It’s one thing spending time and money getting the perfect eyebrows, but it’s a whole other ordeal keeping your eyebrows in place. Just like the hair on your head (and plenty of other places too) eyebrows are unruly, and a hair out-of-place can seriously crimp your style.
There are plenty of gels and waxes on the market, but do they really keep your eyebrows in place?
I’ve never had a great experience with waxes and gels. I either wind up waxing my brows out-of-place or with flakey gel eyebrows. So I’ve taken a new approach to brows and you should too.
Use products that condition hairs AND keep your eyebrows in place.
It makes a lot of sense. When you condition hair, it behaves. We never condition or eyebrows, so naturally they’re unruly.
Instead of swiping on some clear mascara, try a dab of Weleda Skin Food (One of the only moisturizers you need) to keep stray hairs in line.
Skin Food will soften hair, add just a smidgen of shine, and is slightly sticky, so hair won’t budge. It’s not greasy enough to make your face feel unclean, but has just enough grip to make brows look magnificent.
If you’re looking to keep your eyebrows in place AND increase their growth, you need this coveted DIY brow growth serum.
Eyebrow Growth Serum
1 Part Vitamin E Oil
1 Part Castor Oil
1 Part Argan Oil
Mix equal portions of these oils, and apply over brows at bedtime. For centuries, castor oil has been used as remedy for hair growth, while Vitamin E and Argan condition hair, and increase strength. The three oils combined, over time can grow back even the most over-tweezed brow. And, if you apply the elixir in the morning, the oils are thick and sticky enough to hold brows in place all day. Three little ingredients that grow your brows and keep them on point!
The last brow stabilizer is the most classic, and one you’ve already got in your medicine cabinet.
Vaseline conditions hair, and smooths it into place. I’ve got the rosy lips variety, because I love to use it as a lip and cheek tint, and the color doesn’t show on brows.
With a simple swipe of your finger, your eyebrows will have never looked better.
peace. love. and bobby pins.
