I’ve recently moved and started a new job and, for a host of other reasons too, I have been under a lot of stress. I also lost about 15 pounds without meaning to at all–the result of stress and not eating well because of stress, I think. I have read in other posts that stress and malnutrition can lead to and enhance the balding process.
My question then is this: will hair lost as the resulnt of stress or malnutrition grow back once my life has returned to normal? Or should I be looking into some sort of medication to stop this?
If your hair loss is genetic (patterned loss) and the stress merely exacerbated it, Propecia could be helpful to you once the stress is controlled. If you don’t have genetic hair loss, the hair could regrow once the stress is under control and/or your nutrition is balanced. There’s no medication to stop hair loss caused by stress.
