Seasonal Hair Loss - It's a thing!

If you are starting to notice more hair in your brush than normal right now, don't panic. As it happens, seasonal hair loss is actually normal in the Summer and late Autumn, so although you might be finding it unsettling to see right now, some extra shredding in the months leading up to winter is no cause for panic.


We can normally expect to lose anywhere from 50 - 100 strands of hair per day but it is also proven that people do shed more at certain times of the year and several studies have suggested that hair grows thicker in the spring and starts to thin late summer while being at its peak in Autumn.


So why does your hair shred so much in Autumn?

Throughout the year, hairs exist in various stages simultaneously and when it comes to Autumn a large portion of hair enters the shredding phase.
