Baldness, an Occupational Hazard

Baldness, an Occupational Hazard

Trichologist Dr Shahid Shamsher tells us how our work can make us bald faster….

Work Stress

When the company makes you work so much that you even dream of work in your sleep, then you qualify for work stress. Typically people who don’t get more than 7 hrs of sleep, or have erratic sleep hours as happens in rotating shifts are prone to hair fall, baldness and scalp infections resulting from work stress.

Work Travel

In the beginning, its good fun to catch a flight every 2-3 months and travel to a different city or country. What starts as fun however, soon becomes a burden and more so when you lose hair every time you travel. Frequent change of water and climate causes a hair loss condition called Telogen Effluvium, which is why people whose work involves a lot of travel, often go balder must faster than their family and friends. 

No time to eat

Lets skip breakfast, eat lunch when we get time and dinner whenever we reach home. Now with this daily schedule, if you also are vegetarian and a woman, then that’s a sure recipe for hair thinning. Hair thinning is a condition where you may not shed a lot of hair, but the individual hair become thinner and thinner and the scalp becomes more and more visible.  This is why we find more women going bald nowadays than ever before.
