Do you find yourself looking at your brows, waiting for them to grow and not seeing any results?
You've stopped waxing them, you’re doing everything right, and yet you don’t have any new growth, leaving you constantly frustrated by a lack of progress.
This very thing happened to me in the early stages of my brow journey until I smartened up, but I needed several a-ha moments to truly understand where I was going wrong.
Sometimes we are not even sure what we need until it is staring us right in the face.
Maya, a Hello Brows customer, recovering brow plucker, 90's teen and subject of this week’s case study, successfully grew her brows back to their original form.
Maya had a habit of plucking her brows to help reduce anxiety, stress and depression, this lead to her brows looking over plucked and worse for wear.
Unfortunately for her, her brow condition was not helping her own stress levels in any way and she was stressed about not being able to grow it back, leading to a vicious cycle.
Maya was hoping that patience would be the only thing she need to grow them back.
“I knew in my heart it was possible to make my brows grow back to where I wanted them to be, but I did not have the knowledge to make it happen.”
Maya never had her brows done due to her already having done the damage herself. Her brows were almost non-existent and she was slightly fearful that she may never get them back.
“I knew I needed help fast and Hello Brows oil was recommended as an option that was natural and vegan – two things that are very important to me”
Maya gave herself confidence that all hope wasn't gone. She knew that by sticking to nightly treatment and eating the recommended foods, she would was doing everything she needed for a chance to regrow her brows.
“I had the passion to make it happen but I needed help to make it work.”
This is more common than many realise.
You’ve got the vision and passion, you just don’t have any knowledge of where to begin.
You see, one thing I’ve learnt in my time is that you must have a plan, and the best plan involves a holistic approach, to look at internal factors as well as external. That’s how we’ve built a following of over 60,000 people who have a real appreciation for ethical skincare, beauty and the industry. It’s the principle we’ve built our business on.
Committing to a plan to grow back your brows will give you results. Wishful thinking won’t cut it. And sometimes, you need a more immediate plan to get you refocused and back on track, especially when you start looking at Groupon eyebrow tattoo packages in a state of panic, instead of a calm state of mind.
It’s like going to the supermarket when you’re starving!
You’re going to make poor decisions and fill up on junk food. It’s guaranteed.
Not to say that cosmetic tattooing is bad, but you need to ensure you do your research and not go for what is available and cheap.
Can you relate?
Thankfully, you don’t have to spend big money nor do you have to put in a lot of time to regrow your brows. All you need is a commitment to eat the right foods and apply a nightly treatment before bed, tying this into your nightly routine. Maya was focused and keen, and soon knew exactly where she was going.
So what happened?
The success of Maya's brows gave her the confidence she once had prior to plucking.
Maya learned a lot. In fact Maya became aware that her whole approach to her beauty regime was misaligned to where it needed to be. She took our advice on and started treating her body very differently to the way she had in the past. In fact she credits herself as being a completely new person.
“I used to feel very self-conscious of my brows but now I am happier than I thought I would be because I can see extra benefits after using the treatment and eating the right foods”
Through this new found confidence, Maya found that her eyes were more prominent and made her feel more appealing. She also felt like her face was more youthful looking and a lot softer looking.
Not bad for someone who had a habit of plucking them out daily!

Whether you have tried it in the salon, at home or not at all, I am going to share my eyebrow tinting experience with you.
I consider myself as a DIY brow tinting professional. I have not had professional training just plain ol' "on the job experience". I have been dying my eyebrows at home for around 15 years. To explain a little about me, I am a natural blonde who has been dying her hair the darkest shade of brown for 15 years, I am sure you are thinking, wow that sounds like a whole lot of maintenance? Let me tell you,
Agh the 90's. When they were finally over we were happy but once they were more of a memory than just last year, we began to realise how cool they actually were. We had Nirvana, Lil Kim, The Lion King, Space Jam, The Spice Girls, Saved By The Bell, Windows 95 and happy pants. Let's be honest....it was a great era to be apart of.....mostly.
