Were you an overzealous plucker as a teen? Leave kids alone long enough with a magazine and they’ll start experimenting to look like their favourite celeb—#thingsweregret. Some of these bold beauty adventures leave behind permanent effects in the form of thinned out brows, or worse—blank spaces. Even if we manage to refrain from waxing, tweezing and threading for a bit, some hair just is not growing back—on its own.
According to eye specialist and esthetician Denise Wilson at Sublime Eyes, a walk-in brow bar in Hollywood, there IS a solution. You can promote hair growth in these otherwise “lost cause” areas by following a fairly simple nightly routine—no pricey products required. According to Wilson, “Apply a mixture of castor oil, vitamin E, and argan oil each night by rubbing it into the brow with a Q-tip or your finger, and keep it on until morning. Pay attention to the areas where you are no longer growing new or thick hair. It’s an old beauty secret we’ve been using at the salon to help clients achieve a fuller brow and even out hair. Clients usually see results in a few months.” A few months is a small price to pay for getting your brows back!
If you’re in Hollywood, stop by the salon; it gives away a free vial of the oil combo to all clients. Otherwise, shop for organic cold-pressed Poppy Austin Argan Oil ($22), Greatfull Skin Vitamin E Oil ($30), and Organic Castor Oil ($19) to DIY a potion at home.
