Anxiety and telogen effluvium
Although both terms are often used as synonyms, they are not the same. Anxiety is a form of emotional expression in which the person is affected by an exaggerated feeling of uneasiness with great concern or fear, but it is an imaginary situation, a suggestion, because it is often not possible to identify the factors or causes that have provoked it. Stress however is caused by different types of situations relevant to the individual (threat, danger, loss of a loved one among other causes) all of which are objective, real situations. Hair loss in this case can become very serious, this type of hair loss is called telogen effluvium. The hair can begin to fall out in clumps while shampooing, combing or simply passing the hand through the hair and that will increase the state of anxiety for the person who suffers from it.
