Is the economic downturn behind a rise in hair loss?

Economic Downturn and Hair Loss The Belgravia CentreWe now live in an age of austerity; markets the world over are still recovering from the economic downturn, and with the Eurozone now in dire straits, unemployment is higher than it has been for many years. Combined with increased levels of debt and uncertainty, a great many people are experiencing rising levels of stress. Although the economic impact of this situation is widely understood, it seems that these heightened levels of stress in Britain at present are also causing some people to experience hair loss.

Hair is not austerity-proof

According to hair loss expert Leonora Doclis, “stress can be a significant contributing factor in common forms of hair loss such as Male Pattern Baldness. As everybody knows, stress is not healthy and when it comes to hair loss it can trigger or significantly speed up the problem in men and women”.

Long hours and concern over possible redundancy can cause stress, which can manifest itself in increased hair shedding; which in turn can lead to anything from complete complete baldness or general thinning. There are a number of conditions that can be caused accelerated by stress including Genetic (Male or Female Pattern) Hair Loss or Alopecia Areata in the case of both men and women. Telogen Effluvium however, is a condition much more common amongst women.

Tips to boost hair health

Removing the source of stress is of  course very important, but there are specific things that you can do to help your hair withstand the effects of stress. These include washing hair daily, rinsing in cold water, allowing your hair to dry naturally, eating well and choosing a less rigid brush. However, the most important piece of advice is to seek help from a trained professional, who can discuss and implement the best methods to help restore your scalp to a healthy state. It is with this final point that The Belgravia Centre can help.
