Is this you every spring season? Seasonal hair loss can put anyone into a state of anxiety. Although a natural response to season change, it is a more common condition than you might think.
It is normal to lose about 50-100 hair follicles on a regular basis. When adding in the extra exposure to sunlight after a long winter, hair may begin to shed in larger amounts. A typical strand of hair has a life cycle of between 24 and 72 months (2 and 6 years) during which time it will grow normally. However around 10 per cent of a person’s hair may be in a “resting” phase (known as telogen), at which point the hair can fall out.
Treatments for Seasonal Hair Loss:
For most people, seasonal hair loss may be a bit worrying, but it doesn’t really do any harm. If you have another hair loss condition, however, it can make your normally thin hair seem to disappear at times. The good news is that, in many people, this is treatable.
Because a drop in melatonin levels can be triggered by sunlight anywhere on your skin, simply covering your hair won’t help. What has been shown to help is using a melatonin supplement. Melatonin can be taken orally, in pills, or can be injected into the scalp by a doctor. It’s important to talk to your doctor before you take melatonin as it can have unpleasant side effects in some people with other medical conditions.
