We pull our lashes, and pull our lashes, and become deeply anxious
that our eyelashes won’t grow back.
We lay at night feeling a twisted pit of urgency in our stomach,
hoping praying and willing the regrowth.
But let’s be honest, it’s probably going to cycle around again.
Pulling. Hoping. Willing.
I don’t say that out of discouragement.
There are people that have been able to break the cycle.
But for those who haven’t yet….the question remains.
Do eyelashes grow back?
I’m only going to touch on my own experience with eyelash regrowth
because that’s all I know firsthand. I like firsthand accounts.
Talking about anyone else’s reported experiences is like playing a game of telephone,
and we all know how that goes.
I pulled my eyelashes. I willed them to grow. I pulled my eyelashes.
I stayed up at night worrying that they wouldn’t grow. They did. I pulled my eyelashes.
At the time I write this, I have pulled my eyelashes for 20 years. Yes.
My eyelashes grew back.
I will say, that after so so so many cycles through regrowth,
the eyelashes do not regenerate as quickly as they once did.
More recently, over the last few years, the hair has grown back
but the growth seems stunted. Albeit hard to explain, the individual eyelash tendrils
lost their shape and texture, like they are too thick and do not taper off at the tips.
But then all the sudden 8 or 9 months ago,
my eyelashes actually did grow and were perfectly formed.
I found that to be very interesting because after many cycles of having
strange looking regrowth, a very nice looking set filled in!
That is. Until I pulled them. In my sleep.
But! The main point is…
Eyelashes grow back.
Do not lose hope. Our bodies can be so amazingly resilient.
Remove all concern about whether or not they will grow, and demand them to grow.
Demand the resilience!
Have you ever experienced different cycles of weirdly shaped eyelash regrowth??
Comment and let me know!!
