How to achieve fuller eyebrows with natural remedies



This topic was on request from one of my avid readers, and when she asked how to get naturally thicker brows, I had to look around for answers, plus I thought to share with you all....

Unmade eyebrows tend to hide the perfect features of a beautiful lady… especially since, time and again it has been said that eyebrows complete our facial looks. Righty done eyebrows help us accentuate the desired appeal on the face. Depending on the facial structure, some would prefer to keep their eyebrows thick, while some would prefer it to be thin.

However, when you go with deeper and thicker eyebrows, it will highlight the beauty of your face, thus giving you the freedom to shape them in a desired manner plus the required definition. And this is one of the reasons as to why most women crave for thicker eyebrows.


 
There was a time when pencil thin eye brows, which were neatly shaped, dominated the fashion industry. But now thick eyebrows are now back in vogue, and can be seen sported by a lot of women on fashion runways and silver screens. Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Jennifer Conelly are few of the hollywood actresses known to sport natural eyebrows, which also made them look gorgeous and young.

Lot of fashion makers say that ‘more natural the eyebrows reflects more beauty and youth’.

Let’s find out natural ways in which you can achieve thicker eyebrows, especially in a hassle free manner.



Natural remedies on how to make eyebrows thicker:

Natural remedies to make thicker eyebrows are said to be effective, safe as they do not cause any side effects. To get more hair growth on your eyebrows, follow these simple tips:

1. Castor Oil:



Castor oil is a very old and a tried and tested remedy to get thicker and prominent eyebrows. It is inexpensive and is easily available in the market.


All you need to do is take a little castor oil on your fingertips and apply directly on to your eyebrows. Leave this overnight and wash off in the morning. You can witness possible changes in about 3-4 weeks of time.


2. Vaseline:



Vaseline brand owned Vaseline petroleum jelly is claimed to be effective in thickening of the eyebrows as it helps condition and moisturize the area, thus helping you keep your eyebrow hair straight and firm.

Take small amount of Vaseline petroleum jelly and apply on and around your eyebrow area 2-3 times every day. In a month’s time, you can see positive results, thus boosting your chances of enhancing your natural beauty.

3. Coconut Oil:

Well known for its properties in boosting hair growth, Coconut oil for eye brows is yet another solution. This will help speed the hair growth on your eyebrows along with offering thick hair, which further will help you shape better.

Apply some coconut oil directly to your eyebrows and leave overnight for best results.


4. Onion Juice:



Fresh onion juice, when applied on the eyebrows, will help stimulate new hair growth. Onions are high on sulfur, and are known to increase blood circulation in the area.



Important Tips:

Sometimes, deficiency of Vitamins can hamper hair growth. So its beneficial to eat foods rich in Vitamins B, C, E and H (Biotin) or also to take multi-vitamin tablets/capsules after seeking doctor’s advice.



Consume at least 8 to 10 glasses each day. This will help you flush out all the toxins from your system.

Avoid picture perfect threading of eyebrows, as it sometimes ruin the natural eyebrow shape.
Avoid too thin eyebrows as they will require frequent waxing or threading, thus loosening the skin around the eye area.
If you have naturally thin eyebrows avoid shaping them. However, slight modifications are fine as long as they don’t play with the shape and width.
Make sure that the shape of the eyebrows suits your face type, as there are different shapes that suit different face structures.
Also you sometimes can use eyebrow pencils to define your thin eyebrows.

Some of these basic steps, when adapted in your daily routine, will help you keep your eyebrows natural, with excellent shape and texture, thus enhancing your beauty and glow.

Hope these tips will help you to achieve desired results.

Inspiration Saturday; helpful tips on how to reach your goals


There are a few things you can do if you want to learn how to get motivated to reach all your goals and fulfill all your dreams, no matter how crazy they might seem sometimes. Stephen R. Covey once said that, “Motivation is fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly,” and he couldn’t be more right! Your motivation is extremely important, since it’s the thing that drives you towards a goal and keeps you working through a task when things get tough. Staying motivated is not always easy, especially when things don’t go as planned. You shouldn’t lose hope though and you shouldn’t give up under any circumstances. Every little thing has its ups and downs, but if you manage to stay motivated, you will be able to overcome any obstacle that might appear in your path. Here are a few very helpful tips on how to get motivated to reach your goals that you should consider if you are determined to succeed in anything you want to do: 

1. SET CLEAR GOALS


One of the first things you should do if you want to learn how to get motivated to fulfill all your dreams is to set some clear goals that will give you a direction to focus on. Also, make sure your goals are measurable and that they have an end point because just like Milton Erickson, the famous hypnotherapist, said, “A goal without a date is just a dream.” Try to constantly remind yourself of your goals and always check your progress, because this will help you stay motivated and do everything in your power to pursue your dreams.

2. FIND INSPIRATION


In order to stay motivated to reach all your goals, try to find all kinds of things that will inspire you and help you stay on track. For example, you could read other people’s success stories and see what they did to become so successful. Focus on the positive aspects of your goals and work hard to achieve them! Surround yourself with people who inspire you and don’t be afraid to ask for their help if you’re feeling a little demotivated. I’m sure they will be more than happy to help you and you will manage to see things from a different perspective.

