    What do you do when you lose your eyebrows?

    I cannot for the life of me "draw on" eyebrows. Has anyone ever used any specific product or used eyebrows that are applied with a glue? I'm not interested in the tattoo kind, but i saw a type of eyebrow at headcovers.com and wondered if they were any good.

      I never lost all of my eyebrows but my mom did and she just used to draw hers on and I knew of people having their eyebrows tattooed on. Hope this helps!

      I lost much of my eyebrows, and went to a good make-up artist to learn how to create brows for myself.

      ACS has a no-cost Look Good Feel Better program that teaches make-up techniques to help us feel human (and provides lots of free makeup). My cosmetologist (Donna - I love you!) enabled me to look in the mirror and not see a cancer face.

      Call your local American Cancer Society to see if they have the program. Otherwise, go to a salon and ask for help. Often, for cancer patients, they'll be glad to give you a few quick tips for free.

      Good luck, and know they'll grow back!

      I actually attended a session of Look Good Feel Better. I was really disappointed. I had a lot of anxiety going in and i specifically wanted to learn how to do my own eyebrows. Didn't happen. I've been faking my through it --watched a bunch of videos, got all the tips about placement but when it comes to the actual end result i'm not happy at all. That's why i was wondering if anyone has tried the products i mentioned earlier. An alternative to drawing them on.

      The first person I met with from Look Good Feel Better didn't help me at all. I chanced on the second representative (for a slightly different region), because she works at the salon where I get my hair done. I commented to my stylist that I had to go somewhere fancy, and didn't have a clue what to do with my eyes, and she dragged me over to Donna, who took care of me on the spot (no charge.) There was no comparison between the 2 cosmetologists.

      I don't know about the other products, but see if your insurance will cover any of them, and give them a try. Then you can report back, and help lots of other people with your info.

      Good luck!

      I didn't lose all mine so was able to draw them on fairly easily and wore lots of liner and mascara on my 10 eyelashes. I found a website for temporary tattoo eyebrows, got some just in case but didn't use them since I could tell where to draw
      It was my intention to try the temp. tattoo ones but never completely lost them all.
