Eyebrow hair loss, the medical name for which is eyebrow hypotrichosis, or eyebrow madarosis, can cause a person to notice thinning hair or missing patches of hair in their eyebrows.
People may notice eyebrow hair loss on one or both sides. Other symptoms can include itchiness, dry skin, and hair loss or hair thinning on other parts of the body.
It can be part of the ageing process but can also be due to an imbalancement of thyroid hormones.
Thyroid disorders include:
dry, pale skin or moist, velvety skin
a swelling in the neck (a goiter)
coarse, dry, and brittle hair
a dry, itchy scalp
thick, dry, brittle nails
Thyroid-related hair loss is usually temporary, and the hair should return to its usual fullness once thyroid levels return to normal.
A diet rich in zinc, biotin and fatty acid (fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, spinach, & avocados) can make a substantial impact on your hair health and restore your thyroid levels.
