I remember growing up and hearing adults complain about the aging process. They would say that their joints were achy, they could not digest food as well, they were gaining fat in their midsection, had gray hairs popping up everywhere etc. For some reason I thought this would never happen to me. Well…it has.
Ever since I got pregnant and gave birth, my eyebrows have become really sparse. They used to grow fast and get bushy causing me to get them waxed once a month. I have not gone in for a waxing since 2014!
I had been looking up causes of this not too long ago. My google search led me to a lot of articles talking about hypothyroid as a cause of it. I did actually get a blood test done for my thyroid a few months ago for an unrelated reason. It turns out that it is working perfectly so I can not blame it on that.
There were other things I read about that supposedly cause eyebrow hair loss. These include nutrient deficiencies, eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, ringworm, stress, anxiety, pregnancy/childbirth, over plucking, chemotherapy, aging and harsh chemicals getting in the eyebrow area. I am thinking that age, harsh chemicals and maybe nutrient deficiencies are the cause.
Rogaine is used by some people to help with eyebrow growth but people have gotten bad skin irritation from it. That makes me nervous so I do no think I will try it at this time. The last thing I want is some horrible rash in my brow area along with the sparseness. I will also try to be conscious about where I am applying the chemical containing skin products I use because that can cause eyebrow hair loss as well.
For the past week or two I have been using a lash and brow enhancer from a company called Pure Biology. It has stuff like caster oil and biotin in it. I think I will keep applying this two times a day and hopefully it will help in time! Also, omega-3, omega-6 and collagen supplementation are said to be helpful to hair growth so I might supplement with those.
If anyone reading this has had eyebrow hair loss and thinning let me know what helped you!
