In the blog de Hospital Capilar We tell you everything you need to know about hair loss in spring, as well as some tips for taking care of your hair in spring and reducing the possible impact on your hair of the change of season.

Why does hair fall out more in spring?

With the entry of the spring season we can perceive an increase in hair loss. This is due to what is known as spring asthenia.

Spring brings with it certain changes such as increased daylight hours, temperature changes and the arrival of allergies. This causes spring asthenia in more than half of the population, an adaptive disorder to these changes that produces physical and psychological alterations such as headaches, lack of sleep, stress and anxiety, or lack of sexual appetite.

When the rhythms of our organism change with the arrival of spring, what is known as telogen effluvium. The life cycle of the hair is accelerated induced by this spring asthenia, causing the hair follicles to enter their telogen phase and the hair falls out more than usual. According to our medical equipment, this telogen effluvium can last up to 4 months, and is also known as seasonal hair loss.

In addition, during the spring we spend more time outdoors in such a way that the hair is more exposed to external agents. This together with stress, anxiety and changes in rhythm with the arrival of this season make hair fall more intensely.

Eat a balanced diet

Food is key to looking healthy hair. A poor diet leads to hair loss, so it is essential to follow a varied diet where we incorporate vitamins, minerals and proteins. If there is a nutritional deficit, the hair follicles lack the necessary nutrients and become weak.

Adapted hair treatments
