, making it healthy and shiny, and contain proteins, healthy fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that nourish the hair follicles and promote hair growth.
You can also make a simple DIY treatment using onions. It may sound strange, but onion juice works little miracles because it supplies vitamins B and C, which support eyebrow hair growth, and sulfur, promoting collagen production.
- Finely chop one fresh onion and strain its juice.
- Then apply it directly to your eyebrows
- Leave on for one hour
- Rinse thoroughly
- Repeat the treatment 3 to 4 times a week
Regularly massage your eyebrows to stimulate blood circulation and hair follicles. When massaging, use a small amount of castor oil or any of the above oils to soften the hair and make it moist and shiny.
Grooming The Eyebrows
During the regrowth phase, eyebrows can become very distorted and not at their best. Resist the temptation to pull out the hairs with tweezers and continue to be patient. After about 12 weeks, carefully remove any loose hairs that are growing around your eyebrows. To groom them during this transitional period, we recommend combing them with a brush, shaping them with gel, filling in the blanks with a pencil, concealer, or suitable eyeshadow, and possibly cutting them with scissors but be careful to leave the roots intact.
Go To a Beauty Salon
After about three to four months, you will notice that your eyebrows have already become much thicker and more natural-looking. To avoid repeating the same mistake and ruining the results you have achieved, we recommend consulting an esthetician to get the right shape for you and explain how you can do it at home alone.
