The impact of stress on the body

Trichologists deal with alopecia, indicating a worsening of the hair after nervous stress.

Stress has a detrimental effect on the body as a whole, resulting in a malfunction in the operation of systems that, in turn, can not fully provide the body with the right substances because of the narrowing of blood vessels.


Narrow, even thin capillaries of the epidermis of the head. After that, the hair begins

to thin, dandruff, seborrhea, and hair loss can occur.

The main cause of loss is a hormonal imbalance that worsens the oxygen and trophic nutrition of the hair follicles.

Deficiency of nutrients and oxygen helps to reduce the activity of the cells of the follicle and the loss of its functionality.

This is as follows:

  • thinness and dryness of the hair shaft;
  • brittleness;
  • cross-section ends;
  • hair loss in certain areas;
  • is averaging over the entire surface of the hairline.

Stress is caused by various emotional causes that can be grouped into two groups: chronic stress and sudden moments.

It should be borne in mind that different causes of stress affect the body in different ways.

Constant tension, anxiety for relatives, difficulties at work and in the family are accompanied by certain biological processes.

Sudden emotional negative outbursts promote the development of a number of defensive reactions of the body that cause partial or complete alopecia, as well as discoloration( appearance of gray hair).

The main feature of baldness after stress is that the deterioration of the hair condition is not immediately apparent.

The process of alopecia after a nervous strain can be divided into several stages:

  1. The constant development of adrenaline is expressed in nervousness and vzvinochennosti. After this, a hormonal failure may occur. Such changes almost do not affect the external state of the hair;
  2. As a result of the hormonal imbalance, the inflow of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles is disturbed, resulting in a decrease in the activity of the hair follicles, which simply maintain the hair condition at the same level, but are not capable of producing new elements. By external signs, there is a cessation of hair growth;
  3. Due to the constant deficiency of oxygen and nutrients, cells cease to function, as a result of which bulbs are not able to produce new hair and maintain existing ones. Outward signs of hair loss.

Sharp emotional outbursts and experiences are reflected on the scalp a little differently. The basis of a sudden emotional outburst is adrenaline, which affects the structure of the bulb.

The problem lies in the fact that the hair follicle has a small muscle fiber.

Sudden emotions contribute to the strongest production of adrenaline, which causes a number of protective reactions.

Thus, adrenaline causes a reduction in the muscle fiber that is part of the follicle.

The result of this process is lifting the hair. In the common people this phenomenon is called so: the hair stood on end.

The result of muscle contraction is squeezing the hair bulb, as a result of which it is damaged. At the moment, the ability of cells to feed the follicle is lost.

Therefore, a sudden negative emotional outburst causes complete or partial baldness.
