Do eyebrows grow back?

Do eyebrows grow back?

If you lose your eyebrows, for whatever reason, will your eyebrows grow back? The short answer is, yes. The longer answer is, yes they will return but the length of time it will take them to return varies from person to person. And even worse, the thickness of the return brow also varies from person to person. So that means they could grow back just fine or they might grow back but not be as thick as before.


Eyebrows are not like the hair on your head, in the way that they grow. It is extremely hard to grow your eyebrows back if you shave them off completely and even worse, it could take about 4-8 months to completely grow back. Some people will notice significant growth in as little as 2 to 3 months but most people will find it takes the full 4 to 8 months to get them back full.

I guess the best thing I can tell you is, just don’t shave your eyebrows off. Seriously. Don’t do it.

Some people have a return brow with absolutely no issues whatsoever in a matter of weeks or months. While others will notice little spots that may not ever grow back fully or maybe grow back thinner so it looks odd. Overall though, eventually with enough time, love and care, your eyebrows will in fact grow back … just for some it may actually a really, really long time.

You can help the process by avoiding all sorts of plucking and waxing. I know that won’t be easy but you need to be patient. They will eventually grow in—your eyebrow follicles just need to be reminded to grow hair, and the best way to do that is not to pull any out. So that means no matter how tempted you are, don’t pluck or wax any of them during your regrowth cycle, no matter how tempted you are.

Some people even suggest exfoliating your skin. I can’t say if this works or not but basically what you do is use a soft facial brush to scrub your brow area in a circular motion, which removes the dead skin cells and is supposed to spur circulation. Just remember not to scrub to hard. Using to much pressure may loosen the hairs that are there and cause them to fall out.
