It took me a very long time to get my eyebrows to this point. I went through the face in high school where over tweezing was cool and thin eyebrows were in style, at least I thought so. I also had an incident with an eyebrow razer and half of my eyebrow went missing (that one took a long time to grow back). I thought I would share some tips for growing out your brows since it was a struggle for me for a long time.
1. BE PATIENT
This is the most important step. And the hardest. I failed many times and went straight back to my tweezers when I would get frustrated. Your brows are going to look a mess for a while, that is ok. Concealer is your friend.
2. DRINK LOTS OF WATER
I started noticing the most growth mot only in my eyebrows, but my hair and nails as well, when I drank more water. My minimum goal for water consumption is 65 oz, but I shoot for a gallon a day. I know that sounds crazy, but you really get used to it. And there are so many more benefits than just hair growth.
3. EAT MORE VEGETABLES
Nutrition makes the biggest difference in hair growth and skin. Start from within first to see the best results.
4. ONLY TWEEZE WHERE NECESSARY
When tweezing, fill your brows in how you want them to look.. then only tweeze the hairs that are outside of the area that you filled in. This will prevent over-tweezing and accidentally plucking hairs that you didn’t mean to. I only tweeze my brows when they are filled in.
5. Castor Oil
Castor oil is known for promoting hair growth and conditioning your eyebrows and eyelashes. Mix castor oil and either almond oil or coconut oil together in an empty mascara wand and apply to your brows and lashes every night. This helped me tremendously!
Let me know if you try any of these tips and if they work for you! 🙂
