I started using Rogaine about a month ago to thicken and lengthen my aging eyebrows. It had been a slow start. Current guidelines recommend using Rogaine twice a day. This meant applying Rogaine foam with a Q- tipa fter my morning shower and before I go to sleep at night.. Sounds simple, but it meant adding two more steps to my standard morning and nighttime routine. At first I applied the foam to the skinny “tail” areas.
I have to admit that in the first few weeks I usually mised one of the two daily applictions. Although I am pretty motivated to try out new beauty tools, I also knew that it would be 1-2 months before I would see any results. I love the instant results of a mask or peel and this was very different. After a rocky two week start, I finally got into a steady routinue. I also started to apply it in an wider area– above and below my brows and closer to my eyes.
Using Rogaine for My Brows
The foam tingled a bit which actually felt encourging.Then I had heard that some people find Rogaine causes itching, redness and peeling– and I hoped the little tingle was not a sign of problems to come. Happily even the little tingle went away. Now I just need to be patient– and realistic.
I’ve dreamed of full Audrey Hepburn brows but in fact the shape of brows depends more on the shape than the fullness. I needed to accept the fact that the shape of a brow depends on the shape of the brow bone, the eye socket , the muscles in the area and the way the brow hairs naturally grow. Knowing this, I will be happy to fill in my bald spot and thicken the tails. I just need to wait it out.
