Telogen effluvium is self-correcting. It is really not influenced by any treatment that can be given. However, gentle handling of the hair, avoiding over-vigorous combing, brushing and any type of scalp massage are important. If you suffer from telogen effluvium or hair loss, a full head of hair may seem like nothing more than a dream. You’ve have to cope with the frustration and hopelessness that comes with sudden hair loss, and just can’t seem to find a way to put an end to the shedding cycle.
