Some on another thread said it filled in hairs for them. Wondering if anyone here tried it with success (or no success)

I never had much for eyebrows, always sparse. Lucia did a little bit with one bottle but nothing remarkable. Better with lashes.

I have been using the Ardell on mine for the past month and it has really helped thicken them up. Also I occasionally dot on the castor oil. Mine on one side fell out a little after an IPL treatment that got too close to the top of one eyebrow. Seems to be doing the trick.

I agree with the previous post...try Ardell. If you are lucky, you may be able to still find it 50% off at CVS. If you can't find it, try rubbing some cold-pressed Castor Oil on them twice a day (its listed as an ingredient on either the Lucia or Ardell-I can't remember which one!)

What is Ardell and does it really work? Thanks. Very Happy

I read in magazines that the rogaine does work but that it'll make your brows look worse before getting better.

I couldn't find the ardell or lucia so I'm trying the mavala double lash which seems to help the shorter hairs grow, but doesn't really help with new growth. I've been using it about 2-3 weeks now.

Wendy,

I would be careful using Rogaine on your brows. From what I understand once you start using Rogaine you have to continue forever. Where it is designed for the hair on ones head I would be concerned after I stopped using it the brows would be thinner then when I began.

I also love the Ardell for my brows. My brows thinned considerably over the years (shorter on ends). My brows are thicker and darker using the Ardell faithfully. I use the Ardell during the day and Lucia at bedtime.

I would say don't do it. I looked up Minoxidil, which is the active ingredient in Rogaine.

It is very important that you use this medicine only as directed. Do not use more of it and do not use it more often than your doctor ordered. To do so may increase the chance of it being absorbed through the skin. For the same reason, do not apply minoxidil to other parts of your body. Absorption into the body may affect the heart and blood vessels and cause unwanted effects.

Do not use any other skin products on the same skin area on which you use minoxidil. Hair coloring, hair permanents, and hair relaxers may be used during minoxidil therapy as long as the scalp is washed just before applying the hair coloring, permanent, or relaxer. Minoxidil should not be used 24 hours before and after the hair treatment procedure. Be sure to not double your doses of minoxidil to make up for any missed doses.

To apply minoxidil solution:

Make sure your hair and scalp are completely dry before applying this medicine.
Apply the amount prescribed to the area of the scalp being treated, beginning in the center of the area. Follow your doctor's instructions on how to apply the solution, using the applicator provided.
Do not shampoo your hair for 4 hours after applying minoxidil.
Immediately after using this medicine, wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.
Do not use a hairdryer to dry the scalp after you apply minoxidil solution. Blowing with a hairdryer on the scalp may make the treatment less effective.
Allow the minoxidil to completely dry for 2 to 4 hours after applying it, including before going to bed. Minoxidil can stain clothing, hats, or bed linen if your hair or scalp is not fully dry after using the medicine.
Avoid transferring the medicine while wet to other parts of the body. This can occur if the medicine gets on your pillowcase or bed linens or if your hands are not washed after applying minoxidil.
If your scalp becomes abraded, irritated, or sunburned, check with your doctor before applying minoxidil.

Keep this medicine away from the eyes, nose, and mouth . If you should accidentally get some in your eyes, nose, or mouth, flush the area thoroughly with cool tap water. If you are using the pump spray, be careful not to breathe in the spray.
