The first killer – Stress
Severe physical and emotional stress can cause hair loss, even worse some women suffered hair loss overnight regardless of if she generically suffers hair loss. This type of hair loss in women only lasts temporarily. Once the feeling of stress has gone, the lost hair will grow back, however it takes at least 6 months to see the signs. If a woman has the hereditary hair loss gene, the process will be accelerated even worse on top of the stress.
The severe stress includes a loss of partners, intensive sports training, severe illness, medication treatment as well as emotional stress. In the period of stress, the body is unable to provide sufficient nutrients to grow hair because the nutrients have been devoted to the healing of other body parts or the body system has shut down to produce any nutrients required for hair growth. If women want to have thick and shiny hair, they must have a peaceful mind, at least don’t stress yourselves.
