Anxiety or Stress

Emotional or physical trauma, such as the demise of a pet, a parent or a spouse, or worries about finances, career or relationship can also result in sudden hair loss in women affected by the problems. However, the baldness is temporary in these cases. Once the physical or emotional stress reduces, hair grows back in a normal way in just 3 – 6 months.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulimia, can result in severe mineral and vitamin deficiencies. These can make the body enter a state of shock and make it deficient of nutrients that are vital for development and growth. The physical trauma can be severe enough to cause thinning and falling out of hair. Proper diet, consisting of enough vegetables, fibre, protein and iodine, is essential for reversing damages caused due to eating disorders.

The body can be severely damaged due to an underactive thyroid gland, which can lead to energy drain, weight fluctuations and even hair loss.
