Increased Shedding: Experiencing higher than usual hair shedding, noticing more hair in your shower drain, on your pillow, or when you brush your hair.
Thinning at the Crown: Hair thinning or noticeable widening of the part line, particularly at the crown of the head, can be a sign of stress-induced hair loss.
Sudden Hair Loss: If you experience a sudden and significant loss of hair within a short period, stress could be a contributing factor.
Changes in Texture: Stress-related hair loss may lead to changes in hair texture, such as hair becoming finer, weaker, or more prone to breakage.
Visible Scalp: Increased visibility of the scalp due to thinning hair, especially around the temples and frontal hairline, may indicate stress-related hair thinning.
Stressful Life Events: Hair thinning that coincides with major life stressors like a traumatic event, significant life changes, or prolonged periods of high stress could be a sign of a connection.
Lack of Regrowth: If you notice that areas of thinning hair are not regrowing as they typically would, stress might be inhibiting the natural hair growth cycle.
