Confession: I’ve been trying to grow my brows out for a good four months now. I haven’t been entirely successful, with some areas of my brows remaining “dead zones”, those damaged follicles a consequence of overzealous plucking back in my teenage years. While those hairs probably won’t ever grow back, I have found more success in growing out my brows over the last four months than any prior attempts over the last seven years.
The trick to getting them full and healthy is 70 percent discipline and maybe 30 percent luck and genetics. If you’re exploring brow growth serums, you have to remember to apply them religiously for the best results. You’ll also need to keep your hands off those tweezers – you’ll find yourself itching to reach for ‘em as the weeks go by (the hardest part of the whole ordeal for me, to be honest).
Sure, your brows may begin to look a little unkempt or unruly, but the whole point in growing out your brows is to have them grow beyond your existing brow shape. So naturally, it’s going to get a little messy. Grit your teeth and bear with it for a bit. Of course, if it all gets a little too overwhelming, you can groom them yourself, but again, discipline is required.
