“How much hair loss/ shedding is normal?”

First published

Hair Strands are made up from a protein called Keratin that is produced by hair follicles. Hair follicles are usually situated 3-5mm below the outer layer of the scalp, there produce strings of keratin cells which we know as hair strands, as new keratin strands are formed the older ones get pushed out through the scalp as hairs. The typical hair strand will grow at the rate of about 6 inches per year. The average adult heads around 100,00-150,000 hairs and the average person will typically shed 100 hairs a day.

In patients who are using certain medicines to combat hair loss the shedding process may be accelerated; this is a normal process in which weak follicles are shed to make way for newer stronger healthier hair.

Golden Nugget: If you are not using treatments for hairloss and you experience greater loss of hair than usual such as more hair fall while showering or brushing hair then you may want to take a consultation to Stop and prevent further hair loss. The sooner you start the more you save.
