- It is also important to reduce stress, use specific products and avoid drying
"In the eggplant season, women lose their hair." This well-known popular saying goes to say what we all already know: in September, hair loss in September worsens , especially in women. In principle, there is no need to be alarmed. People have about 100,000 hairs on their heads and the normal thing is to lose 100 to 125 hairs a day. After the year between 30,000 and 40,000 hairs disappear, which represents around 30-40% of the scalp, although it is renewed at the same rate. The problem comes when, at certain times, the replacement is slower than the fall and some problems may arise, such as recesses or greater visibility of the scalp, as well as a loss of thickness.
But, what is it due to ? When do you have to be alarmed and go to the specialist? There are several factors that favor it and, although it may seem a lie, the abuse of the sun and the chlorine of the pool are not the only triggers. We explain why and how to improve this problem.
Why does the hair fall out more?
According to experts, there are five factors responsible for such a marked loss of hair in women at this time. In the first place, there is the deprivation or fall of estrogens in women since this has different hormonal rhythms from those of men, whose androgens (male hormone) are released homogeneously throughout the year, while in women they fall after the end of summer. On the other hand, it is proven that in September stress tends to increase, which also causes the fall.
Third, ultraviolet radiation , which we are subjected to especially in summer, accelerates the hair loss phase. Likewise, hair has a life cycle of three years, divided into three phases: the growth phase, the resting phase and the fall phase. With the heat, this last phase is accelerated, whose results are accused in September. Finally, anemia, or very heavy menstrual bleeding, favors hair loss.
Despite being a natural process, there are certain tricks that can stop hair loss and make your hair look healthy and strong.
