Covid-19 and hair loss

Since the beginning of the pandemic, many people have experienced hair loss.The most common reasons for this are: having Covid-19, physical and emotional stress and daily weathering from wearing PPE. 

This type of hair loss is known as Telogen Effluvium(TE) and can take up to 3 months to show its effects. 

Our hair growth cycle has 3 main stages; Anagen (the growing phase), Catagen (the transitional phase) and Telogen (the resting phase). During Telogen our hair sheds and falls out. Around 5-10% off our hair is in this phase so it’s not noticeable, however with TE around 30% off our hair is in the Telogen phase, so we notice an increase of hair fall and hair thinning. 

Telogen Effluvium is temporary and can take 3 – 12 months for our hair growth cycle to get back to normal and hair shedding to decrease. 

The best way to help your hair is to feed it from within by eating a well-balanced diet containing plenty of protein, iron and Vitamin C. If you struggle to consume the right nutrients Florisene for women or Maxi hair supplements can be taken daily to give your hair a boost.

Nioxin 3 part system consisting of a cleanser, conditioner and scalp treatment is specially formulated to give thicker, fuller hair by increasing fullness of each hair strand and protecting your hair against damage. 

Nioxin Night Density Rescue is a leave-in nightly treatment designed to boost hair density and prevent further hair fall.
