Q: Can I color my eyebrows?
A: Yes. The hair of your eyebrows is hair just like on any other part of your body - including your head. It can be colored by the same products you use to change your hair color. The hair of the eyebrows is usually fairly close to the hair of the head in texture.
Applying color to the eyebrows must be done carefully to minimize the staining of the skin underneath, which will be readily apparent. Coloring the eyebrows should always been done using a small brush applicator to give you better targeting and control. A small toothbrush is ideal for this purpose.
If in coloring your eyebrows it is necessary to lighten the facial hair first, DO NOT use the bleaching agent/peroxide combination that is commonly used in highlighting or lightening the hair of the scalp. Most of these hair lighteners are designed to be used "off the scalp" with foils or through a highlighting cap.
The chemicals in these products are very strong and will cause burns if you get them on the sensitive skin of your face. Instead, use the milder bleaching kits designed for lightening facial hair in women. The process will probably take longer, but it is much safer for you.
Finally, be sure to purchase color stain remover from your local beauty supply store. This product is designed to remove color stains from skins caused by dripping or accidental misapplication, and will not remove the color from the hair. In some cases, color stains can last several days, through repeated washings depending on the color being used.
