Like many people, I recently transitioned to working from home. Within a few short weeks, I noticed I was moving less, eating more, and experiencing changes in my sleep, stress, and anxiety levels.
I knew if I didn’t take control, the effects would show up in my hair, as stress is a leading cause of hair thinning. Typically, it takes about three to six months for stress to be reflected in your hair. Once the hair follicles detect the stress hormone cortisol rising, they receive a red light to stop growing and prepare to shed hair. More shedding and slower hair growth? No thanks.
To get myself back on track, I created a work-from-home routine that balances office time with the oh-so-important “me-time” that helps keep stress at bay. Here’s everything I do in a day to promote hair wellness while staying productive at work.
