Holiday Stress and Hair Loss
Holiday Stress and Hair Loss
There are many factores that can cause hair loss. The most common is hereditary, but emotional stress can also contribute to temporary or permanent hair loss. With the stress of holiday season, many may notice their hair falling off. It is important to know that hair loss caused by stress is usually temporary, but if the stress continues it may lead to permanent hair loss.
Emotional and psychological impact on hair loss has been clearly studied in the past. Some problems associated with hair loss includes anxiety, and usually around holiday season, the stress level increases. While this season is meant to bring feelings of love and cheer, it’s also the start of holiday stress for many people. In fact, according to recent polls many find the holiday season to be ‘somewhat’ or ‘very’ stressful. Too much stress can effect one both mentally and physically. Too many activities, shopping, and holiday events even if they are fun activities, can culminate in too much holiday stress and leave us feeling frazzled, rather than fulfilled.
The great thing about holiday stress is that it’s predictable. Unlike many other types of negative stress we encounter in life, we know when holiday stress will begin and end, and we can make plans to reduce the amount of stress we experience and the negative impact it has on us. Usually the hair loss that is associated with holiday season can be temporary, therefore the hair will grow back once is stress is relieved. However, there are some cases where the temporary hair loss can lead to permanent hair loss.
In case of permanent hair loss caused by stress, it is best to see hair restoration specialist to get evaluated and find out about hair loss treatment options. The physician should conduct diagnostic examinations and tests to establish the cause for hair loss first and its temporary or permanent condition and discuss the best treatment options. Hair restoration specialist should take great care to design a treatment program that will create the optimal results for the patient. while hair transplant can restore the hair loss, in many cases hair loss doctor may recommend medical hair treatment initially. it is important to have realistic expectations about the results of medical hair treatment options without treating the cause of stress itself.
