Help! I went a little tweezer-crazy and plucked too much! What is the best way for me to grow in my eyebrows?
The best way to grow in your brows is to not tweeze every time you see a stray hair. Brow tweezing should be done every two weeks, even if the tweezer is right there. If you've over-tweezed, put castor oil on your brows as that helps to grow hair. While you're waiting for the hair to grow back, you can color in your brows by drawing around them and filling them in with brow wax or an eye shadow a shade or two lighter than your brow hair.
Brow-Friendly Tweezer Tips
1) You should always have brows where your eyes start. Brows that are too far apart are dangerous, since eyebrow hairs automatically recede as we grow older.
2) Being tweezer-happy is a common problem. Before tweezing, you should always draw yourself an outline. The outline should be two hairlines away from the actual brows. That way you'll never go overboard.
3) If you do go overboard: Do not make them any thinner. Just color them in like mentioned above and apply castor oil on the area until they grow back.
