Increased hair loss is often observed in the autumn. What could be the reason for this?
Seasonal cycles of hair growth
Hair has its own growth cycle, including an active growth phase (anagen), a transitional phase (catagen), and a resting phase (telogen). In the autumn, hair follicles can enter a resting phase called telogen hair loss. This is how the body shuts off, in its opinion, non-vital organs from “feeding”.
Change of weather
The transition from warm summer to cool autumn affects the scalp. Dry air and temperature changes can make hair more brittle and prone to falling out. Likewise, climate change reduces the body’s overall immunity, which can lead to exacerbation of chronic diseases, especially of the gastrointestinal tract. This reduces the absorption processes of nutrients, which are particularly necessary for hair growth.
The start of the school year or work after the holidays, as well as preparing for the winter and holiday season can be stressful. Stress can contribute to hair loss. Thanks to cortisol, the vessels of the dermal papilla spasm, therefore, the trophism of the hair follicle decreases, which contributes to the transition of hair into the telogen phase – rest, and then leads to hair loss.
In the summer period, people eat more fruits and vegetables, and in the autumn period, the diet changes, which affects the condition of the hair. Lack of certain vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc and vitamin D, can lead to hair loss.
It is important to note that increased hair loss in the autumn period is usually a temporary phenomenon. But no one cancelled the prevention of this process!
