When the seasons change, do you notice that you’re losing more hair?
I think that humans shed just like all other animals do, and animals shed when there’s a season change. You know, it’s when your dog blows his coat to grow in a thicker, winter coat.
Although my research isn’t a formal scientist study, I have discovered that most people lose handfuls of hair before a season change – male, female, child, and dog.
Even though this seems like a very disturbing event for most, here are some suggestions to avoid panic:
- Don’t focus as much on the hair coming out as noticing the new growth, coming in;
- Get a hair cut (not a trim, but a quality cut);
- Brush your hair more often to stimulate the scalp and open spaces for new hair growth;
- Use a shampoo with as few chemicals as possible;
- Take a tablespoon of cold-pressed oil (olive oil, coconut oil, or hemp oil) at least 4 times a week to keep your scalp hydrated;
- If you are really worried, get a hair analysis to make sure something more isn’t impacting your skin and scalp health;
- Take the appropriate supplements that encourage healthy hair, skin, and nails, like pure silica.
Try not to panic, unless you are losing clumps of hair and no new growth is there to replace it.
Remember that hair health is rooted (sorry for the pun) to good nutrition, and if heavy metals are present, or if you are depleted in the nutrients needed to produce healthy hair follicles, focus on your diet, research the products that you use on your hair and scalp, and determine if you are exposed to a toxin impacting your hair, skin, and nails.
Otherwise, you and Fido are simply growing a new winter coat. Don’t panic too much.
Do your research first, take the pup to the groomer, and go get a fancy new haircut.
