I have been using Lumigan for probably close to a year now. I can't even say how much better my lashes are because it has been so long that I don't remember. I am sure they are better and longer than before I used it, but it has been too darn long to really know. I use every other day and I am going to cut back and see what happens. I have VERY purple/red lids that must be from this, and I hate it so much. But I hate puny lashes too. I am thinking of trying either Careprost or RapidLash next. Can't get Lumigan anymore, so I'm not sure which one to try. Does anyone get less irritation with either one?

It isn't hard to get your own perming kit at home at all. Do a search on Ebay and you will see!

As for the RapidLash, I have the darkening around my lids as well and can't stand it. I also noticed that there is a slight swelling where it is darkened as well. Does anyone else have this? I love how it has effected my lashes and am loving the effect. So I have cut it down to every other night. They haven't been growing as lush and a few have fallen out but I want my huge lashes!

Can we start a post about possible eyelash shedding after 4 months of using Latisse or Lumigan? We all know the product works, now we just need to get optimum results regarding MAINTANANCE with minimal shedding etc. Also, if there are long term issues with changes to eyelashes in terms of density and quantity after the 4 month period such as do lashes revert back to even less than one had before. Also, if someone knowledgeable could look at eyelash growth cycles and figure out optimal application to KEEP the lashes their best using what is known about eyelash cycles.This will be a serious issue very soon as we all move beyond our fourth month of use.

Hi
I just read your post about starting a new post about after the 4th month of using Latisse the eyelashes shed or stop growing.
I thought I was the one.
I would love hear from others with the same experience.

I purchased my first bottle of generic Latisse from Internationaldrugmart online in June 2016. I was using it daily for the first 5 or so months but now I use it twice a week to maintain growth. Progress is SLOW, so don't complain when you don't see results in a few weeks -- it took over 4 months for me to see noticeable growth. Of course, progress will be different for everyone. The important part of this journey is to be REASONABLE with your expectations.

I quite using Careprost bc of the issues. I use Revitalash every couple of days followed by Ardell lash every night. Slows down the shedding cycle, which occurs naturally anyway and makes the remaining stronger and fuller. This seems to works just as well without the redness and the crazy weird growth that I used to have.

I think I would be afraid to perm my eyelashes.
What happens if you do get perm solution in your eye??

I'm afraid to do anything that could harm my vision,one of my eyes has much weaker vision-I probably need surgery or to see a eye specialist-the eye doctor I saw last was just an idiot and really unhelpful and gave me wrong advice.
(the eye doctor I need to see, the wait is 4 or 5 months).

For long lashes, I find the Blinc heated lash curler works very well and it has a special guard on it. I bought it at EDS a while ago.

I had someone perm them for me at a salon, and dye them. I liked it okay, it is just that the top over curled and the bottom lashes permed up a little too which was weird. I wouldn't do it again.
I dye my own all the time, no issue.

I have used Latisse and it really work, but can be very irritating to your eyelid. I would NOT recommend doing a perm to your lash, it is so bad and will end up loosing lashes.
