Eyebrows are the frame not only for the eye, but for our entire face. If you have naturally thin and light hair, and your face seems to be devoid of expression, you can quickly and easily in the comfort of your home darken eyebrows yourself and enjoy a changed look
The most popular way to darken your eyebrows is to apply henna. It can be done in a beauty salon, however, nothing stands in the way of doing it yourself at home.
Henna is a natural dye obtained from the leaves of lavender shoots. It has been used in cosmetics for centuries by women living in the Middle and Far East and in Africa. Henna is usually used for hair care and body decoration. All over the world henna is used to darken eyebrows, eyelashes and emphasize hair color
In stores you can buy henna in powder or in cream. These products should be mixed with 3% hydrogen peroxide before application. In case of both forms, it is crucial to choose the right shade of the product
Henna should not be applied if you suffer from inflammatory and allergic skin conditions, skin lesions around eyebrows, barley, conjunctivitis. Henna also can not be applied on freshly depilated eyebrows and in lenses
Applying henna leaves the color on your eyebrows for up to about 3 weeks.
If you are afraid to apply henna on your eyebrows yourself, you can use black tea to darken the hairs. Brew 2 tea bags by pouring boiling water halfway into the mug. After it cools down, soak 2 cotton balls in the liquid and keep it on your eyebrows for about 10 minutes
Mix a teaspoon of ground coffee with a teaspoon of coconut oil or petroleum jelly. Apply the concoction on your eyebrows using a brush. After 20 minutes, wipe off with water and a cotton ball or simply wash your face
Mix a tablespoon of natural cocoa with a tablespoon of coconut oil and a little honey. Apply the combined ingredients to your eyebrows and wash off after 10 minutes with a dampened cotton ball.
Sage is known in cosmetics for its nourishing properties – it improves blood circulation, nourishes the scalp and accelerates hair growth. With its help you can also darken eyebrows. Just brew a sachet of sage leaves and wait until the infusion takes on color and cools down. Soak cotton balls and cotton balls in the herbs and apply it on your eyebrows for 10 minutes. After this time, rinse your eyebrows with lukewarm water
The method with castor oil requires more regularity. Regular application of the cosmetic on the eyebrows for at least 3 weeks will visibly darken and thicken the eyebrows
