• I reccomend not doing it. It's hair with follicles so of course it'll gro back even if your scalp is bald. In college I got really drunk and my "friends" decided to shave one eye brow off. Ha Ha. So I had to shave the other and it took about 3 weeks or so for it to grow back.
  • Ca I ask you why you are doing this? Is it a nervous habit or are you under some kind of stress? You should examine these questions first, as it is important to know why you would be doing this: it is not normal nor advisable. Your eyelashes are there for a reason, to protect your eyes. Yes, they will grow back, but if you keep pulling them out, you will be in the same position.
  • ...I recommend you stop pulling out your eyelashes.
  • You may have a disorder called trichotillomania - there is a support group on yahoo for it - I have it too and pull mostly my eyelash hairs - they do grow back generally, but the danger is that if you manage to damage the follicle, certain lashes may not grow back. It's a disorder precisely because those of us who do it have a compulsion to do it - just saying "don't do it" isn't enough - I tell myself not to do it all the time and then I find myself picking at them. The support group on yahoo is really nice - you'll find a lot of people who understand about the compulsion to pluck. Good luck!
  • Your eyelashes will eventually grow back. You really shouldn't be pulling them out in the first place. Do you have a nervous disorder that is causing this?
  • they will grow back but it is a slow process
  • I did the exact same thing, it is very hard to stop but your eyelashes will grow back it just may take its time. if it gets really bad i would buy some fake lashes that you can use daily till your eye lashes grow back.
  • sounds painful i hope you grow them back soon.
  • its a form of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) caleld tricotelimania....i have had this disorder since the 4th grade.. now im a sophomore.....

  • I do this too, its not because it feels nice or anything, in fact it doesnt feel anything at all, its just something i do, kinda like people who bite their nails i guess. firstof all i just use ti pick off my mascara, then my eye lahes were coming out th it, now i just cant stop doing it when im bored!! its annoying but i am trying to stop, i cant wait for them to grow back! x

  • Hey. your not alone! I have had this disorder since i was eight i am now 19. i dont remember why i first started doing it. I just remmember i could never stop! Its an ocD disorder TOT. I never even realizzed it was a disorder till this last year of 2008. you see i had always thougt it was nothin more then a very bad bad habbit. I know how you feel , and the worst part is when someone calls you weird and says "just stop doing it" you see they vont realize how bad it is and cant just stop. THERE IS HOPE I did once grow them back when i was 15 they were just as pretty as before. i stayed busy and tryed my hardest to catch myself in the act. I now rely on make up but i know that there is guys wit it or younger females. I recomend when and if you do grow them back lay off mascra for quite some time. that will genraly cause you to clump and pull!!! write me back if youd like:) much love
  • i reallly wish i couls stop as well. i started when i was 17 now i am 20. i do it the most when i am alone, and bored and especially when i am stressed out. i will do it at work or at school while taking a test. its embarrasing. but its sooo agrivating becuase you touch your eyelashes and you feel that ONE eyelash that is thicker than the other or thinner or longer or shorter.... and no matter how much self discipline you have, that eyelash will be out by the end of the night. i had done it reallllly bad once and they just recently grew back. then my boyfriend left for iraq for 6 months, so here came the stress. now... 80% of my lashes are gone. i wear fake ones and heavy eyeliner so you cant tell. and once they start growing in i continue to wear the fake ones.... its so embarrasing becuase spring break is coming up and i dont want to go in the pool or beach becuase then you can see my bald spot onmy eyelid. and its HUGE. helllllp.
  • normally takes mine a couple of months to fully grow back, try putting a tight rubber band round your wrist and when you go to pull give it a good twang it really does work and tell your family and friends if they see you do it they can grab your arm and pull it it really works.
  • Yes definately. You just need to be pateint I pulled my eyelash since I was 11 because I was bullied & then it became a worse and I would only pick them if people were saying bad things to me especailly my parents I didnt really knew at that time what it actually this disorder was called now I know that many people have had this since there were young and in there teens. We are living in this small world and there are going to be alot of people saying different things about eachother but we need to stand up for on another and keep our heads high. I am 30 now & in another month or tow I will have the longest thickest eyelashes that I have ever seen on a person. The best thing to do about this is to also keep yourself busy at all times this will prevent you from picking your eyelashes. Also you need your lashes to protect your eyes because without your eyes you cannot see. This will protect them from dust, cold & sunlight. Its very important to keep your lashes I know this now it is not just to have a pretty face but god gave you these lashes for your protection of your eyes just remember this in future I hope this helps.
  • Yess don't worry they will grow back again for that eyelid surgery is one of the best option. For more details visit
