Eyebrow hair loss can happen just as well on your eyebrows as it can on the top of your head.
In this article I will discuss what could be causing your eyebrows to have hair loss as well as remedy treatment ideas that you can do. Even some of these being hair loss treatments that you could do from home to help recover your eyebrow hair loss.
If you find the correct eyebrow hair loss cause, you are more likely to get it resolved at the root of the problem. Here are some of the most common reasons your eyebrows are thinning due to hair loss.
1.) Hormones: Hormone imbalances can easily cause female hair loss on your eyebrows. Some of the most common conditions that cause hormonal imbalances are pregnancy, thyroid disease, hypothyroidism, menopause, PCOS, Lupus, and estrogen levels.
2.) Stress: Stress and anxiety can very well cause hair loss thinning on the scalp and on the eyebrows too. Traumatic events that have happened in your life such as a sudden death of a loved one, or other shocking events can be suddenly life changing can cause female hair loss thinning.
3.) Immune system imbalance: Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly thinks that your hair is bad for you to have and your body will attack and destroy it, as if your body is fighting the flu.
There are many different forms of alopecia that can be caused by different ways.
Frontal fibrosing alopecia can cause scaring on the scalp as well as eyebrow hair loss.
Alopecia universalis means that no hair appears on the entire body.
Alopecia areata is where the hair loss appears in spotted areas on the scalp or body.
4.) Skin Conditions: The main skin conditions that can cause hair loss on scalp and / or eyebrows are psoriasis, ring worm, itchy skin such as dermatitis and eczema are some of the most common reasons that could cause eyebrow hair loss.
5.) Nutrition: Eating the right foods and taking the best vitamins to get the correct nutritional needs for hair growth is a very important step to prevent and help fix hair loss. Your body needs biotin, vitamin C, iron, vitamin D, vitamin B-12, vitamin E, vitamin A, proteins, carbohydrates for energy, amino acids, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids (good fats) to help get healthy hair regrowth.
But don't over do it! Take the normal amount you would for serving your self as you would normally do for any other meal. Taking too much of these suggested vitamins can also cause hair loss too.
6.) Over plucking: Over plucking eyebrows can cause a small trauma to this skin's area and can stop hair growth in that specific spot of eyebrows or body hair.
Once you figure out what is causing the eyebrow hair loss you and your doctor should choose a treatment to use here. There are even some ideas that you can do at home.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture helps with hair loss regrowth due to the fact that it does seem to create better blood flow and circulation to your hair follicles which in turn helps with hair regrowth.
Natural Treatment: Castor oil is a natural hair loss treatment that helps with hair regrowth. This oil has zero side effects and can help stimulate hair regrowth by creating stronger healthier hair follicles. Coconut oil can also do this too while also killing bacteria naturally on the skin.
Hair Vitamins: Eating healthy foods can help balance hormones while giving you the right nutrients to benefit healthier hair growth too! Eating foods such as Walnuts, fish and eggs are very good for hair regrowth. I also have a healthy brownie recipe for hair regrowth that you can try. It's so yummy!
Hormone therapy by a doctor: Prescriptions for hormone therapy can be an option if your hormones are causing major issues in your life such as eyebrow hair loss and perhaps scalp hair loss. Please ask your doctor if this type of medication might help. Also you should know and realize that if you're currently taking other medication(s) that this could also be the cause of your hair loss as well.
Eyebrow hair transplant: Is where the doctor will take some of your skin that has healthy hair follicles and places it where you need it such as in this case being your eye brows in order to start the hair growth process.
Eyebrow Tattoos: This is a permanent option that is also quite affordable. The only concern I personally would have is, I would worry that the eyebrow styles change throughout the years. One decade bushy eyebrows are all of the rage the next decade shaped thinner eyebrows can be in style. This is a personal choice to definitely think about based on your lifestyle.
