Stages of Hair Growth
The anagen phase is the stage in which the hair grows. After this phase comes the catagen phase, also known as the transitional phase, and lastly, the telogen phase, in which the hair falls out. This is the natural growth cycle of our hair.
Why does hair fall out or weaken?
When the seasons change, it causes variations in blood flow that can affect the health of your hair, weakening the roots and thus calling it to fall out.
Increased blood flow accelerates the production of sebum in the sebaceous glands and its secretion into the hair follicles. Sebum (a natural layer of lipids) is necessary, but an excess amount in your hair is counterproductive since it can plug/suffocate the hair follicle, leading to growth impairment.
Another reason hair can weaken is nutritional deficiencies, also common at this time of year, such as a lack of vitamins or amino acids essential to hair growth and health. To prevent the changing seasons from affecting your hair, we recommend regularly giving it the nutrients it needs to keep it in the anagen, or growth, phase for as long as possible.
