Can your Crappy relationship be causing hair loss?

I think it is safe to say that we have all experience a bad relationship. I know what your thinking but honestly this piece is more than just the senseless couple fights that stress us out!!!! I mean seriously does he have to answer every phone call? Wait yes he does he is my manager. Ok ok I have digressed. Did you know that relationships in general take a toll on our mental health and then our physical? Good relationships are the leading cause of successful environments . But what happens when the relationship is super uber draining? This takes a toll on your mental health and on your Physical . Is it time to really take a look at your hair and determine wether it is naturally shedding or your hair is alarmingly falling out? Well, lets consider relationships beyond a partner how about your relationship with social media, extreme diets, food, hair products and many more other relationships. That can cause stress and hair loss.

Izamar Rivera Diaz , a psychologist who works in the field of human interactions and relationships and our in house CurlPop Psychologist, says “everything in life is about balance and knowledge. If someone is dependant on the other person’s opinion and value they can be left very unstable. All stressful or negative relationships will always lead to a loss in many things including hair loss.”

The difference between hair shedding and hair loss is not the same per se . Curly girls don’t brush their hair often so the natural daily shedding doesn’t complete its full ability to leave the head of hair. It may shed from the scalp but not loosen up from the strands . This may be alarming when you see a ball of shedded hair but don’t be alarmed that’s natural . Alarming hair loss? It’s when there is a bald spot diameter of an 1/8 or larger. A Patch of hair missing is now the time to be alarmed and the time to consider your relationships. This would be the time to introduce a great relationship between you an MD and my favourite a Trichologist. A hairdresser can only do so much. And while we study anatomy during hair school, reality is we don’t specialise in the medical world.

A relationship that is going in so many different directions may lead to an “I don’t care about anything it’s not going to matter anyways” kind of mindset. While you maybe spending time in this type of relationship, your stress levels and lack of care can push your hair follicles into a resting phase. Causing hair loss . So just as giving into and giving up and putting up with a not so great relationship your hair follicles also can give up and sometimes give in to a not so great phase .  TELOGEN-EFFLUVIUM  (side note this does not mean go ahead and break away from a relationship. It just means you have to take a healthier approach)

Telogen-effluvium happens when a high amount of stress pushes a large number of follicles into a resting phase .These affected hairs can all of a sudden fall out when brushing or finger combing your hair. Especially when washing it .

Don’t stress out about Telogen Effluvium. Even though the American Association of hair loss says it’s the second most common form of hair loss it can be reversed. This will require a replacement of essential nutrients either by supplements or food. FYI avocados help grow out your hair faster.

Take a look at your relationship with social media. Is it a healthy one? Or do you find yourself stressed out because your hair or your life doesn’t appear as amazing as what you are looking at? This is called the “COMPARE AND DESPAIR FACTOR”. While this leads to many anxieties , I want to talk about the stress of it leading to fear of personal failure , feeling of self consciousness or an unhealthy relationship with yourself needing perfectionism . Also hair loss because it’s stressful.

Which can also lead to  TRICHOTILLOMANIA . This particular hair loss is one that needs the assistance of your physical hand movements . It is the irresistible urge to pull out hair from your scalp and also your eyebrows or other places where hair is on the body. It becomes a way of dealing with stress or many uncomfortable feelings such as loneliness, tension or simply being bored. I reached out to our in house pshycologist, Izmar D., as I am seeing more and more guests sitting in my chair with this particular scalp condition . She proceeded to tell me this is not something that should be taken lightly. It’s a serious thing and can lead to other serious issues. As an example, self esteem issues. So, right about now your eyes are wide open and thinking “wait I don’t have that issue” While that may be true, ask yourself if you bite your nails or pick at your skin. those are signs of stress and anxiety and that there is something wrong as well. If you read this and you identify with Trichotillomania and you said “ I can stop any time” just know that you can stop when you get proper treatment. Seeing the right expert for this is very important. Your MD. should refer you to one.
