Will my eyebrows grow back fully if I've been plucking them for over 10 years? After 4 weeks they
are really thin & patchy, will they return to full thickness in more time?
Plucking, especially when done repeatedly, has a high chance of damaging the hair root. Since you have been plucking your eyebrows for over a decade, it's most likely that the brows will not return exactly to their former thickness. It could take six months to a year to really see how your eyebrows come back.
Excessive plucking can do so much damage to the skin below the eyebrows and the eyebrows themselves. I know this because I was into excessive plucking before, when it was all the rage to have sleek eyebrows.
I've grown my eyebrows, however, since I realized that natural-looking eyebrows make me look younger and fresher.
Here's what I did to grow back my eyebrows. Hopefully, this routine would work for you, too :-)
- I did (still do) threading instead of plucking.
- I massaged (still do) my eyebrows with virgin coconut oil to moisturize them and the skin under them.
- While I was waiting for my eyebrows to grow back, I'd use an eyebrow pencil and brow gel just to make my eyebrows look thicker than they actually were.
