Hair Loss Caused by Stress

 

Hair loss is a common occurrence between both men and women alike. However, a lot of people may have experienced a dramatic increase in hair loss because of stress. It is no mere coincidence and there is actually a whole science behind this association.

 

What is Telogen Effluvium?

 

Telogen Effluvium is the scientific name for hair loss caused by stress. This type of hair loss is caused by a severe or sudden experience of stress or a stressful event. What happens is that the stress causes hair follicles to stop growing prematurely and enters into a phase that is known as resting. The hair would then remain in the said phase for around three months and after which, a considerable amount of hair is shed.

 

In most cases, the patient would have already been able to recover from the stressful event even before he starts manifesting symptoms of this condition. Although Telogen Effluvium is mostly temporary, there are some instances wherein hair loss carries on until the patient is able to resolve the underlying cause of the stress.

 

The Usual Suspects

 

Telogen Effluvium is more common in women primarily because of childbirth, which is definitely a stressful event. As mentioned earlier, a lot of women experience hair loss after about three months of giving birth. In fact around 20 to 45 percent of new mothers experience this type of hair loss. The good thing is that it is mostly temporary and the hair usually grows back after around 9 to 12 months after childbirth. In relation to child birth, pregnancy termination is another stressful experience for women that have been known to trigger Telogen Effluvium.

 

Although hair loss caused by stress is indeed more common in women, there are still a lot of men who fall victim to this condition. Telogen Effluvium can also be caused by traumatic events such as an accident, a death of a loved one, or any form of physical or emotional abuse.
