Winter Hair Loss Guide: How to Deal With Seasonal Hair Loss

Do you find yourself losing more hair than usual? Don't worry; you may just be experiencing seasonal hair loss. Seasonal hair loss is when one tends to experience more hair loss during certain times of the year. This phenomenon is entirely normal, especially during the colder and dryer months, such as during the fall or winter. This is due to the effects that dry and cooler air on the outside and dry, hot air (from our heaters) from the inside have on our scalp. The scalp is where the hair grows from, and proper care is essential to the hair's health and encouraging hair growth. When the scalp is dry, you may tend to experience irritation, flakes, and breakage, leading to hair loss or excessive shedding. Typically, we tend to lose up to 100 hairs per day, yet seeing more hairs than usual pilling up on your brush or drain could due to seasonal hair loss. If you are noticing bald patches or more severe hair loss patterns, we recommend contacting your primary care physician. However, if you feel like you are experiencing seasonal hair loss, then we have come up with a winter hair loss guide to help you!

1.Treat the scalp

First things first, you must target and treat your scalp. Ensuring that your scalp is being taken care of is the best way to help keep things at bay and combat the dryness that may lead to hair loss in the winter. One way to do this is by adding a scalp oil to your hair care routine and massaging it into the scalp. A second way is by trying a scalp therapy line that works to combat dryness of the scalp and hair directly. For example, Active Care's Deep-Cleansing Line is specially formulated with plant extracts and oils to help combat dryness, flakiness, and product buildup. The products work effectively by removing dirt and environmental impurities on the scalp and leaving the hair and scalp looking clean and nourished. For more information, tap here: 

2. Protect your Hair

Secondly, you must protect your hair. Now more than ever, you must use less heat on the hair, as more heat could lead to overexposure of dryness on the scalp and hair and lead to flakiness, breakage, and irritation. That is why, if you are going to use heat, we recommend using a heat protectant spray such as Nutrifuse's Thermal Spray, which protects strands against heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit while strengthening and reducing breakage. We recommend using a microfiber hair towel when drying your hair after washing it, as it helps retain moisture in the hair and use a wide-tooth comb when brushing wet hair to reduce hair loss. Switching from a regular pillowcase to a satin pillowcase has also shown improvements in hair health. It retains the hair's moisture and reduces friction against the hair and pillow, leading to frizz breakage overnight.

3. Instant Alternatives


Change up your diet, or try hair fibers to add volume and thickness to your already existing hair. Changing your diet can help strengthen and thicken the hair strands you already have, which helps restore hair loss experienced by seasonal hair loss. For example, switching to foods rich in Vitamin A, B Vitamins (B1, B6, B7, B9 B12), iron, zinc, and fatty acids have proven to help prevent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth. Some foods to consider include eggs, fish, carrots, avocados, nuts, and greens. However, if you are looking for a quicker and instant way to add volume and thickness to your hair to conceal any hair loss or thinning, we recommend trying Fiberbond's Hair Thickening Fibers. These fibers function by working together with the body's natural static charge to instantly attach thousands of small protein fibers that bond to your hair to create the immediate effect of fuller hair. See results in no time with hair fibers that will help you conceal seasonal hair loss.
