Does stress cause hair loss ? Strange as it may sound, it actually does so. To understand how it can cause balding, you need to first understand the relationship between anxiety and loss of hair. These two have a rather complex relationship, because not only can anxiety trigger hair loss, it will make it very hard for you to control hair loss once it starts.

Slide 3:

Hair loss is not the only anxiety-related symptom, but it is definitely one of them. What really happens is that long-term anxiety soon develops into stress which is persistent. When you suffer from stress, it can give rise to multiple conditions which result in hair loss. Is hair loss related to stress?

Slide 4:

Alopecia Areata occurs when there are dramatically huge losses of hair in clumps on your scalp or when there is gradual hair loss which slowly builds up over the years. This is when the immune system in your body starts to attack hair follicles, causing hair to fall out. Telogen Effluvium occurs when there is an abnormal fall of hair all of a sudden.

Slide 5:

Trichotillomania happens when the person concerned has a habit of pulling out his hair unconsciously. Hair pulling can also be considered as a manifestation of discomfort or negative feelings that are in turn induced by stress, frustration, boredom, or even loneliness.

Slide 6:

People who suffer from a minor hair loss condition usually do so because of stress-weakened hair. The other two conditions, namely Trichotillomania and Telogen Effluvium, affect fewer people and may be a cause for concern if left untreated.

Slide 7:

The truth is that people who are stressed emotionally or physically tend to also suffer from deficiencies of other kinds, mainly nutritional ones. For instance, when they are under a lot of stress, they may avoid eating the right kinds of food. This means the body is deprived of vitamins and minerals which it needs to function properly. Why does hair loss occur when you are under stress?

Slide 8:

There are several ways to control stress levels and these may actually help the hair to grow back again. While there are many treatments available, the best hair treatment for hair loss will depend on the extent and cause of your hair loss. Can you reverse hair loss?

Slide 9:

When you notice sudden hair loss or hair loss in patches, or abnormal loss during shampooing and combing, you should consult a doctor. This may be indicative of an underlying medical problem which must be treated. Unless it is a deep rooted medical condition, you can treat hair loss using treatments like Minoxidil , prescription Finasteride and laser treatments. The trick to getting the tresses back is to indentifying which hair loss treatment will work best for you.

Slide 10:

You may even make use of many home remedies and hair growth accelerators that you get easily in the market. But, the time needed for hair to re-grow may vary from one person to another. You need to be patient if you are signing up for hair loss treatments because the results may not be fast. For people who have experienced hair loss due to heredity or genetics, chances of getting the hair back are very slim. In such situations, a hair transplant procedure is what you need.
