How to Keep Your Hair From Shedding This Fall!
As women, our bodies rely heavily on hormones, and slight changes can affect us positively or negatively. When seasons change, we often think about a change of wardrobe, allergies, and maybe the start/end of something. For some, these transition periods come with other unwanted factors. Part of dealing with the changing seasons is hair loss. Seasonal shedding occurs when a shift in environmental factors or even personal matters puts stress on our scalp and follicles, causing the hair to fall out. Of course, a lot of biology comes into play as well, but our focus today will be on how to take care of the hair in case you ever find yourself in such a situation.
Penny James, a trichologist in her years of research, found out that most people experience extra hair shedding in fall. Typically we shed about 100 hairs a day, but in fall, numbers rise. More research is being conducted on why this happens, but as soon as the explanation is made clear to the public, we will be happy to share more.
Hair usually falls from all over the scalp, not in one area, and everyone can experience seasonal hair loss, but it is essential to protect ourselves from the elements that may make your hair prone to loss.
Here are our two primary tips on how you can take care of your hair and avoid too much hair loss.
- To avoid sensational hair loss, keep your hair and scalp as healthy as possible. Take extra time and put in the effort. Use products that will strengthen your hair and, at the same time, keep your scalp hydrated and moisturized. A dry scalp can cause inflammation and hair loss. A great way to do this is by using a deep scalp cleanser once a week. Here is our recommended product list to start your hair protection routine. Click here to place an order.
- Tend to your hair and scalp by eating a protein-rich diet to heal your hair and scalp from the inside out.

While at the same time helping protect your hair.
With that being said, we hope you can get started on your hair care journey before it's too late. Remember, prevention is always better than cure. Treat your hair right, and it will glow and flourish throughout, even in the hair-shedding seasons.
