Alopecia Stress - Causes, Symptoms and Cures

Apr 4, 2008
What is Alopecia? Alopecia is generally considered a lack of hair or loss of hair from areas on the body which normally contain hair. Most commonly alopecia affects the scalp area, leaving people either partially or fully bald. Alopecia can occur at any age and in general it affects about 1% of the population.

The Various Forms of Alopecia. There are several different types of Alopecia. I have included just a small few below for your information: Alopecia Areata - hair loss occurring in patches anywhere on the body. Alopecia Totalis - total loss of hair on the head. Alopecia Barbae - when facial hair is lost (affects men). Alopecia Universalis - total loss of hair from the body. These are just a few of the different types of Alopecia, the others I will not list here.

The way in which Stress Causes Alopecia. Normally we all lose 30 to 200 strands of hair every day, when we are in a healthy state. Depending on a few different factors this number can change dramatically. Stress is the number one cause of alopecia but there are other causes. Alopecia can be caused by either emotional stress of physical stress or both. Stress factors such as over training or god forbid losing a loved one can cause stress related alopecia. Stress related alopecia is just the body's way of handling the stress. Your body is too busy dealing with the stress to have time to produce hair so shuts down hair production.

Stress and Alopecia - a Vicious Cycle. It really is a cycle when it comes to stress and alopecia. The stress brings on the alopecia and then you start stressing about the alopecia which can make the problem worse. The more stressed you get the more hair you lose and so on.

Stress and Alopecia - How do you manage them both? What is the solution? Remember that you're not alone. There are many thousands of people who suffer from alopecia caused by stress all over the world. There are treatments that work for alopecia. If you start using these treatments every day you will, in time, get you're your hair back. Yes, I said in time, unfortunately these alopecia treatments can take time to work, so be patient. You will also need to ensure you look at managing and treating the stress which caused the alopecia if it doesn't subside on its own.
