Natural Remedies For Thicker Eyebrows

Thick and full eyebrows are a trait that everyone admires and have always been in demand. The real purpose of our eyebrows, aside from enhancing our appearance, is to help keep moisture out of our eyes from environmental irritants. The arch shape of our brows helps divert external elements like rain or sweat to the side of our face and keep our vision clear.

Excessive loss of eyebrow hair can often indicate health conditions like madarosis, hypothyroidism, or alopecia. It can also indicate how stressed you are or whether you suffer a deficiency in protein or vitamins.

Whatever the underlying cause may be, there are natural remedies — many of which you might already own — that you can try to help promote eyebrow growth.

Natural Remedies for Fuller and Thicker Eyebrows

If you’re having trouble attaining your optimal eyebrow growth, then try applying some of these natural oils and herbs:

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains nutrients like iron and vitamin E that help promote thick and healthy hair growth. Coconut oil is loaded with fatty acids like lauric acid, which are known to penetrate the hair and prevent protein loss, the foundation for healthy hair.

How to apply

  • Take a few drops of coconut oil and gently massage your eyebrows with a cotton ball or fingertips.
  • Rinse with warm water the next morning.

Castor Oil

Castor oil is extremely effective for thin eyebrows because of its rich nutrient content, including fatty acids and essential minerals. Together, they work to nourish and moisturize the follicles while also promoting hair growth of dormant follicles.

How to apply  

  • Submerge a cotton swab in pure castor oil and apply to each eyebrow.
  • Massage eyebrows gently for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Leave it on overnight.
  • Rinse in the morning with warm water.

Olive Oil

You can utilize olive oil to thicken your eyebrows as well. Like coconut and castor oil, olive oil contains vitamin E, which helps promote hair growth by stimulating your capillaries. When your capillaries are healthy, blood circulation is flowing, which is essential for healthy hair growth. Olive oil also contains a fatty acid called oleic acid, which penetrates the eyebrow’s hair root and locks in much-needed moisture.

How to apply

  • Dap a cotton ball in olive oil and gently massage your eyebrows.
  • Leave it on overnight.
  • Wash off with warm water.

Egg Yolk

Eggs are a rich source of protein, and protein is essential for hair growth. Egg yolks don’t contain as much protein as egg whites, but they do have a considerable amount of vitamin D, which is vital for healthy hair growth.

How to apply

  • Break the egg and separate the yolk from the egg whites.
  • Beat the yolk until it’s a creamy consistency.
  • Take a cotton ball and apply it to your eyebrows.
  • Leave it on until it dries then rinse with cold water.

Onion Juice

Although it doesn’t sound appealing to rub onion juice onto your face, onions are very effective for hair growth. Onions contain rich sources of antioxidants called flavonols and sulfur – which is an essential mineral found in hair. According to a study, participants struggling with alopecia areata applied onion juice on their scalp, twice a day, for 4 to 6 weeks and, as a result, experienced new hair growth.

How to apply 

  • Grind an onion and extract the juice.
  • Gently massage the onion juice on your eyebrows for 5 minutes.
  • Allow it to dry on its own.
  • Wash off with cold water.

Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek seeds are extremely popular for their ability to stop hair loss and promote hair growth. They contain high sources of nicotinic acid (vitamin B3) and lecithin, which both work together to help strengthen your hair shaft while preventing shedding. Using fenugreek on a consistent basis makes your eyebrows appear darker and denser while giving them a healthy shine.

How to apply

  • Soak a handful of fenugreek seeds overnight.
  • Grind them into a thick paste.
  • Add 2 to 3 drops of your choice of carrier oil.
  • Apply the paste to your eyebrows before going to bed.
  • Rinse the next morning with warm water.

Attaining thick eyebrows isn’t hard to achieve with a proper beauty regimen. Along with the natural remedies shared here, a balanced diet of the right superfoods, vitamins, and minerals will help you achieve the hair growth you desire.

It’s always best to do a patch test on your skin before you try any new treatment. If you happen to be allergic to any of the previously mentioned remedies, do not use or continue the treatments. If the reaction gets worse, call your doctor immediately.
