Hair Thinning and Hair Loss Prevention
Hair thinning is a condition that usually is progressive. In addition to stress, hormonal changes, heredity and medication, the use of some hair care and styling products can contribute to hair thinning and hair loss in the long term. A hair will normally go through 20 to 25 hair growth cycles during its life span, each cycle lasting between 3 to 6 years. If the funnel where the hair grows is clogged with residues caused by the use of unhealthy hair products, the hair has no space to grow and will gradually get thinner. This thinning process can eventually lead to permanent hair loss. Taking preventive measures as soon as possible is essential to counteract hair thinning and hair loss. A consultation with a trichology specialist will help identify the specific causes and provide the appropriate in-salon treatment and at-home care.

Several factors explain the changes in women’s hair during pregnancy and postpartum period. Hormonal changes, vitamin deficiency and stress can contribute to postpartum hair thinning and hair loss. In addition, by the 6th month of pregnancy, the foetus creates its own hair system and absorbs a large part of the mother’s amino acids, a key player in hair growth. This is why most women will experience visible hair loss a few months after delivery. This condition is usually temporary and hair will grow back to its initial density, but for some women, this hair loss will become permanent.
Periods of seasonal shedding: Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) Skin and hair cells renew themselves on a regular basis. During the normal process, strands will fall and regrow at a rate of several dozens per day. Natural hair loss tends to intensify during the spring and fall season. Hair loss is more important and may even seem abnormal during these periods. Without adequate care, the scalp that accumulated residue retains strands that have already separated from the root, affecting the birth and growth of new hair. Seasonal hair loss shouldn’t last more than three months, beyond this period, a trichology specialist should be consulted to make sure another cause is not to blame.
