The sub-heading itself is enough to give us an idea about the procedure. It revolves around the application of a ‘root dye’ that offers temporary coverage to the white or grey hairs in eyebrows. You can avail these dyes in simple mascara-like containers. You can use them anytime and anywhere to give the roots of your brow-hairs a nice touch-up.

Pros And Cons Of Using Temporary Dye:

  • Simple, easy and fast to use. All you need is to brush it on the white hairs carefully. There is no possibility of messing up.
  • Gives a beautiful natural look, while making the color slightly fuller in appearance.
  • Offers short-term results that can last for maximum 24 hours, i.e., one whole day.
  • Gets washed off by water as it is not a waterproof version. So, reapplication may be needed if the brows come in contact with water.
  • Not that expensive.

2. Applying A Regular Hair Dye:

Coloring the grey or white hair in eyebrows with a regular hair dye is known to be the most popular method for this purpose. You can either get your brows dyed by a hairstylist at a salon or simply do it by your own in your home.

Pros And Cons Of Using Regular Dye:

  • The application is slightly tricky. One needs to be very careful while applying it.
  • Can get messed up, if proper method is not followed and you may end up staining your skin.
  • Needs more time than the previous technique.
  • Gives a beautiful and natural look.
  • Offers long-lasting results, which can range from a few weeks to a couple of months.
  • A bit costlier.

How To Color Eyebrows At Home To Hide White Hair

Though you can ask your hairstylist to color the white hair in your brows while coloring your gorgeous locks, it is always better to go for the DIY method. This can save both your time and money. So, just take the plunge and do it on your own. Here are the steps that you have to follow:

Step 1:

Start with cleansing your eyebrows thoroughly. There is no need to apply a facial wash. Rather, do it by using a simple cotton pad and lukewarm water. Once you are done with it, pat dry the brows and the surrounding skin gently.

Step 2:

Apply petroleum jelly (Vaseline is absolutely the perfect choice) liberally to the skin around both of your eyebrows. This is important so that you do no end up staining your skin during the procedure. However, make sure that you do not apply it on your brows. Otherwise, they would not be able to hold on the color.

What does white eyebrow hair indicate?

Premature white eyebrows may indicate an underlying medical issue. However, white eyebrows can be a sign of aging. It is normal for your eyebrow hairs to turn gray as you age.
