Stress & hair
We are all going through some rough times, that are very stressful.
Stress has a major impact on our hair, so here is everything you need to know about the connection between stress and healthy hair, and what could be done to treat it!
So how does stress affect our hair?
Like many things, our hair growth is cyclic. It has 3 main stages-
growth, transition stage and rest stage.
On an average day, we lose around 50-100 hairs, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
When we experience stress, pressure, or anxiety, our hair cycle gets disrupted, and we may experience hair loss or severe hair thinning, which can take place even 2-3 months after the stressful event.
How can we treat this condition?
In situations like such, our hair gets more brittle, so it is important for us to know how to treat it properly.
