Temporary Hair Loss

Temporary hair loss is a broad term that encompasses many different causes of hair shedding. It’s important to note that everyone loses hair naturally, shedding 50-100 hairs per day. However, certain factors can cause excessive hair loss that is temporary and usually resolves itself within a few months.


  • Telogen effluvium: This is a common form of temporary hair loss triggered by stress, illness, childbirth, surgery, significant weight loss, or nutritional deficiencies.
  • Anagen effluvium: This type of hair loss is caused by medications or medical treatments that affect the hair growth cycle, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
  • Alopecia areata: This is an autoimmune disease that causes patchy hair loss on the scalp or body. While alopecia areata can sometimes be permanent, many people experience temporary hair loss with this condition.
  • Changes in hormone levels: Hair loss can occur due to hormonal fluctuations, such as during pregnancy, postpartum, menopause, or with certain hormonal medications.

The treatment for temporary hair loss depends on the underlying cause. In many cases, the hair loss will resolve on its own once the triggering factor is addressed. However, a dermatologist may recommend treatments to support hair growth or address the underlying cause.
