Full brows are having their moment right now, and for good reason too. They look fabulous and give your face personality and depth. Keeping them in shape isn’t without some work though. Full brows might seem like they wouldn’t require much maintenance, but the truth is that you’ll have to stay on them to make sure they flow the way you want them to. Here are all the tips you need to naturally grow lovely thick brows in no time.
1. Hit the Grocery Store and Buy Some Castor Oil
This old school remedy works wonders for your brows. All you have to do is gently massage it into your brows. This stimulates the blood flow and encourages healthy growth. The best way to do this is to apply the oil at night, then allow it to work while you sleep, rinsing it off in the morning. Look for castor oil in the first aid or health section of your supermarket.
2. Juice an Onion in Your Kitchen
Sounds weird, right? Well, according to experts, onion juice is rich in sulfur, which encourages your brows to grow and fill in. Grind a small onion and massage the juice into your brows. Allow it to sit for five minutes, then rinse. If this causes irritation, skip it and try something else.
3. Rub on a Small Dab of Petroleum Jelly
Also known as Vaseline, this product works because it conditions and moisturizes your brows. When your brow area is healthy and hydrated, it’s better at giving you the brows you want. As a bonus, Vaseline helps keep stray brow hairs in place for a polished and healthy look. You only need a small bit or you’ll wind up looking shiny.
4. Load Your Plate with Orange and Yellow Foods
Foods that are orange or yellow in color are high in vitamin A, which your body needs to grow healthy hair, including the hair in your brow area. The vitamins are found in healthy foods, so if your diet is more junk than fruits and vegetables, making this switch is easy and should produce results in a just a couple of weeks. Bell peppers, carrots, cantaloupe and sweet potatoes are perfect choices.
5. Have Some Sunflower Seeds for a Snack
Why? Because they are loaded with vitamin E, a nutrient that promotes healthy hair, skin and nails. Since your brows are hair, they benefit from increasing your intake. Roasted sunflower seeds make a great snack because they give you energy and they taste good. If you can benefit your brows at the same time, why not give them a try? Opt for the unsalted version to keep sodium intake under control.
6. Crack an Egg and Separate the Yolk
Eating eggs is great for your health, but the yolks are also especially powerful when it comes to promoting hair growth in your brow area. Once you have the yolk separated, whip it until creamy. Then coat your entire brow with the yolk and let it go to work for about 15 minutes before rinsing. This method infuses the area with protein, which is one of the building blocks of healthy hair.
7. Stop Waxing or Plucking Right Now
Contrary to what you’ve heard, this doesn’t promote hair growth. All it does is thin out your brows and keep you from getting the look you want. Sure, get rid of stray hairs so you look polished, but give the rest of your brows a chance to grow and shape the way you want them.
