From finding more hair on our brushes, to experiencing increased shedding in the shower, many often find springtime to be a particularly bad period for hair loss.

According to Consultant Trichologist and Hair Gain Ambassador Samantha Stewart MIT, hair loss during spring is a fairly common occurrence. However, it is one that Samantha clarifies is “part of the natural growth cycle”.

Although the cause of this spring shedding remains unknown, Samantha suggests that it “is thought to be linked to a natural response to the changing seasons.” Fluctuations in temperature and climate prompt the body’s evolutionary mechanisms, leading to increased hair loss. This is often termed as seasonal effluvium.

Samantha reassures us that such shedding ” is usually temporary and not a cause for concern.” Nevertheless, she recommends seeking advice from a Trichologist if the increased hair loss persists, as there may be underlying issues that need attention.

Top Tips to Managing Spring Hair Shed

Below are some of Samantha’s top tips for treating, preventing, and safeguarding your strands this spring.

  1. Keep hair well-hydrated and moisturised.

As well as improving its overall appearance, hydrated and moisturised hair is key to reducing the risk of damage and breakage. According to Samantha, we should “choose products that not only protect the hair strands but also help to support healthy hair growth such as Hair Gain’s Hair Mask (£32).”

The brand’s signature ingredient AnaGain™, a phytonutrient derived from organic pea shoots, constitutes The Hair Mask. This helps to stimulate the follicles, reactivate hair growth, and restore vitality to the hair. The intensely hydrating and nourishing formula gains further strength from Natural Betaine and Phytantriol. Additionally, clinical trials have proven that it repairs the hair and reduces hair fall and breakage by 60% from the first use.

  1. Make sure your diet is balanced and rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins.

 Absolutely essential to healthy hair and hair growth! The successful regeneration of the hair shaft and a reduction in hair shed require ingesting vitamins and minerals. By both stimulating blood flow to the scalp and improving protein structure, a nutrient-rich diet is a crucial part of any hair care routine.

  1. Incorporate scientifically formulated supplements into your diet.

A simple and easy way to enhance hair health, Samantha recommends the daily consumption of Hair Gain’s Hair Capsules (£36.99). She states that “this will help to decrease the hair shedding and restore the hair’s growth cycle back to normal.” Designed to feed follicles at their source, the Hair Capsules have also been scientifically formulated from the combination of AnaGain™ and essential vitamins and minerals such as Biotin, Selenium and Zinc. Supporting healthy hair from within, they deliver visibly fuller and thicker hair in just 3 months of use.

  1. Avoid excessive heat and chemicals.

A widely acknowledged piece of hair care advice. The overuse of heat and chemical treatments can lead to the depletion of natural oils and moisture from the hair. This results in brittle strands that are prone to breakage. Products preserving hydration or add moisture to the hair, such as heat protectant sprays or Hair Gain’s Hair Mask (£32), can help significantly reduce hair damage and loss.
