Is there anything I can do/use to make my eyebrows grow?

I had my eyebrows shaped & tinted and the girl pencilled one of brows to show me what it should look like. The difference was amazing, my face looked different (in a good way!) and I looked younger than my 41 years. She said I should try and let them grow or get something called Stroke by Stroke but it's very expensive. I wouldn't mind letting them grow but they don't really! I'm quite fair and my eyebrows are really light and sparse. And since I entered my 40s they don't seem to be growing that much at all.
So is there anything I can do to help them grow? Or should I start saving for a super duper treatment?

no magic hair growth potion except that Regaine stuff, sorry.

just draw them on like she did.

I have an old tube of rapidlash that I've been putting on my eyebrows at night and its definitely made them grow faster.

Rapid row. It's £35 but works. Olive oil or Vaseline good too

Do NOT buy products that will make the hair you managed to grow fall out when you stop using them.

Castor oil! It's cheap, and easy to buy off amazon. Also on Amazon buy some disposable clean mascara wands (will likely be £1-2) to apply the oil, which is sticky. I did this every night before my wedding and have very thick brows (will admit they are naturally thick and I've not ever plucked, only threaded).

What would happen if you put rapidlash on your eyebrows?

Rapidbrow works, albeit, er, slowly.

I second castor oil.

ImperialBlether Sat 12-Mar-16 18:22:23

TheClick, why did you use castor oil if your eyebrows were already thick?

Thanks, will try out the cheaper castor oil option first!

Latisse works for brows. I've only used it for lashes but plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest it works on brows...

RapidBrow has made my eyebrows grow really well, after an overzealous plucking at the salon.

I've always had less hair on my left eyebrow than my right, but recently I started taking a skin, hair and nails vitamin supplement and weirdly, the left eyebrow has had more hair growth since!

I've used Rapid Lash on my eyebrows, on a less dense area. It worked really well. Brill on lashes too as I found tubing mascara ruined my lashes and left sparse areas.

Cheapest place I found it was Amazon.

Castor oil.

I also say 'castor oil' grin

ImperialBletherI wanted really thick ones so then when I got them threaded, my beautician would have enough hair to take away to give me a nice shape, while also keeping them thick, does that make sense

Rapid brow is amazing stuff

It's made mine go from nothing to noticeable brows in 3 months
