We recently blogged about a new product that mimics the appearance of eyebrow hair to give you fuller looking brows, but how can you go about actually re-growing your eyebrow hair after over-tweezing?
The key is to nourish from the inside, give nature a helping hand and above all, be patient.
1. Put the tweezers down
We all know how tempting it is to pluck any stray hairs to keep your eyebrows looking neat, but if you are trying to grow them out it is important to give your brows a break from tweezing. During this in-between stage, use an eyebrow pencil to help enhance definition.
2. Eat well
Eating a diet rich in vitamins and minerals will help to promote overall health and hair regrowth. Try to eat more fruits and vegetables known for their antioxidant content and if in doubt, go for brightly coloured fruit and veg.
When left untreated, stress can actually lead to hair loss. Counteract this by dealing with your stress in a healthy way. Gentle exercise like yoga can be especially beneficial, in fact the Times of India say there are certain postures that benefit hair growth as it boosts circulation of blood to the head.
4. Stimulate hair growth
Try to get in the habit of conditioning your brows every night before you go to bed. Using circular motions, massage an oil rich in hair-healthy ingredients like vitamin E and coconut oil into the brows themselves, focusing on sparse areas.
The final step is to be patient and wait for your brows to grow. If you pluck your brows it can take up to two months for the delicate hair to grow back, but the results will be worth waiting for.
Once your eyebrows have grown back in you can use Beauty Resource to help you find someone to shape them – just use the advanced search tool.
