How Stress Causes Hair Loss

        Hair loss is triggered by different causes such as hormonal imbalances, hereditary factors, illness, nutritional deficiency, shock, and many more. However, stress related issues are interrelated and one of the excessive stress side effects causes hair loss. Too much stress weakens the hair follicles and the aftermath stops hair growth.

Stress Types


Emotional stress: This is mainly due to trauma, injury, illness and conflict.  Emotional stress is high when there is loss of a loved pet or person, relocation or loss of a job. Out of stress, some people develop nervous habits including excessive rubbing of the scalp and literally pulling the hair out.

Physical Stress:  This includes chronic illnesses such as Asthma or Diabetes. The physical stress may also include child birth, pregnancy, menopause and menstruation. Here, the hormone levels affect the hair follicles and overtime the hair becomes less visible. Likewise, when your body is healing some illness, the energy required for the hair growth is diverted towards the healing needs and so there is hair loss.

Spiritual Stress: This may be due to restriction to worship, negative events in the church or a crisis in faith. Even, life events such as a loved one’s death, all kinds of abuse can trigger questions of faith in God, regardless of the religion and cause hair loss.

Being excessively stressed, emotionally, physically or spiritually can very much cause witnessing hair loss of one of the two types that is caused by being stressed. The two types are:

Telogen Effluvium: This is the foremost type causing losing your hair due to stress. It may be severe and damage your appearance. Generally, this is commonly caused due to stress and it lies dormant resulting in hair falling out in large volumes in two to three months time. This hair loss will grow in six to nine months time.

Alpecia Areata: This is the second type induced by stress causing losing your hair. Here, the white blood cells cause your hair to fall out by attacking your hair follicles. So, your hair falls out in patches and even your body hair disappears.
