why do eyelashes fall out so easily from rubbing?

Hair all over your body generally “falls out easily from rubbing”. That is to say, all of your hair all over your body is constantly growing. Your hair goes through regular cycles in that once it grows enough it’ll fall out naturally. The closer individual hairs get to falling out the more easily they are to pull out, which is what happens when you rub your hands over them.

The same holds true with your eyelashes….the hairs that “fall out easily” are simply the ones that were close to falling out to begin with. Not all of your eyelashes will fall out simply by rubbing, those that are close to doing so will though.

Maybe because it’s vital for the body to get stuff away from the eyes? When they fall off, the thing stuck in them, posing a risk to the eye, will come off easier.
