HOW TO REGROW YOUR EYEBROWS

MY EYEBROW REGROWTH CHALLENGE

Like most women, since the 90’s I have (over) plucked my eyebrows and at the time while it seemed all cool and stylish, well forward to today and that has all dramatically changed all over again.

Eyebrows have gone through a reinvention revolution since the beginning of time and we are now back to a bold brow and that is thanks in large part to supermodel Cara Delevingne and also the Kardashian/Jenner clan.

Since my 90’s (over) plucking my eyebrows, they really haven’t regrown as much – well I guess it would help if stopped reaching for those tweezers – and since the bold thick brow is back and isn’t really going anywhere anytime soon just yet, I have used fillers, eyebrow mascaras and pencils just to give it the illusion of a ‘thicker’ brow. And not too bad a job I have to say but still…

So this weekend I decided once and for all, the plucking shall be stopped (the odd tidying up is OK but no more than two or three flay strands) and the regrowth is to begin …therefore I have given myself a eyebrow challenge!!

But how does one’s eyebrows regrow again after it has been over plucked to death? Is it even possible to get eyebrows looking like Kim Kardashian’s?? Well, apparently you can!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

All you need is castor oil, a toothbrush (you can use a mascara brush) and Vitamins B (especially biotin).

START FROM THE INSIDE:

Like everything else, you need to give your body what it needs to produce healthy hair. So make sure to eat plenty of protein and foods that are high in essential fatty acids.

But to speed up the process, you can supplement your body with B vitamins (make sure to get Biotin) which  has been shown to promote hair growth as well as vitamins C and A.

WHY CASTOR OIL?

Castor oil is found to have so many many benefits mainly for hair and skin and has very high penetrative power which helps to act deep from the skin and activate hair growth.

Use your toothbrush (obviously one you’re not currently using to brush your teeth with) or a mascara brush and dab a little of the castor oil on it and just brush your eyebrows with it. Gentle brushing strokes for like five minutes on each side. The brushing will invigorate (.i.e. wake them up literally) your eyebrows and over time it will respond.

I would expect to see some results within the next two weeks but a realistic goal to see proper thicker eyebrow results is within 12 months. It’s a long process I know but so very worth it I think.

Do I believe I will end up Kim Kardashian like eyebrows? I really don’t have the right answer for that one?! But what I do know is that this method of regrowing your eyebrows does actually work as I have seen it happen on a couple of good friends of mine.

Photo taken with my phone (Oppo R9 Plus). Just had a shower (also had a big night the beforehand so I kinda look very tired. Haha!) This is day one of my eyebrow regrowth challenge.

So whether if I will have the same type of eyebrows like I did back in the late 80’s (and actually they weren’t too bad…), well I will just have to wait and see, and will be definitely documenting it here on my blog over time to let you guys see the results.

Are you growing out your eyebrows? Do you have any tips or product recommendations to share? I would love to know in the comments below.

  • It takes up to a year and a bit, so I still have a long way to go, but I have noticed hairs that haven’t been in certain places on the eyebrows starting to come through. Its a task that has to be done every night 😀

  • I used to over pluck mine quite a bit a few years ago. Looking back at my photos, it looks terrible! I’m loving how much thicker mine are now. I do use oil in my hair, so I can imagine it works on the eyebrows too.

    Wow, I have never thought to use castor oil on the brows, but it makes sense because it works on hair! I have heard this product working wonders for hair around the hairline that may be fading…I may give this a try in the future…when I can put away the tweezers haha!

  • OH cool!! I didnt know there was something you could use to regrow. But I’m super excited to see what the end result with be like! I ended up microblading to fill in some of my brows but not a lot as I already have the thickness I wanted but needed it more defined and a little darker <3 i love it!

    Excellent post! Interestingly, I use Jamaican Castor Oil on my natural hair but have never thought about using Castor Oil on my eyebrows. This is such a great idea. I’ve had a few bad eyebrow wax jobs in the past. Although they aren’t super thin, it feels like it takes forever for my eyebrows to grow back in. Thanks so much for the tip!

  • I am so guilty of over plucking when I was younger. Luckily most of my hair has grown back; however, there are some patchy areas. I need to try this cuz it looks like such a simple solution to my problem!

    I have quite large brows but I wish they were fuller! Mine are like very light caterpillars haha. So when I leave them they’re just a bit blah, but when I fill them in they’re just a little too bold. I wish I could find a middle ground!

  • You crack me up BIG time!!! Bahahahahaha!!! I will do a follow up post in 6 or so months xx Susana

  • I’m so intrigued to see how you get on with it! I haven’t really got a problem with the amount of my eyebrow hairs just the way they grow haha. I have the straightest eyebrows in the world and can’t wait for that trend to come back again. I really want to have instagram eyebrows that go from lighter to darker with the peaky arch you have but man it just doesn’t work. Even when I have them waxed they can’t do anything about it hahaha it’s just an essential part of my resting bitch face aha xx

  • My friend swears to me and apparently even coconut oil helps too. Like I say in my post either use a mascar brush or toothbrush and brush the castor oil over your eyebrows, focusing for at least 5mins on each one. I will e doing an update on my challenge in a few months time! Good luck if you do try it!! xx Susana

  • okay, I seriously love this tip because I’ve been struggling with mine. They’re not thin but unfortunately uneven and I’m hoping it’ll re-grow back. I know eyebrows are not twins but sisters, but it’s a bit annoying isn’t it! Good luck with yours!
