Fall Hair Shedding

Filed under: Oil Blends For Beauty, Essential Oil Blends, Hair Care — Administrator @ 9:37 am

Stumble it!

Several people (and animals) shed during the spring and fall seasons. Whether this has to do with the change in the length of daylight exposure or temperature changes, no one really knows for sure what will trigger the loss of hair seasonally. Hormonal fluctuations may also cause this seasonal shedding.

Since losing your hair can be upsetting, if you realize that this might be a normal shed for you, you might be able to take some precautions to see if you can lessen the loss or delay the sudden loss of so much hair at one time.

It still is alarming when after months of little of no Hair Loss, all of a sudden you are finding more than normal amounts in the sink or shower after washing your hair. This is case for me, I have a normal loss of hair in the fall and in the spring, even after years of experiencing this I still get upset when it happens. It lasts about a month for me, then stops.

Anyway, there are a few things you might want to try.

Massage or stimulation of the scalp might be all you need to help you keep your locks. Do the massage prior to shampooing. If you don’t shampoo your hair everyday, then at least do a massage of your scalp daily. Not much, just use your finger tips and with gentle circles, massage your entire scalp. Better yet if you can get someone else to do it for you would be great. Scalp massage can be very relaxing.

Two Essential Oils that help to stimulate Hair Growth and my also retard Hair Loss includes Rosemary and Roman Chamomile .

Mixing a few drops of either one in your final hair rinse is all you need to do. About 5 drops of each in a quart of warm water. Wash your hair normally then, rinse, squeeze out the excess water, and then use your Essential Oil rinse, pouring slowly over your scalp. Do not rinse out, squeeze your hair of excess moisture. Dry and style your hair as usual

Rosemary does have a tendency to darken your hair. If you are a blond you might want to try the Roman Chamomile which can often times add a little bit of shine and bring out the golden hair colors.

Essential Oils that might help with Hair Loss besides Rosemary and Roman Chamomile include, Cedarwood , Clary Sage, Cypress, Lavender, Lemon, Juniper, Grapefruit, Palmarosa, Yarrow, Patchouli , Rose, Thyme, and Ylang Ylang . Mixing 3 or 4 of them with Jojoba and using as a pre shampoo massage or oil treatment may also help.

Chose 2 or 3 of the above listed Essential Oils, add 4 drops of each to 2 tablespoons of Jojoba, blend well. Then apply several drops to your scalp and massage in. Leave in so it can absorb into your scalp. 1 to 2 hours if possible, then shampoo as usual.

In place of the Jojoba you might want to try Avocado oil. In some instances this may be a better choice for those having a problem with Hair Loss. All by itself Avocado oil may reduce Hair Loss when used to massage the scalp.

There can be other reasons for Hair Loss. Please seek advice from a medical professional if you are not sure why you are having Hair Loss.

Nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, sudden and / or prolonged stress, medications, and the list goes on that can all cause Hair Loss.
