There are two type of stress which are physical and emotional stress. Physical stress can be caused by traumasurgery, a car accident, or a severe illness. Emotional stress can be caused by a divorce, death of a love ones, loss of a job, getting married, depression, increase in financial obligations, or caring for an aging parent just to name a few. Stress can take a toll on a person and can cause hair loss. When you have a stressful event, it shocks the hair cycle causing the hair to go into telogen phase (fall out stage).
