Are you super stressed right now (from a recent break-up or huge project at work)?
Extra shedding after a bout of high stress is likely telogen effluvium, says Dr Gohara. Sounds scary, but it’s pretty normal to experience occasionally. An isolated period of pressure forces 40 percent of your strands to stop growing, lie dormant, then fall out three
months later. Sexy-hair secret: As long as you chill ASAP (yoga, anyone?), your growth will return to normal in a few months, says Dr Gohara. Scalp-stimulating serums (like the Schwarzkopf Professional, one here) can also help kick-start hair growth.
