The Effects of Stress

Effects of Stress

Stress can have many effects on a person. It can affect the health of your body, hair, and mood in various ways. You may not notice some of the effects of stress until later after the situation may have already been resolved, but the effects of that stress could have already manifested itself in the body and hair. Make sure to take the time to rest and learn coping skills that will help you through stressful times in your life.


Have you ever noticed your hair shedding more than normal? As you prep your hair for a delightful day, you notice excessive amounts of hair in the comb and on the bathroom sink. You wonder whats going on and began to panic. Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors. One of them is stress. It can cause the hair to break in enormous amounts. Hair loss caused by stress can be from pressure that occurred months before the hair loss began. 

 You may not be worried about anything right now, but think back. Did you go through a financial problem, a divorce, death, or any other stressful situation? If so, that may be the cause of your hair loss. Stress can make an enormous amount of hair follicles go into a resting phase earlier than normal. That stage is called Telogen effluvium. 


Stress does not only effect the hair, but it also can cause the body to be tired and worn out. You don't feel like doing anything. You are just worn out. As tension builds up, you are aggravated, which puts more stress on you. It can cause many things in a person life.

Stress can cause:

  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • headaches
  • anxiety
  • Muscles Tension
  • Chest Pain
  • Upset stomach
According to Healthline,
"Under stress, your liver produces extra blood sugar (glucose) to give you a boost of energy. If you’re under chronic stress, your body may not be able to keep up with this extra glucose surge. Chronic stress may increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes."

Acute stress

Short-term stress can cause your heart beat to increase to a rapid speed. Adrenaline acts as a messenger to increases the heart rate. It increases the amount of blood and elevates the blood pressure.

 You become anxious and go into fight or flight mode. According to Dr. Neil - MD,
The "fight or flight response" is our body's primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to "fight" or "flee" from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.
Things that causes short term stress are:

  • the pressures of  a business meeting
  •  trying not to be late for school or work 
  • avoiding an accident

Now that you know some effects of stress on your body and hair, try some of these coping skill to help with Stress and Hair Loss. Have an awesome and stress free day!
