Stress Related Hair Loss


Hair shows whether your body is in balance or not. If you are physically healthy as well as emotionally balanced, your hair will be lustrous and shining and your scalp moist. If you are physically not well, or are beaten down emotionally, your hair become dull and lifeless and begin to fall.

 Hair loss is a sure sign that stress has pushed your body off its balance. It is known that the sudden outbreak of a stressful event causes the hair follicles to stop the production of hair and retreat into a resting phase prematurely. Thereafter and during this period; an unnatural amount of hair start falling. For more information on "stress related hair loss", read Give Me The Symptoms Of Stress.
