Seasonal hair loss: the triggering causes
During the change of seasons, both in spring and autumn, it is easy to notice more abundant hair loss than usual. It is a natural physiological phenomenon which takes the name of "seasonal effluvium" and which, generally, resolves itself after a few weeks. But why does this happen?
As we explained in this other article, the causes behind seasonal hair loss can be traced back to a mix of combined factors. The first is to be found in our ancestors, the mammals. From them, in fact, we have inherited the hair molt process, which involves the replacement of the hair twice a year. Another factor at play is the possible hormonal change caused by the change in the light and dark cycle that occurs with the advent of the new season: a hormonal imbalance can cause greater hair loss. Finally, not to be underestimated is the role of the climate, which can lead to an increase in damage to the hair bulb causing an early fall.
Do you have to worry?
As we have anticipated, seasonal hair loss is nothing more than a natural biological phenomenon, capable of resolving itself after a couple of weeks, when the new season is already well advanced. In fact, it is the hair in the telogen phase, which has reached the final phase of its life cycle, that falls out. It is precisely this characteristic that makes the difference between seasonal effluvium and more serious ailments, such as androgenetic alopecia.
Although seasonal hair loss in itself shouldn’t cause excessive concern, it is good not to underestimate the phenomenon, especially if the hair loss is particularly abundant and does not tend to resolve after a few weeks. In this case, it could be a different form of effluvium, such as acute or chronic telogen effluvium. In that case, we always recommend that you consult your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
Seasonal hair loss: effective remedies and advice
While hair loss during seasonal changes is a natural process in itself, it doesn't mean that we can't do anything to reduce hair loss and stimulate hair growth. Among the valuable tips to limit seasonal hair loss, there is undoubtedly the choice of a healthy and balanced diet: vitamins and minerals are the essential nourishment for healthy hair.
On the other hand, opting for specific and quality hair products really makes a difference when it comes to hair health. In fact, although there are hundreds of products on the market for your hair, not all of them act in the same way. The best products, for effectiveness and efficiency, use specific active ingredients in their formulation that have been scientifically proven to have anti-fall and stimulating properties. In this regard, the best known are:
- Triaminodil, the active ingredient with a molecular structure similar to the well-known anti-baldness drug Minoxidil;
- Copper peptides, known for their strong regenerative action on hair follicles;
- Azelaic Acid, capable of promoting cell regeneration and the balance of the epidermis;
- Caffeine, with proven invigorating and stimulating properties.
Aware of the incredible stimulating and anti-fall properties of these active ingredients and natural extracts, the Kmax team of experts has created a line of ad hoc products: the Stimulating line. The latter, in fact, was specifically designed to counteract hair loss and, at the same time, speed up its regrowth.
So, let's take action! What to do to stimulate hair growth and combat seasonal hair loss? Here is the perfect stimulating routine that uses the active ingredients listed above to limit the damage of seasonal hair loss and rediscover the beauty of healthy hair.
1. Stimulating hair care routine: proper cleansing
When it comes to hair loss, there is no delicate moment like that of cleansing. How many times, after the shower, you happened to brush (or comb) your hair and find yourself with whole strands stuck in the brush? Surely seasonal changes and seasonal hair loss can play their part. However, choosing a detergent that is too aggressive or not suited to your needs can make the problem worse.
For this, the first step to a haircare routine that can stimulate hair growth involves the use of Kmax Stimulating Shampoo.

At the base of its stimulating action, there is a formulation enriched with the best stimulating and anti-hair loss active ingredients, such as Triaminodil, azelaic acid, beta sitosterol, vitamin B6, peppermint and caffeine.

Now that the hair is clean, the ideal routine to strengthen the hair and stimulate their growth provides a specific treatment for the scalp. In fact, in order for the hair to grow back properly it is essential that the scalp is properly hydrated and in a state of optimal health.

Moreover, for an intensified action, it is good to apply it daily, massage it gently in the affected areas and wait at least 6-8 hours before making a shampoo again. Does not require rinsing.
