Hey there and welcome back to Happy Girl Life!
Today I’m going to give you a couple of tips for growing in sparse or thin brows.
If you’re like the majority of us, you’ve allowed someone with wax and a stick (or thread) to get a little too carried away with your brow. You understandably think because they can remove hair (maybe), they’re specializing in brow shaping or care about healthy brows. Nope.
Why would having a healthy brow be important? Because your eyebrows shape your face! Your entire face can look different just by having a properly shaped brow or not.
But later with lecturing you on going to the right brow specialist. You’re here to know how to fix the problem. Unfortunately, because the wrong brow salon may be the problem, first you want to fix that issue so that you’re not going through the trouble of growing eyebrows back in just for them to be snatched away again.
2nd, the brow specialist may not be the issue. Sometimes we just start losing random hairs as we get older and our brows start to thin. Eyebrows also thin if we’re on certain medications or dealing with certain health issues. It’s good to know what’s going on with your eyebrows first to combat the issue.
In either case, you’ll want to hold off on having your eyebrows done too often. It can take eyebrows 1 – 2 years to fully grow back -- if they’ll ever grow back, in certain areas. You should never have your eyebrows done every two weeks. That’s way too often and it just means the person is taking more of your actual brow away compared to the stray hairs, for each visit.
You should have your eyebrows done every 3 – 4 weeks. Try to go longer if you’re working on growing them in and getting them healthy. Once your brows are properly shaped and growing back, you’ll find you don’t need to get them done as often if you're going to the right eyebrow salon, so “trust the process”.
You’ll also want to use some type of brow growth serum. There are several on the market -- some better than others. At Beautiful Waxing Boutique, I carry a brow rejuvenator that’s all natural oils to help stimulate the hair follicles and clear bacteria from the pores allowing for hair to grow back naturally. My clients love it! Find a brow serum like this or read the reviews before purchasing one. Be cautious of using one with too many chemicals.
You’ll also want to stay away from brow pencils where you need to press harder on your brow to fill it in or rubbing the brow too much when filling it in. That way you’re not contributing to snagging hair strands. Take a look at my article on filling in brows to learn the proper and healthy way in doing so.
Well that’s all for now. Sending you much love and badass eyebrows!
