The Hair Growth Cycle

It’s probably fair to say that nobody wants to lose their hair suddenly. There are many reasons a man or woman could see a few more strands than usual in the sink or shower. If the cause is hereditary, androgenic alopecia, that progressive hair loss could lead them to a hair transplant. In Miami, we see people of all ages at our hair restoration clinic, and after careful assessment, sometimes it turns out they have seasonal hair loss instead. Do you know that several reasons for hair thinning or bald spots are actually temporary? Here, we’ll describe one of the causes and what can be done about it.

Hair Transplant in Miami – Each Spring People Come See Us for Advice

You may already be aware that it’s reasonable to lose between 150-200 hairs a day from your head. The hair growth cycle means that some hairs are actively growing while others rest and still others fall out to make room for new ones.

There are many theories as to why people might shed hair both in the late fall and in the early spring. During these seasons, people report more hair than usual falling out, but the phenomenon lasts only a month or two.

Depending on where you live, especially in colder climates, you might notice a more significant winter/spring fallout.

Treatment to Help Boost Hair Growth

If the timing sounds right, and you don’t suspect genetic, pattern baldness, then you could be experiencing temporary, seasonal shedding. It may be possible to lessen or low down the process with the following actions:

1. Don’t wear tight hairstyles. Braids, ponytails and buns that pull hair could remove more hairs than you need to lose. Traction alopecia is the name of a balding condition directly attributed to constant tension on the scalp.

2. Don’t use heavy or sticky hair styling products.

3. Eat plenty of protein and ensure you get all the vitamins and minerals your diet needs. Some people crash diet in the spring to try and shape up their beach body, but one of the unexpected drawbacks is that your hair could fall out if you’ve been depriving yourself of nutrients. Stay in shape with daily exercise and a whole food diet, and your hair will thank you for it.

4. Ask your doctor if any medications you’re taking could contribute to hair loss. There are circumstances where this is an unavoidable side effect, but if you report it to your doctor, there may be alternatives they can advise.
