Hair Loss and Stress - The Link

in Hair-loss

The link between hair loss and stress, is a very common one, although many people do not realise it. Of course, there are many reasons as to why you are losing your hair, stress is just one. And, funnily enough, the one we will be talking about in this article.

Both hair loss and stress can be remedied by taking a few simple steps. Taking the right nutrients that your body needs, a few extra ingredients, and making sure you are reasonably healthy in your habits.

Needed Nutrients

You may not know this, but there are many nutrients out there that can lower your stress levels considerably, and promote healthy hair growth. That is two advantages for the price of one, and it is especially good if your hair loss condition is caused by stress alone.

I would recommend that you take vitamin B6, because it can improve your body's ability to handle stress a lot more easily, thus hopefully stopping your thinning hair problems.

Biotin is also a good product to get your hands on. This essential vitamin gives your body what it needs for your luscious locks to grow, and helps out your skin and nails too, a bargain by my calculations!

The last thing, nutrition-wise that I am going to tell you about is, a herb called Saw Palmetto. Recent studies have shown that is plays a big part in hair re-growth. It helps in the process of suppressing the hormones that stops your lovely locks from growing, therefore letting them make a re-appearance.

Extra Ingredients

Earlier I did talk about the extra ingredients you want to be included in your hair loss and stress treatment. I would recommend the following;

  • Minoxidil
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc

    Of course, there are many others, but that is the few that I would recommend, on top of the nutrients mentioned earlier. If you take one or two, or even all of them together, you should hopefully be stress free, with beautiful hair, in no time.

    Healthy Habits

    Treating hair loss and stress also requires healthy habits. That is why I would advise you to take regular exercise, drink plenty of water, eat well, and make sure you make time for yourself. The last if the most important in my book, 'me time' is always good for stress relief!

    Remember also, that not everyone loses their hair to only stress, and so it is worth your while to check that you don't have an underlying condition. Happy hairstyling!
