‘General shedding and thinning of the hair from the scalp’
It usually occurs a few months after a proposed shock to the body such as extreme stress, fever, childbirth, sudden weight loss or a reaction to medication. It causes the hair follicles to enter a resting phase due to the normal cycle of hair growth becoming interrupted. It can be very sudden and distressing when the initial loss occurs, especially when washing, however this does not worsen the loss as the hair will eventually shed regardless. This condition differs to Alopecia Areata as the hair generally thins all over and is not a long term life condition.
