Thick, well-shaped eyebrows, quite literally, provide a frame for your eyes. Over-plucking, though, along with a poor diet, can lead your eyebrows to get thin and sparse. If you’d like thicker looking eyebrows, naturally, then read these the great tips on how to make your eyebrows grow.
1. Sweet almond oil and linseed oil
Sweet almond oil and linseed oil, mixed together, is a natural treatment that many people say is an effective means of strengthening and thickening eyebrows. Simply massage a mixture of sweet almond and linseed oils into your eyebrows every night before going to sleep, and it will encourage the growth of thick and full brows, conditioning and strengthening them.
2. Encourage brow growth through what you eat
Just like every other part of your body, your hair and eyebrows need vitamins and minerals to be able to grow. For good, strong, healthy hair growth, add more Vitamin A to your diet, with carrots and sweet potatoes, more Vitamin C, with oranges and other fruit, and more Vitamin E, by eating more nuts and green vegetables, such as spinach.
3. Onion juice and extra virgin olive oil
Onion juice contains sulphur, which helps the body to produce the collagen that is needed for healthy eyebrow growth. Olive oil will condition and nourish your eyebrows, encouraging faster growth. Extract the juice of an onion, mix it with some olive oil and rub it into your eyebrows. Leave it on, for about ten or fifteen minutes, before washing out and it will encourage new hair growth and strengthen the hair follicles.
4. Castor oil
Castor oil is a great way to help your eyebrows grow, it contains all the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that your brows need. Just massage some castor oil into your brows and leave it on overnight, then wash out again in the morning. Do it every night for a couple of weeks and see a wonderful difference this simple treatment can make.
5. Leave them alone!
The most common cause of thin eyebrows is simply habitual over-plucking! Leave them alone for a while and give your brows a chance to grow, don’t even do any trimming. If you constantly try and neaten up your eyebrows, you are probably making them a little bit smaller, every time you do it.
6. Get some more sleep
Too much stress and not enough sleep is another surprising cause of thin eyebrows. If your brows are starting to get thin, then try doing more things that make you happy, avoid stress and be sure to get a good eight hours sleep a night. You’ll be surprised at how much difference this can make to the health of your hair and your brows.
7. Milk, honey and rose hip seed oil
You probably know that the mixture of milk and honey makes a wonderful refreshing face mask, but did you know it’s a great natural, nourishing treatment for thinning eyebrows too? Just massage a little milk and honey mixture onto your brows, leave it work its wonders for about fifteen minutes, and wash off; then apply some rose hip seed oil to your brows before you go to bed and it will nourish the hairs and encourage thicker growth.
8. Aloe Vera and sesame seed oil
Aloe Vera is the perfect solution for over-plucked eyebrows. It will soothe any redness that you may have caused, re-hydrate the skin and it will nourish the hair follicles and help to make your eyebrows grow back faster. Mix pure aloe vera gel with sesame seed oil in equal proportions and apply to your brows for about twenty minutes before rinsing off. You can also reapply sesame seed oil and leave it work its magic on your brows overnight.
9. Egg yolk and avocado oil
Hair is essentially made up of a protein called keratin and egg yolks are a superb source of protein. Beat the yolk of one egg, add a teaspoon of avocado oil and then apply it to your eyebrows. Leave it on for about fifteen minutes and then wash off. Then reapply avocado oil and leave overnight. Repeat this every other day during one month, and it will help your eyebrows grow back, thick and strong.
10. Coconut oil
Massage a few drops of warm coconut oil into your brows, before you go to bed, and leave it on overnight. If you make this a nightly routine, for at least a month, you will see a huge improvement in the growth of your eyebrows.
