How to Prevent Hair Loss in the Winter Season?

  • 4 min. read

One of most common problems faced by people in winter is excessive hair fall. Seasonal hair fall is common among many people, although for some it may be more than normal. During the winter months, the dry air sucks up moisture from the hair shafts, making them dry and brittle.

This makes them vulnerable to hair loss. Unlike summer months, when the hair does not lose its natural moisture, hair in winter becomes dry and vulnerable, therefore becoming prone to damage.

But you need not worry. Here, we shall take a close look at the causes of hair loss in winter and the treatments for hair loss that are available.

What Is the Cause of Losing Hair?

Hair loss is a common phenomenon during winter months. In fact, it is natural for people to lose about 100 strands of hair daily. However, in an average human being that hair is restored naturally.

Some people though may lose a greater amount of hair and over time this can lead to the appearance of bald spots. Here are the main reasons as to why hair sheds, especially in winter months:

  • Dryness:

    Dryness is perhaps the main reason why hair falls in the winter months. Our hair follicles generate natural sebum that moisturizes hair strands naturally. However, dryness in the atmosphere during winter can dry up the sebum in our hair, making it brittle and susceptible to fall. Winter hair care, therefore, needs special attention to counter the dryness.

  • Environmental Pollution:

    We all know that in winters the level of pollution increases. This is because pollutants in the air get trapped. Therefore, those of us who are always on the go may find their hair to be more prone to hair damage in winter months. The pollutants stick to the hair strands, making them vulnerable to hair fall.

  • Diet:

    Eating junk and oily food is another enemy of hair and skin. There is a natural tendency for us to eat junk food during the cold winters. Excessive consumption of junk food can lead to nutritional deficiencies that can lead to hair loss.

Ways to Deal with Hair Loss in The Winter

  • Warm oil massages:

    Since dryness is a major cause behind hair damage in winters, warm oil massages, especially with coconut oil can help. Incorporate coconut oil in your winter hair care routine and see the difference yourself. The hair oil will seep into the hair follicles and make the hair strong and robust.

  • Right vitamins:

    Nutritional deficiency is another factor responsible for problems like thinning hair and hair damage. Take supplements of vitamins B, C, D and E. These vitamins can be obtained either via food or through supplements. They are filled with antioxidants and other nutritional properties that help in making your hair stronger and healthier even during the winter months.

  • Winter hair care:

    Apart from regular brushing and shampooing of hair, there are certain other things that must be incorporated in the hair care routine to reduce hair fall in the winter months. These include going for a hair spa, using a hair mask and deep conditioning.

Which Oil Is Best for Hair Fall in Winter?

Oils have fatty acids in them, which make them perfect for hair growth and glowing skin. Here are some good oils that you can use to reduce hair fall during the winters:

Coconut Oil:

This oil is filled with nutrients that penetrate deep into hair shafts and make them moisturized. For those who are suffering from thinning hair and hair loss in winter, can try out hair massages with warm coconut oil.

Olive Oil:

Olive Oil moisturizes your hair and reduces hair thinning and hair fall in winter. Just heat up a cup of olive oil and massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for 30 minutes and then wash it off normally with water.

Castor Oil:

All treatments for hair loss in winter months cannot do without castor oil. Made from castor beans, this oil prevents hair loss in winter. Massage your scalp and hair with warm castor oil in winters and reduce hair fall drastically by its regular use.

Almond Oil:

Almond oil is typically used for both body massage and hair treatments. Dense in nutrients and vitamins, cold-pressed sweet almond oil should be incorporated in your winter hair care routine to reduce hair fall significantly.

What are the Treatments for Hair Loss?

There are several credible treatments for hair loss that can also promote hair growth. Such hair treatments are good throughout the year, although they are particularly beneficial in the winter months.

Since there are various reasons for hair loss, accordingly there are many different hair loss treatments available. This is the reason why a consultation with a hair expert is important in order to diagnose the actual problem and the stage of hair loss.

Once this is ascertained, the specialist can recommend the most effective hair loss treatment specifically suiting one’s expectations and personality.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
