Seasonal Male Hair Shedding


The seasons don’t just change the weather; they alter your appearance as well. We get a warm summer tan and dry skin in the winter. By fall, our hair is shedding more than we can handle. Seasonal hair shedding affects both men and women alike. However, many people don’t fully comprehend the relationship between the seasons and hair health.The Department of Dermatology at Johns Hopkins University of Medicine conducted a study that examined hair trichograms (50-100 hairs from various areas on the scalp studied under a microscope). The findings? Hair sheds more in summer and fall. Seasonal hair shedding happens like clockwork for many people, but are you one of them?

What causes men's hair to shed seasonally?

The timeline of seasonal hair loss aligns with the Hair Growth Cycle:

Anagen - 85% of hair is actively growing
Catagen - Hair begin to transition by detaching from the bulb and preparing to shed
Telogen - 15% of old hair is resting as new hairs start growing
Exogen - New hair expels old strands from the scalp, resulting in excessive hair shedding

Throughout the year, hairs exist in various stages simultaneously. During the fall, an influx of strands enter the Telogen phase, where new hairs start to grow. Fall commences the shedding phase. And that’s not the only battle your hair faces: cold, dry weather causes scalp dryness, itching, and irritation. Follicles become inflamed, and hair is prone to breakage and excessive shedding. Fortunately, seasonal hair shedding only lasts about 2-3 months, but it can be disruptive to your hair.

signs & symptoms of excessive male hair shedding

Clumps of hair accumulating in the shower? Is your comb a jumble of hair? Many worry they are suffering from a hair loss condition when it could instead be seasonal hair shedding. The good news is that seasonal shedding is temporary. The hair growth cycle has a natural progression, and by mid-winter, early spring, a fresh crop of hair will replace what you lost.


Typically, people lose 50-150 strands every day. When hair sheds in excess, it is called Telogen Effluvium. Don’t be alarmed if there's an increase in hair loss during the fall and winter. With the right tools, styling tips, and products, you can minimize the appearance of seasonal hair shedding.


Think of seasonal hair loss as a chance to hit the reset button. As you lose old strands, new ones grow in and replace them. The best way to tackle seasonal hair loss is to keep your scalp in prime shape.

Here's what you can do:

Eat a well-balanced diet

Hair is made of keratin, a protein vital to growth. Meet your daily intake of protein levels, and don’t skimp on fruits, veggies and fatty acids— essential nutrients your follicles feed on, and hair cells need to divide and promote growth.

Avoid wearing beanies and hats regularly

Your hair is in a sensitive phase, and traction from headwear can tug and pull at the follicles and compound the shedding.

Try a deep conditioner

Bring moisture to your roots and follicles by applying a fool-proof deep conditioner once a week.

Get regular trims

Hit the barber regularly to keep hair short and easy to maintain. Plus, it’ll look sharp as opposed to longer styles, which can flatten during the colder months.

Take a Vitamin D supplement

We tend to coop up in our caves during the colder months, which can cause Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D regulates the production of keratin, so hop outside for a brisk walk or take a daily supplement.

Strengthen hair at the root

A new way for how to stop from shedding is use Daniel Alain's Anti Hair Shedding Treatment. INTACT, an Anti Hair Shedding Treatment, helps retain hair and minimize seasonal shedding by up to 77%.

As much as we’d like it to be, hair isn’t ironclad. Fortunately, seasonal hair shedding is temporary, and you are tough, which means Autumn can’t hold you back. In the meantime, grab cosmetic solutions you can depend on.

Love my Follea Rene - and the amazing customer service!

I considered purchasing a wig for years as my hair became increasingly thin. I finally decided the time was right and I’m so thankful to have found Follea. I purchased the Rene 12 inch in Caramel Latte and I absolutely love it – both the color and style are perfect. Stylist consultant, Tracy Romo, was so incredibly supportive and knowledgeable -- she walked me through every step of the process. She assisted with measurements and answered all of my questions via video calls. I can’t say enough about the amazing customer service I experienced from beginning to end. Tracy guided me in the right direction every step of the way, even sending me helpful videos and styling tips. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my experience.

Easy Beauty!

My Follea Style (6-11) is in all honesty the most comfortable wig I've ever worn - and I hate anything on my head! This wig just... goes where it's supposed to, no pulling it this way or that, no realizing your doggone wig is crooked.. AFTER you walk in to work. This success is in no small part to the Fit Kit I was sent to make sure of my size. 😊

Also, to say the hair is beautiful gives beauty a bad name. The hair is stunning. (I wear color Latte.) My consultant, Ashley, virtually took my hand to guide me through the process of buying my wig. Her help was and still is invaluable.

