Here at UKLASH, National Stress Awareness Month is extremely important to us, as one of the leading causes of hair loss is due to stress and anxiety. While we all deal with symptoms of stress from time to time, many struggle to live with these feelings, along with the consequences.
We want to remove the taboo from this important subject and bring it to light as much as possible. So keep on reading to discover more about National Stress Awareness Month, hair loss due to stress and anxiety and how this can be reversed for long and healthy hair this season.
Hair loss due to stress and anxiety
Of course, hair loss is never the only symptom of anxiety, but it is the most distressing one which usually adds fuel to the fire.
Stress can cause many conditions that lead to hair loss, including:
- Alopecia: Sudden loss of hair in areas around your scalp or hair loss that builds over time.
- Telogen Effluvium: This is a condition where more hairs than normal prepare to fall out.
- Trichotillomania: A condition caused by stress and anxiety where the person pulls out their hair, most times without even realising it.
Many people struggling with symptoms of stress and anxiety can suffer from nutritional deficiencies. Thus, a lack of vitamins will cause problems with growing back hair that naturally falls out each and every day.
Let's remember that while hair loss can be caused by stress and anxiety, hair loss can also be genetic. Oftentimes, this is the result of hormonal imbalances or a side effect of certain medications, but stress and anxiety can also be to blame.
Why does stress cause hair loss?
As mentioned previously, increased stress and anxiety can often cause nutritional deficiencies, making it difficult for hair to replace itself after it naturally falls out.
Yet, stress and hair loss don’t have to be permanent. If you can get your stress under control, your hair may grow back better than ever…
How to regain hair loss from stress?
To grow hair back after stress-related hair loss, healthy hair needs to be the focus and preventative measures should be taken. So, here are a few ways to help regrow healthy hair quickly:
1. Massage your scalp daily
One of the most underrated ways to help hair growth is scalp massagers, as they stimulate the scalp and increase blood flow to the hair follicle, which is the pocket from which the hair grows. This boosts follicle nutrition which can help your hair grow healthier.
2. Silk bedding & head wraps
Sleeping on cotton bedding can damage your remaining hair, as the rough texture can cause friction to your locks. So, wrap your head in a silk head wrap each night or opt for silk bedding (or just a pillowcase) to protect your new growth from unnecessary damage.
3. Invest in a Hair Growth Serum
Choosing a hair growth serum, like our UKLASH Hair Growth Serum can speed up the hair growth process, along with ensuring your new growth is healthy from root to tip. Our UK Hair Serum is formulated to fight hair loss and boost hair density and is packed with vitamins for thicker, denser, fuller and healthier hair growth.
4. Incorporate Hair Gummies into your routine
Why not pair the Hair Growth Serum with our UKLASH OMG! Hair Vitamins? Our delicious strawberry gummies are scientifically formulated with essential vitamins like Biotin, Vitamin C + E, folic acid and many more antioxidants to maintain healthy hair growth.
Why can’t I relax?
To put it simply, life can just be really tough. While it's easy to say “others have it worse”, we all go through ups and downs in life, which can cause increased stress and anxiety leading to hair loss. Therefore, it's important to find moments of peace and relaxation, whenever you can.
Relaxation is like brushing your teeth or drinking water - creating a consistent routine is important to maintain your mental and physical health. One of the best ways to ensure you relax each day is making sure you set aside some ‘self-care time’ each day.
