Lusting after glossy, thick eyebrows but feeling defeated by your own thin, straggly arches?

If you’ve gone OTT with plucking, are the victim of a bad wax or your natural brows are just pretty damn disappointing, try our tips on how to grow your eyebrows to reach their ‘full’ potential!

 

Use an eyebrow growth serum

Including an eyebrow growth serum in your routine is our numero uno tip to grow your eyebrows as quickly as possible and transform those sparse, straggly hairs into thicker arches. 

 

How does eyebrow serum work?

Eyebrow growth serums contain good-for-brows ingredients like peptides which boost the activity of the hair follicle to stimulate thicker and longer eyebrow hairs, vitamins to strengthen hair, and amino acids and plant oils to help prevent existing brow hair from falling out. 

Containing no harmful ingredients, PONi’s Lash & Brow Growth Serum is a brow boosting formula of oils, peptides, and vitamins to improve the length and thickness of sparse eyebrows.

 

Try the castor oil trick

Google ‘how to make eyebrows grow’ and half the internet swears by using castor oil as a natural way to boost eyebrow growth. 

The other half isn’t so sure. 

There isn’t actually any published scientific evidence linking castor oil and hair growth but if your eyebrow situation is less than lush, it’s worth a shot. 

How can castor oil help grow thick eyebrows? Castor oil is a vegetable oil packed with omega -9 essential fatty acids that are uber nourishing for the skin, anti-inflammatory and can improve circulation, which may help with hair growth. 

Here’s what to do -

Put a few drops of castor oil onto a clean spoolie or cotton tip. Stroke the castor oil into the clean, dry brow area and follow with a brow massage. You’ll want to do this at night because castor oil is thick and painting your eyebrows with it is not a look you want to rock during the day. 

 

Massage your eyebrows to boost circulation

When you’re applying an eyebrow growth serum or trying the castor oil trick, boost your thick eyebrow potential by massaging the serum or oil into your brow area. 

Massage stimulates blood flow which can encourage hair growth. 

Try this massage for a few minutes - press at a spot in the middle of an eyebrow and, without releasing your finger, begin making circular movements, gradually widening the radius. Repeat with the other brow. 

 

Avoid plucking and waxing 

If you want to grow out your eyebrows, you’ll have to go easy on plucking and waxing for at least 6 weeks. When new hair is left alone and not tweezed it will begin to grow closer to the brow line. 

Here’s a little fun brow fact: eyebrows go through a three-stage process of growth. 

Anagen is the active phase of hair growth and for brow hair takes 30 - 45 days. Don't pluck hair that begins to appear, even if it’s underneath the brow. Have patience and make random stragglers growing underneath seem less apparent by using a little concealer to cover them up. 

The second stage - the Catagen phase - is when the hair stops growing and detaches itself from the blood supply; it’s then called ‘club hair’. The final stage is the Telogen phase which lasts over three months - when strands are released and fall out.

 

Eat your way to thicker brows

Wondering how to get thicker eyebrows? Pay attention to what you’re putting on your fork!

Make sure you’re loading your plate up with plenty of healthy fats from plant-based oils, nuts and seeds as well as chowing down whole grains, veggies and fruit packed with fibre.

The results of a balanced diet show up in your face - including healthier-looking brows!  The best vitamins and nutrients for nourishing your hair include - 

Omega 3 fatty acids - salmon, chia seeds, walnuts, and flaxseeds.

Protein - eggs, almonds, and chicken breast.

Iron - green vegetables, for example, spinach, legumes, and red meat.

Zinc - red meat, cashews and surprisingly, dark chocolate contains reasonable amounts of zinc.

Vitamins A, C, D, and E - leafy green vegetables, carrots, and fatty fish such as salmon and sardines.

 

Take a high-quality hair growth supplement 

Hair growth supplements don’t only help nourish thicker, glossier hair on your head - they can speed up hair growth in general, which means your eyebrows will benefit too!

There are plenty of options for hair, skin and nails supplements that contain biotin. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that's part of the vitamin B family and plays a major role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails.

It goes without saying to always check with your doctor first before taking any supplements.

 

A final tip for your mission to thick eyebrows

Be patient! Your brows won’t magically transform overnight but commit to a routine of brow TLC and reaching your full brow potential will definitely be worth the wait.

