How to Repair Eyebrow Loss

by Cynthia Measom

Eyebrow loss can result from health-related conditions, overplucking or accidents. In many cases, the problem can be rectified easily and inexpensively at home. The solutions can be short term or long term depending on the look you want.

Items you will need

  • Eyebrow brush
  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Eyebrow powder
  • Eyebrow gel
  • Human hair eyebrows
  • Rogaine
  • Cotton swabs

Fill in Brows With Makeup

Step 1

Brush your brows outward with an eyebrow brush. This will help you determine which areas have suffered hair loss and need to be filled in with makeup.

Step 2

Fill in the sparse areas with a sharpened eyebrow pencil that is two shades darker than your hair color. Use short, feathered strokes. Keep your hand steady during application so the result looks as natural as possible. After applying, blend the pencil marks with an eyebrow brush.

Step 3

Apply eyebrow powder with the accompanying brush applicator to further soften the effect of the liner.

Step 4

Apply clear eyebrow gel to set and smooth your brows.

Apply Human Hair Eyebrows

Step 1

Choose the appropriate color of human hair brows. If you have no brows, choose a color that is no more than two shades darker than your hair color.

Step 2

Remove the human hair eyebrow from the backing.

Step 3

Apply the eyebrow adhesive to the back of the eyebrow. Wait 30 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky.

Step 4

Place the end of the eyebrow over the inner corner of your eye, being mindful of your natural brow line. The middle of the eyebrow should be a bit past the outer corner of your iris, while the other end of the eyebrow should be over the outer corner of the eye.

Step 5

Press your fingertips along the brow to secure it to your brow line.

Regrow Eyebrow Hair With Rogaine

Step 1

Brush your brows outward with an eyebrow brush. This will help stimulate growth.

Step 2

Apply Rogaine to the eyebrow with a cotton swab. Do not get the product in your eyes.

Step 3

Repeat the application process twice daily for a few weeks until you notice growth. Then apply the Rogaine to your brows once or twice per week.

Step 4

If you have obtained the desired growth, limit the application of Rogaine to approximately once every 14 days, or twice per month.

Warnings

  • Discontinuing the use of Rogaine can result in hair loss.
