Hair Shows Chronic Stress Levels, Heart Attack Risk – AARP.

Did you know that ongoing high levels of stress not only affect things like your quality of sleep and your blood pressure, but can affect the health of your hair.

If you have thinning hair, consult your doctor for basic blood work to check for vitamins your body may be lacking and to see if your thyroid is functioning properly.  Finally and equally important, check the level of stress in your life.

Depending on the situation such as a death in the family or a divorce, that is easier said than done.  Nevertheless, we can all take steps to reduce stress, such as talking to a close friend, going for a walk, or even taking the time to sit and pet a cat or dog.
