When you decide to commit to a journey towards thick eyebrows, you are aware that this commitment requires patience. Restoring your hair takes time and will not be an overnight process. But let me tell you, it will be worth it!
Everyone is different, some may see results within weeks and some within months, everyone is different but the human body is an amazing thing and with the right steps, can restore itself in an incredible way.
It’s important that you trust your body’s process, giving it plenty of nutrition as it goes through the rebuilding process. By investing in your body, you are investing in the most important relationship in your life, that being the relationship with yourself! You are worth it.
Today, we are going to discuss protein.
Now, while you may immediately think of a diet high in meat when you think of protein, I can assure you this is not the case at all. Before we go through the options let's discuss protein a little further.
If you aren’t eating enough protein, you could notice that your hair is thinning. Your hair is mostly made of protein. Please note that a protein deficiency is indeed a VERY rare thing — the only places you typically ever see it is in countries where there aren’t enough calories in the diet.
As hair is made of protein, ensuring you have enough protein in your diet is crucial for making hair strong and healthy. If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair is likely to become dry, brittle and weak, this being the hair on your scalp AND your brows! Extremely low protein diets may result in hair loss and most certaintly not thick eyebows
So, you may be wondering......what are the best sources of protein that you can add to your daily diet? Let's go through them.
1. Pumpkin Seeds.
These little gems are the No.1 food you should be looking at to help restore your eyebrow hair. Pumpkin Seeds are very high in Protein, Omega 3, Zinc, Vitamin A, E & K, and Biotin. Pumpkin seeds contain linoleic and oleic acid, oils that affect androgen levels in the body (lack of androgen is believed to be the primary cause of hair loss) and cucurbitin, a unique amino that is responsible for their effect on eyebrow hair growth as well as scalp hair growth.
Spirulina contains about 60%- 70% Protein, not only that, it is a complete protein containing all essential amino acids. Add to your daily smoothie for an injection of goodness (Add Banana to your smoothie to reduce the strong flavour)
3. Nutritional yeast.
Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast. It is a complete protein, it has 18 amino acids and nine grams of protein in three tablespoons. This can be foud at most health food stores.
Other foods great for protein intake are:
7. Chia or Hemp Seeds.
8. Raw nuts (like almonds, Brazil nuts, pecans, hazelnuts, and pine nuts).
11. Wild Salmon

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.
