Covid 19 Hair Loss
Are you experiencing hair loss after having Covid?
Hair loss from Covid is a real thing.
According to WebMD:
"Hair Loss is an Unexpected COVID Misery for Many."
WebMD goes on to say:
"The link between hair loss and COVID is just starting to be reported and recognized in research. Sara Hogan, MD, a health sciences clinical instructor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, says this timeline makes sense because hair loss often happens to patients 3 to 5 months after a stressful illness or experience."
Juli Fisher, a nurse, said, "I started noticing gobs of hair coming out when I took a shower. At first I thought it was that I was using a cheaper shampoo, but it soon became obvious, as more and more came out, that this was something else."
Rachel Baum of Saratoga Springs, NY said, "I’ve lost so much hair that I thought my thyroid was out of whack. I went to see my endocrinologist, and she said my numbers were fine. So it has to be COVID."
There are even Facebook groups for people who are losing their hair after having COVID.
So if you are losing your hair since you got or recovered from Covid 19, you are not alone.
What Can You Do About Your Hair Loss After Covid?
Since this phenomenon is so new, there is not a lot of research on treatments or remedies at this time.
However, there are natural ingredients that are known to stimulate your hair follicles to grow your hair faster and thicker.
Will these ingredients counteract Covid Hair Loss? Nobody knows for sure at this point in time.
But it is possible the ingredients that help normal hair loss could help you reverse your Covid hair loss.
What are the natural ingredients that promote hair growth?
There are two basic types:
1) ingredients you put on your scalp
2) ingredients you swallow (dietary supplements)
Here are the best ingredients for hair growth to put on your scalp. They are mostly essential oils, but there are others.
Castor oil is the Super Star Oil for hair. It not only helps avoid hair loss, but it can double or triple normal hair growth rates.
Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons.
Its antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against folliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth.
BLACK SEED OIL
This highly concentrated oil is made from tiny black seeds that are commonly called "black cumin" but are scientifically called nigella sativa.
Since it is anti-inflammatory, black seed oil is great when diluted with a carrier oil to soothe scalp conditions that cause inflammation, flakiness, and sensitivity.
Like lavender, citrus, and rosemary essential oils, black seed oil is an adjuvant, meaning it works well with other ingredients to provide therapeutic effects.
A study conducted in 2003 revealed that coconut oil can reduce or prevent hair protein loss more effectively than mineral and sunflower oils (these two oils are common ingredients of many hair care products).
Coconut oil is a rich source of nutrients like vitamin E, vitamin K and iron. These nutrients are essential for maintaining your hair’s shine and softness.
Olive oil has long been used as a great way to promote skin health. It also helps the skin of your scalp, and that can in turn boost the health of your hair.
Olive oil massages can improve the blood circulation in your scalp. This increased blood flow can stimulate the follicles, which then produce thicker strands.
Keep in mind that olive oil used alone is an excellent way to prevent or slow hair loss. But if you add other ingredients to the olive oil, such as rosemary, castor oil or cayenne pepper, you can see even better results.
Well known for its ability to stimulate hair growth, rosemary is often added to hair-growth treatments and shampoos. One of the best oils for your hair is rosemary.
When using rosemary essential oil for the hair, your hair can grow long, strong, and thick. It can also retain more moisture, keeping your hair shiny, soft, and beautiful all day long.
Lavender oil is regenerative and found in hair formulas for all types of hair and scalp conditions.
A study by a group of dermatologists in Scotland showed that 44 percent of alopecia patients who were tested experienced new hair growth when they massaged their scalp daily with lavender and other essential oils for seven months.
Use a carrier oil to dilute essential oils and aid in the delivery of their healing properties without irritation.
Vitamin E has antioxidant properties that help repair damaged hair follicles and prevent tissue corrosion, which in turn encourages healthy hair growth.
It also deeply conditions the hair from root to shaft to make it healthier and shinier, and even prevents premature graying.
NEEM SEED OIL
With extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants – a lot more than those found in blueberries or spinach – neem oil protects the scalp skin from ongoing damage that is caused by the free radicals.
Neem also has regenerative properties that support healthy cell division and stimulate hair follicle growth and function.
Regular application of the neem oil will promote thicker, stronger, and more luxurious hair growth.
CAFFEINE FOR HAIR GROWTH
According to a new study, caffeine doesn't just perk up your brain neurons in the morning, it makes your hair grow faster too.
The International Journal of Dermatology has found that caffeine stimulates the hair shaft and helps it grow faster by blocking the effects of DHT, a chemical known to damage follicles.
Topical applications allow for the higher dosage without the side effects that can occur from high-dose caffeine ingestion.
CAYENNE PEPPER FOR HAIR GROWTH
The benefits of using cayenne pepper to increase hair growth are numbered.
Capsaicin, a chemical in cayenne pepper, stimulates the hair follicles and helps the hair to grow.
Another chemical, quercetin, increases blood flow to the scalp which is beneficial to hair growth.
Cayenne pepper, when used as part of your hair-care regimen, can be help your hair grow faster.
