Telogen Effluvium – a common form of hair loss

  • 4 min. read

Hair on a person’s scalp always undergoes three phases:

1. Anagen phase

2.Catagen phase

3.Telogen phase

Anagen is termed as the growing phase for hair. At any given time, at least 85% of a person’s hairs are actively growing. Usually a hair is in anagen phase for about 4 years. Then catagen phase cause the end of the anagen phase and marks the beginning of the telogen phase. So catagen phase is the transition period. The hair in telogen phase are resting and eventually in 3-4 months fall out allowing new hair to grow. So, an average person loses about 100 hair a day.

Telogen effluvium is triggered by:

  • Weight loss
  • Surgery
  • Change in diet
  • Hormonal changes
  • Iron deficiency
  • Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism
  • Fever or infection
  • Physical or mental trauma


Telogen Effluvium is a common form of hair loss in men as well as women. When a person experiences shock or has a mental trauma, more hair (about 35%) stop growing and go into the resting phase. This results in the gradual thinning of the hair. So, if a person is experiencing Telogen Effluvium then the person will lose about 350 hair per day instead of 100. Because the hair takes 3-4 months to shed, most of us will not realize that Telogen Effluvium is triggered until after 3-4 months of the actual incident. You may be scared of losing most of such hair in a short amount of time, but this condition is usually temporary. Each hair that falls off is replaced by a new hair so you may not face the problem of baldness.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The good part is that mostly people will not notice that you have Telogen Effluvium. This is because the hair does not fall of from a particular part of the scalp but few from every part. This does not make patches of hair loss but makes your hair less dense. So, if you have large patches of bald spots then you probably do not have Telogen Effluvium. The ideal way to understand if you are not suffering from this kind of hair loss condition you may choose to consult a professional set of team-members at Advanced Hair Studio to help you understand the actual situation. Only post such diagnosis can the appropriate solution be suggested and taken forward.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
