    Anyone know of any product which makes brows and lashes grow?


    Someone said castor oil? Does it work?

    Boots sell no7 product for lashes 16 but I have not bought it...

    I have found a lady who has been recommended to me does HD brows I'm sticking with her regards eyebrows keeping regular appointments and not plucking them at all that is hard.....
    Otherwise have you thought about microblading ?

    don't fancy microblading as I don't like the harsh effect when its done, even though it softens

    I may buy the no7 item as they have no7 products on offer in boots.

    Hair Transplant is the best option for it. Via hair transplant you will get fast results with safe treatment.

    If you're interesting in some natural products or everyday ingredients that you can use to speed up your brows growing here they are:
    - olive oil
    - coconut oil
    - aloe vera gel
    - or castor oil.

    I never use any of this, but this is what I heard from my friends. I hope you'll find some of this ingredients helpful.

    I've heard about caster oil helping brows to grow and went ahead and bought a bottle when my mum reported it helping her brows...but it did nothing for me. Only left my skin shiney. I think maybe it works for some but not for everyone.


    I'm yet to find anything that works but keeping things in check with threading helps as I can then at least see more obviously the spaces I need to draw in.

    I'm currently experimenting with a mixture of castor oil and coconut oil daily and massaging the eyebrows for 5 minutes after doing that, in a clockwise direction.

    Wonder if that's the difference between the way your mother and yourself applied it? Maybe she massaged it in and you just dabbed a bit on and that was that?

    Time will tell whether it works or no.

    It shouldn't look harsh after the healing time, unless that's what's been specifically asked for.

    If you can spare the time for a vlog on this, a well respected beauty vlogger Nadine Baggot (think she's in her 40s or 50s so is very straight talking and honest and not swayed by brands as some of the newbie vloggers can be) she had this done and did report back on how it works.

    The only thing I'd say would be check your therapists previous clients on this- if they are wonky or done badly it can really be a pain in the X to correct- microblading is not forever, but it is quite pricey and you want to get what you paid for.
