So yesterday I went to re-apply some eyeliner and noticed hair growing over my new tattooed eyebrows, I have like 4 eyebrow hairs going in, and they are thick dark brown like the rest! I cheered (silently of course, I was at work) and was so excited I e-mailed my mom "MY CATERPILLERS ARE GROWING BACK!!" Definitely cool to see the hairs coming back in. Luckily though if those hairs decide to fall back out, theres a lovely tattoo underneath it. But That kind of made my day yesterday!!

haha thank you, I am enjoying my eyebrowed days! I was drawing mine on, but I think either I bought the wrong eyebrow pencil or I sweat WAY to much, because I had to re-draw it on like 3 or 4 times a day, not including touch ups. I'm glad I got the tattoo to help with that problem, but of course 2 weeks after the tattoo, they start growing in! I know they could just fall back out, so Im not going to get WAY to excited, but its hard to not feel some excitement for those baby hairs!!

I do the same thing, I think my fingers move faster than my brain when Im typing, lol

Girl go ahead and get overly excited. You know that they may fall out but right now REJOICE! You have every right to. You have been through a lot so give yourself a break. That's one thing that I learned. Be realistic but don't let being realistic make you feel like only being halfway excited. Life is too short not to celebrate to the full anything that brings us joy. I used an eyebrow pencil to fill in my bald spot in the middle of my head and talk about sweating on hot summer days. LOL. It made my situation worse. I learned my lesson. Enjoy the hairs while they are there and thank them for the joy they gave if they fall out :-)

I just watched Michelle Chapman's video on Alopecia Awareness..don't know if you can open it from here or not, but she talks about the tattooing stimulating the area, and resulting in some hair growth..and I thought of your post here..Hope you can see the video. It's a great video for ppl who dont know what it is.

Trish - Yeah I have a good amount of re-growth, but it has been itching like crazy, so I had my boyfriend shave it down for me last night with the shortest guard on it. The itchiness seemed to just go right away, its really odd!

Diana - I will be sure to check that video out, because my eyebrows are growing like crazy now! Im missing the tail of my left one, but thats it!
