To solve the thin eyebrow problem, consider doing the following things:

  1. Stop plucking: The hardest, yet easiest way to get brows growing back is to simply stop plucking or waxing at least for a period of three months or more, depending on your individual hair growth rate. This is because; over plucking the eyebrows can lead to sparse and unattractive eyebrow. But beyond this, plucking hair leaves your pores open and as such vulnerable to potential harmful bacteria or infection. Also, plucking too much damages your follicles. Follicles are responsible for generating hair growth. So you want to be careful how you pluck if you want to maintain a health full eyebrow hair.
  2. Exfoliate Your Eyebrow: It’s important to remember to exfoliate your eyebrows always. Use a brow scrub product of your choice which removes dead skin cells under and around the brows to enable easy hair growth through the skin. When you exfoliate, the skin underneath your brow finds it easy to breathe in air which encourage smooth circulation and new growth.
  3. Use Natural Remedies: There are some products you can use to grow your eyebrow naturally. Let’s look at some of them below:
  • Onion Juice: The reason onion juice is considered to help induce proper hair growth is because Onions have rich sulfur content in them. Sulfur improves the production of collagen tissues which is necessary for hair growth. Hair grows from hair follicles in the scalp; increased blood supply to the scalp brings better nutrients and nourishment to the follicles and promotes hair growth. The sulfur content in onion juice helps to achieve that. More-so, it has anti-bacterial properties which prevent growth of fungi and bacteria on scalps of the brow affected by plucking. Onion juice also strengthens hair and prevents thinning and breakage.

How to use this: Extract juice from grinded onions, massage juice into the eyebrows for about 5 minutes, carry for at least 30 minutes and allow it to dry, and then wash off with a mild shampoo and cold water. Follow this treatment once daily for several weeks to maximize growth. It is completely safe to use onion to promote hair growth as because onion has no side effects or allergies. So there is really no need to use harsh chemicals on your brow when you have an easy, cheap and safe method for promoting hair growth.

  • Rosemary Oil Scalp Massage: A simple way to stimulate hair growth is to give yourself a scalp massage; this will increase blood flow to your scalp, enhance the strength of your roots, and help nutrients get to your follicle faster when combined with Rosemary oil. Rosemary oil has worked for centuries to stimulate hair growth. This is because it dilates blood vessels and stimulates scalp follicles to produce new growth.

How to use this: Give yourself a rosemary oil scalp massage, take a couple of drops, rub on your brow and massage in, wash off with mild shampoo after 3o minutes.

  • Egg Yolk: The hair of the eyebrows is made up of keratin protein, and egg is a great source of protein. Egg yolk contains lecithin and protein which helps to strengthen, nourish, and heal hair strands; this however, makes the eyebrows thicker.
