Wedding Wednesday! How NOT to lose your Hair during the planning process

Don't worry be Happy:)))) As most brides embark upon one of the most memorable times of their lives, it can also be a very stressful time. It's so important to find ways to distress. Not only can stress have an adverse effect on your health but also on your hair.
During the planning process brides-to-be are flustered trying to figure out, dress options, food options, guest list, seating assignments, decor and other miscellaneous things that are relevant to the wedding day.
Many people don't realize that stress is the leading culprit in hair loss. When hair loss occurs due to stress, it's a very rapid process. More often then not hair will thin and in some cases, it can trigger 'alopecia areata'. If alopecia occurs you may have to see a dermatologist and get cortisone shots (Which are pretty painful, but has a high success rate in stimulating hair growth).
Its very important to remember that the wedding is one day of your life. Whereas stress can have a lasting effect on your life.You have to be Happy, and Happiness comes from within. That's why when you are stressed it has an effect internally and externally. It shifts your pH levels, because when you stress you deprive your body of vital nutrients. This is due to not eating regularly, or consuming the wrong foods (When you stress, you don't eat or you eat poorly).
If you want a healthy head of hair, you have to remember to treat it, moisturize, and keep excessive amounts of heat off of it.
As I stated in my previous post the foods that you incorporate in you diet play of significant role in hair growth.

Here are some ways to distress so that you can have beautiful and healthy hair for your big day.

1.) Listen to music. I like classical music. My favorite is the 'Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart' Pandora station. It's Awesome!

2.) Call a trusted friend or loved one. Healthy relationships/friendships are important. A reassuring voice can put everything into perspective.

3.) Eat right, Plan ahead. Fruits and veggies make great snacks. Fish with high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce symptoms of stress.

4.) Take a deep breath. Deep breathing oxygenates your blood and clears your mind.

5.) Drink a cup of tea. Tea has healthy antioxidants in it. As well as 'Theanine', which is an amino acid that has a calming and soothing effect on the nervous system.
