COVID-19 HAIR LOSS

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT


Whether you've had the virus or not, COVID-19 has affected all of our lives in one way or another. Illnesses such as this one can often lead to hair shedding thanks to a number of different reasons. According to various news sources, 25% to 65% of COVID-19 survivors are experiencing hair loss or shedding.


Here at Zenagen, our inquiries about hair loss due to illness have increased, as well. We’ve seen a 30% increase of clicks for hair loss in general, and a 120% increase in searches specifically about hair loss after illness.

WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?

Stress is a leading factor relating COVID-19 and hair loss. Hair loss due to stress is known as telogen effluvium. Telogen effluvium causes the hair cycle to become prematurely pushed into the resting stage (telogen). Hair loss from stress generally doesn’t begin until weeks, or even months after the stressful event (in this case Covid). 


Usually we shed around 100 hairs a day, however, when you're stressed, your body becomes extremely sensitive to inflammation. Inflammation is one of the main causes of hair loss and can increase shedding of up to several hundred hairs a day. A big issue is that hair loss itself often creates more stress which then leads to more hair loss. It’s a vicious cycle that is difficult to get out of without some mental and physical help.

The hair follicle gets pre-maturely pushed to phase 3, telogen, causing pre-mature shedding
