Hair Loss, Stress and Coronavirus

Hair follicles in your head are affected by stress. It means when your cortisol is high, your hair follicle can shed faster. Hair follicle goes through stages where you grow hair and you have a resting phase and you have a shedding phase. Cortisol can push you into the resting phase where there is no growth phase for many months. Research shows that it can continue for three months or more. Therefore, just keep that in mind if you're struggling right now and especially with the Coronavirus pandemic, this is an extremely stressful time. You are not alone with hair loss. It's cortisol related so you have to address the stress. Right now, it's just how you cope with stress and how you take care of yourself with affect hair growth. If you're feeling anxious, then start journaling or meditating or talking it out with a friend or family member or significant other. I find that Rosemary and peppermint teas to drink are ideal during stressful times. Also, Rosemary, peppermint spearmint, eucalyptus can be used to stimulate your scalp. You can mix it with castor oil. You can do a prewash massage and then pour your shampoo in your hand and you put a couple of drops in and mix. Be careful and don't burn your scalp or make it too tingly. Make a hair mask then leave it in your hair for 20 minutes, breathe and relax.
