Regularly at this time every year, most women have to face the constant loss of hair, especially those with long hair. So this season-transition time to autumn is also jokingly called “the hair fall season”.
Why have the “hair fall season”?
Normally, the fall and winter period is the time when hair falls a lot. The reason is that this season’s weather is dry, thus the scalp is dry as well, making the hair roots weak, fragile, and very easy to break and even shed a lot.
Besides, the temperature changes when we go from the house to the outside, and vice versa also affects the health of the hair. It causes hair to dry out and break more easily.
Another reason also contributes to more hair loss in the autumn and winter season is that at this time, the temperature is low and cold, so we also … lazy to wash our hair and care for the scalp. This also causes hair loss to increase.
