Children not attending schools and trying to stay safe during these stressful times with the latest

During these stressful times our bodies can react in ways we do not notice immediately.

Normal shedding is between 50-100 hairs a day. Some
doctors say it could be as high as a 150 hairs a day.
If you are home and not washing every day it is may not be noticeable. Since you may not brush

It usually shows up to 2-6 months after the stress has occurred to the body and is gradual so you do not notice the
