Use Castor oil and rosemary oil for scanty brows
Castor oil thickens hair and rosemary oil activates hair growth
The portion nearest to the T-zone of one of my eyebrows has no hair. Everyone keeps pointing it out. Is it possible to grow hair in a very specific location? If yes, please tell me what to do. I hope the new hair growth will not look odd or different from the rest of the eyebrow.
These days, you can correct any beauty fault by visiting a cosmetologist. At home, however, I'd recommend soaking a cotton ball in warm water and dabbing it on the area with scanty hair growth. Follow with two drops of castor oil and one drop of rosemary oil. Apply this several times a day on the area that lacks hair. You may even leave it on overnight. Castor oil thickens hair and rosemary oil activates hair growth.
I recently tried to apply the cinnamon powder and honey recipe for pimples, but my skin felt like it was on fire. It burned so much. Please tell me what I did wrong? What is the correct quantity to apply?
The cinnamon honey mask does make skin burn a little; this helps to bring the infection caused by severe acne to the surface. You may slightly reduce the amount of cinnamon used, but this treatment is excellent for acne. Take 2 pinches of cinnamon powder and mix with 4 drops of honey. Apply the mix only on the acne. Keep on for 20 minutes. After you wash the mask off, apply a layer of aloe vera gel to calm and cool the skin down. Do this treatment every alternate day.
I have a lot of whiteheads on my chin. It's really embarrassing, as they can be clearly seen. I also have blackheads on my nose. Is there a natural way to remove them? Are the treatments the same?

First, clean skin with a warm, damp face cloth followed by an ice pack. Mix soda bicarbonate with rose water and apply on both the chin and nose. Scrub off after 10 minutes and follow with a warm honey mask. Done twice a week, you will see good results. This treatment applies for both white- and blackheads.
I have concerns with freckles, skin that does not glow, and frizzy hair. I can never walk out of my house without blow-drying my hair because of this last problem. Sometimes, I apply a mix of hibiscus, rice flour, honey and yoghurt. Other times, just avocado or aloe vera or even neem leaves. I keep the mask on for 30 minutes. Please advise.
For your issues with freckles and dull skin, apply a daily mask of strawberries, cream and honey thickly on the skin and leave on for one hour. Rinse with warm water and follow with a few splashes of cold water. For your frizzy hair, blend a banana with one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of walnut or almond powder. Apply a thin layer to your hair. Leave on for an hour. Rinse with warm water, followed by a final rinse using filtered water. Do this at least twice or thrice a week.
