What are healthy good-looking eyebrows? Brows that are naturally full and extend to the corner of your eyes, and are only seen on children. Once upon a time, it was a trend to have really skinny eyebrows. Thank God that trend is over. Unfortunately, that trend has made a lot of women tweezer happy which caused a lot of you to over pluck. Now the results are really thin, balding brows that doesn’t seem to have the ability to grow again.
How does eyebrow hair stop growing?
To better answer this question, I had to do some research. Here’s what I found. According to Into The Gloss , there are 3 stages to eyebrow hair growth.
Anagen Phase: Active growing
Catagen Phase: Growth stops
Telogen Phase: Hair is at rest
The hair, then falls out and another strand grows in its place. When your force remove hair, with a tweezer, it disrupts that growth cycle. Doing this repeatedly over a period of time in the same area can hinder the growth cycle semi-permanently, or even cause a hair loss condition called Traction Alopecia , which is the same as getting hair braided too tight around your edges, and even when you constantly re-twist your locs, making it harder to regrow over tweezed brows. Allure.com gives insight on what Traction Alopecia is and ways to fix it.
How can I grow my eyebrows? Is it even possible?
Don’t worry! Restoring your brows is possible. Imagine your eyebrow hairs as a plant. You just need to take care of it, and give it its nutrients. First, stop plucking! I know this step is difficult, but not plucking allows your hairs to retake its shape and to become healthy again. Taking a multivitamin plus biotin and zinc, along with a moisturizer, that has a protein serum that encourages hair growth will make a world of difference.
What can I do while I wait?
