You think eye lash growth is significant enough when you're talking about hairs on peoples heads.

Would you rather them not try? They're obviously gonna go about it differently when using it on the head rather than lashes

be aware that Latisse can only work if a hair follicle is present. Just like popular treatments Rogaine and Propecia, Latisse “only works on areas with hair growth. [It] does not create new hairs in bald areas,” explains New York oculoplastic surgeon Joseph Eviatar.
