Fighting Stress-Related Hair Loss

Fighting Stress-Related Hair Loss

Let’s talk about the treatments available to regrow hair lost due to stress - 
Managing stress levels 
Avoid harsh hair treatments
Home remedies
First things first - if you feel that your hair loss is related to stress, then managing your stress is your first priority.
So how can you manage your stress levels?
  • Exercise 
  • Change your lifestyle 
Exercise reduces levels of the body's stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators.

Change your lifestyle!

This often means you just have to stop doing certain harmful things or stop surrounding yourself with negative vibes or even speak up if you’re going through emotional tensions. 

For instance, if you are a smoker, it is time to quit

Scientists have established how smoking can lead to hair loss. 

It does so by impairing how the enzyme system in the hair follicle operates, in short increasing the breakdown of the hair follicles. When they do, the hair cannot grow. 

Next up - Getting the best nutrition for your hair can encourage normal healthy regrowth.

Protect your hair against damage whilst slowing down hair loss by avoiding harsh products and treatments including:

  • Hot oils
  • Hot curling irons
  • Hair bleaching
  • Hair straightening
  • Hair straightening chemicals
  • Combing wet hair.
For slowing down hair loss also consider:
  • Anti-dandruff shampoos
  • Healthy hair creams and oils 
  • Scalp massage

Anti-dandruff shampoo prevents the build-up of flakes and itching on the scalp. If the itching is not taken care of, it can lead to inflammation of the hair follicles and consequently, can lead to hair loss. 

What are the simple home remedies that encourage hair growth -
We cover these in our previous videos - but for a quick summary:
