I've been plucking my eyebrows since the 8th grade. Now, I'm about to be in 12th, and weyulll...they've kind of stoppped growing back. Well, they grew back, but they're all thin now.

Does anybody know how I can grow them back?

When you act like an ass, don't be upset when people ride you.

You may be out of luck.

Plucking generally does not cause significant skin damage, but it may injure hair follicles that are repeatedly plucked. This may result in the formation of ingrown hairs, or the elimination of future hair growth. At any given time the majority of eyebrow hairs are in the telogen, or resting, phase. Eyebrows, therefore, lack the regenerative capacity of hair on other body regions, and individuals should meticulously avoid overplucking them.

[emphasis added]


I'd check with your doctor or a dermatologist to see if he or she has any advice.

Whilst what Lady Moonlight said is true - sometimes your eyebrows dont grow back - dont give up all hope.

I have overplucked my eyebrows many times (being slightly eyebrow obsessed ). Each time, i was really worried that they wouldnt grow back, but each time they did, if i waited longer than expected. I couldnt say for sure whether it will be the same for you, considering i hve opted for waxing over plucking many times in the past, but its still something to think about.
