5 Common Causes of Eyebrow Loss

Hair loss is always dismaying, no matter where it happens—and it doesn’t always happen in the same place. Most often, we think of hair loss in terms of the scalp, but it can also happen on the face. In particular, men and women alike can struggle with eyebrows that thin, shed, and bald—leaving a feeling of self-consciousness behind. The question is, what actually causes eyebrows to get thin—and what can be done to prevent it?

The Main Causes of Eyebrow Loss

There are a few main reasons why eyebrows begin to bald.

Over-Plucking. Many of us like to keep our eyebrows looking tidy, using tweezers to remove unruly hairs—but remember: It takes weeks for a single hair to grow back. If you notice that your eyebrows are looking a little depleted, your first thought should be as to whether or not you’ve gone a little overboard in your grooming. Easy does it!

Poor Nutrition. Any nutrient deficiency can ultimately lead to hair loss—and if your eyebrow hairs are shedding rapidly, you might check to ensure that you are consuming ample amounts of iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D, and biotin. Come see us at Mane Image to ask about supplements!

Hypothyroidism. Anything that impacts the hormones can ultimately impact hair growth, and thyroid disease more than fits this description. If you have hypothyroidism, it means your body is under-producing some of its necessary hormones. This can manifest in eyebrow and hair loss, and is something you’ll want to get diagnosed and treated by a physician ASAP.

Eczema. Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a medical condition that leads to red, swollen skin and—in many cases—hair loss. This might include thinning eyebrows. This is far from uncommon; in fact, more than 20 percent of us will deal with eczema at some point in our life. If you experience any of the symptoms of this condition, make an appointment with a dermatologist. Topical treatments can help you get the thing licked!

Alopecia Areata. This is an autoimmune disease that’s sometimes called spot baldness—so named because it can lead to hair loss in random places on the body, including, sometimes, the eyebrows. This is not really a common condition, but if it is something you think you’re dealing with, come see us at Mane Image to talk about solutions.
