Bold brows are all the rage, but not all of us can lay a claim to the look. With sparse and scanty eyebrows, some of us are born unlucky.

Thick eyebrows can take years off your face, which is why everyone, from the catwalk models to the red carpet divas, has been seen sporting it. Not blessed with a set?

  3. Castor Oil
  4. Almond Oil
  5. Aloe Vera
  6. Jojoba Oil

1. Coconut Oil

You Will Need

  • Coconut oil
  • Cotton swab

What You Have To Do

  1. Dip the cotton swab in the oil.
  2. Apply on your eyebrows.
  3. Keep it on overnight. Rinse with a face wash.

How Often Should You Do This

You may apply coconut oil on your eyebrows every day, but using it even a few times a week can have substantial results.

Why This Works

Your eyebrows are made up of proteins. Coconut oil reduces protein loss and makes your brows stronger (1). The lauric acid present in it acts as an anti-microbial agent, preventing infection of hair follicles (2). This prevents further damage to your brows and stimulates them to grow faster.

2. Olive Oil

You Will Need

  • Extra virgin olive oil

What You Have To Do

  1. Taking a drop of olive oil on your finger tip, massage into your eyebrows.
  2. Keep it on for 1-2 hours and wash it off with face wash and water.

How Often Should You Do This

This needs to be done at least once a day in order to see results in a matter of weeks.

Why This Works

Olive oil contains Vitamins A and E, which help towards the growth of hair (3). Vitamin E nourishes each hair strand while Vitamin A stimulates the production of sebum, your body’s natural oil, which helps with hair growth (4).

Caution

Make sure that you use extra virgin olive oil, since it is unrefined and untainted by chemicals.

How Often Should You Do This

Castor oil is one the most effective remedies for getting thicker eyebrows. To have fuller eyebrows in as less as six weeks, make sure that you apply castor oil every day.

Why This Works

Pure castor oil may cause irritation, hives, and rashes if you are allergic to it. Make sure that you perform a patch test before using it.

    I had beautiful thick eyebrows for the longest time. Once about 4 years ago I had the shaped by threading. Then all of a sudden almost a year ago I started to loose my eyebrows. At the moment they are very fine and pale. I can see the start of new growth but it’s not growing very fast. I will try your natural methods and pray for the best.

  • http://www.justanotherdayinourshoes.blogspot.com/ Jannira

    I’m going to give the coconut oil a try! Hopefully it works because my eyebrows have gotten very thin (not because of plucking). I’ve also started taking super B complex. Hopefully they both help!

  • Zaheera

    Eyebrows define and accentuate your facial features. I had thick and shapely eyebrows earlier, but now they have almost faded. Will definitely include more vitamin rich-foods in my regular diet. Can’t compromise! Will try vaseline and coconut oil too. Thanks for sharing such an informative article. Will keep coming back for more :)

  • Peninah Rutebemberwa

    Just a side note: do people still promote anything with the swasticka on it?! i would never use that castor oil!!

    • KRK

      There are one billion people who would still use that. Hindus won’t mind it as it’s their auspicious sign and that is not offensive to any and not designed to offend any. In fact, Swastika was the first ‘peace’ sign designed in this world way back tens of thousands years back. ‘Swasth’ = goodness & health. It wishes health, wealth and well being to all in reality. If that was misused by some cons, it doesn’t mean that the sane need to give up that. It’s not sold with a religious undertone. If a cross or any other signs are on the bottle, I would still use the product as I require it! If the name of the brand itself is ‘Swastik’, they will use the sign too along. If few people like you don’t buy, the product won’t go to gutter anyway. The product inside the bottle remains the same in spite of the package!

      Rose by any other name…..remains still the same flower!

      • Peninah Rutebemberwa

        Oh, wow!! you learn something new everyday!!

        Still, and I’m just saying, no one remembers Lucifer’s days and significance as an angel.

        • KRK

          Hmmm…we don’t need to remember all those. True. If the products are what we need, we must go ahead & purchase! The product belongs to present, made by people who are present & made for people who are present (living);)

          Yet, I see a fine human in you friend. Good luck

  • Boo you!

    I find it both repulsive and unprofessional for the author of this article to utilize an image that represents hatred and murder. It showcase how lazy the author is to do proper research to find a better image of castor oil. It show’s poor judgment, or worse passive aggressiveness on the author’s part. If it is a real company then they to need to be ashamed of them selves. How hard is it to change the logo of a bottle? And who ever attempts to protect it need to save their breath and have their heads checked. What it used to stand back in history does not and should not apply today. Anyone with common sense should realize that. And to the author you are an ignorant fool.

    • Mr.Pedagogue

      Wanna do some research on the origin of the Swastika? The Swastika as you know it to originate from is Nazi Germany. The Symbol, was printed, sewn, painted etc. because it was symbolic of luck, goodwill. or creation Let’s break it down for a folly brain such as yours, the word derives from the primary liturgical language of Hinduism, Su (Good) asti (to be) ka (Making). This was before the bad news and genocide even took place in Nazi Germany.The swastika was used to promote Adolf Hitler’s well-being as a leader. Until after Hitler’s fall, the symbol (being associated with the Nazi group) changed it’s public but not actual definition.

    Hi Keerthi, the change in the color of your hair may happen as your hair becomes dry and brittle. Split ends are also signs of damaged hair. One of the best remedies to make your strands free from split ends, dryness, and dullness is the application of egg. There are various ways, in which, the egg can be applied to your hair. You can apply egg mixed with olive oil/almond oil and honey as a hair mask, and wash off after 30-45 minutes. You can also pour orange juice and a banana in two eggs and apply as a hair mask. Keep it for 30 minutes and wash off. These remedies are really effective in treating your hair from the problem of split ends.

    Hi Blueszephyr, application of castor oil or coconut oil does help to thicken the eyebrows with regular application. Be patient as it takes couple of weeks to show results.

    Hi Sarah, eggs are full of proteins and this ingredient provides nourishment for the hair, including eyebrows. Rub egg white on the eyebrows and keep it for 15 minutes before washing it off with plain water. Egg white or even egg yolk provides extra nourishment to the eyebrow hairs.
