Why does hair fall out more in spring?

Spring brings with it many changes in the environment and, consequently, also in our hair.

  • Changes in daylight hours ⇾ Can affect our circadian rhythms , very important in hair growth.
  • Coming from winter where the hours and intensity of sunlight are scarce ⇾ Many people begin spring with a decrease in vitamin D values, the nutrient that makes hair growth possible.
  • Flowers and pollen are reborn with spring ⇾ Causing many people to experience allergies and skin symptoms that can cause inflammation of the scalp that facilitates hair loss.

All of these factors can promote spring hair loss, which is a type of seasonal telogen effluvium.

Telogen effluvium is characterized by an increase in the number of hairs that fall out . If normally we can lose around 100 hairs a day, with the effluvium we can reach 150-200.

Should I be worried?

The effluvia should not last more than 6-8 weeks , and, as a general rule, they should not leave areas of the scalp bare, as it is a diffuse fall. On the other hand, spring falls are physiological changes and, therefore, do not cause itching, pain or peeling of the scalp.

For all these reasons, if you notice that your hair loss does not fit the characteristics of telogen effluvium, it is best that you visit a professional to analyze your specific case and offer you the best solution .

¿Debo preocuparme por una mayor caída capilar?

La astenia y el resto de factores que suceden durante el cambio de estación, pueden favorecer la caída de pelo en primavera, que es un tipo de efluvio telógeno agudo ligado al cambio de estación.

El efluvio telógeno se caracteriza por un aumento del número de cabellos que caen (ya que una gran cantidad de pelos en fase de crecimiento (anágena) pasa rápidamente a fase de reposo/caída (telógena)). Si de forma normal se nos pueden caer alrededor de 100 cabellos al día, con el efluvio podemos alcanzar los 150-200.

La caída estacional no debe durar más de 6-8 semanas, y, por norma general, no deben dejar zonas del cuero cabelludo despobladas, pues se trata de una caída difusa. Por otro lado, la caída del cabello en primavera es una muda fisiológica y, por tanto, tampoco ocasiona picor, dolor o descamación del cuero cabelludo.

Por todo ello, si notas que tu caída capilar no encaja con las características del la caída estacional, lo mejor es que visites a un profesional para que analice tu caso concreto y te ofrezca la mejor solución.

vegan collagen
hair strengthening

Maintains the hair structure, guaranteeing strong hair and normal growth.

3/5
vegan collagen
hair strengthening

Olistic contains a mixture of amino acids of 100% vegetable origin that promote the formation of collagen, a fundamental protein to maintain the capillary structure and guarantee strong hair.

PRINCIPAL FUNCTION
Our body produces collagen naturally, but over time this production gradually decreases, causing weakening of the capillary structure and signs of aging on the skin. Collagen precursors prevent the levels of this protein from plummeting, favoring hair growth and the maintenance of skin and nails.

HOW WE GET IT
Unlike most collagen supplements that are derived from animal proteins, at Olistic we have developed a protein compound of vegetable origin through the fermentation of plants by the action of probiotic bacteria. In this way, it is totally suitable for vegans.
