Weather Changes and hair loss
Weather Changes and hair loss
There are many causes of hair loss and the most common is genetic. However there are other less common causes of hair loss one of which is weather changes. In general there are some hair loss related to cold or warm weather that is associated with seasonal changes. In addition to normal daily hair loss of 50 to 100 strands per day, it is natural and healthy to lose more hair in warm weather or to experience more hair growth during the winter. However, weather changes occasionally contribute to unusual excessive hair loss.
During fall and winter seasons with cold, dry weather hair loss could worsen due to dietary changes, stress, or other factors. Cold air combined with the drying effects of central heat can result in brittle ends and fragile strands that break easily. If your hair is already damaged, the drying effect will further cause it to fall off. In addition, the cold weather can affect the overall health of your scalp and make the hair more brittle. To make the hair less brittle, hair masks and natural hair treatments could help.
As oppose to cold weather hair loss, losing hair during warm weather is usually normal. In the same way that many animals shed, it is normal for the human body to regulate temperature with the loss of unneeded extra hair. For some people though, the heat and intense summer sun can cause additional dryness on the scalp just like in the winter time. In both cold and warm conditions, if the scalp or the hair shaft is dry, the hair becomes brittle and start to fall off.
In any case, If you are experiencing significant hair loss, it is a good idea to visit a hair restoration specialist to find out the cause for your hair loss and get the proper hair treatment option. Hair restoration doctor can evaluate your hair loss, make the diagnosis and offer treatment options that can be beneficial. In most cases if the hair loss is temporary and it is related to seasonal changes and the weather, it can be reversed. If the underlying condition that is causing increased hair loss is removed in some cases the hair will come back. In addition, a little change in daily routine can be helpful. By reducing blow drying and using chemical hair treatments to process the hair during the dry weather, you may reduce the chances of the hair loss. In addition, to make the hair less brittle, hair masks and natural hair oil treatments could help.
