How To Grow Your Eyebrows With Olive Oil
Olive oil is a God-sent ingredient for your beauty because it contains vitamins A and E, which will increase the growth of your hair. Vitamin E nourishes each hair strand, while vitamin A promotes the production of natural body oil, which helps hair development.
How to: apply a drop of olive oil on the tip of the finger and then gently massage the eyebrows, leaving it for a couple of hours and then rinsing with a face cleanser. This step can be part of your beauty routine at least once a day to see its effects in a matter of a few weeks. Need more intensity for your eyebrows? You can always opt for a brow tint for more colour and drama at the end of your treatment.
Egg Yolks For Healthy Eyebrows And Eyelashes

Hair is made of a protein known as keratin, and eggs are an excellent source of proteins. Moreover, egg yolks are also a good source of biotin, which stimulate the growth of your eyebrows and eyelashes. As you can spot in many haircare products for hair loss and hair growth, keratin and biotin are two natural allies.

How to: separate the egg yolk from its white, the beat the yolk until the consistency is uniform. Next, apply the mixture to your eyebrows with a brush and, for the eyelashes, a clean lash wand. Leave it for 20 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water. This homemade recipe can give you a faster growth rate if you use it twice a week. Be careful: use it in moderation because egg yolks can clog your pores and cause acne.

Milk has well-known benefits for your skin and hair. Milk is used in many dermatological products because it contains casein and serum, two vital proteins that stimulate the development of healthy hair.

I generally do not like the idea of drastically changing my appearance but when a friend, Kim, trainee Microblading therapist, asked me to be a model for her Microblading course I hesitantly said yes. Now I was not really blessed with full eyebrows but loved them none the less!! So although hesitant I agreed to undergo the treatment and was wonderfully surprised at the outcome. Because I now have eyebrows that you can actually see. So I am happy!!
So what is Microblading
Microblading is different from the permanent cosmetic tattoo as it is a more natural option that offers a semi-permanent result. The treatment is done with a pen-like tool that has 11 tiny needles at the tip. The therapist starts the treatment by numbing the skin with a numbing cream and once the skin is numbed she applies cosmetic -grade eyebrow dye. She then sweeps the dye pigment with her tool onto the brow area. The whole procedure takes two hours and you do feel a slight sting but no real pain.
After the first treatment you will have to wait for a period of four weeks to apply the second treatment. Now this is just to fill in any gaps and add a second color for dimension.
After the first treatment, your brows appear very dark and it is a bit of a shock if you are not used to full dark brows. After a couple of days of treating it with Vaseline, there is a slight scabbing but once healed you will see a definite but subtle difference.
So yes, I am defiantly loving my new eyebrows!!
The nice part is, that it is a low maintenance treatment, as after healing you can treat them just as your normal brows and no special care is needed other than staying out of the sun as this will fade the brows quicker. Therapist do recommend that you go back after one or two years for a touch up treatment.
