New Year, New Hair Loss Solutions

The holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year… according to songs, movies, and ads that pop up right after Halloween. But for many of us– try as we might– the holidays are a time of stress, worry, and anxiety.

We try to soldier on. We attend community festivities, we shop ‘til we drop, we bake up a storm… whatever it takes to achieve the “perfect holiday season” for our loved ones.

Unfortunately, this means that come New Year’s, we’re… just exhausted.

Depressed.

Wondering “Why do I do this to myself every year?”

Well, I’ve got good news and bad news. Let’s rip off the band-aid and start with the bad: Putting on a happy face for the holiday season could have made your hair loss even worse.

Holiday Magic Is Not So Magical

If you’re like most people, this isn’t your first year attempting to “fake it ‘til you make it” through the holidays. You may even have your loved ones convinced by that brave face you wear all season.

You can’t fool your own body, though.

You see, everything your body goes through is reflected in your hair… including stress. On average, you should lose 100-125 hairs per day. This is your body’s natural growth cycle: it sheds old, weak, damaged hairs to pave the way for new, strong, fresh hairs.

But once holiday stress kicks in, you find yourself losing significantly more. Have you noticed a large increase in loose hairs when you comb your hair, take off a hat, or even just scratch your head?

If so, you could be falling victim to telogen effluvium (excessive hair loss due to stress). In some cases, hair gets itself back on track 3-6 months after the stressful event.

But in many cases, holiday stress is a bell you just can’t un-ring. You may find yourself getting ready for spring, packing away the scarves and beanies, when you suddenly realize… you can see your scalp through your now-thin hair.

Finally, the good news: when it comes to hair loss solutions, the sooner you act, the more effective your chosen solution will be.
