My brows are definitely still not what I consider perfect, but I’m getting pretty close. Here’s how I grew them back after years of being tortured by eyebrow trends.
Less – now, no – more when it comes to brow makeup
I began my eyebrow regrowth journey shortly after New York City salons started opening in the spring of 2020, and that’s when I met brow artist Azi Sacks, who launched some immediate game-changing suggestions. (She’s, by the way, the first brow artist I trust to entrust my sacred brows.) First, I shouldn’t pluck, wax, shave, shave, or wax around. his eyebrows. Those are the words you’d expect to hear from an eyebrow trimmer to pay rent, but she was greedy when she said I couldn’t grow my eyebrows if I was constantly pestered by my hairs. in the wrong place. .
She also recommends avoiding any heavy brow gels that dry out your brows. I hate to hear that because those are my favorite brow gels, but she had a point. As cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson once noted Seductive, many gels of that nature contain alcohol as a main ingredient. “That in itself can cause dryness,” he explains. And, as Sacks previously told me, “when brows get too dry, it breaks.” Sacks also recommends staying away from glues, waxes, and eyebrow pencils; According to her and Robinson, the pull of their waxy texture can pull brow hairs and sometimes pull them out completely.
It’s been a huge sacrifice to give up most of the brow products I’ve used religiously for so long, but I see results right away when I put them away in my unused drawer. . Over time, more hairs grew and those hairs were also thicker than I expected.
So these products maybe you use when you are following a strict growth regimen? A lot of things! Two of Sacks’s, and thus my personal favorites, are the Kosas Air Brow and the MAC Eye Shadow in Charcoal Brown, applied with light strokes. Now that I’m close to achieving the full look I want, I rarely use any pigment in my brows – most of the time, I just brush a little Vaseline through them to combine them. into place without drying them out.
Rosemary oil (like, a lot) is your friend
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but rosemary oil has been clinically proven to support new hair growth at a similar rate to minoxidil (i.e. Rogaine or Nioxin). “It acts as an antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and most importantly, a microcirculation booster,” cosmetic chemist Ginger King previously explained. Seductive. “Antioxidants are essential for all hair care to maintain integrity; microcirculation will help re-energize the scalp for better growth.”
