Tiger Woods’ Ex-Wife Lost Hair Through Stress

Elin Nordegren, ex-wife of Tiger Woods, has described how she began losing her hair in the days before her divorce was finalised. The former swimsuit model, who said she had “been through hell” as her ex-husband’s string of infidelities were exposed, suffered insomnia and weight loss as well as losing her hair due to the stress of her marriage break-up.

Severe emotional distress due to traumatic life events such as divorce or bereavement can cause a hair loss condition called telogen effluvium. It appears to affect women more frequently than men, as women are more likely to experience hormonal changes triggered by events such as childbirth, which can precipitate it.

A stressful event can cause some hair follicles to stop growing and enter the telogen or resting phase prematurely. After around three months in the resting phase, the hairs will shed, and this is when the increased hair loss will be noticed. Often the condition is temporary and will correct itself in time, but in some cases hair loss will continue until the underlying issue, for example a hormonal imbalance, is resolved.

With all hair loss conditions, whatever the cause, there is a risk that the problem will get worse if left untreated, so if you have a hair loss concern it is sensible to have your condition diagnosed by an expert. The hair specialists at the Belgravia Centre have a high rate of success in treating most hair loss and scalp problems using clinically proven primary medications along with various hair growth boosters and close trichological monitoring.
