When it comes to regrowing sparse brows, the struggle is real. For those who have overplucked their eyebrows or who grew up in the ’90s when thin eyebrows were all the rage, you know just how difficult it can be to get your brows back to being lush and full again. Between crazy expensive treatments like eyebrow transplants (yes, people are paying upwards of $5,000 for brow hair restoration!) and serums that take way too long to work and only grow in a few spare hairs, getting thick, healthy looking eyebrows again can seem like too much money and effort.
While resorting to filling in your brows with powder or a pencil may seem like your best option, we have an awesome, inexpensive little trick to share with you, and it’s called women’s 5% Rogaine foam. Yes, Rogaine is typically used to regrow hair on your head, but it’s also a best kept secret for regrowing your eyebrows! While this is an off-label use that you should definitely practice with caution and keep FAR away from your eyes and eyelashes, we can attest that it does work great to regrow eyebrows. Again, full disclaimer, try this at your own risk, never use Rogaine on your eyelashes and always practice caution when applying it to your eyebrows.
A few years back we heard through the grapevine that some women were using men’s 5% Rogaine to regrow their eyebrows, but we never tried it. With this in mind, we gave our mom a bottle of 5% Women’s Rogaine foam and told her that it may work to regrow her thinning eyebrows. She tried it for about 2 weeks, and guess what, her eyebrows have grown tremendously! So, we decided to give it a try and after just a few uses, our brows grew in thicker as well.
Upon further research, it seems this works for a lot of women who are trying to get thicker brows. So, if you have sparse brows or just want to get your brows thicker, you may want to give 5% Women’s Rogaine foam a shot. But, be sure it’s the 5% foam version, as many women say the lower percentage version does not work to grow brows. Also, stick to the foam to avoid it dripping in your eyes.
Best of all, it’s inexpensive. A 4 month supply meant to treat your entire head is $39.95. So, you can imagine how much a bottle will last you when you’re only using a pea size amount on your eyebrows. This is probably the best, most inexpensive way to get those Cara Delevingne eyebrows you’ve been lusting after. Like anything else, it takes commitment to get results. You’ll need to apply a pea sized amount to each eyebrow with a cotton swab, 2 times per day consistently. You may see results within a week, but most women see fullness return within 4-6 weeks. The key is staying consistent.
Full disclaimer: This is an off label use of Rogaine. Try at your own risk. Never use Rogaine on your eyelashes, proceed with caution, and use a tissue to cover your eyes before applying the solution to your eyebrows.
