It has been noted that patients who have recovered after battling COVID-19 suffer from temporary hair loss. Many case studies have also shown that hair loss is the potential long term effect of COVID-19.
Why Does COVID-19 Cause Hair Loss?
Temporary hair loss is common after having a fever or illness, and fever is one of the common symptoms of COVID-19. While many people think of this as hair loss, it’s actually extreme hair shedding that is medically known as ‘telogen effluvium.’ This happens when many hair follicles are accelerated into the resting phase of the hair growth cycle.
Most people notice hair shedding two to three months after having COVID-19. Handfuls of hair can come out during light activities such as showering or while brushing hair. This happens because your body experiences immense stress while fighting the virus. Due to the stress on the immune system, hair is prematurely accelerated to the resting phase of the hair growth cycle, where it will remain for a while before shedding. Typically, your hair follicles are all in different stages of the hair growth cycle, so you can shed hair without really noticing. However, in the case of those with telogen effluvium, many of the hair follicles are synced (and all in the resting, soon to be shedding phase of the hair regrowth cycle); this gives the appearance of massive hair loss usually occurring about 2-4 months after the stressful event.
How to battle hair loss caused by COVID-19?
First and foremost, you’ll want to alleviate your stress. Experts also suggest focusing on dialing down the stress levels because only then will excessive hair shedding stop. Sleeping well will help you recover. However, stress also causes a massive depletion of essential nutrients. So, you will need to replenish those nutrients to help your body return to proper health.
