If you’re longing for your brows of yesteryear, mind these tips.

First off, some people naturally have sparse brows, and there’s no shame in that. For those who’ve seen the gradual decline of thickness, here’s how you can encourage growth.

STOP WAXING & TWEEZING AND THREADING: Ouch! That hurt like ripping off a bandaid, didn’t it? Repeated removal of the hair follicle can lead to permanent damage. If you’ve been consistently getting your brows done through one of these techniques and noticed that each year it thins a little more each year, you may be adding fuel to the fire. Consider switching to a razor job for little while to let your brows attempt to grow in a bit, and save the hair that’s left.

TRY JAMAICAN BLACK CASTOR OIL: If you’re looking to encourage your brows to grow, try using Jamaican Black Castor oil on your brows every night for at least two months. The science behind’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil’s alleged growth boost is the fact that it’s antibacterial, anti fungal, and works well against follliculitus, dandruff and inflammatory scalp infections that typically hinder growth. It’s rich in ricinoleic acid, which helps increase circulation to the scalp and other areas where hair grows. It can also help balance the pH level of that area of skin, which can assist in repairing damage.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS BROW ENHANCING SERUM: For those who aren’t interested in going the natural route, this easy-to-use serum boasts biotin, peptides, castor oil and a host of growth-boosting plant extracts. It can be applied in the morning and eve, and wears easily under makeup.
