Seven ways to counteract seasonal hair loss
Imagine this scenario: you’re washing your hair, you’ve rinsed out the shampoo, and as you go to apply your conditioner… The horror! You find clumps of hair in your hands as you comb through it with your fingers. You noticed your hair was looking a bit dull and damaged as the summer was coming to an end, but you had no idea it was this bad!
We know it can be scary, but before you sound the hair-emergency alarms, take a deep breath. Let’s take a look at why this happens and discover some useful tips that can help you tackle this problem and keep your hair looking full and shiny all year round!
What causes hair loss
Why are you suddenly shedding more hair than your lint roller can handle? Well, to truly understand this, we first need to look at the growth cycles of hair.
There are three stages to the hair growth cycle: it has a growing phase, an intermediary phase, and a resting phase. After the resting phase, your hair enters the final phase, which is when hair strands are released from their follicles and fall out.
We can go through these cycles at different rates and at different times in our lives and throughout the year. So, why might you notice more hair shedding at the end of the summer and the start of autumn? It’s likely that the change in temperatures puts more stress on your scalp and follicles.
But how can you tell if it’s just a temporary problem or something you should worry about? If you only notice it around the same time each year, and your hair isn’t falling out from just one spot, it’s likely seasonal hair loss. Eventually, your hair will cycle back into a growth phase.
While you can’t entirely stop seasonal hair loss, we’ve prepared a handy list of things you can do to keep it to a minimum for beautiful hair every day of the year!
7 tricks to tame hair shedding
1. Protect your hair
Just like your skin, your precious locks can be damaged by the sun, sea, sand, and other environmental factors. Protecting it can help reduce the stress on hair follicles that can make your hair fall out. Use nourishing, protective lotions and oils, and cover up with a stylish hat or scarf when the sun or cold weather is really extreme.
2. Conditioner is your BFF
A nourishing conditioner will keep your hair hydrated and looking shiny and luscious, which is especially important during seasonal transitions. Hydrated hair is less prone to breakage and shedding. And here’s a pro tip: rinse it out with cold water to seal those pores and keep your scalp clean for longer.
3. Snip those split ends
Regular trims keep your hair looking fab and help you ditch those split ends. By removing these annoying troublemakers, you’re preventing additional hair loss due to breakage, especially during seasonal changes when hair is more vulnerable.
4. Switch up your style
Rocking the same ponytail or updo day in and day out? Tight hairstyles can be tough on your hair, especially if you resort to the same style over and over. By switching up your look, you’re reducing constant tension on the same hair follicles, which can be especially beneficial during periods of increased hair shedding. Let your locks flow freely most of the time - and if you’re annoyed with your hair getting in your face, a cute headband can do the trick.
5. Skip the heat
Excessive heat-styling can dry out your hair and even burn your scalp. If you have the option, air dry your hair. If you do use a hair dryer, use it on a lower heat setting to minimise the damage and keep the nozzle moving constantly to not overheat the scalp. And if you like curly hairstyles, replace your curling wand with a heatless curling set instead.
6. Gentle brushing
Rough detangling can cause you to pull out hair prematurely or cause unnecessary hair breakage. On wet hair, always use a wide-tooth comb or a brush designed for wet brushing and start from the tips, working your way up to the roots slowly to avoid breakage. Make sure you use good-quality combs and brushes and avoid heavy-handed brushing.
7. Lengthen, strengthen, and repair your hair with a supplement!
One of the best ways to reduce hair shedding and support growth is feeding your hair from the inside out. A natural hair supplement full of hair-nurturing ingredients could be your ticket to less shedding and fabulous hair!
