How Do I Cover Up My Grey Brows?
Are your eyebrows starting to go grey? Whether it’s only a few hairs or the entire brow, there are many reasons why we might want to conceal our greying brows. Not just to make ourselves look younger, a greying eyebrow can also look more sparse and thin, giving off the impression of unhealthy brow hair. If you’re looking for some simple, easy ways to fix this common problem, The Beauty & Brow Parlour has you covered!
What Causes Grey Brows?
Grey brows are caused by the same biological process that causes all the other hair on our body to lose its colour. The older we get, the less pigment we have in our hair follicles. The pigment cells slowly start to die off as we age, resulting in fewer and fewer active cells each time our hair grows back. The fewer pigment cells we have in our hair, the less colour we can see.
Why Has My Hair Gone Grey So Early?
It’s a common misconception that stress causes our hair to go grey, but that’s simply not the case. The rate and age at which you start losing your colour will depend mostly on genetics. If your parents went grey early on, then you’re probably heading down the same path — and vice versa. There are, however, a few medical conditions (such as vitiligo) that can accelerate this process. Vitamin deficiencies may also contribute to premature greying and poor hair health in general.
Brow Tinting At Home
While many people may choose to pluck out their grey brow hairs at home, we wouldn’t recommend it. Not only do you risk making your brow look patchy or sparse, but you can also alter your brow line, resulting in a shape that’s too short or simply wrong for your face. Any sort of alterations to your eyebrows are always best left to the professionals.
If you’re looking for something quick and easy you can do at home or on the go, you can’t go past a high-quality brow powder. Matched to whatever colour you require, a brow powder allows you to hide those pesky grey hairs with a quick application whenever you need it. While not a permanent solution, it will usually last all day and can be re-applied whenever necessary. A brow perfector or eyebrow pencil can also be used in the same way, assuming you’ve got the correct shade to match your hair colour.
Permanently Dying My Grey Brows
If you need a longer-lasting solution, brow tinting is another great option. Whether it’s traditional dying or henna brow tinting, this form of cosmetic colouring is highly effective. Usually lasting around a month (depending on the type of dye and conditions it’s subject to), brow tinting offers you an easy way to keep your eyebrows looking lush and healthy for long periods. With a quick and easy procedure (that’s also affordable), you’ll be able to say goodbye to those grey brows forever!
