How Jessica Alba got her eyebrows backYou may have noticed Jessica Alba looking a little different these days. Like many of us, Alba fell into the popular 90’s trend of plucking her eyebrows to within an inch of their life.

What she, and most of us didn’t realise at the time, was that over-plucked hairs don’t grow back. So, as the trend shifted to full, HD brows, it left many women unable to achieve the look. No level of pencilling can help you to achieve full, luscious brows, so just how did Alba achieve thick bushy eyebrows again?

Could the secret be prenatal vitamins?

Alba has credited her new, healthy brows to prenatal vitamins. She also claims she stopped plucking for around two years. Some nutrients not found in your average multivitamin, are found in prenatal vitamins. These include folic acid, iron and Vitamin D.

Folic acid is loosely linked to healthy hair growth. And so is iron. Studies have also discovered that those suffering from alopecia areata, a type of hair loss, often have a Vitamin D deficiency. So, increasing all three of these nutrients could help the hair to regrow.

It’s a bit of a long shot however. Plus, there’s the fact it takes years to see results. So, what if you’re looking for a more immediate treatment? Well, an eyebrow restoration could be the answer.

What is eyebrows restoration?

Eyebrow restoration treatment is becoming increasingly popular. There are two types available. You can either use Minoxidil – a topical treatment which comes in two different strengths. This has proven to be really successful in mild hair loss conditions.

The other option if the eyebrow hairs have been missing for some time, would be surgery. Similar to a hair transplant, hairs are taken from the back or sides of the head, and implanted into the brows.

Now, as the hairs of the brows are a different texture to the hairs on the head, this procedure requires a very skilled surgeon. Minoxidil can also be used alongside surgery to boost results.

Overall, if you’ve overplucked your brows and you’re now paying for it, there are ways you can restore them to their thick, full glory. Why not find out more about a brow restoration today?
