Are related the nervous, hair loss and the Covid-19?
The health of our hair is closely related to our mood, this is a proven fact. In fact, there are people who watch their hair fall out in times of special stress or anxiety.
Our state of anxiety and nerves is being highly increased during the mandatory confinement that we are suffering by Covid-19; not only influences the anguish of being or not infected by this virus, but the fact of suffering a prolonged confinement, without being able to go out, have children at home, the uncertainty of what will happen in the next future and a long list of questions, makes this state of nerves, anxiety and permanent anguish cause the inevitable: Hair Loss due to Nerves and / or Stress or Nervous Alopecia
What is alopecia nervosa? What causes it?
Hair loss can be due to many causes, it can be due to lack of food, genetics, iron problems in women, fevers,…Among these causes there are also people who lose their hair due to a moment of anxiety, stress or depression. When the body suffers a strong feeling of anxiety, it sometimes reacts by letting the hair fall temporarily.
It's something temporary? Does that hair that falls out grow again?
Indeed, alopecia nervosa is a very acute temporary hair loss that usually lasts a few months and, once the anxiety problem is overcome, the hair is reborn.
This occurs as long as there is no underlying autoimmune disease (alopecia areata) or that the state of nerves, stress or anxiety does not last over time. In this case, a topical treatment should be used to make the hair come out again.
How do we know it is alopecia nervosa, androgenetics, or areata?
There are some basic differences:
–Androgenetic alopecia occurs over several years, in which the hair is literally miniaturized, remains weak and falls out little by little.
–Alopecia areata has an inherited genetic factor. It differs in that roughly coin-sized calvites appear that, if left untreated, can form large plaques.
-In alopecia nervosa the hair falls out in a diffuse and homogeneous way in a matter of 8 or 10 days in which the personal stress is greater, after which the hair is born again on its own (although it may not recover in its entirety ). But if a person suffering from alopecia areata disease has alopecia nervosa at one point in his life, this would also manifest with calvites and should be treated as areata (with topical products).
Is there any treatment that can stop this type of fall?
Alopecia nervosa is best treated from two points: the psychotherapeutic point of view, trying to calm the patient emotionally, and the therapeutic point of view with the help of hair treatments since, the hair may not reappear on its own when the nervous problem or at least not entirely.
Any special shampoo or any specific treatment?
The application of our dermo-trichological treatments can be good. For example, our Prevention Hair Loss and Hair Nutrients Royal Jelly shampoos can help, and then use the DX2 Dixidox Treatment, combined with a vitamin supplement. Afterwards, when the hair is reborn, it would be advisable to use a treatment based on amino acids and hair growth enhancers on the scalp to give it the strength and shine it had before falling, for this our CAPILLARY CELLULAR THERAPY is ideal.
