Soft, natural, and full eyebrows are all the craze nowadays. With all the top models in the industry like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner going for a more simple, less defined look for their brows, this trend is not dying anytime soon.
But have you (like many of us) also over-plucked or waxed your eyebrows in the 2000s for that “Barely There” look? Wondering how to make your eyebrows grow overnight? Well you can’t make them grow overnight, but we’ve got loads of tips to help improve eyebrow growth and fullness.
How To Make Your Eyebrows Grow Overnight
Natural remedies are slower yet more sustainable methods to grow your eyebrows. Here are the top 5 ways to grow your eyebrows naturally.
Tip: Before applying anything directly to your brows, first do a patch test to see whether the substance causes harm to your skin or not.
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil seems to be the “cure-all” for hair, whether it’s the hair on your head or your lashes. It is not without reason that this oil is so popular. Research has found that this fat helps improve blood circulation, which enhances hair growth. The natural proteins of our hair are protected from breakage because of the fatty acids in this oil.
Before going to bed, apply a small amount of the oil to clean and dry brows. Massage the area gently for a few minutes. Rinse your eyebrows thoroughly in the morning.
2. Onion Juice
Yes, you read that right—onion juice. Now, before you think this is crazy and completely dismiss it, do note that onions contain sulfur and loads of minerals, which makes your brows grow faster and thicker.
For those who are brave enough to let onions this close enough to their eyes, here’s how to do it. Chop up some onion, blend it and then strain it.
Apply the juice to your brows (Be careful to avoid the eyes!) and leave it on for 5 minutes. Wash it off with a mild cleanser or cold water.
3. Petroleum Jelly
Petroleum jelly aka Vaseline is a great moisturizer, and it helps to retain the moisture and nourishment of your brows. Hair that is hydrated and nourished grows healthier and faster. Applying it will make your brows look smooth and shiny.

Use a small amount of petroleum jelly and take care to coat your entire eyebrow. If you have skin that is prone to acne, it’s better if you don’t use this method since petroleum jelly has a lot of oil in it.
4. Castor Oil
Castor oil is also an incredibly popular oil used as a hair growth stimulant. The oil contains many vitamins vital for healthy hair growth. Pregnant or lactating women should not use this, as it can get absorbed by the body and castor oil helps induce labor.
Just like with coconut oil, apply this to your brows at night and rinse it off the next morning.
5. Aloe Vera
We love aloe vera! It’s great for your skin, your hair, and your physical health and wellbeing as well. Aloe vera is packed with vitamins and minerals that stimulate hair growth. It will also get rid of excess oil and will give you volume permanently.
To apply it, cut open an aloe vera leaf and extract some of the gel. Apply it onto your brows and leave it on for around 30 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
6. Biotin Supplements
Biotin supplements have been used for healthy hair and nail growth. It is one of the most essential vitamins for improving hair strength, texture, and growth. These supplements provide nourishment to the follicles of your eyebrows, resulting in a better, fuller look. The vitamin is also very good for your metabolism and energy levels.
7. Topical Treatments
Creams and serums can get a little pricey, but they work much faster than natural remedies and healthy, balanced diets. Topical solutions like Rogaine and Latisse have been recommended by experts and consumers alike.
Board-certified dermatologists like Dr. Caroline Robinson have discussed how Rogaine does not only treat male pattern baldness but eyebrows as well.
Topical treatments like these are generally safe to use on your skin, but you should carefully avoid the eyes. And you should use these only under the guidance of a professional.
Ok, so the title was click-baity. There is no real way to suddenly grow your eyebrows in a single night.
But these methods discussed above are highly effective, safe, and show great results, even in a span as short as a few days.
Until then, avoid plucking your brows too much and, as with every beauty endeavor, take care of your diet and mental health.
