Do you constantly wonder why you overplucked your eyebrows back in the day? Want to join the thick eyebrow craze? Here's a DIY serum that will help you.
There are many ready-made products that you can get in order to help your eyebrows grow thicker in less time, but if you are up for some homemade version, here's a proven method that will get the job done.
According to Denise Wilson of Sublime Eyes, a walk-in brow bar in Hollywood, using cold-pressed, nutrient-packed oils can help encourage hair growth. "Apply a mixture of castor oil, vitamin E, and argan oil each night by rubbing it into the brow with a Q-tip or your finger, and keep it on until morning," she says.
Ideally, you will mix all the ingredients in a 1:1:1 ratio, and then pour the mixture into a little container. "Pay attention to the areas where you are no longer growing new or thick hair. It's an old beauty secret we've been using at the salon to help clients achieve a fuller brow and even out hair. Clients usually see results in a few months."
It sounds like a lot, but a few months is nothing compared to the eternity you have to wait in order to see NO results if you don't do anything!
You might have heard that vaseline will help you get fuller brows in no time, but experts say that there is no scientific evidence to support that.
Isfahan Chambers-Harris, a PhD-level biomedical scientist, trichologist, and founder of Alodia Hair Care, says "even though Vaseline has many beauty perks, including relieving topical skin conditions, it doesn’t do much to actually stimulate hair growth for your eyebrows. However, applying Vaseline can give the appearance of fuller brows because it can coat each strand making them seem thicker. It can also work as a brow gel, helping them stay in place."
So now you know, while you wait a few months for your magic homemade serum to work, you can apply vaseline for a cosmetic solution!
