Does stress cause hair loss?

Stress can cause many issues in one's health and well being, one of these issues is hair loss. Stress may accelerate already genetically programmed hair loss. Against popular belief, hair loss is NOT caused by poor circulation, frequent shampooing, wearing hats, or clogged hair follicles. Most adults naturally lose up to 100 strands of hair from their scalp every day. As long as an equal amount of strands fall off and grow, everything is fine. If someone notices an accelerated hair loss after stress or trauma, there are steps you can take to reverse the process The first obvious step is to reduce stress levels both at work and at home The second step is to exercise and strive to eat healthy, like your organs, hair needs nutrients too. The third is to get in touch with a restoration specialist to find a solution and prevent future hair loss.
