Exclamation ahhhh please read! - August 11th 2011, 06:54 PM

so I really dont know what to do...In January I Became so addicted to plucking my eyebrows that I plucked them both too short. ONE grew back nice and thick (like I would like it) and the OTHER eyebrow grew back very thin, sparse and wispy...I'm afraid it won't ever grow or penciling will clog hair follicles...Have any of you tried any home remedies for this? let me know! I need to get rid of my plucking addiction first.:/

To get rid of your plucking addiction (if I were in you situation) I would first remove al tweezers in my house, or put them somewhere where you can't get to them. Then just leave your eye brows be. If you really feel like they are getting to "ugly" or getting to thick, then you can go to a professional and get them waxed. If you realize that you are having the same problem with waxing, then slowly stop waxing. I know it's easier said then done. As for making them look even, I don't know what you could do. I wish I could help you more. Give it time, maybe you doctor could help you?

Hair growth can be encouraged by different vitamin supplements, such as fish oil, vitamin A, Zinc, and vitamin E. A high protein diet also helps encourage hair growth. I'm not sure of any specific remedy for eyebrows, but I know that all of these encourage healthy hair growth and nail growth.
Hair pulling is a form of self harm, and if you are wanting to quit, take a look at our Alternatives to Self Harm page. These can help you get through moments where you want to pull.
I hope this helps, if you need anything, feel free to message me!
