Experiencing Hair Loss After COVID-19

Experiencing Hair Loss After COVID-19

Over the past few years, there have been many different reported side effects from the coronavirus. Have you experienced hair loss after COVID-19?

For people across the world hair loss after COVID-19 is a sadly common side effect.

In fact, hair loss after COVID-19 is so common that it’s caused online hair loss communities to grow exponentially.

So did you lose your hair during the pandemic?

Since 2020, millions of people across the world found themselves shedding their hair. What’s strange about this was that this was happening for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients alike.


Thankfully, this frustrating side effect has an identifiable cause, Telogen Effluvium.

Telogen Effluvium is defined by dermatologists as a type of hair loss caused by a high fever or intense amounts of stress. This result pushes the body to conserve resources by “pushing more hairs than normal” into the shedding, telogen, phase.

This phase diverts the body’s blood supply from your hair follicles, thus causing your hair to fall out by the handful.

That’s right. Stress can cause you to lose your hair.


How does that make you feel?

Well, it’s making a lot of people feel self-conscious. Hair, after all, is an essential part of many people’s identity and their connection to youth and vitality. In an article published in The Atlantic, author Amanda Mull shares her hair loss journey.

“If you’ve never gone from normal hair to bald spots in a matter of weeks, you might be tempted to dismiss this as vanity. But people value their hair because the society they live in tells them it’s important… Losing it can send people into a profound depression, or make them ashamed to leave the house.”

While many go on the hunt for miracle cures, it turns out that the main solution to this hairy situation is time.


After a period of 3-6 months the telogen process naturally ends and hair, slowly, starts growing back.

However, due to a lack of knowledge about Telogen Effluvium many people are in the dark about what’s happening to them. Why should they believe that their hair is going to naturally grow back?

Hair loss after COVID-19 continues to be a pressing issue. But when armed with information, the masses will not only be prepared to face this issue but to help others in need.
