Hair loss can be upsetting, whether you’re losing the hair on your head – or your eyebrows. Eyebrows frame our faces, and we notice when they thin. If you are losing eyebrow hair, you aren’t alone. Causes of eyebrow hair loss range from temporary to permanent.
Conditions like psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and eczema are all inflammatory conditions. Inflammation near the eyebrows makes the skin itch. Over-scratching damages eyebrow follicles and causes hair loss. These conditions cause patchy hair loss, usually temporary. An infected follicle or growth in the area, like moles or warts, can also impact eyebrow hair growth.
Sometimes, internal conditions cause eyebrow hair loss. Hair loss on eyebrow edges often indicates an underactive thyroid. Most thyroid conditions are treatable, and hair usually regrows. Hormonal shifts, medication side effects, and poor nutrition can hinder eyebrow growth. Alopecia areata can affect eyebrow hair growth.
Hormonal changes, stress, and diet can disrupt the hair cycle, leading to telogen effluvium. Emotional stress often triggers telogen effluvium in people. Recovering eating disorder patients often face telogen effluvium.
Eyebrow loss is often accompanied by traditional hair loss. If you are experiencing permanent hair loss and you are looking for an effective option, reach out to the team at Hairline Ink.
