If you want then to grow thicker brows, avoid trimming or shaving off as this might interfere with the growth pattern or your brows might just not grow back.

In case you want to color your brows there are many products and tutorials for temporarily changing your brow color without bleaching or using permanent colour. It’s important not to expose your eyebrows to harsh conditions such as chemical treatment or color bleach in order to avoid damage

We look at some simple ways to grow thicker eyebrows.

3.Olive oil

Rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin E, olive oil helps boost hair growth. Olive oil is also readily available in our kitchens or food stores. Just massage small quantities on your eyebrows before going to bed every night and wait for the results.

4.Onion juice

Onion juice has been used over centuries to treat hair loss and increase hair growth and volume. Just blend an onion and strain the juice. Massage it on your eyebrows and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off. Onions are full of nutrients such as sulfur that facilitate hair growth.

5.Egg yolk protein

Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Apply the yolk on your eye brows and massage for a couple of minutes and let it sit. If you can, wait for it to dry up before washing it off. Egg yolks are a great source of protein which helps boost hair growth.

6.Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera on hair is the oldest trick in the book. You can use store-bought aloe vera gel or use raw aloe vera. Just scrape out the gel and massage it into your eye brows. Aloe vera is rich in vitamins which help in hair growth and ensuring that your eye brows are thick and healthy.


Milk is rich in proteins which are good for hair growth. It contains casein and whey which are types of protein that boost hair growth.

Soak a cotton ball into milk and rub it gently on your eyebrows. Do this every day and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing.

8.Petroleum jelly

Like any other body part or hair, your eye brows need oil to keep them moisturized. Well, no one wants to walk around with shiny eyebrows because of the petroleum jelly and that is why you only apply it every night before bedtime.
