Stress-Related Hair Loss

Studies have proved over and over again that there is a serious link between stress and your body. Stress can manifest itself physically in variety of ways, including but not limited to nausea, skin problems, nail deficiencies, teeth grinding, ulcers, or relevantly, hair loss.

As if it weren't bad enough to have enough stress that it is manifesting itself physically, dealing with hair loss exacerbates the stress and makes most feel insecure, sensitive and ugly. Rest assured that many people suffer stress-related hair loss, and most of them of learned how to hide it.

If the hair loss is minor, you may be able to consult with your stylist on ways to cover up the noticeable spots. Sometimes styles as easy as pony tails, clips, or wearing it down can mask an unsightly bald spot.

If the hair loss is more major, you might consider a wig. Wigs are incredibly real looking with today's technology and you would be surprised to know how many women are wearing wigs every day and you have no idea!

Always consult with a doctor if you're losing your hair as a result of stress. Most importantly, if you suspect that you're losing your hair as a result of stress, immediately identify ways in which you can reduce stress in your life. Make small life changes to ease stress in small ways, such as getting enough sleep, organizing your home, get a massage, or take some time off work. For greater spiritual life changes, look into yoga, aromatherapy, acupuncture or holistic healing. If you think you have a very serious problem managing stress that you're unable to eliminate, consult your doctor about a treatment plan that works for you. Reducing the stress in your life is ultimately the only way to get your hair growing back.
