Yes, stress can contribute to hair loss. Stress has been associated with telogen effluvium, which is a normal “resting” stage of the hair cycle. However, stress can push an inordinate number of hairs into this resting phase during which the hair is thin and susceptible to falling out. This can give the impression of very thin hair. There is also some evidence that alopecia areata and stress are related. Alopecia areata is a condition in which the body’s immune system attacks its own hair. It is usually diagnosed by patches of hair loss all over the scalp that seem to show up randomly and can be treated.
