Masks may not be going away anytime soon. But apparently our hair could be. The truth is, this virus has been hair-raising.


Between COVID toes, the loss of taste and smell, and of course hives, it seems that experts are still learning about the puzzling symptoms and aftermath of the infection.


Now a number of COVID survivors has reportedly experienced significant hair loss, even after recovering from the virus. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Trusted Source, the hair loss associated with the COVID-19 strain is consistent with a condition called Telogen Effluvium (TE), which results in hair falling out in large clumps, usually while brushing or showering.


In a recent study, the average time from COVID-19 symptom onset to noticeable hair loss is 60 days. One of the potential triggers is fever (physical symptom), while the other is emotional stress. In some cases, TE has even been related to the impact of the stresses caused by self-isolation and quarantining, and not even the virus itself.


The GOOD NEWS is that regardless of whether your hair loss is from a physical or mental trigger, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOSE YOUR HAIR OVER COVID.
