How Do You Combat Hair Loss Due To Stress? in soompi hangout Posted May 13 On 4/2/2019 at 10:40 AM, shravani said: Ponytails + stress is leading to noticeably thinner hair. Are there any good shampoos/hair ties/etc. that have worked for you and that you recommend? I agree, that stress and tight ponytails may lead to thinning hair. Just using shampoo won't help you much, get a vacation and try to avoid stress and get a healthy diet. Also, you should ask yourself what type of hair do I have and only then you should look for proper shampoo and hair mask.
