How to Grow Your Brows

How to Grow Your Brows

Fashion never stays in the same place and keeps showing us new trends. They relate not only to clothes and accessories but also makeup, hair, and the shape of our nails and brows. The latter gets a lot of attention nowadays because wide natural brows are extremely trendy.

5-Minute Crafts collected useful recommendations that will help you grow the brows of your dreams.

Let’s start with the fact that the length, width, and thickness of the eyebrows are naturally different for everyone. To find out your natural shape, look at old photographs. You need to find pics where you haven’t done any corrections to your brows yet.

If you decide to grow brows, it doesn’t mean you won’t be able to change them later. On the contrary, getting back to the natural shape will help you choose the most suitable shape for you personally. A specialist in brow architecture can help you do this.

Be patient

If you have firmly decided to grow your brows, be ready to wait — this process is not that quick as you might wish. At first, it might seem like it will take no more than 1 month because many people are used to tweezing unnecessary hairs weekly. However, in reality, it can take up to 4-6 months until your brows grow into a shape close to their natural one.

The main thing during this period is to be patient and not neglect your goal. The thing is, growing out your brows can look kind of messy at first.

Don’t touch your brows.

For the entire period that you grow your eyebrows, you will have to give up tweezers, scissors, wax, thread, and any other means that help you get rid of unwanted hairs.

Don’t get tempted to pluck out the extra hair, not even one. It’s better to go to a master on brow correction who will help you select a suitable shape for growing your brows and explain all the nuances.

Learn to disguise.

We have already mentioned that growing brows can look kind of messy. Oftentimes, they grow in patches that have some empty gaps between them. You’ll have to learn to disguise these. You can draw the missing hairs in with a special pencil or marker or fill the empty space with shadow. In order to get the hairs to go in the right direction, use styling agents like wax or gel.

Be careful when making up your brows — don’t press the pencil against your skin too hard and don’t use coarse or hard brushes. Your brow hairs might break and fall out if the treatment is too aggressive.

Correct your diet.

The food that we eat directly affects the way we look. Our body needs various vitamins and microelements for healthy hair. You need to include foods that are rich in biotin, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins C, D, and E in your diet to speed up hair growth.

Foods rich in biotin include milk, eggs, beef liver, pork, salmon, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, walnuts, bananas, and sweet potatoes. Beef and chicken liver, boiled beef, chicken, turkey, salmon, snapper, tuna, mussels, oysters, beans, chickpeas, peas, tofu, dried apricots, and spinach are rich in iron. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, eggs, milk, flaxseed, and mustard oil. In addition to oranges, vitamin C can be found in kiwis, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, and potatoes. Vitamin D is found in fatty fish (salmon, rainbow trout, sardines, perch), dairy products, including cheese, beef liver, egg yolks, as well as cereals, soy milk, and orange juice. Almonds, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, avocados, peanut butter, fish, and red bell peppers are great sources of vitamin E.

Don’t just comb the hair on your head.

We are taught to comb hair from childhood. It stimulates the saturation of the hair follicles with oxygen and nutrients. Our brow hairs need this procedure too. Comb them every day. The main thing to remember is to not overdo it because the hairs can be quite brittle. Don’t press the brush too hard and move along the direction of the hair growth.

Scrub the skin in the brow zone.

Exfoliating products are essential in skincare to get rid of dead skin cells. But for some reason, many of us avoid the eyebrow area during these procedures. But we shouldn’t!

The skin in the eyebrow area also needs to be cleansed of the stratum corneum to make room for new cells. Experts recommend doing this procedure once a week.

Massage them.

We all know that massage improves blood circulation. That’s why you should make sure to massage your eyebrows for better hair growth. It should be done 2-3 times a week with circular movements along the direction of the hair growth.

It is recommended to massage brows at the moment of applying a serum or oil.

Choose an eyebrow growth product.

Hair growth is a natural process in our body. But since we have been plucking out brow hairs for a long time, their follicles got damaged and became weaker. Our goal is to wake them up and strengthen them.

In order to speed up the process of growing brow hairs, make sure to use caring and moisturizing products. Some people give preference to ready-made serums, others use natural products. Everyone chooses according to their tastes.

When buying an eyebrow growth product, pay attention to its composition. Experts recommend serums with collagen, amino acids, peptides, biotin, and keratin. Follow the instructions when using these products.

Natural oils for brow growth
