I have been tinting my eyelashes for 30 years. Recently I have noticed that it no longer works. It doesn't seem to absorb into the lashes. This applies to professional and home tinting and across a variety of brands. What has happened to my eyelashes? Could menopause do this! Any others with this experience ??

Well, none that are good enough to still work on me, but I used to use Tana.

Have you tried the "28 Day Mascara"? My lashes don't look much thicker when I first apply it, but they look better after I apply my mascara. It lasts (for me) for about two weeks or so before I need to reapply it, and it's much better than the Roux product I used for years. You can get if off Amazon.com.

The Roux product is really not that great. I can't imagine a "real" salon using that product.

I buy Combinal from Cosmo Prof. It is also commonly used in salons (Canada.)

Is it possible that you have old/expired (not effective) developer?

I believe this could be due to the same reason grey or platinum blonde hair cannot hold colour very well when dyed: the eyelashes no longer have the right amount of pigment for dye to hold onto. The result is colour that shows up poorly, or washes out after a few days.

As we age, the melanin in our bodies naturally depletes; our eyelashes, eyebrows, and other hair are not excluded.

What you will need to do it "re-pigment" your eyelashes before applying the normal eyelash tint, by applying filler first. Our hair is composed of three primary colours: blue, red, and yellow. For example, if you want your eyelashes to be dark-brown, you will need to apply red filler first prior to application of the tint.

I do not know if there are any brands that sell fillers designed for eyelashes or eyebrows. For head hair, there are many companies, but I strongly advise against applying filler designed for hair. If anybody knows of a company though, please share. Smile

A final resort would be to apply the tint twice in order for the second round of tint to grab onto any pigment deposited by the first round of tinting. Colour will still wash out, but after several months, it will start holding on a little better and stop fading as fast.

Great post, Foxglove! I'm going to be using the 28-day Mascara this Spring and may look into the primers you speak of. I suspect that I might have problems with the tint staying because my head hair doesn't hold color very well - I stick to blond because that's where it ends up eventually, regardless of how brown it is the day after coloring. I would love to have rich, chocolately dark brown hair but sadly, it will never be.
