Hair loss is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the body due to the natural cycle of hair growth. On average, a person loses between 50 to 100 hairs a day. However, if you are starting to notice large chunks of hair in your hairbrush or on your floor, you may be wondering if you are losing too much hair. If you’re concerned or confused about whether your hair shedding is normal or not, keep reading to find some answers.
Understanding the Total Hair Count
In general, human hair grows at a rate of 0.35 mm/day, and around 100 hairs are shed daily, according to research. Fortunately, since there are about 100,000 hair follicles, or more, on each person’s scalp, losing 100 hair strands doesn’t seem to make a big difference in appearance.
Every single hair on your head is at a different stage of its lifespan. Hair grows and dies in phases, which is known as the hair growth cycle. Exogen is known as the shedding phase and is when the hair strands are released from their follicles and fall out. During this phase, it is completely normal to see around 50 to 100 hairs falling out daily.
What Causes Hair to Fall Out
The reason your hair is falling out could be due to numerous factors. One of the most common causes of hair loss is stress. While daily hassles, such as traffic jams or being late for work can cause stress, it won’t result in your hair falling out the next day. Hair loss is related to prolonged stress that results in physiological changes.
