Rising star Anna Kendrick, 27, recently opened up about the stress she felt during the 2010 awards season, saying it got so intense it caused her to lose her hair. 

So did stress really cause her to lose her hair? Stress alone doesn't cause permanent hair loss, but it commonly contributes to temporary hair loss in both men and women. When the body goes into a state of shock, from for example extreme stress, the hair goes into a resting state of the hair growth cycle prematurely, resulting in sudden hair loss. This type of hair loss is often triggered by extreme stress associated with pregnancy, death of a loved one, surgery, serious illness or, according to  recent studies, divorce.

The good news is, this type of hair loss can usually be reversed by reducing your stress, or getting through awards season as the case may be. While it appears that Anna's locks have recovered, there are ways to speed up the hair recovery process.  Low Level Laser Therapy and a vitamin supplement like Viviscal are known ways to help stimulate healthy hair growth, a healthy diet is also the easiest way to help fuel healthy hair growth.
