Excessive plucking, tweezing or waxing may leave your eyebrows too thin, too short, out of shape or with ingrown hair. Occasionally, oil produced by the skin, dirt, make-up and dead skin cells can clog the pores and prevent the hair from growing, forming “black dots”.
In this case, MinShu’s recommends the following:
Stop tweezing, plucking and waxing your eyebrows
Frequently Use apricot scrub or similar scrub around the eyebrows to open up clogged pores. This would allow the natural hair re-growth to occur
After cleansing the skin around the eyebrows with a facial scrub, dip a q-tip in castor oil (available at local pharmacies) or hair oil (available at Indian grocery stores or bazaars) and apply the oil on and around the eyebrows. Castor oil has been used in South Asian hair oils and treatments for centuries as an ingredient that promotes hair growth. South Asian hair oils contain many natural ingredients that lubricate the skin and provide nutrients for hair growth. Cleansing with facial scrub and application of oil on and around the eyebrows would promote hair growth, possibly thickening and darkening the eyebrows.
Once the natural growth occurs, visit MinShu’s to get the eyebrows re-shaped and re-defined. Continue to visit MinShu’s every 2 to 3 weeks for eyebrow maintenance thereafter.
