Fall or autumn is the season when not just only leaves fall but your hair too.
Yes, this is that time of the year when hair fall is the major problem. In other words, the new definition for the fall season is “the season of hair fall, dry itchy scalp”. Hair cells are the second fastest produced cell and thus they are the first thing to suffer from changed bodily functions. Not just in the autumn season but there are other reasons which are responsible for unexpected hair fall.
Allow me to explain the reasons
Medicine And Crash Diet
Humans are not perfect and in the race of presenting themselves perfectly in front of this oxymoron society, they tend to do things which can damage their body. Going on a crash diet means that you are not taking proper nutrients according to the need of the body. Hence, the body goes weak and deprived of the essential vitamins and minerals. This directly affects the hair growth and a major amount of hair is lost during this time. Also, people who are suffering from hormonal disorders like thyroid or regularly take immunosuppressant, suffer from terrific hair fall.
Iron deficiency is another cause of unexpected hair loss. Iron deficiency can lead to less oxygen to reach your tissues and gradually the roots of your hair will be deprived of oxygen, making the roots brittle. You can identify the symptoms that whether you are iron deficient or not. The major symptom is heavy periods. If you bleed too much then you tend to go weak and weakness in the body leads to a weaker immune system which directly affects the roots. Eating iron-rich food can compensate for your iron deficiency.
This disease occurs when your immune system accidentally attacks your hair follicles. In Alopecia hair starts to fall in large quantities creating one or multiple bald patches. In some cases, hair starts thinning from roots and then fall out leaving a beard like stubble patch. Sometimes the hair grows back and they are of the same color but tremendous hair loss can lead to complete baldness. Permanent baldness is suffered by people who have a family history of Alopecia.
Hair defines and enhances the beauty of a woman. They come in a variety of styles and lengths and texture. Every woman is determined to maintain a healthy and clean mane and to do this here are a few tips to keep your tresses healthy, shiny, and bouncy in the autumn season.
Lock the Moisture
Cold weather snatches away the moisture and leads to a dry and itchy scalp. Visit a salon and get a nice hair moisture treatment done. Add conditioner and a weekly hair mask to your hair wash ritual. Do not forget the serum after hair wash and avoid blow-drying until needed. Lock the moisture by using a leave-in conditioner.
Autumn season brings back dry and itchy scalp which leads to excessive dandruff. Dandruff leads to oily and sebum filled scalp making you scratch your head often. This is one of the many reasons for unexpected hair loss. Usually, anti-dandruff shampoos make your scalp parched so the use of conditioner is strongly advised.
Say No to Split Ends
If you style your hair too much and blow dry too often then you are bound to have split ends. Split ends are cured by nothing except cutting them. Get regular trims in every six to eight weeks. But you can prevent split ends from causing them by using less heat.
Cold weather demands hot oil massages and nothing can replace that heavenly feeling. Add a few drops of essential oil and do not massage your head in a rough manner. Massage in circular motions and keep the oil in the roots. Oil revives hair cuticle from brittle and dull looking hair. You can also mix a few drops of essential oil in your shampoo and then wash your hair with them.
Clarify That Scalp
Step in the new season with a clean scalp. Summer can lead to a lot of scalp build-up of dirt, dry shampoo, and sand. A clarifying shampoo will clean the build-up and will detox the scalp.
