What You Need To Do

  • Cut a small wedge of a fresh lemon and use it directly to apply on the eyebrows.
  • Make sure you massage the juice in circular motions to allow adequate blood circulation in that area. Proper blood circulation ensures healthy eyebrow growth.
  • Allow the lemon juice to seep into your pores for around 20 minutes. The lemon juice will seep into the hair follicles and strengthen them. Also, it clears all the microbial growth and dirt accumulated in the hair follicles.
  • Wash it away with lukewarm water and use a mild soap, if required.
  • Make sure there are no bruises in the eyebrow area because the acid in lemon juice might irritate the skin.

Lemon juice is one of the most beneficial ingredients to keep hair problems at bay. It is full of vitamin C, a compound called limonene, and folic acid, all of which help in nourishing, strengthening, and promoting healthy hair growth. An added benefit is that lemon juice cures fungal infections. It is especially helpful for people who are suffering from dandruff.

Here are some other kitchen ingredients that can help you get thick, nice eyebrows. Take a peek!

1. Onion Juice

Onion juice, another simple ingredient that is invariably available in every house, looks rather like a smelly pungent thing everyone wants to avoid. However, it is an excellent source of sulfur. Wondering what sulfur has got to do with your eyebrows? Okay, that is a long story. Biotin is one of the vitamins in our bodies that requires sulfur for its synthesis. This biotin, in turn, helps in producing sufficient amounts of keratin – the building blocks of your hair. Deficiency of sulfur, according to Mayo Clinic, apart from other problems, also cause hair loss.

What You Need To Do
  • Puree a small onion.
  • Extract the juice from it.
  • Apply generously all over your eyebrows and massage well.
  • Allow it to work on the area for about a quarter of an hour.
  • Wash with lukewarm water and a mild soap that consists of natural fragrance to avoid smelling like an onion for the rest of the day.

2. Egg Yolk

Another clumsy-to-deal-with ingredient that proves to be your hair’s best friend is egg yolk. Again, eggs are great sources of protein that form the very basis of hair.

What You Need To Do
  • Separate the white from the yolk.
  • Whisk the yolk until you bring it to a batter-like consistency.
  • Use cotton balls or swabs to apply it on the eyebrows if you don’t want to make your hands dirty.
  • You could alternatively add a few drops of avocado oil or olive oil to moisturize your eyebrows.
  • After allowing the mixture to sit on your eyebrows for 15-20 minutes, wash it away with some cold water.
  • Apply this twice a week to see considerable changes.

3. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera is another super drug-like ingredient that is a must-have skin and hair care natural product. It does a million things for you. Aloe vera has a long history of medicinal uses. The succulent leaves are full of water and other beneficial components that treat minor bruises and burns and help in cosmetic enhancement.

What You Need To Do

  • Carefully extract the juice from the leaves by cutting off the serrated edges with a sharp knife.
  • Add sesame seed oil or coconut oil to boost the moisture quotient of the mixture.
  • Massage the mixture on the eyebrows. Doing this soothes the skin if there is any irritation or burning sensation post a tweezing or plucking session.
  • Rinse off the mixture after 15-20 minutes and pat dry the area.
  • This nourishing gel can be stored in the refrigerator and used for several weeks. Also, you could add vitamin C to it to increase the shelf life of the mixture. Applying this every day for a few weeks will repair the damaged skin, nourish the pores, and elevate the rate of your eyebrow growth.

When it comes to hair and skin, grandma’s tip of prevention being better than cure is something that you need to remember. Nonetheless, Mother Nature is laden with elements all around you to keep your body as healthy and graceful as you want it to be. So, when life gives you lemons, make thick eyebrows out of them!
