How Can Stress Be Associated With Hair Loss?

03 Types of Stress-Related Hair loss:

  • Telogen effluvium
  • Alopecia areata
  • Trichotillomania
  1. Telogen effluvium:

In the Telogen effluvium, stress can affect hair by sending hair follicles into the resting phase. Due to which, hair doesn’t follow the regrowth phase properly.

Hair may regrow afterward but the shedding can persist for up to 6 months. But if shedding lasts more than six months, or you persistently cycle in and out of periods of increased stress, then it is called a chronic telogen effluvium.

  1. Alopecia areata:

In the Alopecia areata, the immune system gets affected and causes hair to fall out. In this type of stress-related hair loss, the immune system attacks our own healthy cells and causes hair to fall out by destroying the hair re-growth cells.

  1. Trichotillomania:

In the Trichotillomania, a person compulsively pulls out his hair from the hair-bearing areas like from the head, beard, eyebrows or eyelashes. A person has an irresistible urge to pull out his hair due to stress, anxiety, loneliness, boredom or due to depression.
