Would you like your eyebrows to be naturally thicker and healthier? Reducing overplucking and using a topical hair regrowth serum combined with hair supplements can help support hair regrowth and thicker, healthier-looking eyebrows.
What are the causes of thin, sparse eyebrows?
The most common cause of sparse eyebrows is overplucking. The skin around the eyebrows is very delicate and scars quickly when the hair is plucked, leaving a permanent bald area. Aging is also a common cause of thinner brows. As we get older, we lose some hair — including eyebrow hairs. The effects of DHT on the eyebrows' hair follicles and the reduction of blood circulation in aging skin cause a slower growth of the hair on the eyebrows. Other factors include anemia, thyroid disorders, inadequate diet, iron deficiency, vitamin D, biotin, or zinc, which can also slow or stop hair growth.
How long does it take for plucked brows to regrow?
Eyebrows grow slower than scalp hair. It will usually take 3 - 4 months for visible regrowth, with optimal results after 6 - 8 months.
What are the best ways to grow thicker, healthier eyebrows?
Thin eyebrows can be attributed to genetics or lifestyle factors such as overplucking, stress, and a bad diet. While we can't change our genetics, there are some things we can do to encourage fuller brows.
Be gentle with your brows
Apply minimal pressure to your brow area when using brow pencils and don't overpluck; tweeze in soft lighting only so you don't get too tempted. You can use an eyebrow brush to keep them tidy. Avoid tweezers with broader, flat ends with rubber grips - they tend to cause more traumatic plucking. Better choices are tweezers with an angled end so you can pull in the direction of your hair growth. When the skin is wet after a shower, brow hairs slide right out with minimal effort.
Plucking the eyebrows every couple of weeks should be enough for most people. If you pluck your brow hair every day or two, you're causing scarring, and the hair won't grow back.
Like the hair on your head, healthy brows need a continuous supply of vitamins, minerals, and proteins. To boost your proteins and micronutrients and support natural hair regrowth, you may consider taking hair regrowth supplements and a high-quality collagen powder. As a bonus, you will also see an improvement in your skin and nails!
Use a prescription eyebrow growth treatment
Initially a glaucoma treatment, Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription solution approved for eyelash regrowth. Studies have shown that it can help to regrow your brows as well. Unfortunately, Latisse has been found to have several significant side effects, including a change in the color of the eyes, and is not used anymore.
Use a specially formulated hormone-free eyebrow regrowth serum
A hormone-free peptide-based eyebrow serum is the best option to help regrow healthier and thicker eyebrows. MDhair's Advanced Eyebrow Serum is a specially formulated combination of active peptides, hyaluronic acid, biotin, and plant-based ingredients designed to nourish and strengthen hair follicles for healthier, thicker eyebrows. Suitable for all skin types, the serum is free of sulfates, alcohol, fragrances, and potentially harmful colors, making it a gentle and safe choice for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their eyebrows.
The serum's key ingredients include:
- Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17: Stimulates hair follicles to produce more keratin to build longer, thicker eyebrows
- Pterocarpus Marsupium: Reduces the aging of hair follicles
- Fo-Ti Root Extract: A Chinese medicine that improves scalp health and reduces premature graying
- Pumpkin Seed Oil: A DHT blocker that supports the regrowth of healthier, thicker hair
- Hyaluronic Acid: Helps with dry, brittle, or damaged eyebrows and absorbs 1000x its weight in water to keep hair hydrated, elastic, and strong
- Biotin (Vitamin H): Believed to strengthen hair follicles, improve scalp circulation, and increase the hair density
Users may start to see results within 2 - 4 weeks of consistent use, and full results are typically achieved within 3 months.
Use a hair regrowth serum
Few plant-source compounds have been shown to help regrow hair. An excellent example of such a plant-based serum is the MDhair Restore Serum. It combines potent DHT-blocking agents with more than 20 dermatologist-formulated botanical complexes and plant proteins to stop hair loss and encourage thicker, healthier hair regrowth.
In addition, it includes Fo-Ti Root Extract to improve scalp health and help prevent premature graying.
Use an eyelash regrowth serum
The MDhair Advanced Eyelash Serum was formulated with potent active peptides and apple stem cells to stimulate follicles and extend the hair growth phase. It can be used on the eyebrows as well.
Take oral hair regrowth supplements
Taking a hair regrowth oral supplement that includes iron can be helpful. If you eat red meat fewer than two times or less per week, you may need to take an oral supplement containing iron. The optimal hair care oral supplements contain iron and the correct amounts of Vitamin D, zinc, selenium, and biotin. An excellent example of hair regrowth oral treatment is the MDhair Restore Supplements. These supplements contain the optimal amounts of biotin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), iron, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, manganese, and chromium to support thicker, stronger, healthier hair on the scalp and the eyebrows.
