I've been growing in my eyebrows-thanks to miss j's advice. But I've plucked for years and they are growing in patchy. I read something about using rogaine for overpluck--anyone tried this?

I've never tried rogaine but yes too much plucking can make hair grow in patches. I used to pluck mine a lot in the 80s and I have to use an eye brow pencil to out line mine today.

Yes, overplucking weakens the follicle if you've been doing it for years.
Maybe Latisse would work? Or an eyebrow hair transplant if you've lost too much.
Just be careful, you don't want to end up looking like Frida Kahlo!

Cosmetic tattoo can fill in if they don't grow back in.

About 2 years ago I went to a local "threading" salon. The threader was over-zealous and took too much (brows closest to bridge of nose). They have NEVER grown back. I think she must have permanently damaged the follicle.

Are you sure? It's quite improbable that a single session would cause permanent damage, and it's not even electrolysis.
I've been contouring mine for 10 years and they keep growing back. If only I could be so lucky.

Anastasia makes a brow regrowth formula that has worked quite well for some people I know. I also swear by their brow grooming kit, I love it.

Yes, I'm sure. I had plenty of eyebrows prior to the threading, and very sparse in certain areas (too short from bridge inward)immediately afterwards. They never grew back, but a hair or two.

I talked to an esthetician and she said it was possible, but she's not a doc of course. It was too immediate to have been anything else.

I'll give you the address if you are ever in ATL and you can go get yours permanently "groomed" at the same threading salon if you like. Maybe they accidentally discovered a new fix for brow over-growth.

Haha. Maybe they did. I used to go overboard with mine, but not anymore. I now prefer a fuller look. Plus, I got lazy. I do the minimum for maintenance. My derm wants to laser them, but I'm holding off on that. I'm fine with tweezing for now, and my taste might change in the future.

kk25, plucking for 10 years, growing in for 4-5 months. I'm surprised to see any of them growing back after hearing dcnga's story. but I'm part wolf man myself. Anastasia or Latisse sound promising. better than dipping a q-tip in rogain and smearing it around my eyebrow.

thanks barbiegirl, Anastasia sounds like what I need:

"Unlike other eyebrow regrowth products on the market that claim to work in a few months, Brow Enhancing Serum is clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as 4-6 weeks! An easy-to-use applicator allows the non-greasy formula to glide on smooth without tugging or pulling and is gentle enough to be used every day. Brow Enhancing Serum is not harmful to the eyes or the surrounding skin area, plus as an added bonus, it also slows down excess hair loss, which results in a healthier fuller-looking brow."

they don't always grow back BeBe. Where I have plucked for years, I don't have to pluck at all anymore. I really hardly every do it now, just no hair there. My sister doesn't have this issue, but my other sister way overplucked in the 80s and is now trying to get her brows to grow back. She's using MD Lash Factor, which I was using for some time, and now I'm using Latisse on lashes and put the extra on the brows. Latisse is paraben and fragrance free.
