A differential diagnosis for female pattern hair loss could include telogen effluvium, chronic telogen effluvium, loose anagen syndrome, and cicatricial alopecia.
The sample also can be used to compare anagen and telogen hair counts.
RESTING, known as the telogen stage - about 10 per cent of scalp hairs are in
After the end of pregnancy the follicles in which anagen has been prolonged rapidly enters catagen followed by telogen leading to telogen effluvium, which is evident for 6-16 weeks.
In our study, telogen effluvium was noticed in 25.00 percent of the patients and 1.78 percent of the patients presented with hirsutism.
Through selection for increased production, Finewool and Strongwool Merinos have become 'non shedding' and only a small percentage of follicles remain in the inactive catagen or telogen phases of the hair cyle (Ryder, 1960).
The most common, telogen effluvium, is often brought on by a distressing event such as a bereavement, divorce or losing your job.

Three types of alopecia have been described in patients with SLE: 1) discoid lesions with associated scarring alopecia; 2) a diffuse non- scarring alopecia with transient hair loss related to the activity of the disease (a telogen effluvium like picture); and 3) lupus hair which is an unusual type of non-scarring alopecia characterized by thin, weakened hair at the periphery of the scalp.
In recent research, this combination of ingredients has shown positive effects on the growth of hair by increasing the number of hairs in the growth Anagen state, and a decrease in the numbers of hairs moving into the dormant Telogen state.
