When summer is giving one final short performance and is gradually bowing out to the first harbingers of autumn, many people wonder if there really is a direct relationship between this season’s arrival and a greater hair loss.
The questions in relation to this problem are so many that we have resorted to some studies that have been carried out in this regard. Most of them agree that it is normal for us to be subjected to a greater hair loss during the change of season and especially from summer to autumn.
According to a study, published in the prestigious “British Journal of Dermatology”, in which hundreds of people of 8 different countries were enrolled within a ten-year period, it can be said that hair loss increases in seasonal changes.
As this report states, hair, in response to the human being evolution, has had the function of providing us with heat, so during the warmer seasons we tend to lose more follicles than during the colder ones.
That is the reason why during the spring we can notice a loss of volume that lasts until the arrival of Autumn, a period during which the hair cycle is inevitably subject to being sped up in order to regenerate most of hair with the new and warmer ones.
How much hair is normal for us to lose?
As we have been repeating to a sickening degree in this blog, specialized in hair health, the average daily hair loss – both in men and women – is between 50 and 100 hair follicles. This amount could be increased to 150 hair during seasonal changes.
However, if any fall exceeds these figures, it would be advisable to consult a doctor as soon as possible, since this noticeable loss is considered on the edge from what is known as the natural cycle of hair growth.
This cycle extends between 2 and 6 years and ends with the old follicle fall to give rise to the new ones. After a period of three months, during which we will experience an occasional loss of volume and density of our hair, over time it will disappear.
In any case, as we usually repeat in this website, if we notice an unusual loss of hair, the best thing we can do is to consult a specialist to check if it is due to a seasonal change, to a deficit feeding, to stress, to a hormonal change, to the intake of certain medicinal substances, to the organism response to some treatment or if the fall is the result of an alopecia that we have to treat as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading throughout the scalp.
However, if this is our case, we have to remember that we can resort to hair transplantation and recover all lost hair through the technique of hair grafting. It is an interventation procedure in which we are specialists in Capiclinic, the clinic that offers results with a lifetime guarantee at unbeatable prices.