My hairdresser is very comfortable styling wigs. She created just the right "style" for my Style. That said, even straight from the box, Follea rocks!

Reading your Follea experience warms our hearts, our goal and mission is to help women all over the world feel beautiful, confident and like their best self. Ashley is an amazing and knowlegable guide, that will continue to be with you on your hair journey!

We invite you to join our @Follea community on Instagram, to learn best practices for your new Follea.

Thank you very much!

Wig #6

The ready to wear wig I received from Daniel Alain is beautiful. The packaging was so respectful of the wig. So impressed. I called with questions before purchasing and the staff was very kind and respectful as Loosing my hair was so unexpected and stressful. Thank you for wonderful customer service and a beautiful wig. So many compliments on how it makes me look. Thank you.

We are honored and so glad to hear you had a pleasant experience! Thank you or trusting us to help you during your hair-loss journey.

Thank you !

I had an amazing experience with purchasing a wig with Follea.
I can’t say enough about Tracy and the VIP service I got from her. She was always there on the other side of the phone , no matter what day or time and help me every step of the way!
I have never had such great customer service in any of the other leading wig companies I bought wigs from. Hands down the best!
Thank you

Thank you very much for sharing - it means the world to know that you had an exceptional experience with Tracy.

Tracy Romo is a life changer!

When you first go through your personal hair loss journey, you go through so many emotions and sometimes you get desperate. People like to take advantage of those searching for an answer. After making a very costly mistake, Tracy was a game changer for me! She was amazing, very knowledgeable and helped me understand what to look for, how to ensure I got the right size, face timed me to measure and ensure it was correct. I cannot say enough amazing things about Tracy, and my amazing Follea wig.

Kim, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience Daniel Alain. It warms our heart to hear to Tracy was such a positive impact. We would love to see your new hair debut, tag us on instagram @Follea.

Style 10 Inch Color 5005 Macchiato (comes with a soft rooting)

This is my first wig but not my first attempt with alternative hair. Its been a journey and one I knew I wanted to take with Follea. I was not wrong. The hair is silky soft and beautifully shiny. The staff is great and wonderful to work with. Their online consultation process is just what I needed. I received sample caps to try on to determine which size is the right size for me. I received color swatches as well to make the color selection process was a breeze. It does make a difference to see to the colors in person, dont be afraid to ask for color swatches. To see them against the light or while your home is worth it. All this happened after the online consultation, which was simple and fun. The rep provided samples of everything, explained the differences with each one. This helped me make a decision on what was right for me. Getting the samples of the wig caps and color swatches was a fun part of the experience but it also made me feel good about my decisions. I often worry about getting the wrong size and color. Once I was set ( and yes I changed my mind a bit) we went forward with the order. After I received my wig and cut the lace, the team was still there to help me with any questions I had.

Overall a great online purchasing experience. Once I received my Follea, I instantly knew this was it for me. I loved it and I was confident to wear it out.

Feeling Myself and Happy with a beautiful Follea Style, 10", Irish Cream

There are no words to fully express how grateful I am for finding Follea and meeting Janet. Her kindness combined with a professional, yet so gentle, advice helped me to find my beautiful natural looking European hair. Janet patiently showed me different styles and sizes (my head is so small!). She has never pushed me to anything. Only offered support and help on the way to my decision, and eventually ordered (incredibly urgently) the right size. I wish all patients to meet someone like Janet on their way! Before I found Follea, I faced a few horrible pushy people who wanted to make money of my sensitive, fragile situation of suddenly losing hair.
Today, I can face the Universe with a smile, again. I am back to work and normal life, interacting with people, attending important business meetings. Letting my health recover in calm confident state.
Thank You to Follea and Janet. May the Blessing and Kindness come back to You Multiplied Million Times.
I am already thinking of ordering a second Follea Style (bit longer this time). Every girl needs a special occasion HAIR! I have found mine.

Follea's Petite

Recently, I bought the Petite in Chai Latte blonde with a natural-looking darker root and customized my piece by adding a few wispy bangs. If you are like me and try to stretch the length of time between washes to prevent an itchy scalp and breakage, this little priceless gem is a quick four clips away from a good hair day.