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On Perfect Brows

READ MORE

Perfect brows can change your entire look and it’s worth going that extra beauty mile to get them right! Behold, our ultimate cheat sheet on how to get perfect brows. 

 

Work with your face shape

 

Brows aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. The perfect brows have to work with your own face shape and we’ve got a few quick pointers on how to get it right!

Round face - Create a high arch following a straight line to the peak of the brow as this will help open up your face. Avoid a rounded / curved eyebrow shape. 

Square face -  Square faces can pull off a curved or more angled brow but steer clear of thin brows and elongate the line to avoid a ‘short’ brow. 

Heart shaped face - A lower arch works with heart shapes. Don’t go too high with the arch or you’ll really lengthen the face. For perfect brows keep the curves of the arch soft.

Oval face - If you have this balanced face shape, lucky you! You can pull off the classic full, softly angled brow beautifully. 

 

Follow the 3 universal brow rules

 

No matter the shape of your face, there are 3 golden rules to follow when defining your perfect eyebrows.

Rule 1 - The arch of your brow - whether it be angular or more curved and soft - should be around two thirds of the way along your brow line, never in the centre.

Rule 2 - Find the right place to start your brow. Lay an eyebrow pencil vertical along your nose - the point where it reaches the bridge of your nose is where the brow should begin.

Rule 3 -  Get the tail right. Place an eyebrow pencil in a line that runs from the outer side of your nostril to the corner of your eye. This is the ideal ending point for your brow. 

 

Brush your brows upwards 

 

Using a clean, dry spoolie your brows upward as it makes them look fuller and gives them more texture. You create a ‘feathered’ appearance - natural looking, fine hair strokes that you can’t achieve if you brush sideways. 

Eyebrows are also easier to fill in afterwards when they’re brushed upwards. 

 

Choose your eyebrow makeup 

 

Powder, creme or pencil? Or a mix ‘n’ match combination? The eyebrow makeup you choose is crucial for nailing a flawless arch. 

Eyebrow pencils are great for beginners and perfect for natural looking brows with softly defined arches that aren’t overly done or sharp-looking. Eyebrow pencil also makes a great base for brow powder to be applied over the top. 

Eyebrow power does a brilliant job at filling in those sparse areas. If your brows are in pretty great shape naturally aside from a few thin spots, you might just need a little eyebrow powder to fill those areas in. Using powder also adds volume to your natural hair and works over the top of eyebrow pencil to add texture. 

Eyebrow creme is a quick way to fill in sparse brows for a natural look. If you’re already rocking a set of thick brows, creme will create a bolder, glam look. Use a brow brush for a precise creme application. 

 

Use a natural looking shade

 

If you've chosen a brow creme or powder, go for a color that is the same shade as your brows or a little darker. 

If a brow pencil is your tool of choice, opt for one shade lighter than your hair for a softer look; unless you’re really fair. In that case, go a little deeper with the shade as slightly darker brows will frame your face enhance your eyes more than a really light brow. 

Still stressed about finding the shade for your perfect brows? Our Brow Magic is a universal brow pencil solves all your colour uncertainties - one colour suits all. Bingo.

 

Start in the centre

 

Perfect eyebrows aren’t one monotone block of colour, so when it comes to hue, aim for a gradient effect. 

Begin applying your brow product at the arch, and build the colour there. Move along to the front and then finish up at the end, where the colour should taper off. Our Brow Duo Powder will help you nail that natural looking gradient.

 

Add a little highlighter

 

If you love a clean, shapely brow use a little highlighter under the brow bone. A soft tone with a subtle shimmer will help define the brow line without looking over the top. Our PONi Unicorn Champagne Highlighter works beautifully when you apply with the angled end of our Pro Brow Brush

 

Set with a clear brow gel

 

Finally, lock those perfect brows in place with a clear brow gel. Gently brush the brow gel spoolie over the hairs to set your arches and keep them looking perfection all day long! 

 

Stand back

 

After you get up close and personal with the mirror to create your brow, take a big step back (at  least a few feet) and survey your brow handiwork. This will give you some perspective on how your brows fit in with your entire face and the rest of your makeup look. 

Finally...thicken your brows naturally 

 

If you weren’t exactly blessed by the brow gods we’ve got good news. Our Lash And Brow Growth Serum boosts brow thickness and darkness naturally to fill in those sparse patches and barely there hairs that drive you crazy.
