Cope with the signs of seasonal hair loss

Cope with the signs of seasonal hair loss that occurs during the spring season
Reverse the effects of seasonal hair loss and enjoy the spring season. Let us take a look at the root causes and remedies for seasonal hair loss.
Every year, countless people suffer from unexpected hair loss. Women begin to notice significant hair fall in the spring season, which is called seasonal hair loss. Around this time of year, they become aware of the excessive hair loss during washing or brushing. However, hair loss cannot exceed the physiological rate. On an average, it is close to the lowest limit of 50 hair strands a day, and during the periods of seasonal hair loss, it reaches the upper limit of 100 hair strands a day. Human hair is in the growth phase for around two and six years. At any given time, 90 percent of our hair is growing, and the remainder of 10% is in a resting state for two to six months. The whole process is repeated after the resting period. Women have the highest proportion of resting hair in spring, and this pattern is indeed evolutionary.
Here are a few causes and what you can do to combat seasonal hair loss.

Dermal adjustments
The skin experiences hair loss in spring season. Whether it becomes oilier or dryer in the winters, you can easily understand the weather effects on the texture of the skin. The same goes for the scalp texture as it keeps changing.
Clogged pores
During the spring months, your scalp tends to sweat more and become clogged. The clogged follicles could be one of the major culprits for seasonal hair loss. It is crucial to keep the hair clean and dry in all weather conditions.

Sun/UV over-exposure
Just like the skin on your body, the scalp does not take the UV rays well. UV rays can damage the hair follicles and make it dry. It is important to protect your head and reduce the extent of seasonal hair loss.

Medications can trigger the problem of hair shedding in spring. Certain medications such as retinoids, which is prescribed for acne, can cause hair loss. Other causes could be beta-blockers (for high blood pressure), anticoagulant (blood-thinning) drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs and antidepressants. It is recommended to consult a doctor and then take the medications.

Lack of sunlight:
On the flip side, the deficiency of sun rays or vitamin D can be the cause of hair fall in larger clumps. This malnutrition prevents the scalp from absorbing nutrients
Symptoms of seasonal hair loss
Everyone has a different scalp and hair type, thus the symptoms vary considerably. You can detect hair loss if you notice more hair than usual on your comb or if the pattern of thinning is different. Hair could be falling out in certain areas or evenly throughout your head. Pay close attention to the condition of your scalp and check if it seems drier than usual.
Hair fall treatment
Hot oil massage
Start conducting hot oil treatments on a weekly basis, especially if your hair is curly or frizzy. Regardless of the season, this habit is worth your time and efforts. It is helpful especially in the colder months when the scalp is dry. You can use coconut or Jojoba oil that will work better in eliminating hair loss.
Henna pack
Henna is useful for strengthening the brittle roots and conditioning the hair. Whether it is the spring or autumn season, it helps beats dandruff and makes the hair soft. This is a highly popular and effective hair fall treatment for everyone.

Avoid harsh styling products
If you want to maintain your hair’s health, then stay away from styling products. These products include mousses, hair gels and other products that make your hair sticky. If you naturally have beautiful tresses, do not iron, perm or color them. Excessive use can make your hair dry and brittle.

Eliminate the stress
Stress could be the main reason for seasonal hair loss, especially for women. Chronic stress can push the immune system into overdrive and make the white blood cells attack the hair follicles. Adopt a peaceful lifestyle and try meditation. Breathing techniques could also help with stress.

Comb your hair frequently
To fight the problem of seasonal hair loss, women need to brush the hair more often. It helps stimulate the blood circulation and get rid of dead hair.
Cover your hair 
Avoid damage from sunlight and use protective clothing like scarves and hats. Strong UV rays attack the scalp and make your hair dry. Use a scarf to cover the hair when you leave the house after a hair wash and when your hair is wet.

Remember that the scalp on your head is skin too, and you need to take care of it. Seasonal hair loss is a part of the hair growth cycle so it can be treated with some efforts and precautions. Follow some of these remedies and prevent seasonal hair shedding effectively.
