Is COVID Pandemic Stress Causing Your Hair Loss?

Posted: Wednesday, February 24th, 2021


As we approach a full year of being in a pandemic, things are starting to look more promising; COVID case numbers are getting lower, vaccines are being rolled out, and Spring is on its way. As things are slowly progressing, unfortunately so is the rise of hair loss. As the months pass, studies are showing that mostly women are noticing that they are losing more hair. But why? 

Studies are showing that people who had Coronavirus are experiencing hair loss as a side effect. Other studies are showing that many people are experiencing hair loss from the overall stress of the pandemic. When stress is the cause of your hair loss, this cause can be from a condition known as Telogen effluvium.

Telogen effluvium is a form of hair loss that causes excessive shedding due to a shock to the system, such as stress. Other triggers for Telogen effluvium can be physical trauma, illness, weight loss, medical conditions, hormonal changes, and even medications. In most cases, Telogen effluvium is temporary and hair growth will slowly return overtime. 

Although there is no cure for this type of hair loss, there are many ways to approach excessive hair shedding & we can help guide you. Take a look at some of our solutions we have to offer:
