If it is telogen effluvium, the hair will come back, as you are losing hairs that are in the telogen- or resting phase. Only time can treat telogen effluvium. Nevertheless, you should seek out a specialist for a proper evaluation- i would suggest a dermatologist. Congratulations on your delivery! ...Read more
