Can Stress Cause Hair Loss?

In this fast-paced world, there is no time to slow down, relax or unwind unless you actually find the time to do so.With everybody in a hurry to do something or the other, multitask, there is bound to be anxiety, there is bound to be stress.

Hair loss due to Stress

In many cases, anxiety or stress can lead to a lot of mental problems and physical problems too. When it comes to the physical problems, stress has been seen to affect hair loss to a great extent, even cause it, in some cases. When people take that extra pound of stress in the fear of losing hair due to whatever reasons, research has found that, this increases hair loss.

Are you suffering from Hair loss due to anxiety?

The fact of the matter is, no matter what the cause is, hair loss is ultimately hair loss. If you see the symptoms which are obvious such as continuous hair fall, you need to visit your doctor or even visit us at Hairsure clinics where our trichologists can determine the cause and treat your condition as well.

Hair loss due to anxiety

But if your hair loss is due to anxiety and stress, it can make living with hair loss way more difficult and stressful than it already is.

Hair Loss Due to Anxiety and Stress

Anxiety can only cause hair loss if the anxiety is severe and is difficult to control. It all starts with stress and eventually once you let stress get the better of you and it becomes persistent and long term, it becomes anxiety. However, even though there is a connection, anxiety and stress are two different conditions, both of them can make you go through severe mental and physical stress, often or at all times.

There are quite a few types of hair loss which occur due to severe stress as one of the causes. They are:

Alopecia Areata – Large clumps of hair is lost in and around the scalp.

Telogen Effluvium – This condition is when hair fall is more than normal.

Trichotillomania – In this condition, a person has a habit of pulling out the hair by himself or herself without even realising it, mainly due to stress.

Trichotillomania

Mild hair loss is not as likely to be caused due to stress, but trichotillomania affects a small percentage of population who suffer from anxiety. For those people, visiting a doctor is of utmost importance as if this goes on without any kind of rectification, it will eventually result in severe hair loss or even balding or pattern baldness.

People with anxiety often suffer from hair loss but that does not always mean, that their Hair Loss is anxiety related. It might just be their anxiety that might lead them to believe the same. However, it is important to work on the aspect of anxiety or stress to make sure that, the chances of your hair loss being caused by either is less. But if you are not able to do that, visit us at Hairsure or Book an Appointment so that, your hair loss can be controlled along with some aspects of your anxiety as well which makes you think that you are losing hair even if you are not.
