As I read emails, and speak to individuals that have reached out to me regarding their hair loss. I’m finding that there is a common denominator, when it comes to the question.

Why is my hair falling out? Why am I losing my hair? The common link is stress! Stress induced Alopecia and or hair loss. When I began to ask various questions as to what was going on in their life when they first noticed a change in their hair? The majority of the people said it was stress.

Stress can be defined as the brain’s response to any demand. Many things can trigger this response, including change. Changes can be positive or negative. Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way.

When our bodies sense danger, whether it’s real or imagined, the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid automatic process known as the “flight or fight or freeze” reaction or stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting itself.

As I journeyed with Alopecia, I later realized that I was dealing with a lot stress in my life. I had stressed induced Alopecia hair loss. Stress is a silent killer. Most of the time we don’t realize we are under stress or the impact it has on our bodies until it’s too late.

We have to slow down and breathe. We have to be aware of what’s going on around us that can cause silent stress. We have to take care of ourselves! We only get one dress rehearsal with our lives!

After we have identified the stress in our lives, we need to improve our self- image and self- love. We have to become a priority!

These are a few examples of how we can empower our- selves as a human being and as a person living with hair loss.

  • Forgive yourself
  • Be kind and positive to yourself
  • Eliminate self-criticism
  • Fall in love with yourself
  • Let go of worry
  • Trust yourself

Learning how to love ourselves and identify the stress in our lives, starts with a conscious decision and intention to become happy and lead a fulfilled life. Hair loss is a traumatic life altering event. We have to get too the root of what is causing it and start from there. No matter what happens in our lives we need to understand weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning!

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
