Even if we enjoy the cool and chilly winter, we can’t ignore the set of hair & skin problems it brings. Hair loss is one of the worst nightmares most people experience during the chilly winter. While it is typical to lose 100 strands every day, you should become alarmed if you lose more than that. Nobody enjoys seeing hair clumps in the drain. But what brings on periodic hair loss? Let’s discuss it!

Does Hair Fall out in Winter?

Simply put, problems with your hair and scalp occur during the winter because the dry outside air absorbs all the moisture from your scalp. The dry surroundings cause your scalp to dry out, which leads to dandruff and makes your scalp itchy and odorous. An increase in dandruff can also exacerbate hair loss. According to science, weak hydrogen bonding cause dry hair, breakage, and split ends into your hair strands. So, yes, hair fall in winter does happen.

What Causes Excessive Hair Fall in Winter?

It’s not surprising that you’re shedding more hair in the shower as winter approaches. The hair loss you’re likely to experience throughout the winter is cyclical, just like the health of your skin, which is dependent on the changing seasons. Winter hair loss is primarily brought on by the dry outside air, dehydrating your scalp by sucking out all of its moisture. Dry hair and a dry scalp can cause breakage, thinning, and hair loss. Dandruff, which causes your head to itch and feel unwell, is another consequence of a dry scalp. In the winter, this can significantly increase hair loss and dry air. This time of year challenges everyone, even those with the healthiest hair.

How to Control Hair Fall During Winter

Time Frame of Hair Regrowth

Here are some suggestions to help you if you want to avoid or lessen the consequences of seasonal hair loss.

  • Regular Haircuts
  • Experts advise routine trims every 4 to 8 weeks to keep your hair in good condition. In addition to reducing hair loss, it will assist in removing split ends and avoiding hair damage. Additionally, it will promote hair growth.

  • Massage with Hot Oil
  • A nice scalp massage is the best for your hair in the winter. It improves blood flow to the scalp, strengthening hair follicles from the inside out.

    Oil massages are a wonderful method to give your hair and scalp the necessary vitamins to fend off the winter winds and relax. To get deep down to the hair roots, gently massage the scalp with a warm 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil or almond oil. You can even apply the oil to the length of your hair for deep conditioning. It’s crucial to regularly massage oil through your hair to keep it strong and shiny, increase blood flow, and nourish the hair cuticles. Watch vitamin B levels since vitamin B12 encourages strong, healthy hair development. Apply oil to your scalp and mix in some camphor to eliminate dandruff. Camphor functions as an antibacterial, reducing dryness of the scalp and avoiding itching.

  • Steam
  • The hair follicles open up after regular steaming, allowing for more nutrient absorption. Both your scalp and hair will be strengthened and moisturized as a result. Your hair will become smooth and lustrous, and it will promote good hair health.

  • Flashpoints
  • If your hair thins out extremely, you can give Flashpoints by AHS a try. These are the most sophisticated hair extension treatments by AHS that will act as a one-time hair problem solution to your months-long hair problems. The procedure takes only a few hours and adds all the life back that is lost from your hair, making it appear voluminous and healthy.

  • Let your Hair Air Dry.
  • Avoid blow-drying your hair and let it dry naturally. Your hair will crack and lose all moisture if you blow dry it. However, it would help if you refrained from leaving the house with wet hair because the chilly air will dry it out and make it break more easily.

  • Don’t take Hot Showers.
  • Too much time spent washing your hair with hot water can cause irreparable hair damage by making it dry and frizzy. Therefore, a hot shower is acceptable, but just for ten minutes.

  • Deep conditioning
  • Conditioning is essential to restore the moisture in your scalp and stop seasonal hair loss. It will aid in preserving hair texture during the winter and assist you in fending off the negative impacts of heating appliances and chilly winds. You may make your conditioner at home using some simple kitchen components.

  • Eat Well and Drink Plenty of Water.
  • Hair loss can be caused by unhealthy diets combined with a diet deficient in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients necessary for healthy hair. Vitamin B contributes to maintaining the hair’s health, while vitamins A and E stimulate healthy sebum production in the scalp and promote blood flow to the hair follicles. A poor diet and nutritional deficits restrict your body’s capacity to generate new hair follicles. Ensure you eat enough protein and vegetables as needed throughout the colder months. Lean meats, curd, fish, soy, and other foods high in protein encourage hair regrowth while reducing hair loss.

    Keep your hair well hydrated by drinking lots of water. It will nurture shiny, vibrant hair and prevent split ends and brittle hair. In addition, water is the magical ingredient that every one of us needs to stay internally hydrated during this dry winter.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
