Hello ..‘Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum’.
Telogen effluvium is a scalp disorder characterized by massive hair loss as a result of early entry of hairs into the telogen phase..
sudden or severe stress are one of the main factors.
other causes are anaemia. errors in diet.. hormonal imbalance..
do not worry it can be successfully treated with the help of internal homeoapthic medicines..
consume almonds figs raisins anjeer ,khajur,flax seeds daily
any sesonal fruit ,juices,coconut water or dried coconut.. sprouts, spinach etc
take rest and sleep.. do dep breathing exercise..
check ur hb,tsh and s.ferritin levles
wishing you good health..

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Telogen hair is one kind of hair out of three stages in hair cycle which has a white end at the root..this is a falling stage of hair cycle...normally also it is lost from scalp(esp when you comb your hair you see certain hair get stuck in the comb & these hair have white ends )....When there is any kind of stress or any chronic illness ,body tends to loose these telogen hair in greater number...that means that your growing hair shifts to falling hair faster...As in your case you shifted from india to US...which is nothing but a stressful stage....and thats an important reason for loosing telogen hair...It can easily be treated india we get a solution called MINOXIDIL lotion which can be used twice daily for at least 3 months for good result.In USA you get this by the name of ROGAIN..If this is not an OTC preparation there ,you need to consult a dermatologist for the prescription.You can also take tab biotin along with this.Other causes of hair loss in females is iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,or use of chemical on scalp ,procedures like perming or straightening etc. Other rare causes are zn & copper def. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat.
take care,
