Most people can shed 50 to 100 hairs per day as a normal cycle and even more when washing your hair. Stimulation like coming, brushing or washing your hair will cause the hairs that are going to shed to fall even quicker. But we have seen clients recently that have been experiencing even more shedding than normal. Here are some possible causes for excessive hair shedding:
- Child Birth
- A stressful event
- High fever
- Recovery from an illness
- COVID 19
Hair Loss experts will attribute this excessive shedding to a condition called telogen effluvium. This condition forces large numbers of hair follicles into the resting phase prematurely. Within a few months, the hairs will fall out causing significant hair thinning.
