Stress Also Causes Hair Loss! 5 Tips to Improve Telogen Effluvium


Our physical and mental health are both affected by negative emotions and stress. The most significant impact is vasoconstriction, which limits the blood supply to important body parts only and hampers blood circulation in other parts. One of them is the scalp, where poor blood circulation will hinder nutrient absorption and accelerate the shift into the telogen phase in the long run.


The growth cycle of hair is divided into anagen, catagen and telogen. A person normally has 90% of hair in the anagen phase, which lasts for several years. Yet, emotional and stress problems can lead to the early shift from the anagen phase into the catagen and telogen phase, resulting in the inactivity of hair follicles and gradual hair loss.


5 tips to improve telogen effluvium

Practise diaphragmatic breathing

When we are under stress, we will unconsciously breathe rapidly and tense our muscles, causing negative impacts on our physical and mental health. You should therefore practise diaphragmatic breathing. Try to pull your diaphragm downwards, expand your chest cavity and push forwards your abdomen when you inhale; and move your diaphragm upwards, tighten your chest cavity and abdomen when you exhale. Inhaling and exhaling deeply can more effectively relax your body and mind as well as relieve stress.


Exercise to lower stress hormones

Exercising can help our brain release endorphins which can relieve the sense of pain and stress. Exercise 3 to 4 times a week, and your brain will release endorphins regularly after some days. This helps reduce negative emotions and anxiety, relieve stress and therefore hair loss indirectly.


Maintain sufficient sleep

Insufficient sleep not only affects our mental health and skin condition but also triggers hair loss problems. Prolonged insufficient sleep will impact the immune system and cause abnormal hormone production. It may also affect our mental health, triggering symptoms such as irritability, depression and anxiety, etc. Maintaining sufficient sleep can effectively relieve psychological stress and get rid of hair loss problems.


Pay attention to diet and nutrient supply

If you suffer from telogen effluvium, you should pay more attention to your dietary habits to replenish insufficient nutrients. Ensure that your diet contains whole grains, lean meat, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables. The key nutrients to hair growth are protein, vitamin B complex, iron and folic acid. You may try eating more foods with these nutrients!


Care for your hair

You should take good care of every hair strand during the recovery from telogen effluvium. Be gentle with your hair and avoid using hot water when washing your hair. You can also apply an appropriate amount of conditioner and hair care products, and even receive hair care treatments regularly. Effective hair care treatments can keep your scalp clean and supply rich nutrients to the scalp and hair to get out of the telogen phase fast.
