Can you grow back over-plucked eyebrows?
The Daily Telegraph
Krissy Turner talks to three experts about how to regain thicker, fuller brows.
Your eyebrows frame your features, and when they are perfectly suited to your face you look healthier and well-groomed. But what about those of us who just couldn’t help over-plucking into a very Nineties thin line? Will we ever get back that treasured Lily Collins-esque thickness and full arch without the need to use pencils and shadows?
We asked the experts.
“Ensuring that your diet includes iron, vitamins C, D, B6 and Keratin (it is a protein: so eggs, fish, dairy) is very sensible, as these aid the health of the hair,” says Dr hair transplant surgeon at The Private Clinic of Harley Street.
“There are certain supplements you can take, such as iodine (required for the production of the thyroid hormone), which contribute to healthy hair growth. While our diet can have a big impact, if permanent damage has been done to the follicles, the hair will not grow back. In cases where hair growth seems to be progressing slowly, a scalp solution contaning 2% of the active ingredient Minoxidil can, in certain cases, help to boost the growth of the eyebrow hairs by supplying nutrients to the area, as it increases the blood supply.” *
