Unlocking Insights: A 12-Year Study on Seasonal Hair Loss Patterns at Zurko CTC

The hair care market is poised for a 6% growth over the next 5 years, driving a heightened focus on the development of safer and more effective products, particularly those targeting hair shedding. Influenced by factors like hormones, medication, diet, stress, and seasonality, the hair growth cycle, with an average daily hair loss of around 100 strands, is sensitive to disruptions, leading to effluvium and potential permanent hair loss.

At Zurko CTC, we conducted a comprehensive 12-year study investigating hair loss, density, and their correlation with a key modulating factor—seasonality. Spanning from 2011 to 2023 and involving 1,013 adult subjects experiencing hair loss, our research employed meticulous combing tests and hair density evaluations using epiluminescence microscopy (TrichoScan).

Statistical analysis revealed a significant upswing in telogen hairs during peak periods of August and September, showcasing distinct annual periodicity patterns. A secondary, less pronounced peak occurred in spring, while lower telogen rates were noted in late winter.

Recent study results hinted at a potential link between climate change and increased hair loss, notably peaking during the pandemic.

In conclusion, our detailed methodology and robust statistical analyses provide a solid foundation for a deeper understanding of annual rhythms influencing human hair growth. This paves the way for future research and therapeutic interventions, emphasizing the relevance of circannual rhythms in the adaptive or evolutionary history of the scalp and hair. Recommendations for future studies advocate placebo-controlled trials with targeted recruitment based on hair biology.
