Hair loss is not always a phenomenon of a purely physiological nature as sometimes, at the base of alopecia there could also be factors due to stress. This depends on various situations that affect the human psyche and cause difficulties at the physical level as well as at the psychological one.
When you are faced with such episodes, if you exclude any other type of pathology, then you have to try to work at the psychological level to locate the roots of the situation. There are different causes that lead to stress-based alopecia. You have to conduct a proper self-analysis in order to find the most suitable remedies.
The causes of stress-based alopecia
In a particularly stressful period from a personal, emotional or working point of view, Alopecia areata may appear. The process for which hair loss begins is generated by the pituitary and hypothalamus.
According to some industry studies it would seem that everything is in the way that some corticotropi hormones are synthesized.
In practice, the organism starts to lose control over the synthesis of the substances that compose the hair, such as keratinocytes, fibroblasts, immune cells and sebociti. Often those suffering from stress-based alopecia, also manifests the presence of excess sebum on the scalp.
When you manifest the stress alopecia?
Stress-based alopecia occurs when there are moments of particular anxiety, anguish, depression or shocks of a traumatic nature. Or when someone fails to deal with more or less in-depth psychological problems.
The symptoms of stress-based alopecia occur with a slight hair thinning.
Then, as time goes by, the thinning worsens until it becomes a real pathology. In addition to exogenous factors that derive from situations outside the human body, we also bring the endogenous factors.
This is because stress, anxiety and depression are going to affect the synthesis of these substances that are fundamental to the health of the hair. To try to curb stress-based alopecia you should try to work on yourself. But also investigate along with a specialized doctor in this area, in order to better deal with the problem.
In fact, once manifested, stress-based alopecia should be treated like any other alopecia that has physiological origins and therefore should be cured using existing methods.
