Whether you like it or not, you and your hair are both slaves to the seasons’ ups and downs. When the sun is shining, you’re happy and your hair tends to grow faster. But when the sunny days are few and far between, your morale fades and your hair starts to fall out. Find out why…
In spring and especially in summer, hair growth is boosted by the sun’s rays. Your hair therefore grows faster. ‘But when autumn brushes summer aside, your hormones play tricks on you. These hormonal variations affect the hair bulb, causing more hair to fall out than usual’. But don’t panic, this phenomenon will only last for a month or two. ‘The effects may be worse for some people than others’.
There are a few things you can do and products you can use to help prepare your hair for this autumn hair loss. First of all, taking dietary supplements can help. ‘A balanced diet and dietary supplements packed with vitamins will help your hair through the season! Apply an intense treatment once a month to make your hair both shinier and more resistant’.
Massaging your scalp also helps boost blood circulation and encourages hair growth. ‘When washing your hair, massage your scalp with your fingertips for a good minute or two, really taking care to lift the skin’.
Wash your hair as often as you normally would. Your hair is not falling out as a result of you washing it too much. ‘Continue using shampoos and masks designed for your hair type and rinse thoroughly so as not to weigh the hair down’. Not rinsing your hair out properly will suffocate your hair and therefore cause it to fall out.
Our tip: If hair loss continues for longer than two months, or you’re find you’re losing hair when you shouldn’t be, try using an anti-hair loss treatment. Visit your dermatologist or ask your pharmacist for a suitable anti-hair loss treatment that can be applied straight to the hair.
