Why Is My Hair Shedding More?

Have you all noticed any changes in your hair recently? It seems to be more dry, dull, and shedding more excessively than usual? I know I have and let me inform you on who is not a fan, ME! Due to the fact Curly Hair is already more vulnerable than most hair texture and takes more effort to take care of, this is the last thing you want to deal with.

To put it plain and simple, during the Summer, there's moisture and heat in the air causing our blood vessels to expand and allow more blood flow at the scalp. During the Winter, the air is cooler and dryer which causes our hair to be dryer and blood vessels to be more closed. There's no heat in the air which slows down blood circulation to your scalp and in return, your hair sheds and breaks. However, there are ways to slow down the shedding and breakage.

Yes, REALLY! Below are a list of ways to SAVE those follicles you've worked so hard to maintain and take care of...


1) Exercise

-Exercising increases blood flow to the scalp producing oxygen and nutrients that are beneficial for hair growth.


2) Cool Water on the scalp

-Cool water on the scalp closes pores making it difficult for your follicles to shed easily.


3) Diet

-Diets rich in biotin and Omega 3 Fatty Acids increase blood circulation at the scalp.


4) Scalp Massages

-Scalp Massages provide oxygen and nutrients to your scalp or hair follicles which stimulates blood flow.


5) Onion Juice

-Onion Juice contains an antioxidant known as flavonoid which helps produce blood flow to the scalp. Be careful with this one, because it definitely can leave a lingering odor. You can follow up with a gentle shampoo afterwards.
