I would like to report that my telogen effluvium is (for now) over. It has lasted 9 months, the excessive hairloss stopped around 4 weeks ago. My hair is slowly getting back to its original thickness. The scalp shine is gone, which is a good indicator that my hair is filling in. The hairloss didn't stop from one day to another, it was a slow, probably 2-3 month long process. It has started to fall less and less around May. Now it isn't falling at all, probably around 5 hairs a day, which was my normal prior to hair loss. My telogen effluvium was caused by an extensive 5 month long infection caused by Epstein barr virus. I've been sick from August till December, hairloss started in November. What worked for me: unfortunately not much. I've tried a variety of anti hairloss treatments, very expensive natural ones, vichy dercos neogenic and many others. Spent a fortune on those, and i can't say that any of it helped. In my case, it was all about boosting my immune system, so i think taking my vitamins was crutial, but i don't think by any means that vitamins are a cure for telogen effluvium. The only thing that really helps this condition is time. And, the most important thing in the meantime is taking your mind off of your hair loss! I had very very long hair, so my hairloss, even if it was just a couple of strands, was very noticeable for me. So, for the first time in 10 years, i decided to get my hair cut into a long pixie. It was a very good decision. It suits me, my hair feels thicker, and also, it helped me with the emotional pain of losing my hair. I just realised that hair is not important. I'm pretty with a pixie, long hair isn't everything. Feel free to ask any questions, i'm here for all of you. Don't give up hope, but also, try everything you can in order to get your mind off of this mess. Stressing over it just doesn't help. Big hug to everyone!
