Important Tips:

  • Sometimes, deficiency of Vitamins can hamper hair growth. So its beneficial to eat foods rich in Vitamins B, C, E and H (Biotin) or also to take multi-vitamin tablets/capsules after seeking doctor’s advice.
  • Avoid picture perfect threading of eyebrows, as it sometimes ruin the natural eyebrow shape.
  • If you have naturally thin eyebrows avoid shaping them. However, slight modifications are fine as long as they don’t play with the shape and width.
  • Any lotion or makeup, if applied on the eyebrows, tends to weaken them. Naturally, the tiny hairs tend to fall off or take a long time in growing back. It is best not to apply any lotion on the eyebrow, unless it is for hair growth.
  • Make sure that the shape of the eyebrows suits your face type, as there are different shapes that suit different face structures.
  • Also you sometimes can use eyebrow pencils to define your thin eyebrows.
  • Try avoiding accidental threading and plucking of the eyebrows as this could possibly reduce the hair growth in the area. So just incase it happens, make sure you apply almond, coconut or castor oil to get back the natural hair growth.
  • To fasten the growth of eyebrows, it is essential to avoid frequent brow makeup. Aggressive rubbing of eyebrows with brow pencil or use of brow dyes deteriorates the brow condition in the long run.

Some of these basic steps, when adapted in your daily routine, will help you keep your eyebrows natural, with excellent shape and texture, thus enhancing your beauty and glow.

Hope these tips will help you to achieve desired results.

    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 :)

    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!

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

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

          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);)

  • 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.
