How to Treat Hair Loss From Stress – Try These Treatments!

Hair loss has many causes, including stress. But stress-related hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent. Once your situation improves, stress-related hair loss usually stops, and hair will begin to regrow on its own.

Led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Pramit Malhotra, the hair restoration experts at Balance Hair Restoration have gathered six tips to help you get back on track after stress-related hair loss.

1. Eat a Healthy Diet

Everyone knows a balanced diet is good for your entire body, including your hair. Be sure to include plenty of nutrient-dense fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

When regaining hair after stress-related loss, protein is especially vital. As hair is primarily protein, incorporate plenty of lean proteins, like chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, and soy, into your diet.

Along with your healthy diet, don’t skip your vitamins. The best vitamins for hair growth contain vitamins A, B, C, D, plus biotin, iron, and keratin to help restore and maintain your metabolism, immune and nervous system functions.

2. Try Topical Treatments

Vitamins and a healthy diet promote hair growth from within, and a topical treatment can help encourage hair growth from outside. After stress-related hair loss, a daily hair serum can improve scalp health to stimulate regrowth.

3. Improve Your Sleep Hygiene

Stress can disrupt your regular sleep patterns and may give you chronic insomnia in the worst-case scenario. Aim for seven to nine hours of restful sleep per night and practice a healthy sleep routine.

4. Manage Your Stress

Since you can only reverse stress-related hair loss by addressing the source of your stress, try some techniques to balance your mood and keep anxiety under control. Here are some ideas:

5. Change up Your Products

Another way to regrow hair after stress-related loss is using specially formulated shampoo. Many varieties keep your hair and scalp clean, while rejuvenating individual hair strands.

Use styling products to create the appearance of fuller hair while your hair follicles are still recovering. Find formulas that deliver volume to revive flat, dull-looking hair while encouraging scalp health and hair growth.

6. Massage Your Scalp

Encourage scalp health through massage. Gently rubbing your scalp for five to 10 minutes per day can enhance circulation and strengthen hair follicles, promoting hair growth. You can use a scalp massage brush or opt for a traditional massage using your fingertips.
