Is your hair falling regularly ? In other words, are you slowly becoming completely bald ? If the answer is yes, the most probable reason can be stress. Stress and hair loss has a strong relation for long time. Research has shown that stress not only causes hair loss, but can also lead to complete baldness. Let’s find out how and how dangerous stress is for hair.
How stress and hair loss are related ?
Now-a-days, very high percentage of people complain of hair loss. Surprisingly young people contribute a large share of this high percentage. One might think that it is difficult to understand the exact reason behind this. But it is not so. In today’s fast paced life, we have come to a situation where there is no definite time to sleep. Besides, there is always the fear of falling behind. All of these factors lead to stress.
There has been a debate for many years about whether stress and hair loss are related. Recent research by a leading university has sealed the deal. According to researchers, stress indirectly affects the sleep. This not only causes hair loss, but also affect new hair growth adversely. This means that if your hair is falling out due to stress, you may soon fall out.
Case of hair loss and growth
Everyone has their own story about hair loss and skin problems. Whether stress is really responsible for hair loss, was under debate for long time. Researchers at a leading University conducted a thorough investigation. This examination showed that the problem can be understood deeply through the skin issues. During the research, the researchers found that stress not only takes time to activate stem cells, but also affects the hair follicles. This adds weight to the claim that stress and hair loss are related.
The root cause
For decades, researchers conducted an experiment on the adrenal glands to guide the discussion of hair loss. The stress hormone ‘corticosterone’ is released into the body by the adrenal glands? It also causes hair to fall out faster. To find out more, additional research was done on rats. In this experiment, only the adrenal glands were surgically removed from rats. It was later found that the resting phase in rats lasts for a very short time and then hair growth begins. But when these rats were given a small dose of corticosterone, it slowed down their hair growth rate.
Second experiment and results
A second experiment was performed to get the exact result. In this experiment, some healthy rats were kept for nine weeks and given doses of corticosterone. After this dose, it was found that the resting phase of these rats began to go too far. At the same time, her hair growth stopped completely. In this study, researchers found that there is also a type of dermal papillae cell beneath the hair follicle, which causes the stress hormone to stick. This completely stops hair growth. So that the follicle resting phase does not last long and hair loss begins.
The mathematics of hair growth
Now if you want to understand the mathematics of hair growth in simple words, let me tell you that the whole cycle of hair follicles is divided into different parts. In the first part of this, the hair keeps coming back. The resting phase is in the second phase, during which the hair stays in the same position as it was before the hair fell out and no new hair grows at this stage. This is followed by the last part, in which the follicles in their lower part begin to shrink before the hair falls out.
