Is my hair loss due to stress? Maybe… Although you may be attached to your tresses, hair isn’t required for living from a biological standpoint. As a result, one of the first things your body does when you’re stressed is stop developing hair.

Physical stress, such as a significant sickness or accident, giving birth, going through physical changes such as menopause, and having surgery, is often easier to comprehend.

Emotional and mental stress, on the other hand, has a physical impact, causing problems such as:

  • Disruptions in sleep.
  • A lack of iron.
  • Malnutrition is a problem that many people face (vitamin and mineral deficiencies and imbalances)
  • Constipation / stomach issues.
  • Sexual dysfunction – A common problem.
  • Energy deficiency.
  • Headaches that last a long time.
  • Virus infections on a regular basis.

Stress and the physical concerns it produces, according to research, can promote the release of certain hormones called corticosterone, which can decrease hair growth. The more stress you have, the more this hormone is produced in your body. Although everyone is different, some people may have hair loss as a result of this.

What types of hair loss is caused by stress?
It is debatable… The growth phase, the transition phase, and the resting phase, which includes shedding, are the three phases in which hair grows. Stress can affect the hair cycle at different stages, causing thinning and even baldness.

Telogen effluvium is a type of telogen effluvium that (TE)
Hair loss known as telogen effluvium occurs during the growth phase of the hair cycle and can be caused by stress if your body keeps your hair in the resting phase as a preventative precaution. To put it another way, TE hair loss occurs when you stop growing new hair and your existing hair sheds more easily.

TE can be triggered by significant or prolonged physical, mental, or emotional stress. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may have TE hair loss:

  • Hair loss that appears out of nowhere.
  • Hair loss that is widespread (all over your head rather than in one location).
  • Hair loss that appears and disappears.
  • Alopecia areata is a kind of alopecia (AA).
  • Alopecia areata, an autoimmune illness in which your white blood cells assault your hair follicles, can also be caused by stress.

If you detect any of the following, you may have AA hair loss:

  • Your hair has started to fall out in clumps.
  • Round or oval spots of hair loss.
  • Hair loss in other parts of your body is possible.
  • It’s crucial to remember that alopecia areata hair loss can occur suddenly or gradually.
  • Other types of hair loss caused by stress.
  • Other types of hair loss, such as trichotillomania, a strong and frantic desire to pull out your hair, and androgenic alopecia, which stems from increased sensitivity to male hormones, can be caused by stress.
