Chronic, sustained exposure to stressors can profoundly affect tissue homeostasis, although the mechanisms by which these changes occur are mainly unknown. In a new study, scientists report about the biological mechanisms by which chronic stress impairs hair follicle stem cells. Their study confirms that chronic stress prompts hair loss. Scientists discovered that stress puts hair…
