How to prepare for seasonal hair loss
As autumn is approaching, you might not mind the heat subsiding. But we're sure there's one thing you're not looking forward to: seasonal hair loss.
As you probably already know, anti-age haircare is one of our specialities at Miriam Quevedo. Today we're sharing everything we learned from searching for the best formulas to prevent and reduce hair thinning to help you prepare for seasonal loss.
Some hair loss is normal throughout the year, but why would this accelerate in autumn? As it turns out, the heat of the summer and exposure to UV rays are the most likely suspects for seasonal hair loss. In the Southern Hemisphere, where the seasons are reversed, similar patterns emerge, confirming this theory.
Exposure to the elements causes some level of stress to the hair follicles, leading to more hairs entering the telogen phase. That is when the root shrinks and begins detaching from the follicle, ultimately falling.
How can the effects of seasonal hair loss be prevented?
Our advice is to prepare for seasonal hair loss throughout summer. Limit direct exposure and use UV protection for your hair as you do for your skin - whether through products, by wearing a hat, or sitting under a sun umbrella at the beach.
Achieving beautiful hair that stays anchored to your scalp is also highly dependant on how you nourish your body. Make the most of the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetable in summer. A healthy diet coupled with taking some time to destress will help you assimilate vitamins and minerals that keep the hair's lifecycle, running smoothly.
Once you've covered the basics, you should also consider some targeted topical treatments to address seasonal hair loss quite literally at the root. Lucky for you, we've got the perfect products!
Keeping seasonal hair loss to a minimum is possible, when you ensure your scalp is balanced and your follicles are nourished. Our anti hair loss products and rituals are formulated to achieve exactly that.
To take it one step forward, they also include potent hair growth stimulants. They ensure that fallen hairs are replaced quickly and you can keep enjoying full and lustrous strands.
The Black Baccara Routine - Stimulating growth with added repairing benefits
Our Black Baccara haircare collection ticks all the boxes when it comes to minimizing the effects or seasonal hair loss and supporting growth. The Black Baccara Rose Youth Concentrate and Fresh Rose Stem Cells keep the hair growth biological clock running optimally. Meanwhile, cutting edge Hair Growth Factors act at the heart of the hair follicle to stimulate hair growth.
Start the routine by applying the Pre-Treatment Exfoliator. Once a week, before bedtime, dispense 1/3 of the vial over the entire scalp on dry or damp hair. Let it act through the night to eliminate toxins, impurities and dead skin cells and deliver potent hair growth stimulants to your roots.
In the morning, wash your hair using the Black Baccara Hair Multiplying Shampoo. In addition to helping regulate hair growth cycles, it's fortified with our Multi-Bond Strengthener. It repairs and creates new bonds, reversing hair fibre damage.
Throughout the rest of the week, apply the Hair Multiplying Scalp Concentrate to continuously deliver nourishment to the follicles, while also detoxifying the scalp and restoring its natural balance.
The Extreme Caviar Routine - A potent hair loss shock-treatment
For the Exteme Caviar collection, Miriam applied the same sophisticated technologies used in skincare to reverse the signs of aging. Its key ingredient, Caviar, is a real treasure trove! It's rich in essential amino acids, structuring peptides, proteins, essential fatty acids, and trace elements. Together with a Multi-vitamin 8 Complex, these act deep into the follicles to strengthen and nourish the hair at the root.
Start by detoxing the scalp and preparing it for subsequent treatments using the Extreme Caviar Exfoliating Scrub Scalp Mask. Then super-charge your hair's defences against loss with the Bio-Regenerative Shock Treatment for Hair Loss.
This treatment is potent enough to prevent fall and restore growth for those dealing with androgenetic alopecia. It's formulated with high concentrations of ingredients scientifically proven to stop and revert hair loss, like Cegaba. Our Vital Hair and Scalp Complex reduces oxidation that can lead to premature hair loss. Ingredients that stimulate blood circulation (like L-Arginine) ensure optimal delivery of the active ingredients.
For best results, we recommend following a three months treatment with the Bio-Regenerative Shock Treatment for Hair Loss. Use it at least 2 nights each week, letting it act while you sleep.
In the morning, complete the routine by washing your hair with the Extreme Caviar Special Hair Loss Shampoo. It contains a DHT inhibitor to further treat your follicles and prevent premature fall. It also infuses your hair with keratin and collagen peptides that hydrate and strengthen it from root to tip.
When it comes to hair loss, seasonal or otherwise, prevention is key. So we hope our tips have motivated you to start taking steps to ensure your mane is full and strong come autumn!
