Hi Guys,
Today we’re discussing Winter Hair Loss - why it happens - and what you can do about it!

It’s natural for us to lost 100 hairs per day - this is a natural part of the hair growth and shedding cycle.


We have over 100,000 hair follicles on our head and they go through three main phases, growth, resting and shedding. 
If you feel that you’re losing more than 100 hairs per day there could be a number of reasons for this including:
  • Stress
  • Hereditary hair loss - including male pattern baldness
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Illnesses
  • Medications or treatments you might be having.
  • Can the seasons have an effect on our hair loss?

Extra shedding

Seasonal hair loss occurs predominantly in the early winter months, or October, November and December  - it can  affect men and women with or without ahair loss condition.
 
There are lots of potential reasons why it’s suggested that this occurs! 
 
One theory is that the sun causes inflamed hair follicles which then cause hair to shed a number of months later, coinciding with the beginning of winter. 
 
Other theories revolve around sweating more in summer, and the influence on our bodies (and follicles) of thestress of the summer heat.
 
Also just like our canine companions – we shed hair as the weather grows colder in order to grow a thicker head of hair to keep us warm through the winter. Whatever the cause, it is important to differentiate between temporary hair loss and the permanent genetic condition male pattern baldness.

Address your lifestyle:


Smoking, vaping, alcohol, junk food and stress have been proven to speed up hair loss. 
Seriously consider quitting these  and reduce your alcohol intake.


Scalp care 
 
Take the time to exfoliate your scalp - clear it of dead skin cells, you will really notice the difference.


 
Scalp massage:
Massaging your scalp with DHT Blocking Hair Oils, such as mixing Olive or Coconut Oil with Lavender Oil, Primrose or Peppermint Oil will help to boost circulation at the scalp. 
 
Healthy circulation means all the nutrients from all your food and smoothies are getting to your scalp, nourishing the hair, giving it the best possible chance for healthy hair growth!
 
Avoid heat styling - this can just make your hair more dry and brittle.
 
Use a paraben and sulphate free shampoo.
 
Try a hair mask
 
If you can - try a lovely soft microfibre towel.
