Your hair grows in cycles. Follicles go through a growth phase and then a rest phase. From the rest phase, they go back into the growth phase. Hair loss occurs when the rest phase becomes longer and eventually overtakes the growth phase. In autumn, because the hair gets less sunlight, it can start falling out faster. Sunlight is necessary for hormone production that activates the growth cycle. Seasonal hair loss especially affects women. According to maneimagehair.com, here are some tips to keep your autumn hair loss in check.
- A lack of nutrients can cause hair loss or make it worse if it’s already happening. We recommend superfoods like apples, pears, pumpkin, squash, turnips, pomegranates, and citrus fruits.
- Hair-regulating hormones are impacted by vitamin D. The best way to get it is to spend time in the sun. So consider taking walks in the autumn weather. Alternatively, if you’re too busy to be in the sun a lot, consider taking a vitamin D supplement.
- Massage your scalp every day. While it’s not necessary for most women to wash their hair every day, take some time out to give your hair some love. Massaging the scalp helps with blood flow and circulation and helps keep your hair strong.
- Stress is a major factor behind hair loss in women. As autumn begins, the holiday season approaches and those who have kids know the stress of going back to school. Try to keep your stress in check by doing things you enjoy. Whether it’s a short walk, yoga, mindfulness, exercise, or just unwinding with a cup of tea.
- Consider a shorter haircut and fixing your split ends. Autumn hair loss is most pronounced in the first weeks of autumn, so try to get an appointment during that time.
Finally, don’t settle for hair loss. A little hair loss during autumn is normal but if you feel you are losing more hair than you should, consider other options. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we offer a wide range of hair restorations options.
