Bleached brows have grown in popularity over the years due to their bold and edgy appearance. What began as a catwalk trend has now been adopted by many Hollywood A-listers. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Kendall Jenner, and others are among those who have been spotted wearing this eyebrow trend.
If you are feeling inspired to join the bandwagon of those that fancy having bleached eyebrows, it is advisable you seek a professional, as it can be very tricky and dangerous to bleach your brows at home.
Also, you will need to keep maintaining the bleached eyebrows – when you eventually do – as it requires some effort and care.
In this post, we will discuss some tips on how to maintain bleached eyebrows and keep them looking great at all times.
Maintaining Your Bleached Eyebrows
Because the skin on your brows will be more sensitive and the hair more brittle after bleaching, you simply need to be more careful about what you put on them. Extra care will go a long way.
To keep your brows and the skin around it in a healthy condition, it is advisable to follow these rules;
Using a gentle cleanser
When washing your face, use a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate your bleached eyebrows. Avoid using harsh scrubs or exfoliants that can damage the delicate hair and skin which by now will already be very sensitive.

Using A Brow Serum
Brow serums can help nourish and strengthen your bleached eyebrows to promote healthier, softer brow hair which would have become brittle and thin following bleaching. Look for serums that contain ingredients like biotin, panthenol, hyaluronic acid keratin, and peptides to help strengthen and rehydrate your eyebrow hair. We recommend you use brow serums for your bleached brow routine.
