Make-up & ideas for eyebrows & lashes
There is a wide variety of make-up and products available to help you have very realistic or flamboyant and creative eyebrows and lashes. Even if you are completely hair-free without a single hair there is something for everyone.
It really is worth taking some time to explore ways to re-create brows and lashes. Many women have told us that, despite having a great wig or headscarf, it was the lack of eyebrows and lashes that revealed their hair loss and cancer treatment and so in turn, took away their privacy.
At Cancer Hair Care we have spent many hours trying and testing different products, techniques and ideas that we hope will inspire you to spend some time experimenting with different looks and new ideas.
Here in this section we will share with you some of the tips and ideas not only from our Cancer Hair Care Specialist Hair Loss Advisors, but also the thousands of women who share their experiences with us so that we can support you.
Tips on what to do when eyebrows and lashes start to fall out
It can be very distressing when hair starts to fall out, so having some idea of what to expect and ways to manage can offer real support and confidence.
It is fair to say that the majority of people experience their lashes and eyebrow hairs coming out in stages rather then all at once. Unfortunately, this does mean that hairs can annoyingly fall out at anytime and any place.
Here are some helpful tips:
Carry a small mirror in your bag so that when you get the ’falling hair’ fear you can go somewhere private and take a look
When you apply or remove make-up it is okay to gently ease out a hair that is on the move. Remember this hair will fall out any way
Practice using make-up to create an eyebrow before your hair falls out. Choose a shade that is not too dark and complements a wig if you have bought one
Keep your brow and lash make up in your bag so you are ready to create or touch up when needed
Remember that your lashes and brows will grow back
Attend a make-up session to learn new techniques
You don’t have to wear make-up, you may feel just fine being beautifully bare
