Seasonal hair loss is a myth... that's why we get so many questions about hair loss all year round.
Around here we're obsessed with everything and we have a few 'foolproof tricks' that will help you manage, prevent and treat all kinds of hair and scalp conditions.
But why does hair fall out more with the arrival of fall?
Hair loss usually happens 4 to 6 months after a stressful event or illness. If we reflect on events from previous months we can quickly find a "reason".
During the summer our greatest ally is the hair sunscreenWe advise you not to leave home without it, especially if you are going to spend the day outdoors and with the sun in the mix. This product is essential in controlling hydration and loss due to excessive sun exposure.
*Tip* just spray it in the palm of your hand, "warm" the protector with both hands and pass it especially on the lower parts of the hair (more on the tips).
Returning to "autumnal hair loss", it is believed that the body is responding to hormonal changes. With the stress of back to realitywith fewer hours to rest, our circadian rhythms change and, consequently, so does our hormone production.
Temperature changes alter the natural moisture in your hair and you may have already overexposed your hair during the summer. Good hydration is synonymous with elasticity and strength. Ideally, you should apply on the ends a mask on the hair while you sleep. The longer, the more the nutrients in the mask penetrate the hair cuticles - that's why it's so important that the ingredients are 100% natural. Remove excess grease with a deep wash with shampoo e conditioner.
*hint* when washing your hair use the mask on the ends and shampoo on the rest of the hair, so it cleanses and moisturizes more deeply. Always rinse your hair with warm water, avoid hot water as it damages and weakens the hair.
Massage the scalp
It's like preparing the "soil" to place seeds and then just wait for them to grow strong. Without a healthy scalp, hair cannot thrive. Hair massage stimulates blood circulation, strengthens the roots and increases the absorption of nutrients.through the hair follicles.
How do you work the soil? Always with dry hair, apply a few drops of serum in hands or directly at the root of the hair, and massage with the jade comb. This comb is specially designed to stimulate circulation, help the follicle receive the botanical actives that will nourish it and stimulate its growth. It also helps to fill out the hair shaft and add volume and strength to the hair. Perform this massage in circular motions, a little all over the head especially in the areas that you feel are most weakened.
Another way to "prepare the soil" that works very well for those who have a lot of fall and are getting areas with less density is the dermaroller. This "tool" increases blood circulation in the scalp, stimulating the transport of nutrients and oxygen, thus stimulating hair growth and giving it more volume, structure and thickness. It alsoincreases collagen production and stimulates cell renewal.
*Tip* you should always use this tool with very clean hair, preferably after shampooing. Rinse and proceed with the massage. Pass the dermaroller through the scalp, read on. here the step by step. Followed by a few drops of the super hair serum, this process will help the nutrients in the serum to penetrate the scalp more effectively in order to spice up the root for stronger and healthier hair.
Avoid combing wet hair
Wet hair is more elastic and, with the force of brushing, can pull or break strands. Ideally, brush dry hair before shampooing.. And during washing, do not tangle it again. Wash your scalp with circular motions and gently squeeze the strands between your hands. This way, you'll leave the shower with your hair combed and ready to dry.
Washing your hair well is also an art.
In the world of trichology (scalp and hair treatment) there are those who advise washing your hair almost every day, because there are studies that show that in 5 weeks those who wash more often (in the right way) have less hair loss. But what is the right way? The right way is to remember to wash with shampoo the nape of the neck and the area behind the ears, try massaging to activate circulation. Apply conditioner only to the ends, do not apply it to the scalp. For drier hair, use the mask as conditioner. Try to wash your hair with warmer / cooler water as hot water damages hair health.
Eat real food
Good nutrients = good hair. It's important to maintain a good intake of healthy fats, micronutrients and vitamins. Avocado, nuts, legumes, oily fish, chia seeds for Omega-3s, dark green veggies, citrus fruits and kiwis (Vitamin C!), eggs, sweet potatoes, and seaweed (for a good source of iodine) - stock your pantry and fridge with them all!
Around here we advise you to prevent and take the powdered mix SUPER HAIRthis mixture consists of vegetable proteins and medicinal plants that help bring the nutrients you need (from the inside out) to have not only strong and shiny hair but also a healthy body. When you eat poorly, which nowadays is easy to happen, either due to lack of time or access to really nutritious and organic ingredients, your hair (and teeth) are the first to suffer the consequences as the body goes into lockdown mode and stops sending nutrients to places it thinks are unnecessary, the first being the hair.
By taking 1 to 2 dessertspoons daily of this you'll get everything you need to start your day (a good dose of plant protein, essential oils and botanical actives that will nourish your system but especially your hair - skin and nails). It has here adelicious recipe to help you get started on this journey.
Various stages of our lives may require extra help, be it postpartum, menopause, stressful phases, etc.... One natural supplementwhich can regulate the production of cortisol (the stress hormone), support hormone production and provide a boost of hair-specific vitamins and nutrients, can make all the difference to the appearance of our hair, controlling hair loss and encouraging the growth of new strands.

Avoid pinning your hair up and blow-drying it
Above all, avoid ponytails that are too tight. They create tension in the hair and make it break more easily.
Excessive use of hair dryers and straightening irons makes hair dry and brittle, so whenever you have to use these tools protect your hair withthis protector. It works as a heat protectant, protecting the hair with its natural bamboo-based silicone. And it makes the hair fuller and more manageable.
When possible dry your hair on the least hot option for 50% and the rest leave to dry naturallyin the open air.
Avoid chemical dyes
If you dye your hair and have not yet surrendered to the Hennamaybe you should give it a try. The hair dyes are full of chemical compounds that penetrate the hair scalp. They also make hair drier, brittle and fragile. If you opt for a natural hair dye, you'll not only be giving your hair a new color, but nourishing it with each coat. You can follow the step-by-step process in this video.
Manage your emotions and rest!
The usual old advice that works for so many problems in our lives. High stress levels and poor sleep are the enemies of good skin and hair. For a more restful and regenerating sleep try our drops.
Be patient and consistent
Hair grows approximately one centimeter per month. And it has natural cycles of growth, rest and fall. We can't change this mechanics, nor can our genetics or age, which also influence it. But we can, be patient and consistent with our hair care routines, and our daily habits.
