Having a bad hair day really can affect your mood and confidence. It’s hard to put your best foot forward when you feel like your tresses are a mess!

You might already know that stress can disrupt sleep and upset your stomach, but did you realize it can literally make your hair fall out?

This is because hormones levels change with stress, which can cause hair loss in women, along with other scalp issues like dandruff. So, if you find yourself losing hair rapidly, or notice a lack of hair volume and thinning areas that expose more of your scalp, it could be caused by stress. But there are a lot of other potential triggers, so you may need professional help to figure out the cause of hair loss and to address your thinning hair issues.

Here are some of the issues that could potentially be going on.

Reactive Hair Loss

This type of hair loss happens due to some type of a trigger or an imbalance like severe stress, extreme dieting, illness, or a deficiency. If you are experiencing sudden hair loss or thinning, please do not hesitate to consult a physician. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (or PCOS) is a hormonal condition with a wide range of symptoms, including hair loss, which frequently goes undiagnosed. Some other common conditions that may cause excess shedding or reactive hair loss can include:

• Childbirth
• Aging and menopause
• Anemia or lack of iron
• Vitamin B12 deficiency
• Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism
• Dramatic weight loss

Genetic Hair Loss

If your relatives have thinning hair or bald heads, chances are good that those genes may have been passed on to you. While genetics play a big role in hair loss, women do lose hair differently than men. Men tend to develop male-pattern baldness. As a woman you might notice a loss of volume in your hair or develop sparse or thin patches, with the scalp becoming more visible in certain areas. This is due to hair follicles shrinking and producing finer hair strands.

Without a doubt, hair loss can be emotionally devastating – even though it is very common – with about one of every three ladies experiencing it sometime in their life. At Cysterwigs, we want you to feel confident and fabulous, even on the worst of hair days.
