Hair-loss after COVID?

It is real. You are not alone—66% of people have experienced it after an infection.





YES it will grow back!


According to ever-evolving research regarding the many affects of COVID-19, hair loss after an infection is a real thing. It is usually caused by a condition called telogen effluvium, a common cause of generalized hair loss. Telogen effluvium can be triggered by viruses, stress, vitamin deficiencies, medications and even hormonal imbalance.


Quick facts:

•Most people don’t experience any noticeable hair loss until 2-3 months after they have recovered from the virus.


•The shedding can last 3-6 months before it stops.


•Hair will eventually grow back, taking about 6-9 months.
