Hair loss following covid can be regained
Have you suffered from Covid last month? Then please be alert, especially women. A large number of women are reporting with excessive hair fall.
Covid has a weakening effect on hair roots causing the strands to detach easily. Besides the days when you do not eat well during the illness the existing strong hairs too get no nourishment. All these changes show up only 6-8 weeks later when your health is recovering. Does all this sound familiar? Happened to you?
Have plenty of sprouts, vegetables and nuts to strengthen the hair roots. If hair fall doesn't stop, visit your doctor. A skin specialist would be able to help you regain what is lost recently.
The specialist would check you to find out if you have any other factor to cause hair loss like anemia (low hemoglobin), abnormal thyroid function or improper nutrition. Usually medicines containing good amount of nutrients like biotin, vitamin C, iron and zinc will work wonders.
These are the items that you should have in your diet to get the hair back.
- Citrus fruits
- Leafy greens
- Nuts and seeds
- Whole grains
In addition maintain good habits by getting at least 6 hours of sleep and avoiding overuse of shampoos and conditioners. Oiling the hair with any of the common oils is a good practice to give lustre to the hair strands.
Following these tips most of you should get most of your hair back within 8 - 10 weeks.
In order to remember these tips, pass on these points to some of your friends who will also thank you forever.
