If you’re suffering from eyebrow loss, whether due to illness, age, diet or even just over-tweezing, you don’t have to live without eyebrows forever. There are many options to regrow lost eyebrows , including natural remedies, vitamin supplements and prescription medications.
First, several hair growth treatments are available by prescription from a dermatologist. Rogaine, a product everyone has seen television commercials for as a solution for male baldness, can also be used to regrow eyebrows. A women’s version of the product is available, which can be applied to the brow area twice daily with a cotton swab. It may take a few months to see results but it has been shown to successfully regrow eyebrows in users. You can actually find an article on Oprah’s website hear talking about using Rogaine to speed up the growth of eyebrows. Likewise, Latisse, a prescription medication originally developed to promote eyelash growth, can also be used to grow new eyebrow hair.
If you do not want to take a prescription medication, vitamin supplements can also be used to regrow eyebrows. Viviscal, a supplement made up of marine proteins, acerola cherry and horsetail extract, hydrates hair follicles and promotes healthy hair growth.
There are numerous beauty treatments that can be applied topically to eyebrows as well to stimulate hair growth. Anastasia, a celebrity brow artist famous for creating perfectly shaped brows, developed her own product, Anastasia Brow Enhancing Serum, that contains peptides, vitamins and botanical extracts. Not only does the product hydrate and condition brows and prevent breakage, but it also feels cooling and soothing upon application.
RapidLash, another peptide, vitamin and mineral-based serum, also uses the same principles to regrow and maintain both eyebrows and lashes.
There are numerous other treatments available such as RevitaBrow, Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel, Talika Eyebrow Lipocils, Nutra Luxe Lash MD and Rejuvi Eyebrow Revitalizer, that range in price from $5 to $100. Since the success of these types of treatments depends on the individual and their particular body chemistry, it often comes down to a case of trial and error.
For a more cost-efficient option to regrow your eyebrows or for those who don’t want to use medications or chemical treatments, there are also quite a few natural remedies that have been shown to successfully regrow eyebrow hair.
One of the most popular natural methods for eyebrow regrowth is castor oil. The unique chemical composition of this oil can help to regrow hair by gently massaging it on the brow area for several minutes each day. After the oil has been massaged into the skin and allowed to sit for about 30 minutes, the area should be rinsed and washed with a gentle cleanser. Like with any other product, if the area appears or feels irritated, use should be discontinued.
Another natural remedy for brow hair loss is aloe vera. Although the preferred method of application would be to squeeze the gel straight from the leaves of an aloe vera plant, the bottled gel from the store can also be used. Gently massaging the gel into your brow area for a few minutes every day can help to heal the delicate skin in that area and promote new hair growth.
Milk, because of its high protein and vitamin content, can also be used to promote hair growth. Simply dip a cotton ball in milk and apply it to the brow area each night before bed. The nutrients will nourish hair follicles and help them to grow faster.
Onions can also be used in the same manner. Grinding an onion and applying the juice to the brow area can help eyebrow hair grow in faster and denser, if you can stand the odor!
What Else is There?
Keeping the eyebrow area healthy is also important to maintaining and growing hair. As odd as it may sound, massaging the brow area gently for a few minutes each day can stimulate hair growth, as can exfoliating the area.
Be sure to also eat a vitamin and nutrient-rich diet to make sure you are not vitamin deficient, which can often to lead to hair loss. Making simple adjustments to your eating habits can often help with hair regrowth not only in the brow area but on your scalp as well.
There are many options available to suit your individual needs and desires, so try them out until you find what works for you. If you are not sure which option to try to regrow your eyebrows, speak to your doctor or dermatologist or consult with a nutritionist or cosmetologist.
