When we are stressed, our body release cortisol. Elevated cortisol signals the hair follicle to prematurely shift from growth phase to resting phase. Once the follicle is in resting phase, hair can no longer grow and will eventually shed. Chronic stress can delay or prevent the growth cycle from starting again. It can also disrupt the immune system and hormones, which both play a role in hair growth.
