Do you have thin eyebrows as a result of over-plucking? Are your sparse eyebrows natural or as a result of old age? Then this DIY recipe for women with thin, sparse eyebrows is what you need to restore life to your brow root.
A Simple Explanation to Your Sparse Brows
Hair growing on the human body starts from the hair root in the skin’s dermis (the second layer and the largest layer of the skin). The active cells divide and move upward via the hair follicles to the skin’s surface.
As new cells form in the dermis, it pushes up old cells, which is the black or blond brows you now see above your eyes. Unlike the scalp hair, eyebrows continue growing for 20 to 40 days and then remain dormant for up to that period before breaking. After which another set of hair replaces the empty spot. The cycle continues for life.
However, in the case of plucking, you damage your brows from the inside (that’s from the root). When this happens, it becomes difficult to grow back your brows for a long time, leading to thin, sparse eyebrows.
On the other hand, as we age, the active cells responsible for hair growth receives less protein and nutrients from the blood vessels, leading to thinner and breaking lashes. The rate of growth of the brows also reduces, and they become dry and lifeless.
