Hair loss/hair fall is something that everyone has to experience at some point of time in life.
To some extent hair, fall is normal. when I say normal
Then this may too vary from person to person.we usually lose approx 5 percent of hair in a day. People having very high natural density tend to lose more than compared to people who have low natural density. Similarly, there is a difference between hair fall if we compare genders females have more hair on their scalp compared to men. So females have more hair loss as compared to males at any given time.
Hair has to go through a complete cycle of growth, hair fall, the resting phase, and then there is regrowth from the same follicle or hair root.
If this cycle of hair growth continues at a steady pace, things remain fine. If somehow there is a decrease in the blood supply of the scalp or there is some nutritional weakness, the growth cycle gets disturbed and every new hair coming out from the root is weaker than compared to the earlier one.
Everyone has their own normal pace of hair fall.for some this maybe around 10 hair strands per day. For others, this may be around 20 or more. Hair fall, we notice around 19 to 20 hrs of age is a baseline hair fall anything above this must be considered abnormal.
Old school thinking of 100 hair strand loss a day is absolutely not to be followed.
Any increase in your hair fall is to be taken seriously and the right diagnosis is a must to find the right solution.
In earlier days not many options were available. The only medicines we had at our disposal were minoxidil and finasteride.
