What are the Causes of Anagen Effluvium?

Chemotherapy and radiation treatments are the common reason behind the anagen effluvium. However other causes of anagen effluvium are as illness, major physical trauma, crash diets, menopause, severe psychological stress, major surgery and severe blood loss, etc.

Chemotherapy is a famous cancer treatment which can stop mitotic process or cell division in hair. It can inhibit certain delicate structures present in the follicle as the dermal papilla and the hair bulb. They both are necessary for normal hair growth.

Anagen effluvium due to chemotherapy is temporary and in most cases hairs regrow to normal after the treatment is finished. However sometimes the texture can be different of the regrown hair.
