It’s almost that time of year, the leaves will be falling from the trees, our animals will be shedding their summer coat and our hair will be falling from our heads.  Wait, what?

Yes, between the end of August to November, around the time our house pets begin to shed their summer coat, we tend to shed more strands of hair; courtesy of climate change.

Every day you lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair, depending on the person.

Before you start counting down the days till December, check out these statistics.  According to Dr. Jerome Litt, on average blondes have about 120-thousand strands of hair, brunettes have approximately 100-thousand strands of hair, while red heads have about 80-thousand strands of hair.

Most people who notice seasonal shedding say it’s more annoying than anything.  Experts say there’s not much you can do about it, except style your hairdo differently and they urge people not to stress about the issue; no one will go bald because of seasonal shedding.
