Stress Can Cause Hair Loss

By Alex

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss has been a major concern for both genders in recent times. However, very few people actually know about the causes which include stress. Stress sometimes induces hair loss which is sometimes irreversible. We have devised various treatments which ensures that hair loss is the last thing on your mind. 

The link between stress and hair loss

Stress can lead to Telogen Effluvium which is a medical condition leading to hair loss. Telogen effluvium is often responsible for large portions of hair loss, where the hair typically falls out in 'handfuls'. Up to 70% of scalp hair can be lost through this condition. Telogen effluvium doesn't actually cause hair loss, instead it causes the hair to stop growing.

Stress can also lead to a condition called Alopecia Areata. This causes white blood cells to attack the hair follicles in the scalp, leading to very instantaneous hair loss. Hair often falls out in patches, but total hair loss can affect the whole scalp in the space of a few weeks. In very extreme cases, alopecia areata can also affect body hair - causing it to fall out as well.

After hair has fallen out due to stress, it often grows back. However, in some instances it does not and treatment can be required. We can provide you with multiple solutions like FUE hair transplant to help prevent hair loss from stress.

How to treat stress-related hair loss

Specialists are available to assist you and help you decide if medication or our revolutionary FUE hair transplant is required for hair re-growth. Often, the most effective treatment is to diagnose where the stress is coming from, and to reduce that aspect by removing the cause of stress. Lifestyle plays a large part in our health, and our hair is not immune to this.
