Hair loss is a common issue for men and women alike. For most people, it occurs at a steady rate, but for some, the months of October and November bring about more hair loss. This condition is called seasonal hair loss, and to many it is a baffling mystery. If you think you may be experiencing this issue, read on to learn more.
What is seasonal hair loss?
When men and women experience a greater amount of hair loss at a certain time of year, they are dealing with seasonal hair loss. Factors like an increase in hormones over the summer months or more exposure to sunlight are some of the main reasons. The effects of these factors do not surface until a few months later, causing an increased loss of hair.
"Seasonal hair loss is a normal condition."
Is it normal?
In short, yes. Seasonal hair loss is not a sign of a larger underlying problem. It is simply your body's way of adjusting to the chemical and environmental changes you experienced in the summer months. Your hair growth pattern should return to normal, but if it does not, you should consult a hair loss specialist.
