Stress may play a role in hair loss, but there are many other triggers

Research on mice and human hair that has been grown in laboratories seems to show that stress may play a role in two specific kinds of hair loss: telogen effluvium and alopecia areata . The first, telogen effluvium, is the more common of the two. This type of hair loss involves shedding hair faster than normal from all over your head. It typically does not lead to baldness, but your hair does become thinner than usual. Telogen effluvium has been linked to a range of triggers, and some of them do involve stress.

Hair Loss Prevention 101

Although this can definitely cause hair loss, it is usually the cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation (anagen effluvium), that causes the hair loss and not the cancer itself. Telogen effluvium is another classic cause of hair loss in children, but this condition is often poorly understood by parents. Children with telogen effluvium have often had a recent illness, typically with a high fever, surgery, sudden weight loss, or even an emotional stress, and then suddenly lose a lot of hair about six weeks to three months later. Children with telogen effluvium continue to lose hair, often in large clumps for a few weeks or months, to the point that their hair may be noticeably thin. But then their hair begins to grow again in about six months without any treatments.
