Hairdressers all over the world are reporting that many customers are experiencing sudden hair thinning and hairloss after suffering from covid-19.

Why would this happen?

There are many reasons for hairloss, especially where the immune system comes under attack, eg chemotherapy, but the covid-19 virus is taking hairdressers by surprise. It seems to be a general all-over thinning, on a par with postpartum hairloss, suffered by women after childbirth.

If this happens to me should I worry?

Stress itself is also a big cause of hairloss so don’t panic as often hairloss is temporary. The first thing is to check that nothing else is going on by getting a medical check. Once you have been given the all clear by your doctor, usually after a blood test, you can then decide if you can live with it or if you need to look for hair replacement.

Is my hair likely to grow back?

The hair loss is likely to be temporary, taking a few months to recover, although it is very early to know how many will suffer with this side effect long-term. If the hairloss is not too devastating, then why not have fun with a wig in a different style or colour than you usually have.

What can I do if I need hair replacement?

Get in touch with me or your local hair replacement specialist to talk about a wig, hairpiece or toupee to match your hair and lifestyle.

First- Don’t Panic!


We need to work out the reason why you are having some hair loss before you can do something about it. Sounds obvious right? But you would be surprised how many things worried folk spend money on without stopping to work it out.
Ok so has this been happening slowly or has your hair suddenly started falling out?


If it is sudden, ask yourself these questions:
Are you taking any medications?
Have you had any trauma? This could include a fall, a car crash, a sudden death of someone close (sounds strange doesn’t it, but this really is a thing!)
Has it started to fall out in patches?
Is there a rash on your scalp?
If you can say yes to any of these questions you need to get to your doctor and discuss it with him/her.

Has your hair been thinning slowly in a particular area? eg at the temples or crown?
You may have ‘Male pattern baldness’ ( this is very common even if you are female).
When you have a natural hair loss there are only three choices:

  1. Learn to live with your new look. You will look older and this might be an advantage.
  2. Shave it all off (the oldest fashion in history and very chilly but still popular!)
  3. Come and see me to get some hair replacement and look your age again (or younger!)

Most of all you have lots of options so please do not despair x
