Treatment for Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss 

The treatment for telogen effluvium depends on the cause. If the trigger is stress, for example, the stress must be addressed to see hair growth improvement. Remember that people can shed hair during certain seasons, much like animals. So depending on where you live, it may take a season or two for your hair to return to the active phase.

Prescription drugs are commonly used to treat telogen effluvium hair loss. A dermatologist can prescribe something that stimulates the hair follicles. 

A study published in the 2010 Dermotol Online Journal did a Medline search from 1955 to 2009, looking at the connection between vitamin D and hair loss. The results suggest that vitamin D may affect anagen initiation, thus treating hair loss.
