When you are suffering from hair loss, you may feel like it will last forever. It’s easy to feel down when your hair is shedding in the shower, while you sleep and when you brush. But when you start to see the recovery signs, you will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel! Read our top Telogen Effluvium recovery signs to look out for:
Long- Term Shedding Reduction
Typically, Telogen Effluvium will start 2 to 4 months after a triggering event. The hair will start to shed longer than the normal shedding cycle and you will notice more hair loss than normal. However, if you have resolved the root cause of the trigger, this excessive shredding should only last up to 6 months. If you notice your hair is a little thicker (and less clumps in the sinkhole) you may be well on your way to recovery.
Not sure what is causing your hair loss? Speak to our trained trichologists at our Simone Thomas hair loss clinic in Bournemouth. We can help identify the cause and suggest the best hair loss treatment for you.
You Feel Less Stressed
Stress is one of the most common causes of Telogen Effluvium. This can cause a vicious cycle effect, as losing your hair is very stressful alone! If stress or anxiety is the root cause of your hair loss, we advise you seek counselling or another form of support to help you through tough times. Mediation, exercise and more sleep may also help you feel less stressed. After 3- 6 months of stress management, you may find your hair starting to grow back.
You Feel Healthier
Telogen Effluvium can also be directly linked to poor health. This may be due to:
• a symptom of medication
• a reaction to an underlying condition (such as autoimmune disease, or a thyroid problem)
• unbalanced diet
A lack of protein or iron may be the cause of your hair loss. If you have been eating a balanced diet of protein and iron-rich foods, such as eggs, fish and dark green vegetables, you may be feeling a spring in your step and more volume in your hair.
Dietary supplements can be a great help if you are suffering from a vitamin deficiency. Be sure to see our range of Simone Thomas Wellness products, designed to boost your everyday nutrition levels.
This may seem obvious, but re-growth is a clear sign of recovery which can go unmissed. Telogen Effluvium may be more severe in some areas of the scalp than others. Commonly, it causes more hair loss on the top of the scalp. After 3- 6 months of shedding, check for signs of regrowth on the top of your hairline. Use a mirror or ask a loved one to help if you have difficulty seeing any growth on the crown of your head.
