Madison is your typical college senior. She belongs to a sorority, has a fiancé and is planning a wedding, as well as studying for midterms that are coming up in three weeks. This does not sound all that unusual for her because she is used to being on the go all of the time.

Madison thought that she could handle everything in her life but she was recently becoming very stressed and she started noticing that her hairbrush was gathering more hair in it than usual. Madison went to her doctor and he told her there was nothing wrong with her and her hair was falling out because of all of the stress that she was under and she needed to take some time out of her busy schedule to relax.

All of the stress was causing her body to produce a chemical that was blocking the proper nutrients that her hair growth cycle needed to produce healthy hair. Madison was not sick, she just needed a break because all of the stress she was under was causing her hair to fall out.

Different Types Of Stress

What is the correlation between stress and hair loss? As you can see stress and hair loss go hand in hand.

There are two different types of hair loss related to stress.

Severe stress such as a major surgery is one of the links between stress and hair loss. The traumatic shock to the system causes the hair to stop growing and reverts to a resting phase. Hair can be at rest for months, but before new hair can grow the resting hair has to fall out and this usually happens a few months after the hair has rested. Once the hair falls out new hair can begin to grow.

Intense stress is another type of stress linked to stress and hair loss. When this type of stress occurs, the hair follicles are attacked by white blood cells that cause the hair to stop growing. After a few weeks the hair will fall out. What makes this type of stress and hair loss different from the others is when the hair begins to fall out, it falls out in patches. This type of stress and hair loss may not only occur on your head, but can happen all over your body. This kind of hair loss can be total and although your hair may grow back, it usually involves some kind of treatment and hair may not grow back at all.

As you can see stress can cause all kinds of havoc on your body and experts suggest that you take some time for yourself, relax and de-stress your body. This will eliminate this completely preventable form of hair loss in men and women.
