How To Cope With The Stress Of Your Hair Loss

Hair Loss Stress

When you notice the first signs of hair loss, it can cause a lot of mixed emotions. It is common to feel a sense of panic and a loss of self-confidence. Trying to figure out the best way to deal with your hair loss can be a difficult situation. The worst part of hair loss is that the more stressed you get about your hair loss, the greater the risk is of your hair loss accelerating. Stress is one of the most common accelerators of hair loss. The best way to deal with this issue is to develop some coping mechanisms and techniques to help you reduce your stress levels.

Get A Professional Assessment From A Medical Professional

When you start to notice that you are losing hair, it’s always important to get a professional opinion from a hair restoration professional. Although you may be going through a stressful period of time and think that your hair loss is being caused by stress, it is best to make sure that there are no underlying issues that may actually be the cause of your hair loss.

There are many things that could cause hair loss, most commonly a genetic and inherited form of hair loss called androgenetic alopecia (usually called male or female pattern baldness), so it is always best to talk to a professional before you plan any hair restoration procedures or treatments.

How To Cope With The Stress Of Your Hair Loss


Take a day or two to really think about hair restoration strategies and enjoy a bit of relaxation. This could include a day at the spa or even just relaxing with your family and discussing options. Taking this time to rest while thinking over options will help lower your stress levels. This in turn can have a positive effect on your hair loss, help your sleep patterns, and even reduce tension in your body.

Exercise More

Exercise is a great way to lower stress, so upping your exercise to a few times per week will help you keep fit and keep stress levels low. Exercise is also a great way to take your mind off your problems and worries. To feel the positive effects of exercise, take up a sport as a hobby or simply get a gym membership and jump on the treadmill for a quick run.

Grow Your Hair Longer

If you usually keep your hair short and have started to notice hair loss due to stress, try growing your hair out. Long hair works well to hide the areas that have the most hair loss. Longer hair is also more versatile, so it will allow you more options of how to style it. Another tip is to blow-dry your hair when styling it. Wet hair or slick hair will look thinner then it actually is.
