In brief: Stress-related
Telogen effluvium is usually caused by one or more major stresses to the body.
These can include rapid weight loss, a major surgery, general anesthesia, high fever, having a baby or stopping birth control pills, a death in the family or any other major stress like these. The hairloss is usually over the entire scalp, but not all hair falls out. Generally, the hair will grow back.
