. Castor Oil
Castor oil is rich in fatty acids, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants that nourish hair follicles. Take a few drops of this oil and massage your eyebrows with your fingertips, and leave for thirty minutes. Using makeup remover, remove the grease and wash your face with lukewarm water. This will promote denser hair growth. Repeat this remedy daily to get fast results.
NOTE: Before treating your eyebrows with castor oil, perform a patch test to find out if your skin is allergic to it.
. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has lauric acid which acts as an antimicrobial agent in preventing infection of the hair follicle. It also stimulates hair to grow faster. Take a cotton swab and dab it in the oil and apply a layer on your eyebrows. Keep it on for the entire night and wash it off in the morning. You can use this remedy on a daily basis to get the best results.
. Olive Oil
Olive oil is rich in vitamin A, a compound that nourishes hair strands and also fosters the production of sebum, the body’s natural oil that helps in hair growth. Take a few drops of this oil and massage it on your eyebrows for a while. Let the hair absorb the oil and after a couple of hours wash it off with lukewarm water.
NOTE: Use extra virgin oil as it’s unrefined and free of chemicals.
. Onion Juice
Onion contains selenium, minerals, sulphur and vitamins. Sulphur aids in the production of collagen tissues which is important for eyebrow growth. For this remedy you will need a small onion, a tablespoon of lemon juice, two to three tablespoons of water and a cotton ball. Chop the onion and blend it in a mixer to form a paste, apply the lather on your eyebrows and keep it for an hour. Wipe it off with a cotton ball soaked in lemon juice. For optimal results, use this remedy on alternate days.
NOTE: Lemon juice is used to remove the strong smell of onion.
. Egg Yolk
Egg yolks are rich in biotin which helps in hair growth. Take an egg and separate the yolk from the white. Beat the egg yolk until it forms a thick consistency and apply this on your eyebrows with a brush. Let it stay for twenty minutes and then rinse it with warm water. You can use this remedy two to three times a week.
NOTE: Egg yolks are not good for your skin as it can clog pores and lead to acne.
