How Can I Regrow My Brows?
Regrowing brows can be a tough journey! If your brows fell victim to the super-thin trend of the 2000s, getting full and natural brows back can be tough - but not impossible. Or, if you’re just trying a new shape - or even trying to rescue your brows from a shaping mishap - regrowing brows is straightforward with these simple tips.
1) Retire Your Tweezers
If you are trying to regrow over plucked brows, one of the best things you can do is to retire your tweezers for a few months. While it can be tempting to just ‘pluck that one stray hair’ here and there, it might be too easy to get carried away and end up overplucking again - leaving you to start over the entire process.
Be prepared to leave your tweezers to gather dust for a few months - because of the length of the hair renewal process, it may actually take a few cycles for your eyebrows to return to their original fullness.
2) Remove Makeup Thoroughly
Not removing eyebrow gel or pomade properly can actually get in the way of your natural brow hair growth. It can clog pores and damage hair follicles, causing your brow hairs to fall out prematurely and leaving bald patches and gaps.
Make sure you’re removing your makeup well at the end of the day with micellar water. Proper makeup removal products like these ones - NOT makeup wipes - help to actually remove makeup from your skin, instead of just pushing it around like makeup wipes do.
Another tip for removing makeup from brows to encourage growth is to be gentle. Don’t roughly rub back and forth - gently swipe until all traces of makeup are gone to support your brow hair’s natural growth pattern.
3) Use a Brow Growth Serum
A brow growth serum is one of the best things that you can use in your journey to save over plucked brows. They help to nourish your brows from all angles: conditioning brow hairs, supporting their growth, and preventing them from falling out.
By conditioning your brow hairs, a brow serum prevents them from getting brittle and dry due to makeup application. Dry, brittle eyebrow hairs are more likely to snap off or fall out, leading to bald patches and gaps in your brows.
Some brow serums also have ingredients that alter your eyebrow growth cycle. This is the most important when it comes to restoring stubby hair that just doesn't seem to grow - here’s why.
Like some eyelash serums, brow serums can boost hair growth by keeping your hair in the anagen, aka the growth phase, for longer. When hair is kept in this phase, it grows longer than it normally would, adding essential length for fuller, thicker brows.
4) Have Patience
This is the hardest pill to swallow - but just being willing to wait to regrow brows will go a long way on your brow journey. The truth is, it may take more than a few hair growth cycles for your brows to recover or to look as they did before any plucking or waxing. However, having patience pays off in the long run.
Staying focused on the end results - fuller, thicker, supermodel brows - will make the wait to regrow your brows easier.
