Aesthetically, eyebrows frame the face or make a statement by aiding in facial expressions. From a practical standpoint, they help keep dust and debris out of the eyes. Almond oil can aid in regrowing sparse or thinning brows.
Causes for Eyebrow Loss
Hormone imbalances, medications, scarring or trauma, or lack of nutrients may cause eyebrows to shed unusual amounts of hair. Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease consisting of temporary patchy hair loss, is experienced by about 1 percent of the population, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology.
How Hair Grows
Hair consists of two main parts: a protein shaft above the scalp, and a root in the follicle below the scalp. Blood circulation takes nutrients to the follicle to produce hair growth, according to HairFollicle.com. The follicle may shrink and stop producing, causing the hair to fall out and the appearance of balding or thinning.
What is Almond Oil?
Almond oil contains Vitamin E, Vitamin D, magnesium and calcium, all of which are necessary for healthy hair growth and follicle stimulation.
How It’s Used
Lack of blood flow can shrink the hair follicle. Ensure eyebrows get sufficient blood supply, oxygen and nutrients, directly and indirectly, by massaging almond oil into the eyebrows twice daily. Also, lowering the head below the heart can bring more blood to the area to correct the problem.
