This type of hair loss is usually self-correcting, the hair loss will generally decrease over a few months. Whilst the shedding may stop, new hair may be slow to grow in its place. This is problematic because if shedding has been severe enough, you can be left with around 30% less hair on your scalp. In some cases, shedding may persist for a number of years.
I f you feel you are losing more hair than usual, speak to a professional that specialises in hair loss. Depending on the severity and duration of hair loss you can seek advice from your doctor, a trichologist or a dermatologist.
