Stress uses up valuable nutrients such as the B vitamins, a lack of which will have a knock-on effect on hair growth. Stress also causes scalp tension, which tightens the follicles and may cause shedding, and which restricts the amount of oxygen and other nutrients being delivered to the scalp in the bloodstream.
A solution would be to use gentle head massage, get plenty of fresh air and exercise to stimulate your circulatory system, and to address the stress itself. If the causes of stress cannot be avoided, use fresh herb tincture complexes containing Passiflora, Valerian or Hypericum to calm your nervous system. Take a vitamin B complex if you think the stress will be long term.
Remember that when we are stressed our digestive system doesn’t work as well, so try to relax when eating, and chew your food thoroughly.
