Stress is Causing Hair Loss in Many Women
Stress is causing 37 percent of women over the age of 25 to suffer from hair loss. Many speculate that the stress is caused by pressure to stay thin.
Researchers also believe that because people only expect hair loss in women to occur in old age, the hair loss itself induces more stress, which accelerates the hair loss. Hair loss also causes depression in one third of women.
The pressure on women to stay thin may also be resulting in nutritional deficiencies as women eat less than their bodies require. In some cases the cause of hair loss may be a medical condition, chemotherapy, or a genetic predisposition.
Hair loss can be devastating to a woman, since hair is associated with femininity. Thinning hair or balding often makes a woman feel as if she is being robbed of her womanhood. The best thing women can do to avoid hair loss is to avoid excessive stress, not worry too much about their weight and make sure to get the proper daily nutritional requirements.
