It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

Eyebrow Hair Loss

Eyebrow Hair Loss

Hair loss can be upsetting, no matter if you’re losing the hair on your head – or your eyebrows. The truth is, it can be easy to take your eyebrows for granted. We don’t often notice the work they do in framing our facial features until they start thinning or falling out. If you are losing eyebrow hair, you aren’t alone. There are many potential causes for eyebrow hair loss, some of which are only temporary, and some of which are permanent.

External Factors

Conditions like psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and eczema are all inflammatory conditions. When inflammation occurs near the eyebrows, the skin is often itchy. Excess scratching and rubbing can damage the eyebrow follicles causing the hair to fall out. Hair loss related to these conditions tends to look more patchy but is often just temporary. An infected follicle or growths in the area, like moles or warts, can also impact eyebrow hair growth.

Internal Factors

Eyebrow hair loss can sometimes be indicative of an internal medical condition. Hair loss on the outer edges of the eyebrows is a common sign of an under-active thyroid. Under or overactive thyroid is typically a treatable condition, so if this is the cause, the hair will likely grow back.

Drastically changing hormone levels, adverse medication reactions, autoimmune illnesses, and unsuitable nutrition can also impact your body’s ability to grow eyebrow hair. Alopecia areata is one such autoimmune illness which may impact the growth of eyebrow hair. Though the follicle is not scarred, individual eyebrow hairs may fall out.


A condition called telogen effluvium, in which the normal hair cycle is disrupted, can be caused by various factors including changes to hormones, stress levels, and the diet. It is common for people consumed by emotional or psychological stressors to experience telogen effluvium. People recovering from a serious eating disorder often deal with telogen effluvia.
