Tackling Hair Loss After the COVID Pandemic: Tips and Strategies for Stopping Your Hair Fall Now And In The Future

It’s no secret that our hair is one of the most important aspects of our physical appearance, and when it comes to COVID-19, many people have experienced drastic changes in their hair health. From thinning out to excessive shedding, women have been reporting experiencing changes in their hair after being diagnosed with Covid-19. But what are the factors that induced hair fall after being diagnosed with Covid-19 and what are the solutions?


Causes of Hair Loss From COVID-19

Experts have found that the link between Covid-19 and hair loss is due to stress. This could either be due to the fear and anxiety associated with having contracted the virus, or simply from all of the extra stress of having to manage treatment while dealing with everyday life. As stress can cause a disruption in hormones, this could lead to an increase in signs of hair loss such as thinning out or increased shedding. Studies have also shown that women more likely experience this kind of Telogen Effluvium (temporary hair loss) than men post covid infection.


Long-term solutions for stopping hair fall 

If you’ve been experiencing any form of hair loss post covid diagnosis, it’s important to understand that there are steps you can take to minimize excess shedding and promote healthy regrowth. Here are four steps you can take:


[1] The Hoffman Breathing Technique [HBT]: This technique encourages deep breathing exercises which will help reduce stress levels and improve scalp circulation for optimal growth conditions. It’s simple – all you need to do is breathe deeply for 10 minutes every day!

[2] Nutrition: Eating a diet rich in vitamins A, C, B6, B12, E and zinc is key for promoting healthy locks as these nutrients play an important role in protein synthesis and cell division needed for growing strong strands. Additionally adding biotin supplements into your diet may also help promote faster regrowth as biotin helps create keratin which gives strength and structure to our hair strands!


[3] Hair Growth Serum: Don’t forget about massaging your scalp and topically applying a serum directly onto it! Adding a couple of drops of our Hair Growth Serum to your scalp every morning or night will help nurture your follicles and stimulate growth by providing them with much needed moisture and nourishment for optimal scalps conditions! 

[4] Chinese Medicine Supplements: Chinese herbs such as Dong Quai root, He Shou Wu extract (Fo-ti) and Ji Xue Teng can provide relief from inflammation induced shedding by calming down nerves associated with telogen effluvium caused by emotional distress during times of illness like COVID 19 infections. Additionally they also contain essential minerals such as zinc which helps activate enzymes required for natural growth processes!

Still not sure if these methods will work? 

Our Founder and SEO, Cindy Suárez is one example who personally experienced how contracting COVID-19 changed her life forever – even impacting her hair health! In September 2022, Cindy came down with coronavirus-induced fever. After spending two days lying in bed, she slowly bounced back but two months later she started noticing huge strands of her gorgeous chestnut brown hair falling off her head while showering or combing. Cindy was devastated seeing so much hair fall off but decided not let it stop her from living life. Instead, she took control over her situation by incorporating everything we talked about earlier including nutrient rich foods like spinach, avocados eggs etc., taking herbal supplements like Dong Quai root and Fo-Ti extracts regularly, massaging daily with our Hair Growth Serum, doing 10 minutes of HBT daily & seeking emotional support from family & friends. After a few weeks, she noticed improvements gradually & she finally started regaining her hair one strand at a time! Seeing results motivates us to keep going on & remember no matter how bad things seem if we fight hard enough we’re bound to emerge victorious!
