Seasonal Hair Shedding

With fall approaching, you may start to notice an increase in hair shedding. Is this normal, or a sign that points to bigger problems?

As the summer comes to an end and the fall months fast approach, so, too, does seasonal hair shedding. Seeing more hairs than normal on your hairbrush, on the bathroom floor or in the shower can leave the average man or woman in a bit of a panic. Is this kind of hair loss normal? Should you be concerned?

We shed an average of 80 to 100 hairs every day. This is considered normal, healthy hair shedding. These hairs that are shed are not lost. Instead, they are going through a cycle of growth, transition and then rest, when hairs release and are shed, before the process repeats. During certain times of the year, you may notice an increase in shedding, especially in the late fall months. This common phenomenon is known as seasonal shedding.

The exact cause of seasonal shedding is unclear, but studies show that seasonal loss affects more women than men and occurs most often during the fall months, like September and October, and sometimes in the spring, April and May.

If you have been properly maintaining your hair and scalp, seasonal shedding is normally not a cause for concern. With time, shedding should stabilize back to normal daily levels and normal hair growth will continue. However, if you have not been correctly caring for your hair and scalp’s specific needs, you could be experiencing symptoms similar to seasonal shedding which can lead to long-term hair loss.

Seasonal Shedding or Something More?

When the body consistently sheds significantly more than 80 to 100 hairs daily, a person has excessive hair shedding, which can be caused by a number of factors. These factors include increased or constant levels of stress, medications you may be taking, internal factors like hormones (menopause and pregnancy), and thyroid function or improperly caring for your hair and scalp. In some cases, hair can recover and return to its normal growth cycle. In other cases, hair can begin to diffuse, growing in thinner, or become dormant. Excessive hair shedding itself can be very stressful, and while it usually is temporary, if not properly detected and treated, can create a perpetual cycle of hair loss.

Prevent With Scalpcheck

Instead of trying to self-diagnose whether your hair shedding is seasonal or something more, Jeffrey Paul’s team of trichologists can help you discover the health of your hair and scalp with their exclusive ScalpCheck. This in-depth analysis begins by looking at your current hair care and styling routine, as well as key contributing factors like diet, lifestyle, certain medications and heredity. Next, using proprietary TricoTest software, along with non-invasive, non-surgical medical appliances and three different camera magnifications, they identify the scalp’s levels of oil, hydration and pH, which all play an important role in the health of the hair and scalp and hair shedding. Once your ScalpCheck is complete, a customized treatment plan is created based on what’s best for your specific hair and scalp condition.

Not Just for Seasonal Shedding

ScalpCheck is not only designed to detect hair shedding problems like seasonal shedding. It is also ideal for anyone suffering from dandruff, excessive scalp itch, oily hair, and those who are looking to prevent an issue before it occurs.

Hair shedding is coming. Now is a perfect time to schedule a ScalpCheck to discover the health of your hair and scalp, and be sure seasonal shedding isn’t masking a longer-term hair loss problem.

3D Printing Helping With Hair Loss

Recently, WKYC ran a special report by Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins, on how 3D printing is changing the game for people who suffer from hair loss.

Monica had the unique opportunity to meet Patty, who 12 years ago was injured in a farming accident causing her scalp to be ripped off from the back of her neck, all the way forward to her eyelids. The violent force of the accident took most of her ears as well.

Prevention Goes Beyond JUST the Skin and Body

Often overlooked is the health of our hair and scalp, until something is wrong and symptoms like flaking, itch, excessive hair shedding or hair loss show up.

Eating healthy, exercising and decreasing stress are all steps many of us take to live a longer, healthier life. As a society, we understand the importance of preventative care when it comes to taking care of our bodies. Sometimes conditions that are diagnosed early can be easier to treat.

Is Shampooing Causing Hair Loss?

How often should you wash your hair? Will washing your hair every day make it fall out? Is shampooing less best? What shampoo should you use: clarifying, “low-poo” or “no-poo”? You are not the only one who has asked these questions.

We dig in to help separate the myths from the truth to set the record straight, while also helping you truly discover the health of your hair and scalp.

Will Hereditary Hair Loss Affect You?


Hair loss or thinning caused by genetics is referred to as androgenetic alopecia, or, more commonly, hereditary hair loss.

Unfortunately, medical science has yet to discover a cure for hereditary hair loss. Thanks to advancements in science and medical research, however, we have a better understanding of how heredity affects hair thinning and hair loss and what we can do to prevent its onset.

In this episode of Hair Loss Solutions TV™, you will discover the following:

  • What Trichotillomania is
  • The different stages of hair pulling severity
  • The research behind this common disorder

If you’ve ever felt like pulling your hair out, you are not alone. While this is a common figurative phrase, pulling your hair in a literal sense is very real, and it’s a common disorder that many people may not even realize exists.

What is Trichotillomania?

Trichotillomania, a neurobiological and behavior disorder known as “Hair Pulling Disorder,” is the repetitive pulling out of one’s hair. According to the TLC Foundation, “Trichotillomania is one of a group of behaviors known as Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs), self-grooming behaviors in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body.” Trichotillomania affects about 1 in 25 people, and the best way to manage this disorder is to educate yourself. While many who experience these urges feel shame and embarrassment, it is essential to spread the message that they are not alone, and there is help out there.

In the video above, Clinical Psychologist Dr. Renae Reinardy discusses this common disorder, the variations of severity and the options for people suffering from this problem that are available.

If you or someone you know has hair loss due to the pulling urges, contact us at Jeffrey Paul’s Hair and Scalp Specialists. We can help assess the problem and provide guidance as to your next steps.
