Do eyebrows grow back?

2 months ago I plucked to much hair off my eyebrow and have been waiting for it to grow back but it hasnt filled in yet. Will it grow back or do some hairs never grow back again once they are plucked?

Yeah, usually they do grow back. In the meantime, you can try using one of the treatments for eyebrows/eyelashes, like Mavala or Talika. Apparently, many people say it helped their eyebrows grow back much faster.

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

The answer is yes and no.
Yes, usually they do grow back if you haven't been doing it too often. When done repeatedly, the hair follicles get damaged and the hair never grows back.
Sometimes, however, even one severe overplucking can damage some of the follicles so that some of the hairs never grow back.
You have to be very careful with plucking eyebrows. If done properly, this can give your face a wonderful boost, if done improperly (in the wrong shape or too much ) it can age your face dramatically. Eyebrows are VERY important to your face.

Is this true for all hair on the body or just for the eyebrows? I have lots of hair that grows randomly on my forehead and around my eyebrows that I have been plucking evey morning for the last few years but the hair always grows back. I really wish I had stopped plucking my eyebrows when I got them to look good instead of trying to get them too thin.

It's only true for eyebrow and eyelash hair. These seem to be different than hair anywhere else and it also grows much more slowly.

I learned the hard way and wish some one told me but NO they don't always grow back. The older you get the less likely it is that they will.
I now have to fill mine in with gel and brow powder.
I would go get them done and follow the line from then on out while plucking.
Good Luck

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

They don't always grow back. There was an actress that got her eyebrows shaved off for a role and they didn't grow back. She had to draw them on. I want to say it was Lana Turner, but can't imagine what role she was playing. Too early for Vulcans I think.

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

So I guess my only hope is to wait and see what happens and hopefully they will grow back. I already have a few hairs that have grown back but not all of them have so they still look a little uneven. This is the first time I have plucked my eyebrows this thin and I am a 20 yr old male who has alot of hair all over my body. I hope that makes my chances of them growing back higher.

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

Yes I've heard about how eyelashes can not grow back if way too many are pulled out or the hair follicles are traumatized.

My eyebrows have always grown back if I overpluck or they fall out (I sleep on the side of my face), but sometimes they can take a while, so HOPEFULLY yours are just coming in slow. It's usually the ones you WANT to grow back that take forever, and the ones you DON'T want that grow back in right away!!! Seems like it at least!

My eyebrows are kind of thin naturally and I shape them with plucking, but I like them to look a little darker so I use eyebrow powder. It looks natural.. I use one made by Maybelline and I get the dark brown (it isn't that dark, the medium one looks more reddish brown on my face for some reason). When my eyebrows are barely there on the outer corner (where I lose them) this stuff makes them look great!

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

After over 2 months I can finally see some hairs growing out of the little patch of my eyebrow that I want to fill in but they are very tiny and there are only like five of them. Does this mean that the follicle is not damaged? If not will they keep growing and how long will it take?

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

If there is hair, there are follicles. That's the good news.
If the follicle has been damaged, the hair that grows out of it may be thinner, finer than the previous hair occupying that follicle. It may also not grow to the same length as before. It may even be (or appear) lighter in color. Still, you should be happy that there is at least some progress. It's definitely better than none at all and if there is even fine hair there, you can do a lot with it to make it look darker, fuller. Eventually the hair may come back as it was before (sometimes dormant hair follicles become active) so even if the old ones are lagging behind, new ones may take their place. Be patient. With brows you have no choice.

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

I have both for eyelashes and I think Mavala works better.
I have the Talika eyebrow and I think it does accelerate the growth, but that is the only eyebrow one I have tried.

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

I was wondering if anyone has used a product called Talika eyebrow lipocils to help eyebrows grow quicker? It is a gel that you apply to your eyebrows everyday and on there website they have clinical tests that prove the eyebrows become thicker and fuller in 30 days. Is this just for existing eyebrow hair or will it also help stimulate new eyebrow hair growth?

Re: Do eyebrows grow back?

I have been using Talika Lipocils (for eyebrows and eyelashes) since I was a teenager and that's MANY years ago. I love the product, obviously. I have naturally very long eyelashes but I was always worried about them falling out, breaking off from daily mascara use, so I tried the Talika. It makes my eyelashes grow even longer and very soft and conditioned so they don't break off and that makes them appear thicker. I think that it makes my eyebrows better as well and I use it daily. Whenever I travel to Europe, especially France, I make sure to stock up so that I don't run out. You can get it at Sephora as well, but it's a bit more expensive there.
I would definitely recommend trying it but don't expect very dramatic results, just an improvement.
