Women have been known to spend hundreds of dollars trying to find a product that will create fuller, longer and thicker lashes and brows.

Joel Schlessinger MD reveals the causes of lash and brow hair loss.
In this article, author Janna Johnson O’Toole explains how the growth cycle affects the thickness and fullness of your lashes and brows. Interrupting this cycle can cause breakage and hair loss that contributes to a thin and sparse appearance.
Joel Schlessinger MD mentions several common practices such as tweezing and waxing that interrupt the growth cycle. These procedures can cause trauma to the hair follicles and halt growth resulting in bald patches and transparent brows and lashes.
While this issue is common for many women, there are several short term and long term steps you can take to re grow your brows and lashes.
Many dermatologists, including Joel Schlessinger MD, recommend hair growth products for thin lashes and brows.
To halt hair loss, Dr. Joel Schlessinger recommends applying a hair growth product. Latisse, a popular cosmetic product, has been shown to create lashes that are 25% longer and 106% fuller. Joel Schlessinger MD also recommends products such as Rogaine that include the active ingredient Minoxidil to stimulate growth.
You can also try several over the counter products to encourage a healthier and fuller appearance. Obagi ELASTILash Eyelash Solution conditions hair to prevent breakage and Jan Marini Lash Eyelash Conditioner protects lashes to encourage healthy renewal.
