If you have noticed your hair thinning, especially in your eyebrows, this may be a sign that you have a thyroid problem. “An over- or underactive thyroid disrupts your hair growth cycle. Usually, hair grows while a small part rests,” Backe says. “When you have a thyroid problem, too much hair rests at one time. This causes your hair to look thinner.”
