In an earlier article we took a look at the various different possible home remedies to aid eyebrow growth and one of them was the use of coconut oil.
In fact, many of the various types of home remedies included coconut oil as some part of the process so it is worth taking a close look at it.
Coconut Oil For Hair Growth
The use of coconut oil on the hair is not a recent discovery. It is a vital ingredient in hair conditioners and is known to provide nutrients that help keep the hair looking healthy and shiny. The same qualities of coconut oil that are used for the hair on top of your head will also work for use on the eyebrows too.
Not only is coconut oil an extremely effective product for the hair but it is also very beneficial to the skin. It acts as a moisturizer and nourishes the skin with an ability to penetrate and affect the cells. It also acts as a treatment against infections which all adds up to far better growing conditions for any hair.
If the hair follicles in the brow line have been damaged due to over plucking, waxing, threading or other means, the introduction of coconut oil to the area will speed up the process of improving the recovery. We know that in order for hair to grow strongly the hair follicles must be healthy and the fatty acids present in the form of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) will help to provide those healthy conditions.
The fact that studies have found that the MCTs of coconut oil also has the ability to penetrate the hair to make it stronger means that there is a dual action benefit going on. Not only will the coconut oil help the skin to provide healthy conditions at the root of the hair, it will also penetrate the hair shaft itself to make it stronger and less prone to breakage.
For all of the reasons provided above it is therefore worthwhile looking for eyebrow treatment products, whether they are stimulators or conditioners, that contain coconut oil.
Beneficial Properties of Coconut Oil
When looking at the ingredients that make up eyebrow conditioners and eyebrow stimulators it may not be immediately obvious that there is coconut oil in them. This is where a little bit of knowledge about the various components of coconut oil comes in handy.
Coconut oil is made up of three main active chemicals that provide the majority of beneficial qualities. They are lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid. When searching through the ingredients list on any product, as well as looking specifically for coconut oil, you should look for the existence of any or all of these listed acids too.
If you cannot find a product that contains coconut oil and you wish to try it out on your brows there is no reason why you cannot use it exclusively. There are no side effects associated with the use of coconut oil on the skin. Applying it every day will give your brows a tremendous opportunity to grow strong and thick once your follicles have begun to repair themselves.
The worst that can happen is that there is no noticeable difference in the appearance of the eyebrows. Meanwhile the skin in that area is going to look wonderfully renewed and revitalized.
This is a natural method of treating the eyebrows no matter whether you are looking to make them appear thicker or trying to fill in the sparse growth areas. Return to the home page to find out about other products and ideas available to treat your eyebrows.
