Poll: Do You Shed More In December/January?

With my last wash day there was a pretty outlandish amount of hairs lost.  And I can’t help but feel like I’ve been down this road before.  At first I thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that (1) I flat ironed two of the last three wash days and then (2) waited two weeks to re-wash my hair after my last flat iron.  But as I’m perusing the internets and checking my local healthy hair blogspots, I’m feel like I’m noticing a lot of shedding talk these days.

Is this a known fact among hair goers that in December/January we shed more hair? Does “extreme” shedding come in cycles?  Or is this just a coincidence?

So I ask you:

Have you noticed that your hair has been shedding more than usual?

  1. My hair usually sheds more when it's close to being time for my touch up (within the last 2 weeks). The seasons don't really play a significant roll in my shedding.


  2. That's what I thought too until my last wash day. I was 1 or 2 weeks post relaxer and there was so much hair. It scared me a little.
