DIY Hair & Eyebrow Regrowth Serum

I like BIG BROWS and I cannot lie!

It’s no secret that the days of over-plucking are long gone. (Sorry, early 00’s! We still love you). Big, beautiful, natural brows are officially IN, and also, they’re HERE TO STAY.

If you’re one of the many people who were part of the over-plucking craze, chances are your brows are still feelin’ sparse. Luckily, there are some things you can do to help reverse some of this damage. So before you try microblading or another more extreme option, try this DIY Eyebrow Regrowth Serum first!

About the DIY Eyebrow Regrowth Serum Ingredients

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary is one of the best essential oils for helping to stimulate new hair growth. A 2015 study compared using rosemary oil to the ingredient minoxidil, a popular hair regrowth treatment (ever heard of Rogaine?). In the study, participants received either rosemary oil or minoxidil to stimulate hair growth for 6 months.

At 3 months, neither group had more hair (whomp-whomp). But by 6 months, both groups saw significant increases in hair growth!

Even more amazing? The group that was treated with rosemary oil had slightly MORE hair growth than the minoxidil group!

Conclusion? Rosemary oil definitely works for hair re-growth, but it takes a long time and has to be used long term to continue working. But hey, it’s worth the wait!

Castor oil

Castor oil has a totally unique, super-thick texture. The rich, luxurious feel comes from the high amounts of ricinoleic acid present in the oil. This fatty acid helps restore dry follicles and adds shine. It’s also a great source of Vitamin E!

Although many sources claim castor oil helps stimulate hair growth, the truth is there is no hard evidence to support this. But it definitely helps nourish and condition the hair and skin, making it the perfect carrier oil to use with Rosemary Essential Oil.

This bottle of castor oil comes with a wand to make the application even easier.

Botaneri “Level Up” Tip

You can use this serum as an add-in to your shampoo for a boost of hair re-growth on your scalp! Simply mix as instructed above, but instead of using a mascara wand, add a few drops to your normal shampoo during your shower.
