These days, thick brows are all the rage. When you scroll through your Instagram feed, you will see image after image of models with gorgeous, dark eyebrows à la Cara Delevingne. For most of us, this look doesn’t come naturally. If you have naturally light eyebrows, you might use a brow pencil or gel to create the illusion of thick brows, but it isn’t quite the same. If you’re looking for a way to experience thicker brows naturally, there are some steps you can take to thicken up your brows over time, which we have compiled below.
Try Castor Oil
You may associate castor oil with its medical purposes, but it also has incredible benefits to the skin and hair. Women looking to grow their hair often use castor oil as a deep conditioning treatment. The same way it helps with growing the head on your hair, it helps to grow your eyebrows (and some women even use it on their eyelashes!). To benefit from castor oil in the form of thicker eyebrows, massage a little bit in your brows every night before bed. Over time, you will see a difference in growth.
Prioritize Biotin in Your Diet
You may have heard of biotin before if you have ever wanted to grow stronger nails. It is typical for people to take this vitamin in the form of a nutritional supplement when they are looking to grow their nails and hair. However, the best way to get any vitamin or mineral is through your diet. Fortunately, biotin is readily available in a wide variety of foods. Making an omelette with mushrooms, spinach, and tomato would be a great, biotin-rich breakfast. Avocados and sweet potatoes are also excellent sources of biotin, so incorporate these foods into your diet however you see fit.
If you wax your brows, now is the time to stop. Waxing is great for areas where you want to reduce or eliminate hair growth because over time, it causes permanent damage to the hair follicles. However, if you are trying to get thicker brows, this is sabotaging your efforts. If you’re looking for a way to still address any errant hairs while still growing out your brows, threading is the way to go. This very precise way of removing hair ensures that you only remove the hairs you don’t want without causing damage to the ones you do.
Use Aloe Vera
You may have used aloe vera on a sunburn before, but did you know that it can also help with hair growth? This is because of a compound called aloenin. To get the full benefits of it, make sure to use 100% aloe vera gel, or to use the actual plant. Simply extract the gel and rub it into your brows at night.
Treat With Vitamin E and Olive Oil
Another treatment that is effective for thicker eyebrows is to combine vitamin E and olive oil. To use, after you wash your face, heat up the oils and massage the combination into your brows. Leave it on overnight, and wash it off in the morning. This combination both thickens and darkens the hair.
