10 Quick and Easy Ways to Grow Beautiful Eyebrows
For several seasons wide, thick, and — most importantly — natural eyebrows have been in fashion. However, there’s no need to rush off to the nearest makeup salon. You can attain this stylish look at home.
Today Bright Side presents a selection of top recipes that’ll help you transform your eyebrows in no time at all!
1. Exotic oils mixture
With this recipe, you’ll not only strengthen and lengthen your eyebrows but your eyelashes as well. In a small bottle, mix equal amounts of coconut and castor oil, and then add 1 tsp avocado oil. Stir everything together. Apply the mixture to your eyebrows using a mascara brush or your fingers.
2. Gentle gel with vitamins
This mixture will help to restore and strengthen your eyebrows, making the hair smooth and shiny. Mix 1 tsp aloe gel, 2 tsp castor oil, and 2 capsules of vitamin E. Apply the mixture with a brush or your fingers before going to bed. Rinse off in the morning.
3. Onion juice
Onion juice nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, accelerates hair growth, and adds shine. Take one small onion, chop it finely, and extract the juice. Apply the juice to your eyebrows, and massage it in for 5 minutes. Rinse off with your regular cleanser and cool water. Or you can simply wipe your eyebrows with an onion slice, as shown in this video.
4. Milk facial mask
Milk contains protein, vitamin B, lactic acid, and calcium. It restores and protects your hair while stimulating collagen production. Dip a cotton swab in whole milk, and wipe your eyebrows, as shown in this video. Let the milk dry, then rinse it off with your regular cleanser.
5. Lemon juice
Lemons are a valuable source of vitamins and antioxidants, essential for strengthening hair and making it grow. But be careful — lemon juice may have a noticeable lightening effect.
Wipe your eyebrows with a slice of lemon, like in this video, wait for 15-20 minutes, then rinse the juice off. Alternatively, you can make an infusion using lemon slices and a quarter cup of coconut oil. Leave the mixture for 15 days in a cool place, then start applying it to your eyebrows every day before going to sleep.
6. Essential oils
For the best effect, we recommend tea tree oil or lavender oil, which are known for their soothing, strengthening, and moisturizing properties. They are best used together with a base oil (coconut, olive, or castor). Be sure to test each component for any allergic reaction by applying small amounts of the oil to the crook of your elbow. Make a mixture of essential and base oils, and lightly massage it into your eyebrows. Repeat the treatment daily.
7. Egg yolk
Egg yolks are a rich source of vitamins and proteins that strengthen and thicken the eyebrow hair along its whole length. Take one egg yolk, whip it, and apply it to your eyebrows. Leave it for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off.
Vaseline is used for moisturizing and conditioning eyebrows. It’s also great for making them grow and giving them an attractive shape. Apply pure Vaseline to your eyebrows, as shown in this video, having previously removed any makeup and washed your face. You can also mix Vaseline with castor oil, olive oil, aloe vera, essential oils, or milk.
Using a clean mascara brush, comb your eyebrows thoroughly with up and down movements, going from the bridge of your nose to your temples and back again. Next, proceed to massage your eyebrows lightly with your fingers. After that, switch to intense stroking movements, pressing and pinching the skin. Press at a spot in the middle of an eyebrow and, without releasing your finger, begin making circular movements, gradually widening the radius. Repeat with the other brow. This massage will not only improve blood circulation and promote the absorption of nutrients but also remove headaches and eye fatigue.
10. Proper nutrition
It is useful to review your diet as well. You should always include foods that are rich in proteins, vitamins, and amino acids (such as nuts, meat, poultry, salmon, fruit, vegetables, eggs, greens, and onions).
And finally, some important advice:
Regardless of which recipe you choose, make sure to apply the treatments daily or at least several times a week. This way, you’ll soon find your eyebrows greatly improved!
