Stress And Anxiety For Hair Loss

It has been said that stress can make you go gray, or cause you to lose your hair. But can it?

"Stress because you're late to work or you've got a heavy workload is not going to cause you to lose hair," she says.

"Something that causes you to lose sleep," Mirmirani says, "or changes your appetite and raises the level of stress hormones."
