I am still on vinorelbine and Herceptin (and have been for 4 years and am not NED), so my hair is a bit like baby soft and poker straight, and only about 1/3 of the original thickess. My eyelashes used to be long and full. My eyebrows weren't great but I still missed them when they fell out.
So here are some things I've tried: A product called EyEnvy which slows the shedding and regrowth of eyebrows and particularly eyelashes letting them grow for longer, and thus fuller. It works like a hot da*n. It is only sold in spas, not online so you will have to call around. It seems like a huge price ($90) but the tube lasts 5 months if you use it sparingly, which is what they advise. Using it more than once a day is a waste of the product as it doesn't speed up regrowth. My eyelashes took 3 months to come in and I couldn't be more please. I had a
I used Latisse only for my eyebrows, and it did get them growing back. I now use EyEnvy to keep them going. Latisse kind of scares me. A woman I didn't know told me that I had gorgeous eyelashes, and she was jealous! Boy did I have good news for her!
I have used Rogaine, and I'm not sure it did anything much for my hair. It may have encouraged a bit of growth but not noticeably so I continue to look for solutions..
I am now trying an Aveda product that is based on the same principal as EyEnvy making the shedding process slower, so the hair appears fuller for longer. I haven't used it very long so am not sure yet whether it works. It is called Aveda's Invati Scalp Revitalizer. It is not cheap so I'm hoping it works....time will tell.
