Understanding the Source of Eyebrow Hair Loss

How can I get my eyebrows back?

As if losing hair on your head wasn’t enough, some may also notice to their dismay that eyebrows, one of the prominent features that influences how one looks, can also thin out or have bald patches. One may experience this for several reasons. 

Understanding the Source of Eyebrow Hair Loss

If one or both eyebrows show a bald spot or are thinning, it could be due to: 

  • Alopecia areata, the same autoimmune disease that is oftentimes responsible for scalp hair problems, can also affect your eyebrows. In this case, your immune system mistakenly targets and attacks your eyebrow follicles, causing those hairs to abruptly fall off making a bald patch.
  • Your body requires a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Since some of these nutrients sustain and influence hair growth, a lack of any of them could result in hair loss. For example, a deficiency of vitamins, B-12, D, iron, and/or omega-3 fatty acids could trigger hair loss, including in the eyebrows.
  • Underlying skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis can interfere with proper hair growth. Any type of dermatitis can block hair follicles from growing hair normally.
  • Excessive stress or anxiety are known to contribute to sudden hair loss. If you have recently experienced a traumatic event or major lifestyle change, this may be the root cause.
  • Overplucking can create minor trauma to the follicle, which can result in the hair no longer growing in that spot. 
  • As levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men start dwindling, generally around the age of 40, both genders may start to experience thinning of hair on the scalp and in the eyebrows.

Stop  worrying about your brows and take steps to take care of them! Here are some tips you can try :

  • Avoid regular plucking eyebrows as often as possible, because this not only causes eyebrow hair loss but can also cause ingrown hairs and infections.
  • Try including foods rich in protein, iron, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A,B12 D and C in your diet to promote good eyebrow hair growth. Diet including  fish, lean meat, lentils, green vegetables, beans, and dairy products contain all the essential nutrients and can help with hair problems.
  • Follow an excellent moisturizing routine for your skin everyday and make sure your eyebrows are well hydrated.
