Stress and thinning hair Among the laundry list of reasons for hair loss is … stress. "Stress can lead to extra hair fall," says Kingsley. It does not weaken the hair per se, it just causes the hair follicles to release the hairs prematurely. If we just relax then we'll keep our hair in tact, right? Well, "it is easy to say 'stop being stressed', but this is much more difficult than it sounds, and the more you worry about it, the worse it is likely to become," he adds. So how can we counteract this? Kingsley suggests getting more sleep, taking vitamin B supplements and using an intensive scalp treatment. Maintaining a healthy scalp will always improve the quality of your hair -- look for one that is stimulating to improve hair growth, texture and behavior. Try Philip Kingsley Scalp Mask, $6.25 into the scalp every two to three days before shampooing.
