Don’t apply rich creams on your brows
Think about it – would you feel apply your skincare products on your hair? Yuck, right? Similarly, applying certain products such as thick moisturisers as well as pore-clogging makeup can block the follicles on your brows and stunt hair growth. To nourish the skin under the brows, opt for a brow serum or conditioner, but avoid your usual creams for sure.
2. Stop over-tweezing
Confession: I have a secret obsession with tweezers and bring them out as soon as I see a hair out of place. But I’ve learned the hard way that you need to be super careful when you are getting too close to the border of your brow shape. If you aren’t careful, you run the risk of damaging the hair follicle, which means that your hair won’t ever grow back. Always tweeze your brows after a warm shower, as this is when the pores are open the hair is softer.
3. Avoid bad quality brow makeup
For people with really thin and sparse brows, filling in brows every day is an absolute necessity. Using brow products that are not pigmented enough leads to a lot of pressing and tugging to get the desired results. Instead use light brow powders with feather-like brush strokes to avoid damage.
4. Don’t use too much brow gel
If you have thick, unruly brows, then we are sure you’re in the habit of taming them using brow gel. This helps to lock your brows in place and keep them looking perfect all day long. But since brow gels stiffen your brows, they also make them brittle and more prone to breakage. Minimise the use of brow gels in order to prevent your brow hairs from falling out in the long run.
5. Watch your diet
If you suddenly notice your eyebrow hair falling out, then consider making some changes in your diet. Avoid eating sugary foods as that can lead to a rise in your blood sugar levels and eventual hair loss. Also, consume plenty of vegetables and fruits to strengthen your follicles.
