    Default Eyebrow hair growing in different directions

    Does anybody have eyebrow hair that grows in different directions? Does anyone also find that their eyebrows don't grow towards the end of the arch?? I don't know if this because of an excess of androgen in the blood or what??? Can anyone shed any light????

    Oooh, I think I know what you're talking about! On my left eyebrow, the hairs closest to my nose stick straight up while the other ones point outwards. It's just on my left eyebrow too. I have a waxist tell me that she thought it was cool, but it kinda bugs me. Such is life, I guess!

    My left eyebrow does that same sticky-uppy thing. From the research I have been doing about hypothyroidism, the problem you mention at the ends of your eyebrows can be a symptom.

    I actually do have hypothyroidism... That's really interesting, Vanessa. I had no clue about that. I guess you learn something new everyday

    Wow, kmc, I actually thought you'd seen my pic and were decribing MY eyebrows! lol! Then I realized that I'd changed my avatar! Seriously, my eyebrows grow like yours with one horrible exception.............bushiness................... .. if I don't trim them regularly, they'll look like caterpillars! (just like dear ol' grandpa...)
    Sometimes I have to fill in the end of myleft eyebrow or it'll look like I got too happy with the tweezers!

    Mine does the same thing, but I have never been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I may be asking my doctor though next time I am there.
    I always hated the uneven eyebrows. The one always looked great, then the other one looked like it was waving to people!!

    Holy moley, isn't that the weirdest thing? Yesterday I got my eyebrows waxed for the first time since they started growing back. I have hypothyroidism and they had sorta vanished at the ends. But now that they've grown back I look like a really cute, uh, Albert Einstein. Ewwww. Anyway, after I got them trimmed yesterday, this morning I noticed how nice and sleek one looked, but the right one looked like it had a party last night and didn't invite me... I would be really interested to hear what a doctor has to say about that!!!

    My right eyebrow is the one that sticks up & it bugs me so much! Every time I tweeze it always looks like I made a mistake...never thought about filling it in though, I always just leave it & no one ever says anything to me b/c they either don't notice, it looks really funny & they're embarrassed, or they just think I was sleeping when I tweezed!

    I'm happy to know it's not just me...don't think I have thyroid issues...

    Just in case I have confused anybody, it is the thinning at the outer ends of the brows that is a symptom of hypothyroidism, not the sticky uppy thing.

    Naughty eyebrows can sometimes be trained. If you can, get your hands on some clear mascara. I think Maybelline makes some. You can use that to shape your brows and if you do it a lot, they should eventually be a bit tamer. HTH!

    Talking Like we don't have enough issues!

    My eyebrows are thick, wiry and bushy. I have to trim them. And I overplucked the outer edges for years, so now they won't grow back right. I'm currently not doing anything to them, just to see what happens (but if a small child runs away from the caterpillars on my face, I'm pulling out the tweezers immediately!).

    So how come we end up with hair where we don't want it, but not where we need it?
