You CAN Grow Thicker Eyebrows
Ladies, lay those tweezers down! That’s step number one. And if you have an eyebrow technician who waxes your precious brows, well, walk away. No more waxing! Let your eyebrows go.
If you’re frustrated with your thin, scraggly eyebrows, and can’t seem to grow a thicker, fuller pair, don’t despair, the beautiful world of science has once again developed groundbreaking research! Remember this company name—Osmotics. We’ll be learning more about their super product to grow thicker, healthier brows and lashes.
But first, let’s discuss eyebrows, that important frame to your eyes.
Thick or Thin....Is There an Ideal Shape?
We have interviewed New York City makeup legend, Sandy Linter, several times before for ‘Beauty Products & Trends.’ And we trust her judgment, because Sandy is one of the best professional makeup artists around.
Sandy Linter has had much to say about eyebrows. In fact, she has told us that thin brows are the biggest mistake women make, over and over again. Thin eyebrows are more aging, she says. Gentle trimming with scissors can tame the unruly hairs of the brow, and working with their natural shape, is the way to proceed, according to Linter.
“I don’t like overly thin, trying to be perfect brows,” Linter explains. “I like a fuller, more natural-looking brow. It is not an L.A. brow, but more like a ‘model’s brow.’ Look at the models, not the actresses in the magazines, for the correct eyebrow shape.”
The trend this year, once again, features thicker, fuller eyebrows. Of course, wearing bangs can help give the illusion of thicker brows.
Brow Stencils, Powders, Gels, Oh My!!!
When you can’t achieve the eyebrow set you’re looking for, well, you can ‘draw’ on a more perfect arch, shade in a thicker set, or stiffen the ones you’ve already got.
Eyebrow beauty is big business. There are many products out on the market to compensate for ‘less than perfect’ brows. There is even eyebrow transplantation, where finer hairs from the scalp are then transplanted to the eyebrow area. Or how about brow adhesion? That treatment involves thickening the brows by gluing a tiny fiber onto each existing hair.
According to Beverly Hills’ eyebrow icon to the stars, Anastasia Soare, there is a way to create great eyebrows. She explains it at her website. “Eyebrows must vary with each individual in shape, size, length, and color. A person’s face shape, cheekbones, and nose all affect the outcome of their brow shape. What I always try to achieve is a very well-groomed natural arch that will enhance all of your features and soften your look.”
Some of Anastasia’s A-list clientele include; Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Lucy Liu, Sharon Stone, and Madonna.
It would be nice to have Oprah’s resources and visit an eyebrow icon, but most of us are stuck right here with our natural brows and lashes. Some of us might not be that clever with an eyebrow stencil to fill in the perfect brow.
That’s where science is making the job a little easier.
FNS Nutrilash Encourages the Growth of Brows/Lashes
Marie Claire Magazine has called Osmotics’ FNS Nutrilash, one if its top 12 beauty breakthroughs. The all-natural formula is scientifically proven to stimulate the growth of healthy, strong eyebrows and eyelashes. One product that covers two important areas. Simply wonderful.
Francine Porter is the president and founder of the Osmotics cosmeceutical company. She says that FNS Nutrilash contains a unique combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that were originally used to heal stubborn wounds. It was then discovered that this combination ‘provided all the necessary nutrients in the precise ratio to promote strong, thick and healthy hair.’ A totally, safe and effective product. FNS, stands for ‘follicle nutrient system.’
“Nutrilash works because of the clinically proven formula,” Porter explains. “This is the only formula on the market that has a published clinical study to support the claims. The study was published on the Online Journal of Dermatology.”
Plucked Eyebrows Seem to Take Forever to Grow Back
Ladies, that’s why it’s important to lay down the tweezers, or to use them only to remove stray hairs under the brow .
Once you’ve tweezed or plucked those hairs and want them back, well, be prepared to wait, and wait.
“Eyebrow hairs grow at an average rate of 0.16 mm per day, “ Porter says. “So it typically takes about 63 days for a hair to grow back. I don’t think we know precisely why a plucked eyebrow hair takes so long to grow back. A plausible theory is that plucking the shorter, thicker brow hair (as opposed to scalp hair) causes more damage to the root. And perhaps it just seems longer because we are focusing on our brows every day in the mirror ( a watched pot never boils...)!”
Yes. Patience is required when trying to grow in thicker brows and longer lashes. You won’t see them sprout overnight. But according to Porter, you should see results after about 6-8 weeks while on the Nutrilash program. And once you start to see growth, you can go on a maintenance program and use only once or twice a week.
Just Brush On, Go, and Grow
Osmotics’ FNS Nutrilash treatments come packaged in a box of 28 single dose applications. It’s reasonably priced at $38.00. You ‘brush’ or ‘paint’ on the serum nightly before retiring. The single application sponge delivers the exact amount you need. There is enough product in one applicator to cover both brows and lashes. And anyone can use it, men and women, young and old.
“It’s hygienic and safer for the eye area, because you use it once and then toss,” Porter says. “It also ensures product freshness and efficacy, and it’s easier to apply to lashes and brows with the sponge tip applicator.”
And what makes Nutrilash a real winner, is its ability to help some cancer patients, too. All of Osmotics’ FNS products can be used before, during, and after chemotherapy. “We have been working with St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital’s (New York City) Comprehensive b****t Center & Patient Support Program. And their patients have seen good results with FNS. It really seems to help the hair grow back much faster after chemotherapy,” Porter explains
