The Link Between Depression and Hair Loss

With more than a quarter of the UK population suffering from mental illness, the link between depression and hair loss can no longer be ignored.

Many people are confused by how the symptoms of depression manifest in both physical and psychological ways.

Depression and Hair Loss

The side effects of depression such as weight loss/gain or a poor diet without the necessary nutrients and vitamins can also cause hair to fall out as the body is placed under excessive pressure.

Prolonged use of certain types of anti-depressants can also lead to hair loss. It’s a catch 22 as the stress and embarrassment of losing your hair can exacerbate symptoms of depression and cause sufferers to become more withdrawn from daily life.
