No one wants to lose their hair. Realizing that your mane is slowly thinning, or your hairline is receding can be a scary situation. This normally happens at a barely perceptible rate. You only realize because your hair looks different than it did a few months ago. However, you may have been unlucky enough to find large clumps coming out. Finding more than a few strands in your comb’s teeth is panic-inducing.
Fortunately, the condition causing this sudden hair loss is likely temporary. It is most likely telogen effluvium.
