Autumn fatigue is caused by the sudden change from summer to fall and the sudden cooler weather, which leads to loss of appetite, fatigue, and discomfort. The fall fatigue also affects hair, causing problems such as “dryness,” “thinning and thinning,” and “increased hair loss.
We asked professional hair stylists what the most effective measures to take against fall fatigue are.
Use no-rinse treatments
While regular rinse-off treatments only repair damage, non-wash-off treatments can be expected to repair damage and protect hair from heat from the hair dryer and ultraviolet rays, and are recommended for those who want to improve dryness as soon as possible. The treatment penetrates the hair overnight, leaving it moist and shiny the next day. (Tokyo/Ikejiri-ohashi stylist)
Switch to a shampoo with high moisturizing power.
Many shampoos on the market have high detergency, which removes even the oil necessary for the hair and scalp. This can cause hair damage. Shampoos with high moisturizing power do not have to worry about removing the necessary oil as mentioned above. (Tokyo/Soshigaya-Okura stylist)
Measures to “lose weight and become thinner” ed.
・Aim to eat a well-balanced diet and lead a regular life.
Hair is considered to be thinning as a danger signal of poor nutritional status. Lack of sleep, stress, and an unbalanced diet can cause it to become thinner, so it is a good idea to try to eat a well-balanced diet and lead a regular life. (Kyoto/Mabori, stylist owner)
Head spas and massages to remove dirt and promote blood circulation.
It is likely that your hair is becoming thinner due to the effects of sweat and sebum dirt clogging your pores. First, thoroughly clean out the pores with a head spa. Then, improve blood circulation with a scalp massage. (Osaka/Shoji, stylist)
Hair Loss Prevention
Use an amino acid shampoo.
Amino acid shampoos have gentle cleansing power and are most suitable for conditioning the scalp. First, prepare the environment of the scalp before the hair. (Tokyo/Omotesando stylist)
Review your diet.
Zinc is one of the nutrients necessary for hair production. Large amounts of dietary fiber and food additives in instant foods inhibit the absorption of zinc, so it is advisable to first try to reduce their intake. Furthermore, it is recommended to effectively consume zinc-rich foods such as oysters, liver, and cheese. (Tokyo/Daikanyama, stylist)
