Usually, anyone who is too excessive or accidentally plucks eyebrow hair will really look forward to it. So, how long does it take for an eyebrow to grow back?

Unlike when you just shave your eyebrows, removing your eyebrow hair from the roots can take a longer time to grow back.

Here is an expert's explanation regarding the time it takes for eyebrow hair to grow back quoting from

Is there a condition where eyebrow hair will not grow back?

In general, eyebrow hair can grow back as long as the hair follicle has not died. If the hair follicles have been damaged repeatedly, eyebrow hair growth will most likely stop occurring.

One of the main causes of damaged hair follicles is when hair is pulled from the roots repeatedly over time. Usually, waxing and tweezing (not shaving) are two ways that are often done to remove hair from the roots.

If you remove the eyebrow hair from the root, it will take quite a long time to grow.

According to trichologist (hair and scalp expert) Gretchen Friese, it takes about 4-8 weeks for you to see eyebrow hair grow back. Although, the actual eyebrow growth cycle can take between 3-4 months in length.

Here is the growth cycle of eyebrow hair which is divided into 3 phases:

1. Growth phase (anagen phase)

In the growth phase, eyebrow hair will grow to a predetermined limit. According to dermatologist Dr. Michele Green, the growing phase usually takes between 30-45 days.

2. Transition phase (catagen phase)

In the transition phase, the hair follicles will move closer to the surface of the skin and begin to shrink before reaching the final stage.

According to Dr. Michele Green, this transition phase can last from 2-3 weeks.

3. The final phase (telogen phase)

At this stage, new eyebrow hairs have started to grow from the hair follicles.

As the eyebrows grow, the old hairs will fall out and new strands will continue to grow.

Then, the cycle will repeat again when the hair starts to fall out.
