Stressed? Surely your hair has noticed it too

The accelerated pace with which we try to find our work-life balance usually has an effect on our skin. Lots of our body parts feel the consequences of an increase in workload, trying to reconcile with our family or simply a larger number of responsibilities. Our hair undoubtedly gives the biggest warning sign when it begins to fall out.

Stress alopecia

When hair falls out due to a constant state of anxiety or nervousness, it is known as stress alopecia or alopecia areata.

The most evident symptoms of alopecia areata is a general loss of hair, rather than from just one specific area, as well as homogenous hair thinning around the surface of the scalp. Once this stage of anxiety has passed, the hair will revive with the same vitality as before.

Advice to reduce stress

Of course some stressful situations are inevitable. However, by following this advice the stress could become more bearable and reduce your anxiety so that your hair is not affected:

  1. Breathe: Often we forget to breathe correctly and deeply. Breathing deeply will help you to channel your stress.
  2. Do physical exercise: Doing exercise is not only good for looking after your body, but also your mental health. Doing physical exercise clears the mind and removes the stress hormones, such as cortisol and also releases endorphins, which are “happiness hormones”.
  3. Give yourself a massage: If you have had a very stressful day then give yourself a massage. Your body and your mind will thank you for it. It is important that the massages are focused on the area around your neck, because this is where more energy is concentrated.
  4. Organise your time: Prioritising will allow you to give more importance to the things that merit your immediate attention. If you organise your time well, ultimately you will notice that you relax, your attitude will change and you will feel better.
