Autumn puts a strain on our hair. Every year, punctually this season, we find ourselves losing a lot of hair, even those who have it the most resistant. Many resort to natural remedies and products to strengthen them and do not always get the desired effect. Usually up to 30% more hair is lost until the end of November compared to the rest of the year. 

But have you ever wondered why this physiological phenomenon occurs right in period of chestnuts? There is a scientific reason behind the annoying hair loss.

Someone generically attributes the cause to the change in season and the lowering of temperatures. But the explanation is different: in reality the cause of hair loss is the decrease in the hours of light during the day. This affects the production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and our well-being. Additionally, melatonin regulates the growth of certain skin and hair cells. 

But that's not the only reason we lose so much hair in the chestnut season. Another aspect to consider is it STRESS. After the summer, we return to more intense work rhythms, while the younger ones return to school and university. And the impact can be really heavy. 

Natural remedies for hair loss 

To counteract the annoying problem of hair loss, you can use some natural remedies. First of all, it is essential to fill up with vitamin Vitamin C: , which is found in many raw and different vegetables B vitamins including Vitamin B3, B5, Biotin, Vitamin B9 and B12.
