Children With Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss
Telogen effluvium name comes from the telogen phase of a regular hair growth cycle. The last phase where the hair follicle rests for a few months just before the healthy hair growth starts again with new hair. About 10% of hair is in the rest phase at all times. Sometimes, the normal cycle is interrupted, and a significant amount of hair goes into the telogen phase, and it shows as thin hair, bald spots, or complete baldness appears. Kids’ wigs always help when baldness occurs.

Once the stressful event is over, complete hair growth usually occurs within six months. Telogen effluvium hair loss often occurs in young infants due to the normal hair growth process in which mature hair replaces baby hair. Also, during adolescence, particularly in girls, due to the influences of female hormones, a noticeable hair loss can be seen during the regular rest phase of the hair cycle. Telogen effluvium affects children and adults. Furthermore, it is the most common cause of hair loss, second to male or female pattern baldness.
