You don't remove your makeup.
The ultimate makeup faux pas? Sleeping with makeup on! Leaving makeup on can clog hair follicles with residue, sweat, and talc, preventing the skin from breathing and leading to pimples, blocked pores, and even hair loss.
Products like Brow Gel can stiffen your brows, and the friction against the pillow can literally pull out your eyebrows.
You are removing your makeup incorrectly.
If you're too rough when removing makeup and use back-and-forth rubbing, you risk pulling out eyelashes and brows. Let the remover sit for a moment to soften your brow products before gently wiping it off.
Try not to brush through your brows are your brow gel or brow soap has set.
You can risk pulling our brow hairs by causing friction when you brush through the dried product.
You pluck too much.
Continuous plucking can permanently damage the hair growth control centre called the papilla, hindering regrowth. Hence, when plucking, consider whether the hair truly needs to be removed. Better still? Leave it to the professionals at your monthly Alison Jade brow styling appointment!
You may be deficient in certain vitamins.
Deficiencies in zinc, biotin, and fatty acids can cause brittle nails and hair loss. A visit to your family doctor for a blood test can offer more insights.
Hormones can affect your hair growth cycle.
Hormonal changes during menopause or pregnancy can cause temporary or long-term thinning of eyebrows. Additionally, you may experience fewer or thinner brows during menstruation or after discontinuing birth control pills.
