"My hair really fell out with COVID,” she said, per US Magazine. "So after, it was really a struggle for a minute."

She also added that her sense of taste and smell was "the only thing that I didn't lose. But I had everything else — like anything else you can imagine."

The 37-year-old had COVID-19 back in March 2020 and detailed her symptoms in the penultimate season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

"It was really bad for a couple of days — vomiting and shaking and hot and then cold," she shared at the time. "I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache. My chest would burn when I cough."

"Let me tell you, that shit is real," she added in a hoarse voice. "But we’re all gonna get through this."

According to multiple reports, hair loss suffered during a COVID infection is entirely normal due to both physical and emotional stress. The number of people searching about hair loss on Google has skyrocketed, and a January study noted that 22% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in China reported hair loss six months later.
