Women who have to deal with divorce may find themselves losing hair, a new research suggests.
The lifestyle of 84 female identical twins was studied. The team also tested their hormone blood level and analyzed photos of their hair.
The study found the strongest predictor of central hair loss among women is their marital status, other than genetics.
Study author Dr. Bahman Guyuron, chairman of the department of plastic surgery at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, said most likely, stress is the aspect of a troubling divorce that appears to lead to hair loss among women.
Excessive drinking or smoking also boosts the risk for hair loss among women, said researchers.
Those found to have the lowest risk of hair loss were women who drink coffee, use sun protection and are happily married than those who did not.
Another research project that focused on 66 male identical twins, Guyuron said, found that men who had high blood pressure and didn’t exercise regularly had a higher risk of coronal hair loss.
Dr. Guyuron presented the studies at the American Society of Plastic Surgeon’s annual meeting in Denver.
Those who are suffering from hair loss need to try and control what they can control in terms of the way they approach stress and handle situations, according to Dr. Doris Day, a physician in dermatology who attended the meeting.
