Everybody wants to keep their hair during chemotherapy, but the reality is that it’s simply not always possible. Some people lose it and some don’t, and even if you use a cooling cap to freeze your scalp during chemo, your hair can still fall out. A lot depends on the person and how much chemotherapy you have to undergo.
The same is likely true of your eyebrows and eyelashes. Not everyone can manage to keep them.
However, there are some products on the market to help you keep those eyebrow and eyelash hairs attached. And while they may not work for everyone, they’re certainly worth a try. The results may surprise you.
Audrey, who runs the vlog cancerwithasmile, was not able to keep her hair during chemotherapy, but she tried Talika Lipocils eyebrow gel, which a friend recommended for her eyebrows and eyelashes. She used it at least twice a day for the entire time she was going through chemotherapy, and she’s happy to have retained her eyelashes and most of her brows!
Check out the video below to see the product Audrey used, learn how to apply it, and hopefully catch some of her infectious attitude!
