Here’s Why Stress Can Cause Hair Fall and What to Do About It
Don’t let stress get in the way of your confidence—let’s examine how Cream Silk can strengthen your hair with its new Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner
Our hair shapes who we are. It gives us our identity, it gives us confidence as it makes us look and feel beautiful. Inevitably, anything that could affect the quality of our locks creates a domino effect—we stop looking in the mirror, we start tying our hair up in a bun, we fret about our new look.
While a few stray hairs on your brush that form part of 50-100 hair strands per day are normal (and barely noticeable), shedding more hair than usual should already ring the alarm bells.
This medical condition is known as telogen effluvium, where different forms of stress “cause hair roots to be pushed prematurely into the resting stage.” There is usually a trigger for this, a point where there is shock to the system, and this can be from disease, childbirth, infection, chronic illness, major surgery, or psychological stress.
Once hair enters the resting period, there is no regeneration, the cells are inactive. In fact, in a recent study published in Nature Magazine, mild stress increased cortiscosterone levels and reduced hair growth. So it works both ways: Stress can cause hair fall, and stress can cause hair to stop growing as well.
There are clues in knowing you’re experiencing hair fall. First, there would be an increase in the number of strands on your brush or clogging your drain. You’ll also notice that there are areas that are thinning, so much so that you’d see more scalp than hair. Finally, your hair part might show more scalp area when you check your hair part.
Once you’ve determined that you might actually have hair fall, then it’s time to change up your routine with the NEW Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner.
This ultra conditioner gives three benefits from keratin products—keratin relaxers to tame frizzy hair, keratin serum to revive hair from intense damage and breakage, and keratin essence to help strengthen hair. It has revolutionary fiber actives that can strengthen each strand at a cellular level, making hair up to 3x stronger, and ultimately break-resistant.
With daily use, the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner can add strength to your locks. This power product is available in two bottle sizes—340mL and 170mL, as well as a 10mL sachet.
Plus, you can also add the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Treatment Shot (12ML) in your beauty regimen to strengthen your hair even further. It can also protect hair from extreme hair fall factors that come with styling such as heat and product use. To get the best results, use this treatment shot once a week, after shampooing and conditioning your hair.
All in all, while hair fall might be something you will stress about, you have the power to change your hair's fate. With the right attitude and the right products, you can likewise create a positive domino effect that will take you from stressed to strength. Keep your head up and face this challenge head-on!
