Hair Loss and Trauma


When your brain becomes anxious the blood circulation system becomes disturbed which leads to lack of nutrients to hair follicles. Trauma is not permanent so the effect of it will not be permanent. But it will take time to be normal. If you face any heavy shock or mental stress then you hair fall may last up to 3. This period is very crucial so you have to take care your hair properly.


Our hair grows through three stages. These three stages helps to grow hair normally. But due to mental condition the duration and condition of these three stages may be disturbed. In the first stage, which is called anagen stage hair grows. This stage last for three to seven years for each hair shaft. The next stage is Catagen; during this stage hair growing stops and hair follicles becomes shrink. In the last and final stage named Telogen, hair falls and new hair starts to grow. Telogen stage last for 100 days.


But trauma mess all these stages. At the time of trauma anagen phase becomes shorter. So normal hair growth stage is hindered. On the other side Catagen and Telogen phase becomes longer for some hair shaft. So hair shedding becomes more than normal.


Not any particular accident create trauma but some surgery or medication also may cause trauma. So whatever the reason or form of trauma it will cause hair loss somehow. To control hair loss you have to control you mental stress and trauma. Although no one can say when an accident will take place? But you have to be aware about how to control ad minimize shock.
