As I have shared in previous posts, changes in seasons can affect our hair and body. One visible result may be hair loss in the form of shedding. Fall is no exception. The Fall season itself does not directly cause hair loss. However, there are a few factors that can contribute to increased hair shedding during this time.
One factor may be stress. Some people experience stress during periods of transition, like the change of seasons. Another factor may be the changes in weather and humidity levels. These changes can affect the condition of your scalp and hair, potentially leading to increased hair shedding.
It's important to remember that hair shedding is a normal part of the hair growth cycle, and most people will experience some degree of hair shedding throughout the year. Here are a few of the common conditions that may lead to hair shedding and possible strategies that can be used to address them.
As the weather gets colder, the air tends to become drier, which can lead to dry skin and hair. It is important to moisturize your skin and scalp to combat dryness. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and apply a moisturizer to your skin regularly.
2. Change In Hair Texture
Some individuals may notice changes in their hair texture during the Fall. This can be due to the changes in humidity levels and temperature. It is important to adjust your hair care routine accordingly and use products that cater to your specific hair needs.
3. Skin Sensitivity
With the cooler weather, your skin may become more sensitive and prone to irritation. Protecting your skin using gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen can help minimize any adverse effects.
4. Seasonal Allergies
Fall brings with it a new set of allergens, such as mold and pollen, which can trigger seasonal allergies. Allergies can cause itchy eyes, sneezing, dryness, and a runny nose. Taking necessary precautions, like keeping windows closed and using air purifiers, can help alleviate these symptoms.
It is worth noting that everyone's experience can vary, and these effects may not be the same for everyone. It is always a good idea to pay attention to your body’s and hair's needs and make adjustments to your routine accordingly.
If you continue to encounter excessive hair loss or detect significant alterations in your hair, it is advisable to seek professional guidance. Consult with a dermatologist or a trichologist for a thorough evaluation and personalized recommendations.
