I used to go to the nail salon regularly to get my eyebrows waxed. My mom would get her’s done and I thought it was just something I should do. I always had pretty thick eyebrows. I don’t have to fill them in too much because I have a good amount of hair. My day to day routine is just brushing a light amount of pomade through them and that’s it.
I had a few incidences where the ladies had waxed them a bit too thin, even though I would always tell them to keep them thick and just clean them up. I started getting afraid to get them done.
About a year ago, I started going to an esthetician and she asked me what I do to my eyebrows. I told her I get them waxed at a nail salon. She proceeded to tell me that that was the worst thing I could do. She explained how they use low-grade wax that is too hot. I told her that I go to a nice nail salon and she said, “believe me, they all use the same thing.”
After that, I started to rethink my brows. I decided to go a few months without getting them waxed. I was amazed how thick my brows got. I looked in the mirror and realized they were thicker than ever. “This is probably because I stopped getting them waxed,” I thought to myself. I took out a pair of tweezers and just did a quick clean up myself. Done! They were perfect. Why would I ever go back to waxing? All I needed was to every once in a while tweeze a few hairs and I’d be good to go. My brow hair grows slow, so it’s not like they are high maintenance.
Stopping wax has been the best thing. I love my brows more than ever.
Do you get your brows waxed, threaded??
