Can Stress Cause Hair Loss?

It's important to know about the source of any hair loss that you are experiencing. If you feel as though you don't recognize the person staring back at you in the mirror, it's time to figure out what's going on.

Stress can be a source of hair loss. Particularly if alopecia or other forms of hair loss don't run in your family, it may be as simple as dealing with too much stress in your life. With stress manifesting in so many different ways, it's important to focus on the issue as soon as possible.

Hair Loss Associated with High Stress

Whether it's something at your job or in your personal life that is stressing you out, it may be resulting in hair loss. Even if you think the stress is manageable, your body might say otherwise. There are a few types of hair loss commonly associated with high levels of stress. These include:

  • Telogen effluvium: stress pushes hair follicles into a resting phase. When this happens, the affected hair may fall out within a few months when you go to wash or comb your hair.
  • Alopecia areata: severe stress is one of the factors that can lead to this form of alopecia. In this case, your immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss
  • Trichotillomania: this is a disorder where you have the urge to pull hair from your scalp as well as other parts of your body. You may start pulling your hair as a way of dealing with negative feelings, including stress, tension, and frustration.

A hair loss professional can provide the diagnosis to determine more about what's going on. As soon as you know what's causing the stress as well as why you are experiencing hair loss, you can start to gain control of the situation. There are a number of ways to reduce your stress. In many instances, hair loss isn't permanent. This is when it can be beneficial to turn to hair loss professionals.
