The Science of Seasonal Hair Loss

The concept of seasonal hair loss isn't new. Studies have shown fluctuations in the number of hairs shed during different seasons. 

It is believed that many people experience increased hair shedding in the late fall and early winter, which is hypothesized to be related to the exposure to sunlight and hormonal changes that may occur as seasons change. However, more research is needed to definitively prove this link.

Factors Contributing to Seasonal Hair Loss

Lack of Sunlight

Vitamin D plays a significant role in stimulating new and old hair follicles. Lesser exposure to sunlight during fall and winter can lead to a vitamin D deficiency, causing increased hair loss.

Hormonal Changes

Hormones like melatonin and serotonin fluctuate with seasonal changes and can potentially impact the hair growth cycle.

Stress and Diet

Holiday seasons can be stressful and can lead to poor eating habits, which can further exacerbate hair loss.

Prevention and Treatment

Vitamin D Supplements

If you suspect a deficiency, consult your healthcare provider who may recommend Vitamin D supplements to counteract the effects of less sun exposure.
