    Several experts point towards hormonal changes triggered by stress as a primary factor. The stress hormone cortisol, for instance, can disrupt the skin's natural balance when levels are high. With the scalp being no different than other skin parts, this paves the way for aggravations. Psychological factors also play a role, where mood disorders may worsen existing scalp problems through inflammatory responses.
