How Stress Leads to Hair Loss

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can be detected from thinning hair on the scalp. Hair loss can be genetic and can arise from other biological factors such as age, sex, and gender. However, hair loss can also be induced by our own minds and well-being, which can have serious effects on our health and physical appearance. For example, today, we will be discussing how stress can potentially lead to hair loss and the different forms of hair loss that can form from stress.

First and foremost, stress is a mental or emotional strain that occurs from underlying and often daily uncontrollable factors. The way we feel about certain ideas, circumstances, and opinions may cause tension in our lives that can affect the way we think and react. How we respond to these situations may lead to stress, which could lead to hair loss. Let us start by naming the different types of hair loss that can stem from stress:

  1. Telogen Effluvium
  2. Alopecia Areata
  3. Androgenic Alopecia
  4. Trichotillomania.

Telogen Effluvium is hair loss that can occur from stress or a traumatic event in which most people experience hair loss at the top of their scalp. However, this type of hair loss may be reversible, and its effects are temporary.

Alopecia Areata is known as an autoimmune disorder in which hair loss occurs out of nowhere and proceeds rapidly; it can be detected in small yet circular bald patches that may or may not overlap. It is also one of the most common forms of hair loss, as it affects 6.8 million Americans today. The way alopecia areata functions is that it starts by attacking your hair follicles through your body’s immune system, causing them to shrink and eventually hinder its growth. Depending on the severity of this disorder, your hair may grow back.

Androgenic Alopecia is a very common form of hair loss that can occur in both females and males, which is why it is formerly known as female or male pattern baldness. This type of hair loss can be linked to other more serious medical conditions, such as heart disease and polycystic ovary syndrome, as well as several others. This type of hair loss can usually be recognized in males when hair loss travels along the scalp in a specific pattern, usually thinning at the crown, while in females, the thinning often spread all over the scalp.

Trichotillomania, also known as a hair-pulling disorder, is a mental disorder in which the victim pulls out their hair uncontrollably, whether it be from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, or various other areas. How trichotillomania is linked to stress is that for some victims, pulling their hair out is a way of coping with stress, negative feelings, or tension.
