Why Does Your Hair Texture Change When You Have Telogen Effluvium Or Shedding?

I usually receive mail from people who want to understand what caused their hair to take in a strange or flyaway appearance prior to or during increased hair loss. They want to determine if the shedding damaging their hair, or if the strange texture was there prior to or has something to have to do with the loss of hair. Also, they must be aware of the possibility that their texture could be normal when the shedding has stopped. I’ll try to answer these questions in the next article.

Why Does Changing Hair Texture Commonly Go Hand In Hand With Telogen Effluvium?

If your hair is in the shedding or TE phase that means you’ve had a large portion of your hair follicles are able to rest at the same time. It takes a while from the moment that hair is going through the process of transformation to the time it sheds. It could be anything between a few weeks to a few months. (This is the reason why, typically the shedding will begin about a month from your “trigger” that introduced the shed.)

In this transitional phase there are many hairs that can be considered “dead” or now not growing. They’ll eventually shed but it doesn’t happen immediately. Thus, while the hair is going through its paces and may be nearing the point of being shed, the hair will take on different texture that is the one you’re likely to see today. The majority of people will want to know what I can do to fix this, or how they can improve the appearance of their hair. In reality, there’s no option to bring it back up to its upwards section. The hair will be shed at some point fast, and there’s not any option to alter this. But, generally, wearing hair with a ponytail can help in hiding this. If you’re not keen to tie your hair or in a ponytail, you can apply an easy-to-use weight-loss conditioner or a product specifically designed for people who have frizz to make your hair fall down.Be careful when choosing products that are light weight. If you don’t use a product that is light weight, it could make your hair heavier which can make your hair appear thin and/or oily.

The good news is that, since all the hairs at rest tend to go through a cycle the texture should eventually be back to normal, in the event that you can remove and eliminate the set-off (if you’d like to) so to ensure that this cycle doesn’t keep repeating itself.

Why You Should Be Concerned About the texture of your hair changing:

As I’ve stated that the flyaway, dryer hair that is associated with TE tends to develop itself. Learn more about hair that’s reduced to a smaller size. Since, generally the hair you see isn’t typical for hair. The loss may also have an AGA or androgenic alopecia (genetic thinning) component. If this is the case it is common to see a miniaturization of the regrowth. This means that your hair follicles are being negatively affected by androgens or other genetic or hormonal aspects. This means that hair that grows back can be found in two quality levels: extra-high-quality and thin. It will typically give the flyway an odd appearance that I often encounter and learn about through personal experience.

In this instance it is important to limit the impact of hormones and androgens by vigorously stimulating new regrowth. This is typically two steps in the process, but when you do this methodically it is possible to change or increase the quality of your skin.
