It has always been said that hair is the crown of our head. When hair starts to fall out for various reasons, we often feel like we are losing our crown, our confidence, our beauty. It is completely normal for us to lose 70 to 100 hairs every day, which we usually don't even notice. With excessive hair loss, up to 500 hairs can fall out a day, and this brings with it feelings of sadness, anger, despair and low self-esteem. Hair loss occurs for a variety of reasons, be it genetic, disease or stress, postpartum, medication, or menopause, but seasonal (autumn) hair loss is very common and expected every year.
Why do we face excessive hair loss in autumn?
Two possible reasons for fall hair loss are sun-related.
The first reason is that significantly less hair falls out in the summer, as we need it to protect the scalp from the sun's rays. This hair that doesn't fall out in the summer does fall out in the fall, so it seems like more hair falls out then.
Another possible reason is that our hair falls out in the fall because in the summer the hair follicles are more exposed to heat and harmful UV rays, which damage the hair follicles. A damaged hair follicle will go into a resting phase (telogen phase), which ends with the hair falling out, which we feel in autumn.
5 tips for more beautiful and healthy hair
Do not expose your scalp to sunlight in the summer
Now the birds on the branch are already chirping that the sun's rays are harmful to our skin and that excessive exposure to the sun is dangerous to our health. We recommend that you stay in the shade between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. When this is not possible, put on a cap that protects the hair follicles from UV rays.
Eat foods rich in protein
Did you know that hair consists of the protein keratin? If you don't eat enough protein, this deficiency can cause hair loss or make your hair look dull and lack luster. That's why protein-rich foods (Greek yogurt, skyr, lean meat, legumes, tofu, fish...) should be on your plate several times.
Don't forget vitamins and minerals
Certain vitamins and minerals can directly affect the beauty of your hair. We recommend that during periods of increased hair loss, you reach for the nutritional supplement Revalid hair capsules, which were designed by experts from Switzerland to nourish your hair from the inside.
Massaging the scalp for a few minutes every day can help improve blood circulation to the scalp, which leads to faster hair growth. During the massage, you can use Revalid hair growth serum to perfect your care. Taking the time to massage your scalp every day can also help relieve stress and tension, which is an added bonus if those emotions are the cause of your hair loss.
Shampoo is more important than you think
It is very important to choose a gentle shampoo that will suit your scalp type. If you want to grow hair and your scalp tends to fall out, choose Revalid Stimulating Shampoo. Revalid stimulating shampoo provides gentle cleansing and at the same time stimulates hair growth, moisturizing the scalp and strengthening the hair.
The good news is that the cells in the hair follicles divide very quickly, which means that the effects of following the advice against hair loss will be felt relatively quickly - within a few months. The key advice is to be patient and persistent while waiting for visible results. Believe me, it will pay off.
