The fact that men suffer from hair loss isn’t exactly newsworthy but discovering the cause of their loss can be life changing. Heredity is usually the culprit, and most men chalk it up to bad genes. What some men don’t realize is that their hair loss isn’t necessarily predetermined by genetics and that stress could be responsible.
Telogen effluvium is a condition triggered by a stressful situation or a traumatic experience like an accident, a severe illness, or an emotional life change. This condition can cause hair to simply stop growing or fall out. In other words, the stress forces hair follicles to sit in the resting phase, which will stop hair growth and eventually the affected hair could be lost months later.
