It’s time to clear the air – people constantly ask if it’s true that if you remove your hair by pulling it out at the root over a long period of time, it can slow down growth and damage the follicle. Here’s the deal, this can be true for any form of hair removal, not just waxing. We all have that friend that went a little crazy in high school and now struggles to grow much of anything in the brow department. Another reason to make sure the person doing your brows is educated and get a great shape without taking too much.
Keep in mind that body hair generally grows on a cycle of about 28 days, so if you pull out hair, it will take that amount of time to grow back to where it can be removed again. Which is why we tell our clients not to come in more than once a month for a shaping. It's best to keep all of your brow hair on one growth cycle - the shape lasts much longer that way.
And sad to say, some brows just will not grow back to how they looked when you were younger due to damage to the hair follicle over time. It takes time for brows shaped a certain way (good or bad) to grow back. Giving it a few months where you don't tweeze anything can be very helpful, then come see us at The Boom and we’ll help you grow your shape back, while still cleaning up what doesn't need to be there. It’s truly the best way to get back to your roots.
For those that need a little help, Castor Oil and Vitamin E are nutrient rich oils that can help condition and strengthen hair, so they might be helpful depending on your circumstance. But, if you want results fast, use a growth serum to help stimulate the damaged follicle and encourage new hair growth. The serum goes well past what castor oil can do. It takes around 3 weeks before you start to see a change, and up to six months to see the maximum results. We recommend using it morning and night for the first month to help get things moving along and then just once a day after you reach your desired fullness.Patience…patience….patience - gorgeous brows are worth the wait!
