‘Because since I did the Lives on Facebook, and I did two Lives. I did a Live with Greg Williams about hair transplants and the following week I did a really nice Live with Shabir at Victoria Health and with Josh Wood. 

‘And this was pre-my hair starting to fall out, so it’s very fortuitous, it’s very odd and not like tempting fate, the opposite of that really.’ 

Trinny, who was seen wearing a bright fuchsia shirt and dewy make-up, revealed her hair started falling out shortly after her discussions with the hair and health experts. 

 ‘About a week after I did both those Lives, I started to notice that whenever I did that…’ she said as she ran her hand through her chestnut locks, pulling out a chunk of hair in the process.

Placing the strands in front of the camera, she continued: ‘I started to get – I don’t know if you can see here how much hair I’m getting each time I do that but like this. 

‘I’m just collecting my hair at the moment.’

She proceeded to show a transparent container full of hair as she tried to keep track of her hair loss. 

‘There will probably be more hair in this then there is on my head soon. 

‘I’m being sarcastic because I don’t want to get stressed by it but I do want to have an action plan and I want to chat to you about it and I just thought, what always eases my mind is sharing.’

Trinny then revealed the names of several trichologists recommended to her as she asserted her hair loss is due to coronavirus and stress, not because of the menopause. 

Trichology is the study of diseases or problems related to the hair and scalp and was founded in 1902. 

According to Sky News, nearly a quarter of Covid sufferers will experience hair loss within six months of contracting the illness, with women at a higher risk. 

Research into long-term symptoms in Wuhan, China, discovered that 359 out of 1,655 hospital patients who had the virus suffered from hair loss.  

Captioning the Instagram discussion, Trinny added: ‘Sunday afternoon chat a bit of hair loss and more.

‘Hair loss has been on my mind this week still coming out quite happily I’ve been to the doctor I know that it is a post Covid symptom and it’s three months since I’ve had Covid which is a cycle of hair after stress that can actually shed so this week I’m going to focus on meeting a few good experts and I’ll share with you any interesting things I find out.

‘Do leave your comments below with your own hair loss stories and remedies as it will help everyone is who is watching.’  

Trinny first shared her worries earlier this month after losing a clump of hair in the shower but didn’t initially give a specific reason why. 

The TV personality took to Instagram to admit her locks were ‘coming out a lot’ and said she was trying to ‘compensate’ her hair loss fears with a strong make-up look.

Trinny shared a picture of a clump of her hair after taking a shower to her Story, which she captioned: ‘This came out my hair in the shower this morning…’

The fashionista, who recovered from Covid in January, went on to share a makeup tutorial video where she admitted she was probably ‘worrying about nothing’.

Trinny opted for a strong eye makeup look and said: ‘I’m trying today, to do quite a strong eye makeup to compensate for the hair loss.’

She added: ‘It’s silly, I’m worrying about nothing but it was coming out a lot. If you’re interested about hair loss, do go onto [my] Facebook [page] if you can.’

After applying her eye makeup, Trinny admitted: ‘When you’re having a day where you’re feeling a bit, “blah, maybe” put on some colour ladies!’

The presenter has previously spoke about hair loss and in 2018 she shared an Instagram video where she discussed her ‘damaged’ tresses. 

Trinny admitted that she used to have ‘over processed, broken off and thin hair’ but after overhauling her regime her locks were ‘twice as thick’. 

She said: ‘Many of you ask about the thickness of my hair, one day it was very thin, lank and over processed due to too many products on it with heat.’

Trinny then showed off her luscious brunette locks and added: ‘Today I feel like a Dulux dog in a sauna as there’s so much of it!’

The presenter listed the supplements she had been taking, encouraging her fans to seek medical advice before consuming if taking medicine.

Trinny revealed she was having biotin, Superior Hair and IoniCell capsules and that they were her ‘three favourite supplements’.

Research shows that hair loss effects 50 per cent of women at some point in their lives. 

It can be caused by a variety of factors including stress, a shift of hormones during menopause, low iron or a vitamin D deficiency.

In July,  Dr. Sandra Lee, best known as Dr. Pimple Popper, explained that people who are shedding a seemingly alarming amount of hair are likely experiencing pandemic-induced telogen effluvium, a form of temporary hair loss that occurs after stress.

‘Right now, we’re seeing a lot of people in our offices complaining about hair loss,’ she said in a TikTok video. 

‘People are noticing their hair is falling out. They are freaking out. That’s normal to freak out, but let me tell you why it’s happening and why your hair is going to grow back.’ 

The California-based physician explained that the hair growth cycle has three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen.

The anagen phase is the growth phase, which lasts about three to five years. It is followed by the catagen phase, a short transitional phase that signals the end of active growth and lasts a few weeks.

In the final phase, the telogen phase, strands are released and fall out. This ‘death’ phase, as Dr. Pimple Popper calls it, lasts three to six months.

‘People can have a condition — it’s really common — called telogen effluvium,’ she said. 

‘If you notice that your hair is falling out now, it could be from a stressful event you experienced three to six months ago like childbirth, like COVID, like stressful events related to COVID. We are seeing a lot of this now.’

What factors influence female hair loss? 

Research shows hair loss effects 50percent of women at some point in their lives. 

 It can be caused by a variety of factors including stress.

Other factors can include the use of contraceptives with synthetic progesterone.

A shift of hormones during menopause can impact it as well. 

Some women experience hair loss when they are low in iron.

A lack of vitamin D can also lead to hair loss.
