~Reduced hair loss across the whole scalp following pregnancy or an illness.
This name refers to widespread hair thinning following a major medical event. The most common such event is pregnancy and giving birth. Other such events include any serious illness or operation. The hair typically starts to shed a few weeks after the event and continues for a couple of months before making a good recovery in most patients.
