If you think you are experiencing seasonal hair loss, you’re not alone. Many people have wondered how the climate can impact their hair growth and loss, and fortunately scientists have studied this phenomenon.

Your hair follows a cyclical pattern that is individual to you, but goes through three main phases: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. During Anagen, hair grows consistently for about 3-5 years, and then enters Catagen phase which is a transitional period of about ten days. The final “resting” phase is Telogen when hair eventually falls out. Hair normally falls out at a rate of about 80 hairs per day.

In order to find out whether these phases follow the seasons, Swedish scientists tracked the hair cycles of 823 women over the course of a year. What they found was that hair entered into the Telogen phase least during the winter months. In fact, Telogen occurred mostly in the summer, which means your hair is actually least likely to thin during winter months.

However, it is possible that you’re noticing more hair loss this winter for a variety of reasons, ranging from stress to genes or chemical treatments that are damaging your hair. If you’re noticing thinning hair or hair loss, the Keranique Hair Regrowth System has been trusted by thousands of women to help them regrow their hair and regain their confidence.

    I have not started using the Hair Regrowth Treatment – the description mentioned in the box was “do not use if you have a patchy hair loss as keranique may not work”. For your info, I have patchy hair loss, it is actually thinning all over. Can I return it & exchange it instead for the serum? Thank you.
