    Why are my eyebrows so thin?

    At the Harley Street Hair Clinic we not only offer the revolutionary FUE hair transplant procedure, but we also offer FUE eyebrow restoration treatment for those with little to no eyebrows. We often get asked questions regarding why their eyebrows are so thin.

    When it comes to hair loss, many people will automatically think about the hair on their head and not even think about their eyebrows. The truth is a large number of people also have to deal with hair loss on the brow area, leaving them with very thin and in some cases, no brows at all.

    Today we’re going to look into the different reasons you might have experienced hair loss around the brow area.

    Poor Diet

    The hair in the eyebrow area is just like the hair on your head. This means your eyebrow hair could be affected by the same cause that affects the hair on your head. Poor diet is one example.

    The daily nutrition our body gets plays a huge part in the health of our hair, your hair is comprised of the second fasted-growing cell in your body, and all of these hairs need support. Hair loss issues can arise from a deficiency or an excess of certain nutrients in your diet, something that can, in turn, be fixed.

    An example of this is an iron deficiency can cause hair loss, whereas, too much vitamin A can also cause hair loss. It is important to eat a balanced diet to give both your hair and body the nutrients and vitamins needed to keep your body and hair healthy.

    A good diet including a good portion of protein (fish, chicken, lean meat, eggs) as well as a good portion of complex carbohydrates (whole wheat bread, pasta, brown rice), as well as a mixture of fruit and vegetables, could help improve the health of your hair.

    Medical Condition

    There are quite a few medical conditions that can cause hair loss of the scalp and it can also trigger problems with eyebrows too.

    Hypothyroidism, a condition where you have an underactive thyroid gland causing it not to produce enough hormones can cause hair loss on the scalp and brow area. One main medical condition that can lead to hair loss is cancer those with cancer might have to undergo chemotherapy – a treatment that has a range of side-effects, including hair loss.


    One of the biggest reasons for thin eyebrows could be down to something as simple as over-plucking. Although the current trend shows thick, full and defined eyebrows a decade ago it was much more fashionable to have very thin brows, which caused many women to over pluck.

    Continually plucking the same area of hair can lead to weakening in the follicles and this damage can results in hair growth completely stopping.


    Thin eyebrows are extremely common but the good news is there are a couple of treatment options to help you restore a bold and defined brow once again. At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we offer two revolutionary hair restoration procedure that are designed to create fuller eyebrows for those with thin eyebrows, and we can even create eyebrows for those with no hair.
