A few times a year (which is a few too many) I go through a period of time of losing more hair then other times.
According to researchers, hair grows steadily in winter while shedding starts increasing in spring and reaches its maximum in fall to have 100 hairs shed in a day. The shedding also affects rate of hair re-growth.
The rate of seasonal hair shedding and hair re-growth can vary from person to person. Some people are prone to shed large amounts of hair but they soon can have their hair growth restored through quick hair re-growth with the change of season.
Losing your hair at any age can be a very traumatic experience, men and women find this experience can ruin their confidence and make them look years older. There are many reasons why your hair starts to thin out. Illness, medications, alopecia, menopause, and simply through your genes.
Here are some tips to give the illusion of fuller hair-
- Adding a deeper color
- Thickening hair shampoos
- Dry shampoo for days you don't have time to wash
- Don't brush it while it's wet (if you can help it)
