Now even scientific studies have proven that bold eyebrows are the single most important feature of our face — far more than eyes and lips for “emotional expression as well as facial recognition”.
In fact, Yahoo Health goes so far to claim that, ” …eyebrows may be a sort of facial signature — a way of distinguishing one person’s mug from another’s.”
So, it comes as no surprise that bold, thick brows seem to be in perpetual fashion and with them stand a zillion eyebrow pencils, powders, pomades and gels to enhance what you (don’t) have.
But what if you could actually grow more brow hairs, making the whole process of getting your eyes all dressed up both natural and effortless?
It’s not too difficult, especially with these super effective home remedies to help along your natural brows.
So, here’s everything you need to know about how to get thicker eyebrows — easily and effectively.
Thick brow booster #1: Castor oil
Whether you are wondering how to grow eyebrows back after an overzealous round of plucking (me!) or wish to give nature a boost, massage castor oil into your eyebrows on a daily basis (nighttime works best).
Castor oil works like a topical hair regrowth serum as its proteins, vitamins and antioxidants not only nourish the hair follicles, they also help in resisting any microorganisms or fungal infections that hamper eyebrow hair growth.
Thick brow booster #2: Olive oil
Have thin brows? Olive oil is a great option as it’s extremely rich in Vitamin E, which is known as the beauty vitamin that makes sparse brows grow faster and thicker, while keeping them dark-hued.
You do not need a large amount of the oil for thicker brows — dab a drop on both brows and massage gently, preferably twice a day.
Thick brow booster #3: Whole milk
Whole milk is one the most effective natural remedies for achieving thick brows. Simply dip a cotton bud in the milk and apply it daily on the brow area.
Thick brow booster #4: Aloe vera
If growth is hindered by the blockage of hair follicles because of excess oil (this normally happens when you have oily or acne-prone skin), apply pure aloe vera gel directly onto your brows.
Thick brow booster #5: Fenugreek seeds
Another way to get thicker eyebrows? Fenugreek seeds offer up one of the most popular treatments for a fuller look and dark eyebrows.
Grind a handful into a paste and mix with a little almond oil. Massage this into your eyebrows every night and wash off in the morning.
Thick brow booster #6: Natural oils
Still wondering how to grow eyebrows back? Or get those much coveted full brows in the absence of what nature has bestowed upon you?
Mix together one teaspoon each of lavender oil, rosemary oil, thyme oil, pine oil, lavender essential oil, lemon essential oil and jojoba oil. Comb this this mixture into your eyebrows daily (a spoolie brush works great here!), before going to bed.
Thick brow booster #7: The internal story
Nutritional deficiencies hamper the growth of thick eyebrows. So, make sure sure your body gets all the minerals, proteins and vitamins in appropriate quantities — especially iron, magnesium, silica, biotin, zinc, sulfur and vitamin B6 — for fuller brows.
Got the perfect brows you coveted? Here’s how to keep them going strong
Once your eyebrows are thick and lush, get them reshaped professionally.
And remember to keep checking the progress of your technician every few minutes — that way, if your hair is being plucked or waxed too thin, the situation can be immediately remedied. Try to pluck only the stray hairs and not disturb the actual brows for the best results!
