Remedies For Sparse Eyebrows?
I'm an Asian female with incredibly sparse eyebrows. I have to brush them in everyday for them to even be visible and it's such a hassle becaues they virtually disappear in direct sunlight/pictures/water.

In this month's issue of Allure, there was a tip about applying Men's Extra Strength Rogaine with a Q-Tip to sparse eyebrows. What do you think?

I don't know... I would be very careful of putting anything near your eyes that is not made for the area. Seriously. I thought about dyeing my brows darker to match my hair and when I read the package insert careful it said not to because it can cause blindness! I know Rogaine is not hair color, but I still don't think it sounds very safe. We have a thread about thicker eyebrows. With a combination of castor oil and banning myself from the tweezers Mine have improved some. It's not too noticeable to anyone but myself though. And I use a brow powder with a brow powder brush when I want them darker.

I think it was Alex Kuczynski (NY Times writer and author of Beauty Junkies) who said that she tried this and ended up with a moustache. Be careful!

a necessary question to ask is: how much would u actually need to determine what can cause growth? it's so hard applying home remedies to solve problems or create solutions when one rarely ever knows the measured amount that's necessary to make a change.

how much castor oil did u need to help your brows, and what change did u see?

There was a thing on TV about what people were trying to do to get eyebrows back, and they mentioned rogaine. Theres this new thing from 'Model Co' (an aussie cosmetics brand) and its like an eyebrow pencil except its a quick drying gel with little hairs that look like eyebrow hairs and if you put the gel on them it looks like real eyebrows. Its pretty cool!

DON'T PUT ROGAINE ON YOUR EYELASHES!!!! The results are totally unpredictable- they don't just grow back neatly!

Yes, I've seen those ModelCo eyebrow gel pens. I'm thinking of getting it (it's about $30). The consistency is like a sticky gel (not unlike lipgloss actually, but obviously less tacky) with the little hairs in it. I'm only worried about the little hairs falling out and landing on my cheek or something.

That sounds rather unlikely.

I just posted this in another thread.

Rogaine saved my brows. I overplucked and I did Rogaine. The Women's formula doesn't contain enough active ingredient to re-grow eyebrow hairs so you have to use the Extra Strength Men's formula.

Since the application is limited to a really small space, thusly you are not using a lot of product, the risk of 'side effects' is super low.

My derm said if I had results it was totally fine and that the little I was using wouldn't be harmful to me as a woman.

Worked for me and I would do it again in a second.

are you sure they didn't grow back simply because they've had a month to regrow on their own?

Yeah, I waited about six months for 'natural' re-growth but it just wasn't happening. After a month of Rogaine, it was soo much more hair than all of six months worth of growth.
