Are stress and hair loss correlated? Absolutely! Here, let me explain what’s happening and what you can do about it.
CONNECTION BETWEEN HAIR LOSS & STRESS
Stress is a main reason for hair loss and is generally the first question that we ask at our salon when someone is concerned about excessive hair loss.
We all know, Coronavirus is the worrisome topic on everyone’s minds right now. But all health crisis aside, our lives are busier than ever and with technology always at our fingertips, it’s getting more and more difficult to switch off. We have seen a rise in clients complaining of hair loss: “It is becoming more common in females in earlier ages.
CALL THE EXPERTS
If your hair loss is moderate, we recommend seeing a trichologist (hair and scalp specialist) to determine what the underlying cause is. “Unfortunately there is no one size fits all solution,” so I recommend every individual seeks professional advice to determine what works for them.”
What can we do now?
CREATE A GOOD HABITS
If you’re a frequent washer, start by cutting back on the amount of times you wash per week. “Not over washing hair will significantly help". Once or twice a week should do the trick.
Avoiding hot water and switching to cold.
Try giving yourself a regular scalp massage to promote circulation.
Do you use heat electronics such as straightener, curler, blow dryer - regularly? These can have a significant impact on the health of the hair. Try to limit your use.
