In some places, leaves will vibrantly change colors and fall off the trees during fall. For some people, the change of season can also trigger seasonal shedding, increased fall out, or temporary hair loss.
Interestingly, studies have shown it is more common for hair to fall out during the fall months than during other months of the year. While there are many different reasons for a person to experience hair loss, our team at Tampa Aesthetics and Weight Success Centers sees this seasonal transition into fall as a timely opportunity to explain solutions for hair thinning and options for hair restoration.
Simple Solutions for Temporary or Acute Hair Loss
It is possible that your hair loss is a temporary bodily change or perhaps due to an acute stressful situation, but you will want to complete medical tests and exams to verify you do not have any underlying issues or conditions associated with your hair thinning. Acute hair loss is much different than hair loss due to genetics, autoimmune diseases, or other medical conditions.
If it turns out you are experiencing a temporary hair loss or seasonal shedding, then you may consider choosing hair products with organic and nourishing ingredients such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, argon oil, olive oil, avocado, chamomile, and other plant-derived sources. Additionally, temporary fixes like hairpieces, extensions, wigs, or clip-ins could be an aesthetic solution.
Nutritionally, it is also vital to ensure your body is getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals to support healthy hair. For example, be sure to meet the recommended daily amounts of protein, iron, zinc, vitamins A and B, biotin (B7), and omega-3 fatty acids. Simply check ingredient labels to boost your intake of certain nutrients. You’ll find omega-3 in salmon and fish oils, and you can get biotin from egg yolks, nuts, avocados, and certain meats. A vitamin-rich diet full of fall veggies and leafy greens like spinach could also help keep your body, scalp, and hair healthier this season.
Professional Hair Treatments and Hair Restoration
For the treatment of hair loss, our experts and physicians would conduct medical tests and factor in different genetics, different bodies, and different lifestyles before prescribing a hair restoration strategy.
The latest options for treatments include everything from topical over-the-counter products, to tablets and nutritional supplements, to hormone balancing solutions, to non-invasive alternatives tailored for each person’s needs. A leading-edge, in-office technique with minimal downtime is PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma, which can trigger cells already present in the follicles to regenerate and produce healthy and strong hair. Another hair growth option is The LaserCap®, which is an FDA-cleared, prescription-only, photomedicine cap. Best of all, the cap is light, flexible, and easy to use at home.
As with any hair treatments, products, or supplements – results and benefits will vary depending on a person’s unique needs. Contact the Weight Success Centers in Tampa for testing to determine the best possible hair restoration solutions and products for your current needs.
