Eyebrow Hairs Falling Out!!!

Anyone know why my eyebrow hairs are falling out? I've lost like 50 in the last week! Everytime I touch my eyebrow like 2-3 more hairs come out.

Re: Eyebrow Hairs Falling Out!!!

I rather have them fall out then have a bushy eyebrow lol. But, if it's just a few eyebrow falling out everyday then i think it's okay. However, if it's like 50 falling out everytime you touch it then i would see your doctor.

Hairs shed. Unless it becomes noticeably sparse, it's just normal shedding.

Anyone else have any advise? They are still falling out at a rapid pace and when I look in the mirror my eyebrows look thinner, like I can start to notice it now.

Re: Eyebrow Hairs Falling Out!!!

Losing eyebrow hair, especially the outer third, is a classic sign of hypothyroidism. You should get checked by your Dr. for this. The same thing happened to me, and once diagnosed and medicated, my brows came back.

Re: Eyebrow Hairs Falling Out!!!

it's actually the outer 2 thirds that have become noticably thin and that's the area where they are dive bombing from. I was just sitting here typing and one just fell out in front of my eye, I never even touched it.
