The Trick To Hiding Unruly Regrowth Under Bleached Brows

If you are planning on bleaching your eyebrows, be prepared for the upkeep. When you lighten the hair on your head, you have to worry about touching up your roots every four to six weeks. Meanwhile, bleached eyebrows will turn from invisible to salt and pepper within two weeks. New growth is more noticeable on brows since the hairs are so short. They look two-toned instead of changing all at once because strands grow in three phases.


The first step in this process is called anagen. It's when new hairs begin growing in the root. Then there's catagen, a transitional time where the blood supply slows down until it is cut off from the follicles. The final part is called telogen or the resting phase. It lasts the longest. Your hair does nothing until it eventually sheds off, and the process begins again. Since not all of the growth is synchronized, you'll notice your natural color peaking through rather quickly. It's not healthy for your brows to get bleached too often, so you'll need to find ways to hide these speaks of color.

Tinted eyebrow gel

Tinted eyebrow gel is a quick and easy way to tame outgrown brows. Not only will this product keep any unruly eyebrow hairs in place, but the tint will disguise any unbleached areas from standing out. Of course, the color you choose will depend on your complexion. Grazia recommends using a light blonde shade or a soft brunette. However, if your eyebrows are bleached to almost invisible, you may want to opt for a grey gel.


Once you have the tinted eyebrow gel that works best for you, there is really only one step. Run the provided spoolie loaded with the product over your brows, and you're all set. Repeat until you're satisfied with the coverage. If you like your brows to look sculpted, you can use concealer to tidy up the edges. You can even use your tinted gel daily to keep your eyebrows in place.


The concealer method is a great way to hide new growth in your bleached brows. You don't need to purchase any new products, and it won't add much more time to your makeup routine. First, you'll need a spoolie to brush your brows. If you don't have one, you can clean off an old mascara wand or use a toothbrush. You'll also need a concealer that matches your complexion.


Depending on how overgrown your bleached brows are, you can start with a color corrector. What color you use depends on your complexion. Pick up some of the product with your spoolie and brush it through your brows. Marie Claire recommends combing it in the opposite direction of growth and then the way you usually do. Next, apply the concealer the same way. Continue to add more until you're happy with how it looks. Finally, use a translucent setting powder over the arch of your brows to keep everything in place.

Eyebrow serum

Continually using bleach can be very damaging to your hair. It's well-known that once people go platinum, they'll have to put in the work to keep every strand as healthy as possible. It only makes sense that even your eyebrows will benefit from moisturizing products after they've gone through bleaching. The cuticle is lifted for the color to oxidize and lighten. Although, if you continue to bleach your hair over and over again, your cuticle can become permanently raised. This is when you'll notice damage like dry and brittle hair.


Eyebrows require lots of bleaching if you want them to look pristine. Stretching out the time between each lightening session by covering up new growth with makeup is one way to keep your eyebrows healthy. However, you should also add an eyebrow serum or conditioner to your haircare routine. It'll provide the strands with much-needed vitamins and peptides. Then, you can continue bleaching your brows without causing too much damage.
