5 Ways to Prevent Hair Shedding During Fall

by Chantal McCulligh (blogger)

 If you’re wondering why your hair is starting to look like a wild animal, it’s because it is. Okay, maybe not quite but when the fall season hits, your hair naturally begins to shed and thin out in an effort to spark new natural regrowth. Yup, this is similar to what animals do in the wild. So, if you’re tired of waking up with what-looks-like an animal on your head, it’s time to take some preventative measures to avoid hair shedding during fall.


Massage Your Scalp to Stimulate Oils

Oh, there’s nothing like a good head massage. Not only does it feel great but it can also stimulate your scalp to release sebaceous oil glands while also increasing blood circulation. So, take a trip to the spa or a masseuse, ask your partner for a nightly head massage or pick up one of those scalp massagers and massage your scalp daily to avoid shedding.


Treat Your Tresses to Deep Conditioning Each Week

When your hair starts thinning out, it’s a good indicator that it needs some love. Each day, your hair is subjected to all kinds of elements that are damaging – from heat products to pollution, chemicals, toxins – you name it. So, it’s imperative to treat yourself to a deep conditioning regime each week. This will infuse your hair with all the hair ingredients it needs to remain moisturized and healthy so that it stops shedding excessively.

Give Olaplex hair moisturizing regime a try! The Olaplex products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, nut-free and just as beneficial as they are healthy.   


It’s Time for a Trim

We understand how absurd it may sound to trim your hair when you’re worried about hair loss already. However, doing just that can be exceptionally beneficial to thinning hair as it encourages your hair’s natural regrowth. As a bonus, you’ll be able to cut loose the dry, damaged ends that are sucking the life out of your hair.  

It’s recommended to trim your hair every 8-weeks to not only remove damaged ends but to also reinvigorate your hair and to trigger it to start growing some more.


Change Your Habits

We are all culprits of doing things that encourage hair shedding. So, when you start to see excessive hair loss, one of the first things to do is look at your daily habits. Everything from a lack of nutrients to sudden weight loss, medications, over styling, and hair pulling can cause your tresses to shed way more than you want them to.

Take a look at your diet along with your diet, and see if there are any changes you can make to avoid hair shedding. Avoid pulling your hair or consider changing medications if one of the side effects is thinning hair. Limit your usage of hair irons and curlers and let your hair air dry more often. Get sufficient amounts of Vitamin C, iron and Zinc in your diet and simply try to heat more natural products such as organic fruits and vegetables.


Take Care of Your Self-Care

Run a warm bath, add some Epson salts, turn on some relaxing music and soak in the serenity of a stress-free moment. Go for a walk, take some deep breaths, diffuse some essential oils, and enjoy a warm cup of herbal tea. Adding some ohm and zen into your life can be an amazing defense mechanism against hair shedding as stress has been linked to causing an increase in hair loss.
