Fashion and trends keep changing every season and women often bow to its dictates. The shape of your nails, the style of hair and even the thickness of eyebrows is according to what is prevalent. Sometimes in your zeal to fit in with the crowd, you may over-pluck your eyebrows. Later you may realise that it doesn’t suit you or you have overdone it, leaving very little hair.
There is no fool proof way to rectify this save waiting for the hair to grow again. It will take a couple of weeks. Some companies manufacturing beauty products offer quick fix solutions in the form of creams and lotions which guarantee quick hair growth. This is mainly clever marketing to make you buy products full of chemicals and fill the company’s coffers. The majority of these formulations do not work.
While waiting for your eyebrows to re-grow, avoid the temptation to pluck any straggling hairs. If you pluck one hair, then you are liable to pluck a few more at another time. This will be an exercise in futility. Wait patiently for the entire eyebrow to grow.
In the mean time keep your face clean by washing it in the morning and before going to bed. This will keep at bay any bacteria that may clog hair follicles. Use a good moisturiser as well. Eat a well balanced diet which is rich in protein to promote hair growth. This is important if your hair is growing at a slow rate.
To tide over the time, you can take the help of eyebrow pencil. Use it to fill in any hairless patches. Eyebrow pencils are easily available and come in different shades. Start with a color that is a shade lighter than your natural shade. Make small feathery strokes to simulate hair. You can practice drawing them on your wrist.
However, if you have very little hair left in your eyebrows, you will need a pencil that is closest to your natural hair shade. Draw small light strokes with a darker pencil at first and once you have got the shape you want, fill in with the lighter coloured pencil. You should be gentle especially near the edges or the eyebrows will look artificial and painted.
Now a product is available which can help you to draw a proper shaped eyebrow. It is a plastic or a silicon sheet with an eyebrow cut out. Place it on your eyebrow and fill in the shape with an eyebrow pencil. You can use it daily so that they look the same every day. Once your eyebrows grow back, you can use it to shape them. Place this sheet on your eyebrow and use powder to fill it in then remove the hair that is outside the powdered shape and you will have well shaped eyebrows.
