How anxiety and stress can cause hair loss: read everything in this post

One of the “side effects” of stress and anxiety is unfortunately hair loss, and it looks like that the people who live with the fear of going bald, may actually contribute to their hair loss.

The relation between stress and hair loss may be difficult to understand fully, because the mental factors can be quite complex, but one thing we know for sure: the way you feel can contribute to the thinning of your hair.

For sure, taking an anti hair loss drug, like minoxidil or a natural program like the Full Program, can help you decrease and stop baldness, but as an immediate step you need to get ready to reduce your stress and anxiety from affecting your life.

The following are the different conditions that can be caused by stress:

  • Telogen Effluvium, where much more hair than normal prepare to fall out;
  • Trichotillomania: a condition caused by anxiety where the nervous person pulls his own hair without even realizing it;
  • Alopecia areata: loss of big quantities of hair in different areas of the scalp.

In the best case, stress can just weaken your hair.

At we know that stress can influence the hormonal production in your kidneys (in the Full Program material there is a complete video where all this is explained in details), and this means that there will be an unbalanced secretion of testosterone (with a consequent excessive presence of DHT on your scalp) and other hormones.

We have seen in other posts how there is a close connection between hormones and hair loss.

Some people begin to feel stress and anxiety because their hair is thinning, and this means that hair loss is their stress trigger, and it grows because they are so worried about going bald.

Negativity can trigger a receding hair line

It’s good to know that for those who suffer from anxiety that all stress related hair loss is not necessarily permanent, and if you are able to reduce the stress factors in your life, your hair loss may decrease and stop spontaneously, and your hair may come back.

You need to make sure that you are addressing your stress directly in order to reduce the likelihood of stress related hair loss and the feelings you are experiencing because of your lost hair.

The Full Program can help you halt the thinning of your hair forever, once the stressful source in your life has been resolved.

How does stress influence our skin?

When we become stressed, the level of our body’s stress hormone, called “cortisol” arises, and one of the immediate consequences is an increase in oil production (the so called sebum).

This can lead to different skin problems like acne, oily skin, dandruff, irritated scalp (sebum contains DHT – the hormone that attacks the hair follicles) and hair loss.

I have noticed that even patients with a healthy skin tend to develop stress-related acne due to increased sebum secretion.

A publication in the January 2001 issue of the Archives of Dermatology states that stress has a very bad effect on the barrier function of the skin.

This results in loss of water that prevents the skin’s ability to repair itself after it has been injured.

The psychological events that stress our life adversely affects the regular functions of the skin, and this includes the condition of the scalp.

This is a further explanation of how stress causes hair loss.
