@thumpurr:  I had a similar issue and ended up getting Latisse. I don’t think you’re supposed to use it on your brows but I did and it worked like a charm! I wear my eyebrows in a really natural shape, and once they were botched, Latisse was a godsend after I tried a million products and natural remedies (including the serum from Sephora and a reeeeeeally expensive product called Nutraluxe).

@MUAbride2be:  Not sure specifically, but I asked about it when trying to deal with my permanent eyebrow loss. Something about the way the active medicinals interact with female hormones. My doc and derm both said the same thing at the time. Then when I worked in cosmetics, we were advised the same thing. Side of the box says not to use it on women as well. It’s possible they’ve since developed something women can use, but standard rogaine is not designed for women. 

 

I found this on web MD “Product labeling recommends that women only use the 2% concentration of minoxidil, not 5%, because the FDA has not approved use of the higher concentration in women.”

Maybe that’s the difference between the men and womens version? :/

@HappySky7:  there is a difference, the women’s version is only 2%. It’s not available in Canada as far as I know, but it’s available in the States for sure.

I agree about massaging them. Do this with the castor oil daily because it stimulates blood flow and keeps the hair follicles working. I cut my hair about 6 months ago and hated it so I massaged in coconut oil on a regular basis and I swear it’s been growing back so much faster!

@thumpurr:  Threading is a technique that is an alternative to plucking.  I’ve had it done a few times and it kind of pinches but is less painful than waxing or plucking. Basically you catch the hair between two pieces of string, tug, and remove it that way.

This wiki article probably explains it better than I am

Ugh, yea having to regrow your brows is annoying. I overplucked during my high school years (not ridiculously thin) and now that I like fuller brows, it was hard and annoying not to plucky the stubby hairs that tried to grow back, not to mention it was sparse.

I used a lash growth serum called fLash and now I love my brows 🙂
Since the serum is used for your lashes (so close to your eye), it should be okay for sensitive skin, but you never know until you try I guess. I would imagine that the other lash serums should work for brows as well such as Lilash. But do a bit of research on it first.

That’s what worked for me anyway. Takes patience though, but totally paid off. Plus it worked for my eyelashes too 🙂 Using it every night, I noticed a different in about 4-6 weeks?

Keep in mind that it will only work if the hair root exists. My eyebrows are shorter than I’d like, but unfortunately since no hair ever existed where I wanted them to end, the serum had nothing to grab onto. If that makes sense.

I had some luck with rimmel lash serum on my brows (I used a spoolie brush for it, salvaged from a mascara container). but sometimes I wonder if the serum actuallly did anything, or if it was becuase I was brushing and conditioning my brows twice a day. like, the brush was helping to exfoliate and stimulate the skin in that area? just a theory.
