Here are a few reasons why your eyebrows may be thinning- or falling out:
If you have alopecia, you may have thin brows or no eyebrows at all. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes the body's immune system to attack your eyebrow hair follicles. This may also prevent the brow hair from growing back.
If you have a diet that is deficient in certain nutrients, it can impact your eyebrows. Nutrients that impact hair growth include Vitamins E, C, B-12, and D, as well as iron and omega-3 fatty acids. In a case like this, a simple oral supplement may be all that is needed to improve eyebrow hair growth.
Skin conditions like psoriasis can cause issues with eyebrow hair growth. Dermatitis impacts the follicles.
If you have issues with your thyroid or are hormonal, this can also affect how your eyebrows grow. Since your thyroid controls metabolism, it also affects hair growth. See your medical provider to learn more.
Anyone who is going through or who has gone through Chemotherapy may find that their eyebrows thin and stop growing. Chemo is intended to impact the cells, and hair loss is one of the side effects.
