The emotional and psychological impact on hair loss has been well-studied in the past. Some problems associated with hair loss include anxiety, particularly when stress levels increase. Telogen effluvium is an acute type of hair loss that is related to stress. It occurs when hairs are pushed into the telogen phase or the resting phase of the hair cycle prematurely.
