Stress and Hair damage

Have you ever noticed more hair fall when you’re feeling stressed?

There’s a proven correlation. In a study conducted by Harvard, researchers saw how chronic stress impacted hair follicles. “Stress essentially just elevates this preexisting ‘adrenal gland–hair follicle axis,’ making it even more difficult for hair follicle stem cells to enter the growth phase to regenerate new hair follicles,” according to the senior author of the study, Ya-Chieh Hsu.

Getting to the Root of Stress

Most of your strands are in a growth phase, while 10-15 percent, on average, remain in a resting phase. However, during acute stress, over half of your follicles may enter the resting phase, followed by a shedding phase.

It’s natural to lose 50-100 strands a day. But if you start noticing more significant loss, it’s time to consider your lifestyle choices, stress levels, and hair products.

Help for Stressed Strands

So, chronic levels of stress are a major culprit of hair damage. But what can you do?

First, fill the nutritional gaps. Healthy hair depends on diets rich in vitamins and minerals like biotin, zinc, and selenium that help prevent hair loss. Nutritional deficiencies result in the loss of shine, luster, and thickness.

Next, give hair a helping hand. While some stress is part of life, hair loss doesn’t have to be. CAITERA® has solutions to help restore luster and life to your distressed tresses.

“Until I went through menopausal hair thinning, I didn’t understand the stress, frustration, and blow to the confidence that hair loss causes.

It’s a journey, and patience is required, but the body is remarkable and will respond to the right things. My mane is beyond thick and healthy now!”
