I had brow envy when I saw Clara Delevingne and Margo Robbie’s eyebrows, and I considered getting microblading. However, after much thought and research, I decided not to do it after seeing microblading gone wrong, and who knows maybe in a year brows style will change back to thin and svelte again.
As of now, I am happy to report that my brows are as thick as I want them to be as I decided to grow them naturally using these tricks for the last four months:
Use Castor Oil nightly
Castor oil is an effective remedy for thin eyebrows because of its rich content of fatty acids, nutrients, and minerals. The oil helps to nourish and moisturize your follicles while also triggering hair growth from dormant follicles.
It is an abundant source of ricinoleic acid which helps add volume and also curbs rapid brow loss. The fatty acid stimulates dormant hair follicles while the other nutrients nourish it enough to promote healthy hair re-growth.
Castor oil also has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties which can help soothe any possible inflammation or aggravation that might be leading to your brows thinning out.
Stay away from tweezers, waxing, or threading
Four years ago, I went to Miami and made the gravest mistake of having someone wax my brows. The wax happy technician made me look like Pamela Anderson circa 1990’s. Also, one wrong tweeze of the hair, and can end up asymmetrically changing the shape of your hair growth. 🙈 As for threading, it’s like waxing plus it’s worst because the hair growth takes longer to grow back due to the technique.
Take hair producing supplements
Collagen is a natural amino acid that most of us already know is good for our skin, and can also be used for hair growth. It happens to be the most abundant protein present in the body. This long-chain amino acid is composed of four individual amino acids: proline, glycine, arginine, and hydroxyproline.
Collagen plays a big part in renewing cells and is responsible for maintaining the strength and elasticity of bones, joints, tendons, skin, eyes, internal organs, nails and hair.
Spirulina is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins, and other nutrients. It is mostly made up of protein and essential amino acids, and is typically recommended to vegetarians due to its high natural iron content.
In one double-blind study showed that participants who took spirulina once a day reported significant improvements in hair thinning, and considerably lusher locks by the end of the study.
Spirulina’s ability to support hair growth may be due to its impressive offering of copper and iron – minerals that are vital to healthy hair.
This superfood algae has enormous potential in boosting hair and skin health. It is an all-natural beauty-boosting superfood, that will produce dewy skin as well as shiny hair in no time.
Sending weekend beauty vibes! 💋
