Stress can cause hair loss
Feeling that hair is falling is distressing and it is difficult to get around the panic when you notice that the threads that remain in the drain after bathing , trapped in the brush or still loose on the pillow and on the clothes became tufts with scary volume. Often confused with baldness, or simply attributed to lack of care with the hair, the loss of the wires is not immediately linked to the evil that affects a large part of the world population: stress.
How stress acts on hair loss
To understand the action of stress in hair loss, it is first necessary to diagnose the condition of the hair. size of the problem. Losing about 50 to 100 strands of hair daily is considered normal by experts. However, care must be taken: if there is no replacement, the problem is serious. According to dermatologist Arthur Tykonciski, who specializes in hair treatments, new hair should grow to maintain balance. According to the professional, stress can report a temporary fall, driven by a time when the tension levels are higher, or even an anticipation of baldness for those who are prone to lose the wires.

In very extreme situations stress causes the hair to fall. It compromises our peripheral circulatory system, affecting the fixation of the wires. High rates of the hormone cortisol in the body, a result of acute stress, is also on the list of factors that influence hair loss.
From the physiological point of view, explains Tykonciski, hair is regarded as not very important for the body . Thus the body understands that when there is a need for proteins and vitamins it can use the nutrients directed to the wires to another needy area. Under stress conditions, the body accelerates the production of a substance known as estriol, which can prevent the entry of nutrients into the hair region and slow hair growth.
Another factor raised by specialists is alopecia areata, a disease that develops about three months after an intense stressful load. Devastating, it can make an abrupt halt in the growth of hair (or hairs) in a specific area of the head or even the body. And, of course, the appearance of dandruff is also influenced by stress as well as the increase in oiliness of the hair.
How to Fight Hair Loss
There is no miracle solution when hair loss is caused by stress. Relaxation, physical exercise to decrease anxiety and increase the production of serotonin (neurotransmitter responsible for the sense of well-being) and a less troublesome routine are indicated as the pillars of the treatment, which must always be accompanied by a doctor
Hiding the evidence does not always work. One study found that those who jumped over the fence have their voices considered to be "more likely to betray" than the others. In Albright College's survey, 152 volunteers listened to recordings of people who had already betrayed and others who never did. They had to classify the voices between more and less likely to betray, with grades 1 to 10.
Working is an activity that daily requires emotional, physical, and mental energy. However, balancing and orchestrating all this is not so easy. Too hard a boss, a coworker who sabotages ideas, lack of recognition, gossip, questionable salary, among other things, can undermine any work environment. If this happens, the lack of spirits appears.
