I have a few eyebrow hairs that love to go in all different directions throughout the day. I’ve tried brushing a clear mascara on them, but that didn’t control them. I’ve tried hair gel, too, but they just laughed at that. I found a Prestige brow gel that worked okay, but there were two problems: it was the color gel that actually locked the brow hairs in place and that gel was hard to get a natural look with, and after maybe a month it started smelling funny so I felt I had to toss it – who knew what bacterial infestation might be brewing in there.
