Seasonal Hair Loss, seasonal molt

Link between seasonal hair loss and seasonal molt

The link that could be made between the fall seasonal hair shedding and seasonal hair fall is unrelated.

Human seasonal hair loss

During spring and summer, sunlight increases the secretion of hormones that control hair growth on the human scalp: accelerated growth during warm season and hair loss is more abundant after this period, for hair that reached the end of the hair cycle life.

Animals and seasonal molt

In many animal hairs. Molting is a natural process of elimination (fall) dead hair whose purpose is twofold - firstly allow a new coat to grow, secondly cope with seasonal temperature changes.

It is therefore inappropriate and wrong to speak of seasonal molt for the humans.
