Stress and Hair Loss

Wanting to tear your hair out may just be a figure of speech, but did you know that prolonged stress can actually lead to hair loss? Now by stress, we mean something more than just a rough day at the office or a fight you have with your friends: We mean actual, physiological stressors that change the way your body functions, including its hair growth process, in a significant way. What are the top stressors that can lead to hair loss? Wigs and Hair Solutions has the list:

Changing your diet

A dramatic change in your diet, particularly if you are cutting back your calorie intake, can lead to hair loss. Losing weight at a rapid and unhealthy level is a shock to your system that can affect the rate at which your hair replenishes itself.

Having a baby

When you are pregnant, your body produces hormones that actually make your hair stop falling out; as a result, it may feel even fuller and thicker than normal. However, once you have your baby and your body resets itself to its pre-pregnancy state, you might find the change leads to hair loss.

Taking birth control

Whether you go on off birth control pills, your hormones are going to undergo a change. Because of this change, your hair may fall out as your body tries to adjust and compensate for the different levels of hormones.

While there are a variety of factors that can contribute to hair loss, one thing about it is certain: You may not notice hair loss until three to six months after the trigger stressor occurs. But when you do begin to notice hair loss, you can count on Wig and Hair Solutions to help you stay feeling beautiful and confident.
