Thicker brows give guys a rougher, more masculine look. And unlike men’s hairstyles that require specific cuts or lengths, thicker brows are very easy to achieve with very little effort. Here are a few tips on how to get thicker eyebrows for men.
Avoid Hair Waxing, Plucking, and Tweezing
Avoid any type of hair removal if you want to grow thicker eyebrows. Men usually are not the plucking or tweezing type, so this should not be a problem. Let your brows grow as long as possible even if you see stray hairs that make your brows look out of shape. Experts recommend waiting at least a month before plucking or tweezing. If you want thicker eyebrows but do not want your brows to look scraggly and unkempt, cut the stray hairs instead to give your brows shape without removing the roots. This way, your hair keeps growing but you get well-kept brows.
Massage Your Brows using Natural Remedies
Put a remedy into your finger, apply it to eyebrows, then massage the brows for about 5 minutes. Leave it until an hour, then wash it using warm or plain water. Do this everyday and normally you will see positive results within 3 months. Some recommended natural remedies are: castor oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera. Don’t forget to drink a lot of water and eat food with essential nutrients such as vitamin, mineral, and protein.
If you suffer from hair loss on your brows or if there are noticeable patches on your brows, you can use eyebrow pencil to cover the patches as you allow your brow hairs to grow back again. This is a cheap and instant remedy that can help anyone suffering from unexpected hair loss.
Hair Growth Products and Surgery
If you really want thicker brows but are naturally predisposed to very little hair growth, you can try eyebrow enhancing serums. Hair growth solutions such as Rogaine that are typically used to hair growth on the scalp may also produce the same results on the eyebrows. Surgery is not recommended for young men with normal eyebrows. It is a last resort for those who cannot achieve thicker brows the natural way. Hair transplants can be done on the brows to restore hair growth but they can be costly. The hair follicles can be taken from the back of the head, then placed one by one in a pattern that gives a normal and natural look. Normally these hairs will need to be trimmed on a regular basis. Use these options only when natural methods and topical solutions don’t work.
