How COVID-19 Survivors Can Deal with Hair Loss
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a whole new reality for the entire world. Many have survived the mysterious virus making a full recovery. There is also a new emerging group called “long-haulers” who are now battling other lingering health issues including hair loss.
“There’s been at least a 25 percent increase in people coming in with hair loss, and that’s from a place of already being busy dealing with hair disorders,” According to Dr. Dendy Engelman, a dermatologist at Manhattan Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery. “It’s not yet documented on major medical sites as a symptom, but patients show me their positive test results.”
An impaired immune system, increased levels of stress and highly emotional factors from the virus can also trigger hair loss. Actress, Alyssa Milano recently documented her hair loss revelation on her social media as she brushed through her wet hair and picked out chunks of strands from her brush. Many have also posted to social media sharing their experience with hair loss caused by the novel coronavirus.
“Patients have literally come in with bags of hair looking like a full head of hair was in the bag,” says Dr. Michele S. Green, a dermatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. “They all have similar stories. That they were extremely sick with high fevers and have never been that sick in their entire lives.”
The shock of losing one’s hair is definitely traumatic. It can take a devastating emotional toll resulting in low self-esteem, anxiety and possible depression. There are remedies to help deal with hair loss including taking nutritional supplements to help promote hair growth. Many women also resort to wigs or wefts to help remedy their hair situation, but there are other more natural-looking, permanent hair replacement options that can change women’s lives.
SECRETS tape extensions are a new, unique innovation from Hairdreams® preferred by stylists to help fill in thinning hair. SECRETS are invisible tape extensions where high-quality human hair is attached to and discreetly integrates into one’s own hair once applied. Unlike other tape extensions, the hair looks like it literally is growing out of the adhesive strips. In reality, SECRETS are tape extensions that feature an innovative proprietary ‘3D-Imprint’ manufacturing technology which makes the hair look like it’s growing right out of the scalp. And at the same time creating a "push-up effect" as it literally helps lift the hair at the roots creating a volumizing, perfectly natural-looking effect on the crown.
Thanks to the SECRETS even customers with very fine and thinning hair can now achieve perfect results! The SECRETS tape extensions are densely packed with real hair and have up to 2x more hair than conventional tape extensions. They look so natural that no one would ever believe that it is not one’s own, real hair. And they’re practically invisible and so discreet, that you are able to apply these much higher on the head compared to any other extensions on the market.
Specifically created for severe hair loss and thinning hair, Hairdreams® features its patented MicroLines hair thickening system, which is hand-crafted, customized hair toppers that are placed on the top of the head. It is hand-crafted with a micro-fine net that has a high quality, premium 100% real hair knotting technique and is invisibly integrated into one‘s own hair. Unlike with standard hair pieces, wefts and wigs, the added Hairdreams® hair will become "one” with one’s own natural hair. MicroLines are worn permanently and allow for a normal, active lifestyle which may include sports, such as swimming or just letting hair blow in the wind while riding in a convertible. Plus, they feel just like one’s own natural hair. These unique features have made MicroLines the best hair extensions for hair thickening (on top of the head) in the world.
