Full Answer

Over-plucking the eyebrows can cause the hair to eventually fall out and make it difficult for it to grow back. When over-plucking occurs, it is best to let the eyebrows grow for roughly six weeks before attempting to shape and pluck them again. For severely over-plucked eyebrows, New Health Guide suggests using natural remedies such as rubbing petroleum jelly or castor oil on the brows to help stimulate hair growth.
