Since autumn started, have you noticed that your hair has been falling out a lot and you don't understand why? I started noticing that my hair density was decreasing a little bit, but since a month ago the hair loss has become considerable, so I started to investigate why it could be.
Apparently, although hair loss is something very common in men and may be due to many causes, if you've noticed that since autumn began your hair falls out more, as with me, let me tell you that we are not crazy. And everything has an explanation, doesn't it?
This type of hair loss is nothing more and nothing less than seasonal hair loss (or telogen effluvium, as it is commonly called). In order for you to understand me better, I will tell you that this hair loss is a consequence of a change in the capillary cycle of our hair.
Por lo general, esta alteración del ciclo del cabello produce una disminución de los nutrientes que le llegan al cuero cabelludo, haciendo que el pelo se caiga bruscamente. Sin embargo, esta pérdida de melena suele ser temporal y debido a factores como pueden ser el estrés o el cambio de estación.
Yes, you heard right! The change of season directly affects our hair, as we go from a high sun exposure to a decrease in sun exposure and a considerable drop in temperature. This fact, therefore, affects the production of hormones in our body, which means that not as many nutrients reach our scalp.
In addition, the stress caused by the return to routine after the holidays can also cause this temporary hair loss or telogen effluvium.
However, you should not worry too much about this aesthetic problem, because a few weeks after the hair loss, the hair root is activated again and in 3 or 4 months your hair will look as healthy and as strong as before.
However, if you feel that you have made a number of lifestyle changes that should help your hair to grow and you are still experiencing more hair loss than usual, you should consider seeing a specialist to determine the specific cause of your hair loss.
Anyway, if seasonal hair loss or telogen effluvium worries you too much, read the following article, because you might be interested in the different tips I leave you so that your hair does not fall out so much in autumn.
