Stress and hair loss. Temporary hair loss can be caused by significant stress, both physical and emotional. This type of telogen effluvium can occur after hospitalization, severe illness, even pregnancy, but the hair resumes growth after a few months. Usually stress does not cause a long term hair loss and if there is gradual thinning, over years then it is probably genetic, or endocrine disorders such as low thyroid.
