Are you experiencing excess hair fall? It could be triggered by bouts of stress. Our physical and emotional stresses along with any traumatic events can cause hair to fall prematurely. We can all pretend we are travelling along OK, but the body never lies. Hair loss from stress can be broken down into 3 categories.
Severe or prolonged stress can push large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase. This in turn can cause affected hairs to fall out with simple tasks like brushing or washing your hair.
Caused by a variety of different factors including severe stress. This condition happens when the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing loss of hair.
This type of hair loss factors into more of a psychological realm. The individual has an irresistible urge to pull hairs from the scalp, eyebrows or various parts of the body to alleviate feelings such as loneliness, frustration, boredom, tension and stress. So what can we do about it? Managing stress and finding outlets to alleviate chronic tension is paramount. There are plenty of “at home” techniques that can be incorporated into a daily routine that will benefit. Hair loss can respond to certain lifestyle changes such as: Breathwork, yoga, meditation, counselling or seeking a support group, spending time outdoors and exercise. Some other steps one can take also include: Healthy sleep patterns, incorporation of a balanced diet, limiting stimulants like coffee or energy drinks and including a vitamin supplement.Is stress related hair loss perpetuating the problem and making your stress levels escalate? Tackle the problem head on by utilising protocols like topical scalp applications or medications. This can limit the amount of hair shed thus making the individual feel more proactive and more in control. Be part of the solution and not the problem!It has been said that knowledge is power.
