CAN COVID-19 CAUSE HAIR LOSS?
People develop noticeable hair loss after recovering from COVID-19
Months after recovering from COVID-19, many people find that their hair is falling out in large clumps.Woman holding hairbrush full of hairIf we’ve learned anything from the coronavirus pandemic, it’s to expect the unexpected. The hair loss that many people develop, however, may not be so unexpected. Here’s why.Temporary hair loss is normal after a fever or illness
Fever is a common symptom of COVID-19. A few months after having a high fever or recovering from an illness, many people see noticeable hair loss.While many people think of this as hair loss, it’s actually hair shedding. The medical name for this type of hair shedding is telogen effluvium. It happens when more hairs than normal enter the shedding (telogen) phase of the hair growth lifecycle at the same time. A fever or illness can force more hairs into the shedding phase.Most people see noticeable hair shedding two to three months after having a fever or illness. Handfuls of hair can come out when you shower or brush your hair. This hair shedding can last for six to nine months before it stops. Most people then see their hair start to look normal again and stop shedding.
Telogen effluvium causes noticeable hair shedding
Telogen effluvium causes noticeable hair shedding, but that’s all you should experience. If you have a rash, itchy scalp, or burning, something other than telogen effluvium is likely causing your hair loss, and it’s time to see a dermatologist.Stress can cause temporary hair shedding
Even if you never developed a fever or COVID-19, you may still see hair shedding. Emotional stress can also force more hairs than normal into the shedding phase. And who isn’t feeling more stressed and anxious during the pandemic?Again, the hair shedding begins about two to three months after the stress starts. While seeing your hair fall out in clumps can add to your stress, it’s important to try to de-stress. Only when the stress ends will the excessive hair shedding stop. Hair tends to return to normal on its own
When the cause of your hair shedding is due to a fever, illness, or stress, hair tends to return to normal on its own. You just have to give it time. As your hair grows back, you’ll notice short hairs that are all the same length by your hairline. Most people see their hair regain its normal fullness within six to nine months. If you suspect that your hair loss is caused by something more than telogen effluvium from stress or a fever, talk with a hair-loss expert, a dermatologist.

Q. What is the difference between the Split End Repairing Treatment and a Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment?
A. The Split End Repairing Treatment is a 10 minute service that is only performed on the ends of the hair to instantly repair, mend and seal broken and split ends for up to 4 weeks. The Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment is a 90 minute service that smooths, eliminates frizz and improves the health of the hair from roots to tips for up to 12 weeks.
Q. What is the Thermo-Marine Bonding System™?
A. The Thermo-Marine Bonding System™ is a heat-activated, protein-enriched technology that instantly gathers and binds together broken and split ends while the Brazilian Blowout Super Nutrient Complex™ smooths the cuticle. The end result is stronger, healthier ends defended against damage caused by heat styling, hot tools and environmental stress.
Q. How does this service differ from at-home repair treatments?
A. Generally, at-home treatments provide a temporary conditioning and protective effect from wash to wash whereas the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repairing Treatment instantly repairs broken damaged ends, providing 4 weeks of healthier ends protected against further breakage caused by everyday styling and environmental stressors./p>
Q. Can the Split End Repairing Treatment be performed on color-treated or highlighted hair?
A. Yes. In fact, it works best on chemically treated hair by filling in weak areas with nutrient rich proteins while sealing broken/split fibers. Please note that the Split End Repairing Treatment must be performed after receiving color or chemical services for optimum results.
Q. Can I receive a Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment and the Split End RepairingTreatment on the same day?
A. Yes. In fact, the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repairing Treatment is ideal for clients with fragile and/or broken ends which will benefit from the reparative benefits of Thermo-Marine Bonding System. What’s more, the Split End Repairing Treatment is excellent for maintaining strong healthy ends between smoothing treatments.
Q. How often can you receive the Split End Repairing Treatment?
A. You can receive the treatment as often as every 4 weeks. The treatment is formulated to improve the integrity of the hair so the condition of the ends will continue to improve with each treatment.
Q. How long does the treatment last?
A. Up to 4 weeks (and in some cases, longer) when you use the Açai Aftercare and Styling Products.
Q. What should I expect after I get this treatment done?
A. Healthier, stronger ends with less breakage and a noticeably improved texture.
Q. Who is the best candidate for this treatment?
A. Anyone who wants to improve the condition and integrity of their hair will benefit from this treatment, especially if you have fragile, over-processed ends. It’s also recommended if you are looking to grow your hair longer as it helps maintain healthy ends without sacrificing length.
Q. Is there a waiting period with this treatment?
A. No! The minute you leave the salon, you may wash the hair, exercise, even put the hair up in a bun or a clip immediately after receiving the service without worry.
Q. Can I get this treatment in place of a haircut?
A. In order to maintain optimum hair health, you should schedule haircuts with your stylist on a regular basis. A haircut by a licensed stylist is your first line of defense against split ends and breakage as it helps prevent damage from progressing. In fact, receiving the Split End Repair Treatment after a precision cut or even a trim will not only help maintain the shape of your cut between appointments but help in preventing ends from splitting.
Q. Does the product release formaldehyde?
A. No. This product does not release formaldehyde before, during or after the treatment.
