Are you experiencing hair loss after contacting the COVID-19 virus? According to the American Academy of Dermatology as well as the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), many men and women have noticed hair loss and thinning months after recovering from the virus.
The exact reason for the COVID-related hair loss is being studied, but it may be attributed to a condition called telogen effluvium. This condition occurs after a stressful event or some kind of shock to the body that pushes actively growing hair into the telogen or resting phase. The average person should have about 90% of their hair in the Anagen or growth phase at any given time, but as much as 30% or more of your hair may enter the telogen phase prematurely due to a shock or very stressful event. Another possible reason for hair loss is stress. When you are stressed, your blood vessels constrict resulting in reduced blood flow and oxygen to the scalp. Your hair follicles require an active supply of blood and oxygen to ensure healthy hair growth.
