The Stress

Updated: Oct 10, 2021

Time for a little stress education. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are 3 types of hair loss that can be associated with stress.⁠

Telogen effluvium - where significant stress can push follicles into a resting phase, causing a sudden and dramatic amount of fall out when combing or even washing hair. ⁠

Trichotillomania - is the uncontrollable urge to pull out hair from the scalp, brows, lashes, or other areas. Stress can drive some people into hair pulling. ⁠

Alopecia areata - where the body's immune system attacks the hair follicles causing hair loss. There may be other factors of this type of loss too. ⁠

Stress can't be stopped but it can be managed! Taking a walk in nature, listening to music, unplugging, taking a bath or a drive, writing, painting, or treating ourselves to a salon service are some ways we can calm ourselves and beat the grief!
