Sweden's most experienced hair clinic

Thousands of people have experienced hair loss after recovering from COVID-19 and many still have residual effects of the disease. Doctors believe that the physical and emotional stress that accompanies a case of COVID-19, can lead to a reversible hair loss condition known as Telogen effluvium.

In fact, we humans can start losing hair a few months after a stressful period or illness in our lives. Hair loss usually occurs a few weeks/months after a stressful event: for example, emotional distress, major surgery or high fever.

What happens is that an abnormal amount of hair is shifted to the telogen or resting phase of the hair growth cycle, which ultimately leads to hair loss. When there is a shock to the system, the body goes into survival mode and focuses only on the important functions and hair growth and retention are not as important functions in the body.

However, as Covid involves a wide range of symptoms, hair loss is not a listed symptom. If you experience hair loss after Covid, your hair will most likely come back in due course as your body recovers.
