      Don't know why, but I had the same situation. Lost my hair everywhere (head and body) except eyebrows and eyelashes after first chemo treatment. Shortly after finishes chemo, when that was already started to grow back, I started losing my eyebrows and eyelashes. After a few days though that stopped and I never did completely lose my eyebrows/lashes and now they seem to be back to normal.

      The same thing happened to me. My hair starting coming out about 20 days after my first Chemo treatment. After my last of 6 Chemo's, my hair started growing back. I still had about 30% of my eyebrows and eyelashes. But now I am 4 weeks out of Chemo and all of a sudden the rest of my eyebrows and eyelashes just fell out. I thought I managed to keep them. The hair on my head is growing....hopefully the rest will come back soon. Strange ???? Good Luck

      Same thing happened to me! I lost my eyebrows (not all) very last, weeks later! It happens. And hair grows back! Good luck to you.
