Question about Chronic telogen. Will my hair go back to normal once this issue clears?

In general your hair should grow back after telogen phase of hair loss. If you are concerned follow up with your doctor.
Does hair go back to normal after CTE?
Chronic telogen effluvium can take 1-15 years to resolve so shutting off the abnormal shedding may or may not be an easy task.
What helps CTE? After treating many women I can tell you it's challenging. Low level laser, minoxidil, lysine, platelet rich plasma, biotin can be tried. Changes in diet and destressing don't help.
It's a complex condition that is poorly understood.
When the shedding stops, will your hair return to normal? That depends entirely on whether you have developed a second hair loss condition along the way (such as genetic hair loss or age related hair loss). If you have developed a second condition, your hair might not return to the same density once the CTE stops. But some patients do experience improvement.
