Hair Loss in Times Of Covid-19

Posted by Meerika Khanna on

Covid-19 has brought unprecedented changes to our lives. The situation all over the world is still unfolding with newer findings and discoveries.

Though the pandemic has affected lives everywhere, many COVID-19 survivors have witnessed different side effects post-treatment.

One side effect reported by many COVID-19 recovered individuals is hair loss. Most individuals in this category have experienced hair loss after 2-3 months of their recovery from COVID-19.

According to WHO, the primary symptoms of Covid-19 are dry cough, fever, tiredness, while some other less common symptoms are aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhea, rashes, etc. One does not find mention of hair loss in the symptoms as it is not a symptom, but an after effect of COVID-19.

Reason for post covid019 hair fall:

There is a Phenomenon known as telogen effluvium in medical science. This phenomenon happens when a large number of hairs go into the resting phase (a period in the life of hair follicles when they cease to grow), followed by hair loss. Conditions such as high fever, along with other COVID related effects, contribute considerably to hair fall.

In most cases, hair fall is sudden, and you find scary bunches of hair in your hairbrush. However, in most cases, this hair loss is temporary, and a majority of COVID-19 survivors should recover from this hair loss within a few months.

An important point to note is that such hair fall can be sudden, whereas in some cases, affected people may first experience hair thinning, leading to hair fall.


COVID-19 survivors (especially the ones who've experienced bouts of high fever) are most prone to such hair fall. Preventive measures include using natural hair nutrition products regularly. COVID survivors can start a hair care regimen immediately after recovery. To avoid any other side effects, make sure to use hair products with natural ingredients such as our Revitalize natural hair growth oil treatment. Our product is 100% safe and contains only natural ingredients. It strengthens hair follicles and helps thicken thin hair. Besides, Revitalize also works on delivering optimal nutrition, scalp circulation, strengthening, and multi-level nourishment to improve the overall appearance of hair.

Challenging times require extra caution and care for your body, skin, and hair. We are sure good times will come soon, and we will walk and live freely like we once did. Till then, prevention is the key to well being.
Stay positive, test negative!
