9 Home Remedies To Make Your Eyebrows Thicker Naturally

Home Remedies To Make Your Eyebrows Thicker

If you are losing hair from your eyebrows or have thin eyebrows, apply castor oil, coconut oil, and olive oil. All of these penetrate the hair and lock in moisture. The latter two also enhance blood circulation and provide vitamin E, essential for hair growth. Onion juice can have significant effect, especially if you have alopecia areata. You could even apply ground fenugreek seed or aloe vera gel.

Did you know that besides protecting your eyes from sweat and moisture, your eyebrows make it easier for people to recognize you? In one interesting study, participants had more difficulty recognizing celebrities from morphed images when the celebs had no eyebrows than when they had no eyes. That explains how important your eyebrows are to your appearance and why it’s a cause of concern when you start losing eyebrow hair.

Excessive loss of eyebrow hair can indicate health conditions like hypothyroidism or madarosis. It can also indicate you are or were under stress or have protein and vitamin deficiency. An autoimmune condition called alopecia areata can also be responsible for the loss of eyebrow hair. In all these cases, you would also see a loss of scalp hair. It’s wise to visit a doctor to identify the underlying health condition, but meanwhile, you could also try these natural remedies for thicker eyebrows.

1. Castor Oil

While there is no clinical study to back its effects, castor oil is traditionally considered one of the most effective remedies to grow your eyebrows thicker and faster. It nourishes the hair follicles and promotes hair growth.

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has nutrients like vitamin E and iron that can promote thick and healthy hair growth. Moreover, coconut oil, loaded with the fatty acid called lauric acid, can easily penetrate the hair and prevent any protein loss. As you well know, protein is the foundation of good hair. And if you apply coconut oil on your hair, then you should apply it on your eyebrows, too. You can also add a bit of ashwagandha root powder with the coconut oil to make the hair root stronger.

3. Olive Oil

You can also use olive oil to thicken your eyebrows. Like coconut oil, olive oil has a fatty acid called oleic acid, which can penetrate the eyebrow hair root and lock in moisture. It is also rich in vitamin E, which helps promote hair growth by stimulating the growth of capillaries. When the capillaries are healthy, blood circulation is enhanced. This is good for promoting healthy and strong hair growth.

4. Onion Juice

Not only are they a part of a healthy diet, onions are also great for hair growth. Onions are rich in antioxidant flavonols and sulfur – an essential mineral in hair. In a study on patients with alopecia areata, onion juice was applied to the scalp and massaged into areas where hair growth was minimal. After following this method twice daily for 4 to 6 weeks, 86.9% of the participants experienced new hair growth. If alopecia areata is the reason behind your sparse eyebrow hair, give yourself an onion therapy.

5. Egg Yolk

Eggs are rich in protein and the hair needs proteins for its growth. While the egg yolk does not have as much protein as the egg white, it has a considerable amount of vitamin D, which is also essential for hair health. Egg yolk also contains some sulfur.

This is probably the simplest remedy. Milk contains proteins and other nutrients that can help with healthy hair growth.

8. Aloe Vera

9. Lemon

Lemons can also help with good eyebrow growth because of their rich vitamin C content.

Along with these natural remedies, it is important to get a balance of the right vitamins and minerals that are generally important for hair growth. Eating healthy is also an important aspect for hair growth. Eat foods rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E, iron, omega-3 fats, and proteins.

If you develop an allergic reaction to any of the remedies mentioned, do not continue the treatment. If the reaction gets worse, consult your doctor immediately. It is always good to do a patch test first before you go ahead with the treatment.
