The damaging effects of stress on your hair

As many of you may have experienced, the more stressed you are, the more hair you lose. The three types of hair loss that are caused by high stress levels are…

Telogen effluvium

Significant stress levels push a large number of hair follicles into a resting phase which then fall out suddenly when combing or washing your hair.

Trichotillomania

The urge to pull out hair from your scalp is called Trichotillomania. Hair pulling can be a way of dealing with negative or uncomfortable feelings, such as stress, tension or frustration.

Alopecia areata

A variety of factors are cause alopecia areata, including severe stress. With alopecia areata, the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles which causes hair to fall out.

It is extremely important to point out that hair loss as a result of high levels of stress is not permanent and can be reversed. By controlling the levels of stress in one’s life, hormones remain balanced which once again allows natural hair growth to resume which reduces the rate at which hair falls out.
