Do You Have Stressed-Out Hair? The Effects of Stress on Your Hair
There is probably not a single person around who doesn’t know that stress is bad for you. Not only can it take a toll on a person physically and psychologically, it also can lead to other problems like dry hair or even hair loss.
There are many reasons why men and women lose their hair. Life-changing events such as childbirth, a death in the family or surgery can cause hair loss. During these stressful times, the body tries to focus on recovery and healing by taking time out from non-essential biological processes like growing hair. Therefore, hair does not grow as much and some could shed and not grow back right away. This hair loss can continue to happen for three months after a stressful event. It can take as much as six to nine months for hair loss to be reversed. Following a stress management program would be helpful to get your hair to start growing back.
While stress can affect other people in different ways, one sign can be hair loss. See your doctor to make sure you are getting proper care and to rule out the possibility of other medical causes. In the end, when we don’t take care of ourselves, our bodies let us know it’s time to slow down. One way to slow down is to spend a day at the salon and treat yourself like royalty, even if it’s just for a few hours.
