It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

Mental Health and Hair Loss

Mental Health and Hair Loss

It can be something of a vicious circle: you are suffering from depression, sadness, stress, anxiety. You notice you are losing some hair. The hair loss makes you depressed, anxious, stressed-out and sad. Is there a medical relationship between your mental health and hair loss?


Depression can affect the quality of hair by reducing the hair growth phase by making our hair dry and brittle. What’s more, the drugs prescribed to treat depression, such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) like Prozac, have hair loss as a side effect.


Anxiety is a persistent stress that lasts a long time. It can trigger trichotillomania, where people pull out their hair without being aware of it. The effect is patches of lost hair.


Stress is the most likely condition to trigger hair loss, along with hormones, aging and genetic factors. Stress can significantly slow or stunt the normal growth cycle of your hair. Once the growth cycle is stunted, it will shed the hair after about 60 days. The most common type of stress-related hair loss is called telogen effluvium. However, hair may grow back after the stress factors have been removed from your life.

Anxiety and stress are impermanent states that may get better with time. Depression, however, can be chronic and can require years of treatment. Is there a hair loss treatment that can mediate hair loss as a person with depression is getting treatment, one that makes them more confident when they go out in public?
