The times when I've lost the most amount of hair is when I've been in a humid environment. When I was in Malaysia last year, I lost more hair in 3 weeks than I did over one year back home. Has anyone else experienced greater hairloss in humid weather?

I have lived in Northeast America my whole life (I'm 38). As you probably know, that part of the US can be very humid in summer. I have not noticed any correlation between hairloss and higher humidty levels.

My haircutter claims that dry winter air will cause more hair loss
than any other time during the year. This is true for me.
Also, the dry winter air is rough on skin (dryness)
and does lower the lungs resistance to viral infections.

Have you tried a "whole house" humidifier, from Aprilaire? I live in the far Northeast, and our winters are very long and cold. I too used to get dry skin and nose etc and installed one in my home. It works great and has eliminated these symptoms for me in the winter.

Bap, thanks for the idea. I have tried a room humidifer but it created
a dust bowl in my bedroom, (even with distilled water).
