Hairblues in Pandemic Times

Thankfully, as a society we have progressed to a consciousness where a woman who identifies with her baldness in a way that she feels depicts beauty, is a welcome change to the hair loss challenge.

Nevertheless, it does not negate the fact that when a woman is confronted with unexpected hair loss, when she has had no previous symptoms – for example, Thyroid issues  it can be alarming.

For a number of women, who have had the recent Pandemic virus for more than a few weeks, Covid19 has been the suspected cause  for some of them losing “globs” of their hair.  A travel nurse, Juli Fisher, reported to WebMD News that she noticed she was losing “globs” of hair in the shower several weeks into her Covid19 illness. She  later  learned about others who were suffering similarly  from  a FaceBook group the “Long Haulers”.  Dermatologists refer to this type of hair loss as telogen effluvium, a temporary condition due to physical or emotional stress.  Oftentimes the hair grows back within a year.  Please use the links below to read details about this condition.
