Summertime joys include lawn suits, picnics, kulfis, mangoes, and ice cream, but there are also some undesirable ones, particularly if you live in a city: foul garbage, stifling heat, and constant perspiration (especially from those who don’t use deodorant!). You may now add hair loss to this list for yourself.
As the temperature rises, hair loss may start. Five credible studies conducted between 1991 and 2014 revealed that people shed more hair in the summer. To better come up with a solution, let’s first understand the cycle of hairfall.
Phases of Hairfall:
The growth and loss of your luscious locks are controlled by three key periods of the typical hair cycle. Anagen, or growth, comes first, then Catagen, or transition, and last Telogen, or resting. Unless there is an illness, each hair strand naturally sheds from the follicle at a distinct period after 4 to 6 weeks of the resting phase, resulting in a natural loss of 50 to 150 hairs per day.
Each strand can develop up to a centimetre per month during the Anagen phase and can stay in this growth stage for three to five years. This growth rate is mostly governed by genetics. Your hair is growing slowly but steadily during this ideal period of the anagen phase.
Tips to prevent hairloss:
- Protect your hair from damage by minimizing the use of heat treatments like straightening, and avoiding tight hairstyles that pull on your hair. Use heat protection sprays and serums to shield your hair from damage, and be gentle when towel drying and shampooing.
- Use hair treatments to stimulate growth. Try natural remedies like Diluted Rosemary oil, which can be warmed and massaged into your scalp to nourish and stimulate follicles. Leave it in for an hour before washing it out with lukewarm water.
- Wear protective gear like hats or use protective hair products to shield your hair from the sun, sea, and pollution.
- Maintain a healthy, balanced diet to keep your hair nourished and hydrated. Drink plenty of water to keep your hair hydrated and minimize the risk of dehydration, which can lead to dry, brittle hair. Remember, healthy hair starts from the inside out.
Simply unwind, adhere to these suggestions, and maintain your composure to achieve thicker, healthier hair than ever before with no hair loss!
