Re: Brows and lashes

Hi Lonamcnab47, I've had eyelash extensions before and they looked great, although they can pull out your own lashes too. Unfortunately at the moment my eyelashes are so sparse it would look silly. Will just have to persevere until they start growing back. Good luck holding on to yours x

Re: Brows and lashes

Have just been told about the eyelash extensions. They are OK if you still have some. They can be damaging to lashes but if you don't have many any way maybe worth a try ?

That's brilliant! Hope I am the same.

Re: Brows and lashes

Have heard about eyelash extensions too. Don't think I could manage the faff of sticky on ones.

Scarletbea, that's brilliant. I'm sure you're glad to hold on to them. Hope you continue to do so! Good luck with your last T.
I tried the stick on false eyelash strips. Not very successful lol

Re: Brows and lashes

Hi, my head hair fell after the second FEC, but now after 3 FECs and 2 Ts I still have my eyebrows and eye lashes.

I 'blame' it on genetics, hehe, good strong hairs Smiley Wink

Re: Brows and lashes

No worries - feel Floppy at the moment!

 

Had my last infusion of Taxotere around 8 weeks ago. I've been oiling my eyebrows and massaging them to encourage growth.

 

Eyelashes are pretty bad still but eyebrows are recovering.

Stupid autocorrect, meant Flopsy not Floppy 😳

Re: Brows and lashes

Floppy, when did you finish chemo? And how are your brows and lashes done since then? Did you use anything on lashes to encourage growth?
Sorry for all the questions, would love my lashes back lol

Re: Brows and lashes

I went through 6 cycles of FEC-T.

 

During the 3 T cycles I lost most of my eyebrows and eyelashes.

 

Oddly though, my hair which had been falling out on FEC began to grow again.

 

I did use a cold cap throughout.

Re: Brows and lashes

Hi. I'm on FEC-T also. Just 1 more T to go next week!!!! I found I had most of my eyebrows and eyelashes during FEC (a good 80%). However after 1st T, I did lose a lot more. After 2nd T I have now lost a good 60-70% of both 😪 Luckily I got semi permanent eyebrows before chemo (just the 1 session, I couldn't fit the top up in) so with that and the eyebrows I still have, I just pencil the rest in. I do really miss my longer eyelashes though. I do use eye pencil, eye shadow and then mascara on what lashes I have, but feel my eyes look wrong without my usual lashes. I bought fake eyelashes to try a few days ago, but haven't got round to trying. I'm meeting friends for lunch tomorrow, so might try them and let you know how I get on.
Good luck with your side effects of your treatment today x

Brows and lashes

On FEC-T chemo and just had my third treatment today. Have virtually no head hair now as decided to shave it as it was distressing me. My next three treatments will be the T part. My eyebrows and lashes still present, will they fall out too ? Anybody who has had same treatment ? Would appreciate your experience.
