i am losing tons of hair everywhere from stress because i was just diagnosed with diabetes. so much in fact that even my eyebrows are losing tons of hair and they are getting ugly. is there any way to regrow eyebrow hair? any cream or medicine i can take for it?
First thing, you got to control the stress.
I know all about losing hair from stress and anger attacks.
I had a relative killed by a drunk driver.
Your hair might grow back if you stop with the stress.
You just got to be calm and relax.
When you feel stressed, you got to emmerce yourself.
Just walk it off. Go in the sun.
What I realized, stress comes from obsessive thoughts.
This will seem like an oversimplification.
When you have an obsessive thought. Just don't entertain it.
Obsessive thoughts are a habit that we make.
You have to practice to leave off of them.
Do not let them in and sit with them
Remember, when obsessive thoughts come into your mind you are NOT at the mercy of them.
That is the key.
Rogaine and Retin A have been proven to help eyebrow hair growth. I have not used Rogaine, but I use Retin A all the time, and have for years. Since it gets on my brows, I have noticed it does make them thicker. You can do a web search and read up on it.
You can use these togther or seperate. You can use the cheaper store brand of Rogaine and try that. Use the men's version, it's a bit stronger. Just be careful and keep it out of your eyes of course.
I still have eyebrows but they are pretty pathetic and need pencilling in. I think I have lost hair due to plucking and maybe my hairloss (scalp) due to iron deficiency. They just dont seem to grow anymore. I read on the net that brushing them with a toothbrush may stimulate the folicle into regrowth. Who knows, Im gonna give it a try.

To WVPumkin: I've read about castor oil before but you're the first, first person account! How did you apply it and how long did it take to see new growth? I'm trying Rogaine but I'm really freaked out that I ruined my eyebrows forever. I tweezed the top which I so knew better than to do... (P.S. This is my first post so I'm not sure I'm doing this right.)

I stupidly plucked mine too much as I got teased a lot at school. Now they are bushy but thin and just a couple of hairs falling out can leave a gap. I looked into transplant and regaine. Transplant was too expensive, regaine or rogaine had the affect of them falling out quicker before regrowth apparantly. I now take multi vitamins in the morning and vitamin b at night. It seems to help.