3. REWARD YOURSELF


Reward yourself each time you manage to complete one step or one task that will help you reach your bigger goal. Try to feel that reward, enjoy it, because when you associate positive feelings with a certain goal, you reinforce that feeling with your subconscious and the more positive those feeling are, the more motivated you will be to start working towards fulfilling your dream.

4. COMMIT PUBLICLY


Make your goal public because this way, you will be more willing to do everything in your power to achieve it, since no one likes to look bad in front of other people. Just tell your friends, your family members or your co-workers about your goals and commit to giving progress updates to each of them every week or so.

5. START SMALL


When you try to reach your goals, start small, really small. If you have a hard time getting started, then you could do small, baby steps each day and really commit to this habit. Soon, you will manage to increase those steps and you will surely be amazed by the progress you’ve made. Let’s say that, for example, your goal is to wake up early every morning; instead of waking up 3 hours earlier the next day, you could try waking up a half an hour earlier and then do that for an entire week. Just remember: baby steps!

6. ASK FOR SUPPORT


Don’t do this alone! When you feel demotivated, ask for help and get support from your loved ones. Also, you could find someone who has a similar goal and you could share different experiences. You could encourage each other when you’re feeling down and this way, you will find the energy to work hard enough to fulfill all your dreams.

7. SQUASH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS


In order to focus on reaching your goals, try to squash all negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Recognize negative self-talk and try replacing it with corresponding positive thoughts. Don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t be afraid to fail because failure can actually be the best teacher you’ll ever have. 

It’s not easy staying motivated all the time, since there are a lot of things that might not go according to your plan. You shouldn’t let yourself be discouraged though; just work hard, have patience, do everything in your power to fulfill your dreams and you will be successful. Do you know any other tips on how to get motivated and achieve your goals? Please share your thoughts with us in the comments section!

5 reasons why your hair is not growing by klaus say kinks

Our hair is not an easy matter. Whether you’re just considering going natural or you’ve been at it for 5 years, there are some potential reasons why your hair may not be growing as well as you would like.

Reason #1: You Still Take Care of Your Hair as if It was Relaxed

Although natural hair is healthier than relaxed hair (in the sense that relaxers permanently break bonds holding together the proteins in your hair), it is still quite fragile and delicate. Comb with wide toothed combs and avoid brushes that may rip your hair strands. Do not avoid water; in fact, water is your hair’s best friend. If your hair is still short, gone are the days when you can just put your hair in a ponytail when you’re running late, so prepare yourself with a few quick and easy hairstyles that you can manage in the car (or if you dare, the bus) while stuck in traffic jams on the way to work.

Reason #2: You Don’t Let Your Hair Breathe or Rest

Do you take out your attach one night just to go to the salon the next day? Are you re-twisting each and every single night? Haba let your hair relax! Over-manipulation means your fingers have more chance to disturb your hair and cause it to knot on itself or break. If you play with your hair too much, you will be surprised that you don’t see any growth.

As for braiding and weaving, too much of this can also prevent your hair from growing, even if you are trying to let it rest. When you are repeatedly getting small or heavy braids and weaves, installed by stylists with no regard for your hair (the kind that bend your neck in all directions trying to comb), chances are that your hair, especially your edges, will suffer. Alternate protective styles – braids, weaves, and wigs – with styles that only use your own hair. If you are not ready to wear your hair out, wigs are a better option than weaves since you can remove them in the evening and moisturize your hair.

Reason #3: Your Hair is Not Well Balanced

Speaking of moisture, your hair may not be growing because it does not have the right balance of protein and moisture. If your hair is very stretchy and limp, you may need more protein. If you cannot find a protein based conditioner, make your own using a few eggs, honey, and oil.

If your hair feels dry and brittle, you probably need more moisture. With the disrespectful Naija air, this may seem like a never ending battle, but you can beat the weather by using a liquid based leave in conditioner (one whose first ingredient is water), follow it up with an oil like coconut oil, and then apply your styling cream. This LOC method (leave in, oil, cream) is a surefire way to lock in moisture.

Reason #4: You Are Not Measuring it Correctly

Shrinkage is both our friend and deepest enemy, because it lets us have double or triple the style options as those with straight hair. However, shrinkage can also make it seem as if your hair is not growing. The most accurate length checks are performed on straightened hair; but you can do one just as well by stretching your over the course of several days using braids, twists, or threading.

You may be tempted to check your hair every month or every few weeks, but trust me, all you will do is vex yourself. Furthermore, holding onto dead ends and using them to check your length is counterproductive. You should trim your hair regularly; you will feel better when you can say that your hair is even and long, rather than 1 strand of your countless strands is long and the rest are jagga jagga.

Reason #5: You Do Not Love Your Hair

Gbam! This is the real problem. Either you’re ‘jealousing’ someone else’s hair type or you’re always calling your own hair rough, difficult, ugly, or unmanageable. If you do not show your hair any love, it will not prosper. That is it.

Your natural hair is like a rose bush: you must pay careful attention to it, learn how to navigate it without injuring yourself (physically or emotionally), prune/trim it regularly, feed it with enough nutrients without suffocating it, and it will reward you in due time.
