Telogen Effluvium

Condition that causes an increased number of hairs to enter the telogen, or resting phase of the hair cycle. It may be triggered by such causes as emotional trauma, major illness, major surgery, or other medically related conditions. Loss can included some thinning or in some cases complete hair loss. Hair usually grows back after small dormancy period.Since the hair can come out easily and complete re-growth of the hair is expected a temporary solution of a hair replacement system or a full wig can be used.
