4 Ways to Support Hair Regrowth After COVID-19

What Causes Hair Loss After COVID

Does COVID cause hair loss? A November 2020 study published in Open Forum Infectious Disease journal reported hair loss as a late onset symptom of COVID-19 in 24.1 percent of participants. So, what could be causing this hair loss after COVID? It appears that COVID and hair loss comes down to stress. 

Hair loss in those following a bout with the virus is similar to a condition called telogen effluvium, or TE. If you’ve ever experienced a sudden and significant amount of hair loss, you may have followed it back to a stressful event. Typically, people who develop TE first notice this type of hair loss two to three months after the stressor, as stated by the American Academy of Dermatology Association, and fever or illness are typical causes of TE.

While hair usually starts to fill in six to nine months after hair loss, who wants to wait that long? There are ways to speed up the appearance of hair regrowth. And we’ve got them!

4 Ways to Support Hair Regrowth After COVID-19

  1. Be Gentle

When you’ve undergone sudden hair loss after COVID, it’s especially important to go easy on your hair. Thinner hair is more fragile and requires a gentle touch, so avoid brush, combs, and hair ties that pull, tug, or break your strands. And remember to be especially careful when your hair is wet.

  1. Check Your Immunity

Supporting a healthy feeling immune system will bolster the appearance of hair regrowth. Make sure you are getting plenty of antioxidants in your diet. Green tea, colorful fruits and veg, and dark chocolate are all beneficial and delicious foods to add to your diet when experiencing COVID hair loss or any time.

  1. Moisturize Depleted Strands

Does it seem like keeping your hair properly moisturized is the answer to many a hair dilemma? That’s because IT IS! Hair that is thinner and weakened can more easily become parched, which could lead to further thinning and breakage. Not ideal. Enlist the help of ST. TROPICA Luscious Locks Leave-In Conditioner for an extra hit of moisture that’ll give your strands a feeling of protection. Also, it’s a good idea to increase how often you use Beach Goddess Hot Oil Hair Mask for an intense infusion of moisture.

  1. Hair Growth Superfoods

Hair vitamins seem like a no-brainer when it comes to hair regrowth. But it’s super important to understand that not all hair growth vitamins are created equally. You don’t want one that is full of fillers and sugar, but very little ingredients that actually improve the look of thinning hair. With Tru Bloom Hair Growth Vitamins, we’ve packed as many Hair Superfoods into one little capsule that we possibly could. This means an enormous bang for your beauty bucks with no junk or unnecessary ingredients. Only what your hair needs to look amazingly thick and healthy.

I had covid in 2021, and lost huge chunks of my hair. I didn’t want to leave the house! My friend uses these vitamins and referred me to them. My beautiful hair is back!
