Hi friends! I have a totally random thought. Has anyone noticed any connection with hair loss and seasons? I have a few patches right now and noticed that this is the 3rd fall in a row that this has happened. It seems that I only lose hair in the fall. Has anyone else noticed this? Am I crazy? :)

Well no your not crazy! It's acctually the same for me excpet I lost all of my hair already. Like I get little tiny hair on my head and a few pieces of eyebrow will slowy grow in the spring and summer (mostly summer.) But, in the fall and winter the little tiny pieces of hair will not my be on my head. My mom has noticed that in the sunlight I have little tiny pieces of hair but, in the winter the tiny pieces are gone. No more tiny pieces. So yeah I have noticed that but, I don't know why that happenes. Hope this helps a little! - Nicky

Yes, I've noted a seasonal rhythm to my alopecia. In the early days, my eyelashes would fall out during the spring (when my allergies would really start bothering me). I have AU now. I do get more of those weird little white hairs in the summer.

mine started right after the busy christmas rush...i am a hairdresser (HOW IRONIC) it started with a patch on one side.....by April a little fuzz regrew and i was okay. by the next year, the patch grew to patches. they regrew. after a few horrible shocks to my system (a fractured wrist followed by my ex-husbands' death) and it was like watching a train wreck. i have a full blown case of AU. noticed a few eyelashes this spring, and a hair on my chin....and 3 eyebrows. i feel like a sad plucked chicken. wigs have saved my life as i dont know what i would have ever done without. good luck and God bless.

I have noticed this for years. It's like flowers blooming and the grass growing in the spring. When winter comes around my hair hit like the trees. Although it is a little growth and usually has no pigment it is nice to see.

Doesn't sound that weird to me. I believe that it could be linked to low Vitamin D levels (like SADs disease). My vitamin D was a 12 when all of my hair fell out. I've been taking Vitamin D (5000 ius) and a folic acid and I've seen some regrowth after having full AU for two years (with no regrowth). Anyway, hope that helps!
