Why does hair loss increase in autumn?
The sudden worsening of climatic conditions, combined with a physiological hair replacement, bring both women and men to noticing a substantial increase in hair loss when seasons change, particularly in autumn, between September and November.
Hair loss increase is physiological in nature, and, for this reason, it is often not cause for concern (unlike pathological cases which require a hair consultation) during certain periods of the year. Temperature changes bring animal and plant organisms to adapt to survive and endure the toughest temperatures awaiting us in the winter. Just think about leaves falling off trees, but also even greater hair loss in animals. The same happens to men and women!
In addition, the reasons that may otherwise affect hair loss can be manifold: genetic, hormonal, somatic and the result, for example, of greater stress for the body to bear (such as very fast weight changes).
Furthermore, let us not forget that even air pollution and smog can contribute to greater hair loss, caused by hair bulb choking resulting from the deposit of a layer of toxins on the scalp, which prevents the skin from breathing correctly. Hence, the importance of performing regular scalp peeling. > Herbs & Clay
In addition, it is important not to underestimate the stress that our scalp has undergone during the recent summer months: direct sunlight, high temperatures and moisture, salt and chlorine, bad hydration and too frequent shampoos can increase hair loss in the months ahead!
