PONY-O Ponytail Holders: Hair Loss from COVID

PONY-O Ponytail Holders: Hair Loss from COVID

Hair loss from COVID? PONY-O hair ties can help keep it healthy during the re-growth stage.

Did you know that some people who've had COVID-19 experienced various symptoms, like fatigue and a loss of smell? Surprisingly, an unexpected side effect has been temporary hair loss. 

Maybe you've noticed more hair in the shower drain or your brush lately, or noticed more hair on your elastic hair tie. If you've recently recovered from COVID-19, an increase in hair shedding a couple of months after the infection might not be a coincidence. 

Noticing more hair on your hair brush? Switch to non-damaging PONY-O

Our hair normally goes through different phases - a growth phase lasting around 6 to 7 years, then a resting phase for a few months before restarting. Typically, we shed about 100 to 200 hairs a day, and this can vary due to different factors like seasons, age, and overall health. When our body is fighting off a virus like COVID-19, its attention shifts towards healing. This shift puts our hair into a resting phase, and that is what causes shedding.

The good news is that this kind of hair loss, called telogen effluvium, isn't permanent. Shedding hair can actually signal that our hair is on the road to recovery.

To support your hair during this regrowth phase, there are a few things you can do, according to health professionals. Regular exercise, a balanced diet rich in protein, and staying hydrated can help combat hair shedding.

Also, consider including PONY-O bendable hair ties to your routine. Our unique, patented ponytail holders are gentle on your hair follicles and reduce tension, potentially helping you maintain healthy hair during the regrowth process, and reducing damage/breakage.

Remember, while hair loss can be concerning, it's often a part of the body's natural recovery process and taking care of yourself (and your hair) can aid in its regrowth.
