DALLAS - Aug. 25, 2020 - PRLog -- Coronavirus has no shortage of side effects and auxiliary complications. In addition to job loss, depression and anxiety, many are suffering unprecedented hair loss as they struggle to recover from the disease.

Certified Trichologist Kendra Timmons is addressing this timely medical crisis throughout August, National Hair Loss Awareness month. The hair restoration specialist says there has been a noticeable uptick in reports of hair loss since the pandemic began in March of this year. "I've been flooded with calls from women and men that are starting to see clumps of hair in the shower or in their combs and brushes," she explains. Timmons also predicts the trend will continue to escalate over the next few months. "This is the time frame that one would normally see excessive shedding due to the chronic stress that many people are experiencing because stress-induced hair loss typically shows up about 3 months after the stressful event.  Between now and the next couple of months, the impact of COVID-19 will definitely show up in more individuals."

Timmons' Hair Recovery Center focuses on treating clients with a multitherapeutic approach that addresses the condition both internally and externally. Her methods are proving successful for individuals who have lost their hair due to COVID-19, chemotherapy and hormonal changes. "By analyzing the scalp as well as the body's systems and finding the imbalances that may be causing an individual's hair loss, we are able to treat the whole person," explains Timmons. An FDA approved, non-invasive bio communication tool that assess the body's energy supplies and provides insight into their personal wellness is used to determine what supplemental support the client may need. Once that is identified, topical treatments such as detoxing clay, ozone therapy, laser therapy and dermarolling, all of which are minimally invasive, are used to stimulate the hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.

Though concerning, Timmons assures individuals there is hope in the battle against COVID-19 related hair loss! "A healthy diet consisting of protein, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and greens, exercise, great scalp hygiene and great hair care can help combat hair loss.  COVID-19 has created a lot of anxiety and stress in individuals that can lead to unhealthy eating, not to mention sickness including shortness of breath and high fever, all of which can lead to hair loss.  During this pandemic, to reduce hair fall, it's important to follow the general guidelines I mentioned along with stress management."

Timmons has been a licensed hair care professional for twenty-five years and began her study of Trichology in 2003. Trichology is the branch of medical and cosmetic study and practice concerned with the hair and scalp. She currently provides services to clients throughout the U.S. including California, Maryland, Arkansas and Texas and in Dubai.
