Hair Care Tips for Post Covid Hair Loss

Have you lately recovered from Covid-19 and noticed a significant loss of hair? Don't worry, you're not the only one who feels this way. Millions of others are also suffering from COVID-19's residual effects.
There is, however, some good news. COVID-19-induced hair loss is reversible. Hair regrowth has been noted by many patients within 5-9 months following hair loss.

Exercise on a regular basis

Increased blood flow and circulation are good for your hair since it means more nutrients and oxygen go to the scalp. At least three times a week, thirty minutes of cardiovascular activity, such as brisk walking, can help you prevent additional hair loss.

Achieve a good night's sleep

Inadequate sleep can cause stress, which can contribute to additional hair loss in the long run. A good night’s sleep will help to reduce stress while also promoting hair protein synthesis and the healthy release of enzymes and growth hormones.

Relieve mental tension

Specific hair loss problems have been linked to anxiety and stress. Meditation and deep breathing exercises can help you manage them.
Allow yourself some days off if you don’t want to overwork yourself. You and your hair have earned a break.

Hair Care Suggestions Following Covid Hair Loss

  • When combing your hair with fine bristle combs, don't overdo it. It will just wreak havoc on your already thinning hair. Instead, carefully detangle your hair using a coarse comb.
  • Please be patient with your hair and treat it with respect. Failing to do so can result in additional hair loss.

Hair Oiling Instructions

Only an hour before you take a bath or shower, oil your hair. Do not leave your hair oiled overnight, as this might cause dust to accumulate. As a result, the hair follicles become blocked, resulting in infections. Apply a smaller amount of oil to your scalp and a larger amount to your ends.

Hair Wash Tips

  • If you're experiencing considerable hair loss, you might consider altering your hair-washing routine. Shampooing should be done with caution once you've recovered. Be gentle and don’t shampoo daily.
  • If you don't have a lot of dandruff, paraben, and sulfate-free shampoos will inflict the least amount of damage to your hair, which is already falling out.
  • Do you have a scalp that is greasy or flaky? To treat them, use shampoos containing ketoconazole, zinc pyrithione, or selenium sulfide.
  • We recommend dermatologically certified shampoos, which stimulate and facilitate hair growth.
  • Showering with hot water is not recommended. To avoid heat damage, it is preferable to wash your hair with lukewarm or cold water.
  • Do you have hard water at home? For your scalp, consider utilizing bottled or drinking water. Consider using water softeners if that's too much work for you.

Hair Styling Tips

  • Blow-drying your hair can cause heat damage, which can lead to even more hair loss.
  • Tightly tying your hair might place undue strain on your roots. It has the potential to break and destroy your hair.
  • To coat your hair in nutrients, always use a serum.
  • Use a heat protectant spray or cream before applying any heat to your hair
  • Let your hair air-dry as long as you can
Hair loss from COVID-19 is completely reversible, it just may take some time to recover. With the help of a refreshed hair care routine that is void of harsh chemicals and heat, you can expect to see regrowth in up to 6 months!
