Does This Explain Your Hair Loss?
Stressed? Even if you aren't pulling your hair out over it, your luscious locks might suffer. A new study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found a connection between stressful life experiences and alopecia (hair loss), which affects 40% of women.
When researchers examined nearly 100 sets of female twins, they found that those who had a history of divorce, diabetes, smoking, and hypertension were more likely to suffer from hair loss. The same was true for women with higher incomes, more children, and greater levels of overall stress.
“The increased stress brought on by remarriage, divorce, and multiple children can all lead to increased hairline recession and thinning in women,” write the study authors in their report. “Higher income may also be associated with higher stress caused by more demanding jobs and longer hours.” And since these researchers looked attwins, their investigation also indicates that genetics aren't always at play where hair loss is concerned.
Fortunately, you can take steps to maintain your mane: Slash stress with these 2-minute solutions and treat locks with products containing essential oils—like L’Occitane’s Aromachologie Soothing Shampoo. To prevent hair loss, treatment with thyme, rosemary, lavender, and cedar wood, combined with carrier oils, was more effective than a solution of carrier oils alone, according to a recent Scottish study.
