I've never heard of anyone else having this. - December 9th 2009, 06:48 AM

I am addicted to feeling my eyebrows. Often times I get people asking me if I'm crying because for most of the day my fingers are running along my brows causing my face to be covered. If I find a hair that is even a small bit thicker than the rest or oddly shaped, I'll immediately pluck it out. There are times that I have sat at the computer and just plucked away, which resulted in no eyebrows, but now that they've grown back, I want to stop feeling and plucking them!

this might not help but do you do it as an anxiety release becuase I've got something called trichotillomania. Its an axiety disorer that leads to pulling hair-any area not just salp or eyes
sorry if this doesn't help :|


If I say I'm fine...I'm not

I feel my eyebrows a lot and like twist the hairs if that makes sense?
I pluck loose hairs but not if they aren't loose. But I do it all the time. I just kind of wrote it off as a nervous habit or something, I do it with my eyelashes to.

My boyfriend feels his eyebrows a lot, mainly when deep in thought as a way to fidget.

Is there any time in particular that you do it?

We all have our habits.

Yeah, I'm sure it's a habit. But I do it all the time. Whenever I'm at the computer and my hands aren't on the keyboard, they're on my eyebrows. I'll also do it when I'm standing around talking to people or sitting in the car or at the dinner table. Pretty much anytime my hands aren't occupied.

I can relate.. I have a 'fondness' for my eyebrows and am very perticular about them... i will 'play with' and feel my eyebrows at all most any oportunity and make sure they are properly looked after...
I've all ways just looked at it as one of my little quirks... nothing to worry about i would say
