The effects of stress on women Stress is one of the causes of female alopecia and affects the pattern of hair growth. When our body experiences stress, a series of signals are produced to the hair follicles, causing them to enter the resting phase. This means that during this phase there will be no new hair growth and in the following months there will be that new hair vacuum while the hair falls to the normal rhythm, causing an irregular pattern of hair growth.
Stress alopecia usually appears during times of high stress, such as a divorce, a birth, the loss of a job or the death of a family member, among other things. In addition, it is more likely that this alopecia appears a posteriori, that is, after having suffered the episode of extreme stress or anxiety. Once the cause of stress has been eliminated, the growth patterns return to normal.
On the other hand, 25% of women suffer from the so-called androgenetic alopecia, which also affects men, and which in many cases is aggravated by stress and anxiety. Effective treatments to combat stress alopecia As is common in our recommendations, the first thing you should do if you detect a stress episode and its related hair loss, is to go to a specialist to assess your case and start a hair regeneration plan.
Food will also play an important role in this process.
