8 ALLIES THAT STOP YOUR HAIR FALL IN AUTUMN
In autumn, hair loss becomes a concern for fear of being caused by androgenetic alopecia but, as confirmed by Medical Hair, has nothing to do with hair loss related to hormonal or hereditary factors . “The true cause of hair fall in autumn is that during this time of year a new phase of the cycle of hair growth begins and it is now when the hair that is in the anagen phase, or growth, go to the telogen phase or of fall, “they explain.
“Seasonal hair loss, called acute telogen effluvium, is not related to androgenetic alopecia that is produced by an increase in the sensitivity of hair follicle receptors to the male hormone,” says the medical director of Medical Hair, Dr. Horacio Foglia.
” Hair loss in autumn is not worrisome but it is fundamental to diagnose a specialist to see if the amount lost is normal or, on the contrary, is excessive,” he adds.
