Why is it that when I'm stressed my hair seems thinner than usual like I'm about to get bald?
Answer by Nature Crazy:
Stress and anxiety play a significant role in thinning hair loss and often goes overlooked. The simplest way to look at it is the more stressed you are the more cortisol rises, and everything become more sensitive with respect to androgen receptors. Inflammation becomes harder to combat, and a slurry of defenses are left unchecked and of little help against normal inflammation. The first step is to get your cortisol levels under control. Supplementing with Ashwaganda on a daily basis can help bring the cortisol levels down until you are able to get the stress levels under control.
