How to Grow Thicker Eyebrows with Coconut Oil
Many people who pluck their eyebrows regularly to get thin lines eventually find that the hair no longer grows back. If waxed or plucked frequently, the eyebrow hair stops growing, creating unsightly bald patches or even ending up with a one-hair line for an eyebrow. On the other hand, some people simply have naturally thin or sparse eyebrows.
If you want Cara Delevingne eyebrows but you don't want to make your eyebrows look thicker with a brow liner or similar, it's time to start growing them back naturally. At oneHOWTO we will show you how to grow thicker eyebrows with coconut oil, an all-natural but safe trick that will help your brows become as stunning as they can be.
How does coconut oil promote hair growth?
Among the many benefits of coconut oil, one of its properties is that it promotes hair growth. But how?
Coconut oil is rich in vitamins E and K as well as in iron, which make weak hair grow stronger and fuller. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that prevents harmful free radicals from developing in organic tissues and protects fatty acids and the cells from oxidation. It repairs damaged cells and tissue, and enhances eye and neuron health. Vitamin K is useful to synthesize the proteins that bind calcium to our bones and regulate blood coagulation.
As you know, hair is a chain of proteins bound together, that is, a protein filament. Coconut oil is also rich in fatty acids, which protect the binding of proteins and thus strengthen the structure of the hair. Besides being antioxidant, using coconut oil prevents the development of bacteria and fungi, further protecting the quality of the hair.
These nutritional properties will stimulate your the hair follicles of your eyebrows and help them remain moisturized as they grow. Coconut oil is liquid enough to act within the hair shaft, hydrating and nourishing it deeply and sealing in the moisture.
If you want to grow thicker eyebrows with coconut oil and get the most of its benefits, we advise you to choose cold-pressed or organic coconut oil, as they will give much better results. However, you can also make homemade coconut oil if you prefer. You should note that coconut oil may also cause your eyebrows to grow darker.
Prep your face to use coconut oil:
Before you apply the coconut oil, make sure you cleanse your face properly so it's free of impurities, dirt and makeup and leaving it completely clean. It's best to do this after you have had a shower.
Although it seems basic, too many people wash their faces improperly and do not get rid of debris and built-up dead skin. Take a look at our articles on how to wash your face properly every day, how to do so if your are prone to acne and how to exfoliate your face.
Pat your face dry with a towel. Drying it by rubbing a towel causes irritation, dark spots through light abrasion and long-term damage.
How to use coconut oil to grow thicker eyebrows:
The first step to apply coconut oil for eyebrow hair growth is to get hold of a Q-tip or cotton bud and dab it in your coconut oil pot lightly. Comb it into your eyelashes, making sure you follow the direction of the hair growth, that is, from the root of the hair outwards.
When you use coconut oil for hair growth, both on your head and on your eyebrows, it's recommended to apply it with gentle pressure, massaging the area. This enhances blood and nutrient circulation.
Add some more coconut oil at the top and bottom of your current brow line, which will activate the hair follicles and help you grow thicker eyebrows. Make sure you follow your natural eyebrow shape to make sure the hairs keep growing in this shape.
Once you're done, let the coconut oil stand so that your skin can absorb it properly. Apply the coconut oil at night and rinse your face in the morning with lukewarm water. It's very important to rinse your eyebrows thoroughly, because the oil may clog the follicles and actually stop the hair from growing. Again, dry your face by patting and not by rubbing.
How often should you use coconut oil to grow thicker eyebrows?
Repeat the application twice a day to notice the effects. Although it may be a slow process and it will take several weeks to notice changes in the thickness of your eyebrows, with time you'll see how more hair grow in the area in two months' time.
You can also use this trick to boost eyelash growth - just make sure none of the oil goes into your eyes. It should be applied as close to the root of the hair as possible, so be careful!
