5 Brow Hacks For Thicker & Fuller Brows
It’s inevitable that your eyebrows frame your face, so if you have relatively sparse brows, you can feel pretty insecure about going outside and meeting people.
Fuller arches can take years off your face, and make you look much edgier and fiercer than you actually are. If you’re lucky, you don’t even need to draw on your eyebrows; hence saving time on makeup.
We can’t all afford microblading and brow-tinting. Plus, it’s quite a commitment. If you made the mistake of tweezing too much of your eyebrows off in the 90s, here are some hacks to help you bounce back from it!
1. Castor oil
Fun fact – our writer tried this on her eyebrows and she finally had to shave them for the first time ever. Needless to say, her eyebrows got pretty bushy after three weeks of consistent application every day. She had to go around with her bushy, ungroomed eyebrows for weeks before she found a way to shave it off. Castor oil encourages the production of keratin and ensures that each strand of brow hair grows straight and strong. The downside is, you may find your eyebrows bushier than you want it.
2. Eyebrow growth serum
A killer eyebrow growth serum will certainly speed up your eyebrow thickening process. Eyebrow growth serum has ingredients that work to nourish the hair on your brows first, even if they’re sparse. Most serums have hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, amino acids to condition and promote brow hair growth.
The cheapest option out there, and it works pretty well. Apply Vaseline on your eyebrows before bed and leave it overnight. Rinse off in the morning. Repeat every night until you’ve achieved the eyebrows you desire. Vaseline locks moisture into your eyebrow hairs, which encourages brow growth. However, this method is not recommended for those with acne-prone skin as it can cause you to break out.

4. Aloe vera gel
Massage aloe vera gel (either packaged or straight from the plant) onto your eyebrows until it gets absorbed into your skin, and coats every brow hair. Aloe vera has a compound called aloenin that encourages hair growth. This method can be done several times a day if you’re gonna have a self-care day at home. Make a concoction by mixing in a drop or two of rosemary oil to promote blood circulation around your eyebrows. Pretty neat, huh?
5. Temporary fix: mascara or brow gel
Waiting for your brows to grow can be such a pain, so here’s a quick fix! You can use brow mascara or even regular mascara to make your brows appear thicker. For regular mascara, lightly swipe the product onto your eyebrows until you’ve achieved your desired look. Clean it up with a spoolie if necessary, and enjoy your temporary, naturally thick eyebrows. Meanwhile, clear brow gel will give your eyebrows a ticker, just-came-out-of-the-shower look. Needs!
