How to get thicker eyebrows fast

Updated February 21, 2017

Eyebrows enhance the features on the face. Not only are they a frame for the face, which enhances bone structure, but they also draw attention to your eyes. Whether it is due to naturally sparse eyebrows, or over-plucking them, there are ways to get thicker eyebrows fast. Try some natural remedies to nourish the eyebrows and encourage growth. In the meantime, utilise cosmetics to make the eyebrows look thicker.

Apply olive oil to eyebrows once per day at bedtime. It helps the eyebrows get thicker by moisturising hair follicles. This keeps them healthy and encourages hair growth. Apply two or three drops of olive oil on a cotton swab. Brush the olive oil on the eyebrows using the swab. Leave it on overnight and wash off in the morning.

Put petroleum jelly on eyebrows twice a day. Dip a cotton swab into the container and apply to the eyebrows. Apply it twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Use a bit less in the morning so that it does not make your face look greasy. Petroleum jelly traps moisture in the skin which moisturises the follicles in your eyebrows.

Apply coconut oil to eyebrows once a day. Coconut oil can help them grow back thicker and faster without being very greasy. It moisturises the eyebrow hairs and also keeps the hair follicles healthy, which helps the hair grow. Dip a finger into a jar or contianer of coconut oil and put it on the eyebrows. Do this before bed and wash it off in the morning.

Put aloe vera gel onto eyebrows twice per day. If possible, use the gel directly from an aloe vera plant. Aloe vera reduces sebum which can block hair follicles. Break open a leaf and apply the aloe vera to the eyebrows using a finger. If you don't have access to an aloe vera plant, purchase aloe vera gel at any drugstore. Only use a little bit as it can make them feel sticky if you use too much.


It is best to use just one of these methods at a time. Eyebrow pencil can help disguise sparse eyebrows.
