Premier Hair ExtensionsLosing hair after COVID

The deadly COVID19 pandemic has transformed our lives in a plethora of unimaginable ways. If you’re worried about increased hair loss or a rapidly receding hairline, you need to understand how stress impacts our body.

Have you been experiencing excessive hair loss during the lockdown? It’s not a cause to be worried, as we have come across many clients with similar complaints. First and foremost, it is crucial to identify the cause behind this hair loss.

Agerelated hair loss

As we continue to age, our hair becomes thinner and brittle, much like the rest of our body organs that become weaker. We become more reliant on products and nutrient supplementation to maintain our strength and vitality.

Hormonal changes before and after menopause are another reason behind excessive and sudden hair loss. If you’re taking any medications or steroids for chronic ailments, they can also be the culprit behind your hair loss. It is best to consult your doctor on the sideeffects of such medications and gain insight into the hormonal changes you may be experiencing.

COVID Hair Loss

Yes, if you have had covid19 hair loss is on the list of side effects

Now, a lot of patients are reporting something much less obvious hair loss.

Dr. John Griffin from KelseySeybold Clinic said this is one of those things that your body does to protect you. While your body is focused on the trauma (or the virus) at hand, it’s not worried about wasting energy to make hair. So, this really isn’t a bad thing.”

“Anytime you undergo a significant or severe illness or have a big strain on your body, there can be a delay between two and three months that you may notice hair loss,” Griffin said. He’s confident it will eventually slow down, although, it may take months.

“When the body’s health is compromised [by emotional trauma or a physical illness like COVID19], hair cell division can temporarily ‘shut down’ as hair growth demands a lot of energy,” explains Lisa Caddy, consultant trichologist at Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic..

As a salon owner on Long Island, we””ve seen dozens of clients who have recovered from covid19 now suffering from varying levels of hair loss. Some have lost nearly half of their hair and others have certain areas they see thinning.

Hair loss is a very real long term side effect of covid19. We’ve found many clients have benefited from Lipid Complex Hair Treatments  and taking BioSil hair skin and nail supplement.

Stressinduced hair loss

Hair loss is one of the many symptoms of excessive stress, which gives birth to chaotic hormones that wreak havoc in our bodies. Stress may be a mental state of mind, but it has the ability to bring about overpowering physical changes and physiological reactions. In the wake of the coronavirus, we have all been cooped up at home, deprived of our livelihoods and the social support of our loved ones, friends and family.

Some of the most brutal symptoms of COVID19 that not many people are discussing include seclusion, isolation, depression, stress and anxiety. While the diseaserelated symptoms only impact those who get infected, these adverse mental health effects can be observed in every single one of us.
