Sudden Hair Loss
While hair loss is difficult enough to deal with, sudden hair loss can be downright devastating. There are actually several different factors that can lead to this unfortunate situation, including both temporary and long term conditions.
And while it is almost certain that you have heard stress being related to virtually everything by now, it is more than worth it to address stress in relation to hair loss situations. Both extreme, one time, and prolonged trauma caused by illness and malnutrition can cause a large number of problems for your growing (anagen phase) or resting (catagen phase) hair, causing it to simultaneously change and start the shedding phase (telogen). This shedding phase is most often referred to as the telogen effluvium.
However, what makes telogen effluvium a bit tricky and often causes it to frequently go undetected or cause even top hair loss specialists to fail to identify it is because the loss of your hair loss can sometimes actually take up to six weeks for the shedding phase to kick in. Unless there was one particular traumatic experience such as child birth, invasive surgery or a major accident, this makes identifying the root cause quite difficult. This underlines the importance of reducing stress levels whenever possible. So, even if you may be experiencing hair loss in a sudden manner, the cause could very well have started several months ago and you’re only just now noticing it.
Sometimes this sudden loss of hair (sometimes referred to as alopecia areata) is treated with Cortisone injections while others have used special shampoos.
