Miss Jones that makes sense its just that you still condition did the small things that improve your hair.

Stress definitely affects your hair but it does different things to different people. I don't know who posted it, but I have also gotten a completely baby smooth bald patch in the middle of the back of my head about the size of a silver dollar twice in my life from severe stress. I mean it was the kind of stress that was keeping me up at night. Both times, I just happened to feel back one day and it would be a smooth perfect circle like a baby's bottom (lol). Then after the stress was over, it would grow right back out again. It's really weird and crazy, I just thank God it happened in the back and not on the crown or something where I would be looking really crazy.

Stress can def. take your hair out. So try relieving that stress somehow.

being stressed out def. affects my hair...it affects my health over-all...i remember a while back, around the beginning of the yr. I was going to class full-time, work full-time, and had internship hours to complete...I was hyper and tired at the same time, add on top of that I was about five months post...it was terrible...my hair just started to shed more, or maybe it was breakage...i posted a thread around then wondering if it was the stretching, if I had gone too long w/o relaxing

To counter-act everything I just started deep conditioning more...I made it a point to come home, get in a hot bath, and just sit until the water got cold lol...when I did that I dc'ed and everything worked itself out in the end

Well, my fiance and I both got laid off. As a result, we had to cancel our Jamaican wedding and honeymoon because we need to use the wedding money to pay for rent and food and whatnot. I had to throw away expensive invitations and cancel my beautiful wedding dress. When I attempted to do my hair last week, I ended up with a handful of hair in my hand. So, I think stress definitely impacts people's hair.
 
You'd think that with this and the other issues we have that I could at least have beautiful hair, right? No such luck! Cry
