How to Let Your Eyebrows Grow Naturally & Beautifully

Ah yes, the brows—the “frame” of the eyes. Throughout the years, eyebrows have taken on many shapes, styles, and levels of boldness. Lately, natural eyebrows have taken the spotlight, and we’re low-key excited about this trend.

Back in the early 2000s, everyone felt a nonsensical urge to reshape their brows to make them look like Christina’s Aguilera infamous paper clip brow.

Luckily, trends in overplucking have subsided. We have finally arrived at a place in aesthetics where the natural brow is having a moment.

There are, of course, many other common reasons for sparse brows, from environmental to genetic, and aging. Anything from an overactive immune system, nutritional deficiency, trauma, or infection of the skin can affect the brows.

Whether preference or circumstance, there are plenty of ways to fight the good fight for thicker brows. Try these GR8 ways to let your eyebrows grow naturally and beautifully.

Stroke the Strands

Combing the hair on your eyebrows may seem strange at first if you’ve never done it. But it can work wonders in stimulating the hair follicles to facilitate growth. Exfoliate first, then brush the hair upwards with a spoolie brush or toothbrush. Do this twice a day, twenty times each brow.

Keep them Hydrated

Staying hydrated is one of the best ways to promote hair and nail health. Aim for a gallon a day if you’re trying to kick hair growth into overdrive.

Try Supplementation

Try adding biotin, collagen, or prenatal supplements to support hair growth. Be mindful that excess nutrients for long periods of time can be harmful, so consult with your doctor before considering any of these.

Give them Oil Massages

Coconut, olive, and castor oil are giants in the beauty industry for a reason. Try massaging any of these into your brows once a day. Comb the strands with a spoolie brush for added stimulation.

Resist the Urge

Put. The tweezers. Down. Overplucking is tempting, and a lot of times unintentional. Stay away by allowing your brows to grow for some time. The same goes for scheduling a waxing appointment every so often.

Go Barefaced

Going without makeup will give your pores and your hair follicles a chance to breathe. Go without makeup for a while to avoid any abrasion of the skin’s natural barrier, ensuring that your brows have the best possible opportunity to grow.

Survey your Stock

Take notice of your go-to products. Are you fully aware of what you’re putting on your face? Some products may contain chemicals that prevent or slow brow hair regeneration. Take a few minutes to research them if you’re not sure, and eliminate any that may be hindering growth.

Forget Sweat and Tears, but Blood Might Do it

This one is a bit unconventional and not offered everywhere. Some medspas provide a treatment where blood is drawn, followed by extraction of the plasma. The plasma is then injected into the hair follicles to stimulate growth over time. This is known as a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection, and you need a dermatologist to perform it.

Following these steps will help your eyebrows find their groove and start growing more naturally. Full, beautiful, and natural brows are everything, and we think everyone deserves their best brow.
