Women have a close relationship with their hair and their eyelashes. There are times when they think the former could be thicker and the latter could be longer, but for the most part, they are happy (somewhat) with them both. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find a woman who is 100% happy with their eyebrows 100% of the time.
Some women like to shave them off and pencil them in everyday. Others prefer to go for a tattoo, essentially making that process permanent. However, it’s much better to keep your original eyebrows and to play with what you have. If they are thick and strong, there’s so much you can do with them and they look infinitely better than those thin, emotionless lines you’re drawing on your face everyday!
In this article we’ll show you how to make your eyebrows grow. Once they are thick and strong, then the world (or rather your face) is your oyster and you can make of it what you will. We take no responsibility for anything that you create beyond that point (unless it’s amazing, in which case it was all us) but we will help you to get there.
How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow
There are a number of home remedies that you can use to make your eyebrows grow and that’s what we will cover in this guide on “How to Make Your Eyebrows Grow”. Before we get to that point though there are a few other things you can do to ensure your hair and your skin is well prepared. Consider it a foundation of good beauty and great hair.
The first thing you should do is take a look at our baldness cures, which can help to get rid of those bald spots; our vitamin for hair loss article, which can strengthen your hair; and our hair loss in women article, which can help with a number of issues. If you’re a man then you can also check with our beard growth products article and our guide on saw palmetto.
Right, now that we’ve got that self promotion out of the way, it’s time to get to the reason you’re here: how to make your eyebrows grow. First up, it’s a favorite of ours, something that should be found in every beauty collection, but something often resigned to your grandmother’s medicine box, along with a bottle of iodine and enough painkillers to kill a herd of elephants.
You grandmother’s favorite constipation cure is also our favorite hair growth cure. If you want to know how to make your eyebrows grow then look no further. Not only can this oil effectively kill the microorganisms that cling to your hair and restrict growth, but it can also stimulate your hair follicles and encourage growth. What’s more, it is rich in Vitamin E, which is brilliant for speeding up hair growth.
To use caster oil on your eyebrows, simply coat a cotton swab in the substance and then gently rub it on your brow. Don’t use too much of it—you don’t want it to drip into your eyes. Once you have applied a thin layer, then spend a few minutes massaging your eyebrows. By that point it should have dried and stopped running.
You can either leave it in for a few hours and then wash off, or you can leave it in overnight. But even the simple act or rubbing it in and massaging will be effective.
This has been hailed as the “next big thing”. If you believe bloggers and “health experts” then coconut oil is both a superfood, a medical marvel and the ultimate mouthwash. We don’t know about any of that, but we do know that it is effective at making your eyebrows grow longer.
To use coconut oil, just follow the same steps as outlined above for the caster oil. Its effects tend not to be as instant though, so in this case you should look to leave it in overnight.
This can also be used in the same way as the caster oil treatment, and it will react in much the same way as well. Just make sure you warm the oil slightly first. You don’t want it boiling hot and spitting, of course, but you want it to be warm to the touch. You can also mix the oil with a little honey so that it sticks to your face better. What’s more, honey has an antibacterial effect that may help to kill those troublesome organisms that are restricting growth.
Olive oil is a little more readily available and is probably already sitting in your kitchen cupboards. This is a truly wonderful substance and is every bit of a medical marvel that coconut oil has been labelled as.
Not only is it a great foodstuff, but olive oil’s benefits have also been noted by the medical community. It is used to clear blocked ear wax and is also prescribed for certain skin conditions. It’s a miracle substance and it works just as well at growing your eyebrows.
A staple of middle eastern and Asian cooking, fenugreek seeds are a great way to spice up a dish, but they can also help you to grow your eyebrows. They are rich in amino acids and protein, which is what all hair needs. They also contain nicotinic acid, which can help to promote hair growth and rebuild damaged policies.
To create a concoction with these seeds, simply soak a handful of them in water for at least 6 hours. That will soften them up and allow you to easily grind them into a paste. Once you do that you can add a little honey, olive oil and/or coconut oil. Not too much. You still want a paste-like substance, but if you can also benefit from the goodness of those substances, then why not go for it?
Apple the paste to your eyebrows and wait for it to harden before going to bed. You can wash it off in the morning and then repeat the process a few times a week. You should notice the effects in a matter of weeks.
