Everyone wishes for fuller and perfect eyebrows – but sometimes it’s just not the case. If your clients come in with thin to no eyebrows, it could be due to a number of reasons.

So what can you do to solve this issue? “Make sure the salt you are ingesting is properly iodized, or add it as a supplement if you think you have a sluggish thyroid.”
