Primary causes include:
- Long-term stress.
- Sudden shocks.
- Hormonal problems.
- Poor diet.

Telogen Effluvium becomes chronic if you experience continuous hair loss for six months or more. The chronic condition is more common in females. The most common reason is usually anemia, thyroid disease, or pregnancy.

- Thinning of hair, which is more pronounced on top of the scalp.
