Stress can be a major factor related to hair loss. And, for those who are thinking how to know that the hair loss you’re having is due to stress? Here we have brought you some information.
Three types of hair loss are related to stress, namely,
• Telogen effluvium: high-stress levels push your follicles into a resting and stagnant phase which means they stop growing and after a few months all the follicles fall out suddenly while combing or washing.
• Trichotillomania: in this type, your significant stress levels force you to pull out hair from the scalp, eyebrows, and other parts.
• Alopecia areata: this type happens when you’re dealing with adverse stress. And in this, the immune system of your body attacks the hair follicles leading to hair fall.
The first advice would be to consult a doctor upon self-diagnosis but apart from that here are a few things you can do from your side that would help tackle the problem in a better manner.
In the feed, we have gathered a few effective tips that will prevent hair fall and boost hair growth. But make sure all these tips are not substituted for any medical assistance but should be additional steps that you can follow with medical aid.
The foremost step in dealing with hair loss related to stress is managing the stress. If you control stress you can boost the stagnant hair growth. Therefore, managing the stress level is really important. Here, we have mentioned a few things that will help you manage stress.
• Be Positive
• Regularly Meditate
• Eat Healthy
• Exercise Regularly
• Be Optimistic
• Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine
Keep in mind that medical assistance will only work when you manage stress, as in stress-related hair fall; stress is the major root cause.
Meet The Nutritional Needs
Some odd eating habits can also trigger stress; therefore, make sure you’re eating healthy. To keep your hair healthy your diet should include all the healthy nutrients. Your diet should be composed of carbohydrates, proteins, fat, minerals, zinc, iodine, and iron.
But, what you eat less than half of it goes to the hair and which is not sufficient to keep your tresses healthy. Therefore, apart from a balanced diet also take supplements including Vitamin A, Vitamin B, and Vitamin E to meet the nutritional needs.
Harmful chemicals present in the hair care products can trigger hair fall. Hence, always avoid hair care products that are made of SLS and Parabens. Chemicals also deteriorate the texture and quality of your hair so not only these chemicals are a big no for hair growth but also a big no for the long-term health of the hair.
Always opt for mild shampoos and conditioners. Switching towards healthy hair products is just equivalent to a healthy diet.
One thing more, restrict yourself from applying too many hair care products as over-layering weakens the hair roots.
