Coping with thinning eyebrows can be difficult when it affects your appearance and personal confidence. Here are several tips on managing thinning eyebrows.
An eyebrow pencil is an affordable way to deal with eyebrow thinning, particularly in the short term. Choose a natural color that matches your hair color. There are many guides online for choosing the right eyebrow shape to make your eyebrows appear fuller with a pencil. This is a good solution for eyebrows that are slightly thinning, however the technique can appear artificial when your eyebrows are very thin.
Sometimes all that’s needed to correct the appearance of your eyebrows is to get them professionally shaped. For instance, if the tails of your eyebrows are thinning out, then you may consider shortening them. Sometimes, making the eyebrows narrower can reduce the appearance of thinning eyebrows as well.
One way to minimize the appearance of thin eyebrows is to make them a dynamic color. A vibrant eyebrow color can make your brows seem thicker and more prominent. There are special techniques to follow when coloring eyebrows, including applying a lubricant around the eyebrow so that coloring doesn’t get on your face or scalp.
Try Hair Growth Supplements
If you want to try to grow the hair out, there are several hair growth serums that you can get over the counter. Be careful that you only apply the serum to the areas that you want to grow, and not to your entire eyebrow area. If you’re unsure about applying chemical treatments, there are home remedies to try, including castor oil, olive oil, and fenugreek seeds (http://www.top10homeremedies.com/how-to/how-to-get-thicker-hair-naturally.html).
In order to see results with a hair growth supplement, you will need to apply the supplements on a daily basis and monitor their progress. It may take a few different supplements before you find one that works for you. These hair growth supplements however usually are minimally effective. This is opposed to the use of Latisse or Rogaine, both of which in some patients can cause some thickening of the eyebrows, but need to be used on an ongoing basis.
Getting Eyebrow Transplants
Sometimes the above ideas can work to help thicken eyebrows or make their appearance better. However, for eyebrows that don’t improve with these treatments, or for severely thin or missing eyebrows, transplants are often the best choice. Eyebrow transplant surgery works by taking a small amount of the natural hair on your head and grafting it onto your eyebrows. The result is thicker eyebrows that continue to grow in the long term. Many patients are choosing to get eyebrow transplant surgery because of its short recovery time, naturalness, and effectiveness.
With the help of a trained surgeon, you can get eyebrows back to the look you desire. This is useful not only for eyebrows that are thinning naturally, but also for eyebrow mishaps and over plucking.
