Minoxidil for Eyebrows. Minoxidil stimulates hair follicles, be they on your head, your chin, or your eyebrows. Apply Minoxidil carefully and follow the instructions and within 10-12 weeks, your brows will be significantly thicker!
Minoxidil for Eyebrows
While Minoxidil was designed for those looking to grow head hair, the same effects will occur on any part of your body that grows hair – including your eyebrows. Minoxidil works by increasing blood flow to the follicles in your skin, regardless of on your head, chin, legs, back or eyebrows.
The main reason 5% Minoxidil is recommended for men is that, in women, 5% application will cause extra hair growth where ever it is applied.
Application of Minoxidil to your Eyebrows
BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE… BE EXTRA CAREFUL WHEN APPLYING ANYTHING CLOSE TO YOUR EYES!
The application guidelines are, almost exactly, the same as for your head. First of all, wash your eyebrows with a gentle soap and fully dry them.
Take 1ml of Minoxidil in the dropper and dab it gently on to both eyebrows (1ml is more than enough for both brows). Be careful… if it gets in your eyes, it stings. Wash your eye thoroughly with warm water.
With your fingertips, gently massage the Minoxidil in to your skin, from one end of the brow to the other.
Repeat this routine twice (2 times) per day and your brows will show some significant thickening in around 10-12 weeks. Expect a small amount of ‘shedding’ in the first week or two, this is a normal part of the process of getting rid of old, weak hairs and replacing them with healthy new ones.

Once you have applied the Minoxidil, leave it alone! For at least 2-3 hours. If it gets wet, of you wear a low hat, or anything that might get in the way of the Minox, you will not get the best results. Leave it alone for as long as you can to do its job.
Minoxidil for Eyebrows – for Men or Women
This article may appeal more to women, than men. For many women, plucking their eyebrows is a daily task, but today’s trend for bushier brows has left many women, perhaps, regretting the plucking. For many women – especially those who have been plucking their brows for many years – there may be little that can be done, but if your brows do continue to sprout after plucking, there is still a great chance of reviving those old follicles.
