Adrenal Glands, Stress Hormones, and Hair Loss

Stress is a necessary evil. Without stress, human beings would lack the motivation to perform a number of essential (and often pleasurable) activities. Things like social interaction, vocational performance, and physical exercise all require stress to trigger activity in some way. Prolonged periods of stress can be very detrimental to overall health, however. Stress triggers increases in certain hormones, like cortisol, that can negatively impact the body when produced for days, weeks, or months without rest. According to the American Hair Loss Association, prolonged periods of stress appear to change the biochemistry of the hair follicle, often resulting in thinning or total loss of hair.
