Anagen Effluvium

Anagen effluvium is a rapid amount of hair loss in a short period of time. This is usually the result of an environmental shock. The hairs stop growing although they are in the anagen (growing) phase.

Hair becomes brittle, weak and fractured and breaks away easily.

This can be due to Chemotherapy or those with Alopecia Areata can also be susceptible.
