When it comes to your eyebrows, there are many factors that can go into changing how they look and how you choose to style them throughout the years. Heck, sometimes even accidents happen and before you know it, you're pulling up Google to try and fix the unexpected mistake.
Whether you’re here because you’ve accidentally trimmed a little bit too much off the top, or if you’re trying to channel your inner Cara Delevigne, we’ve compiled our favorite ways to naturally boost your brows!
General brow care tips from the experts
Before we start off with any industry secrets, we need to make sure the basics are covered. After all, a solid foundation means a better chance for success when it comes to your brow growth. Here are our recommendations to ensure that you start your brow journey off the right way.
Overtreatment can lead to thinning
Let’s take a moment to bring it back to the basics. Similar to how you can overprocess your hair, your brows can face the same concerns. It is important to make sure that any treatments being done to your brows are done properly. Causing unnecessary strain will only further deter any potential hair growth around your eyebrows.
Gently brush your brows
In addition to minimizing any overtreatment, your brows may need a little encouragement in the form of brushing. Similar to your scalp, gently brushing out your eyebrows can improve circulation and encourage growth. In the end, the key is to be gentle during this process, as unnecessary friction and pulling can cause distress to the hair follicle and any strands of hair that may be present.
Keep the skin under your brows moisturized
Healthy skin is the first step to producing healthy hair. If your skin becomes dry, flaky, or irritated, it’s going to be difficult for additional nutrients to be provided to any potential hair growth within that same area. Keeping your skin healthy and moisturized will ensure that your brows grow out strong and full.
Four steps toward growing thicker, fuller eyebrows
Now that we have gone over the basics, let’s jump into products and practices that can boost your brow game. Just knowing and implementing these simple steps can make a huge difference in the results of your eyebrow growth.
Here is our list of brow boosting techniques to achieve the brows of your dreams:
Exfoliate and moisturize your brows regularly
If you find yourself struggling with healthy brow growth, try exfoliating and moisturizing regularly. Not only does exfoliating your brows result in the removal of dead skin cells and buildup under your brows, it can assist in increasing circulation. Additionally, moisturizing your brows ensures that the skin underneath doesn't get dry or irritated, causing additional issues.
Avoid over-plucking your brows
For some, it is incredibly easy to hyper-focus on plucking your brows. Unfortunately, this can cause long lasting or even permanent hair loss. The reason over-plucking becomes detrimental is due to the trauma the hair follicle experiences. Excessive plucking, pulling, or yanking, can lead to permanent scarring or even complete hair loss. Unfortunately, over plucking is one of the primary reasons people begin to see thinning or patchy eyebrow regrowth.
Remember: there’s a difference between healthy, regular plucking, and plucking every day for months at a time.
Consider using an eyebrow serum
Thankfully, for those of us struggling with consistent hair growth, there are eyebrow serums formulated to help you get the regrowth you’ve been looking for. There are multiple brands and formulas geared to targeting your specific needs. If you feel overwhelmed, try speaking with our brow specialists at your next brow waxing appointment for recommendations (like our favorite that we sell in house, Lash Fridays Pure Lash Serum)!
Condition your brows with oil
Just like applying special oils can help aid in regrowing the hair on your scalp, the same concept applies to your eyebrows. Depending on your needs, finding an oil such as castor oil or rosemary oil can promote new cell turnover or deposit vital nutrients to encourage hair growth.
