How Much Hair Loss Is Normal?

January 15, 2014

Posted in Ask Frank, Male Hair Loss, Male Pattern Baldness, Thinning Hair, Women's Hair Loss


It’s a common question that I hear a lot.

It can be scary noticing excess hair on your hairbrush or around your drain. While the sight of hair not attached to your head may be frightening, there’s no need to worry just yet. That’s because everyone loses hair. In fact, it’s completely normal to lose about 50-100 hairs every day. Shedding is just a natural part of your hair’s growth cycle. However, if you are noticing bald patches or excessive thinning, you may be experiencing hair loss.

Millions of people experience hair loss. There are many reasons for hair loss ranging from medications to genetics. By the age of 25, 25% of men have lost some of their hair. This proportion rises to 50% by the age of 50. Women lose their hair as well. Roughly 30 million adult women in North America experience thinning hair and hair loss, and some 50% of all women by age 50 are affected.

No matter if you consider your hair loss normal or not, if it’s concerning to you, there are solutions to help you feel and look better. With the right steps, hair loss can even be prevented before it starts. Talking to a professional about your concerns is a great place to start.

Hi Anwesha, The stress from your job and irregular sleep could definitely be contributing to your hair loss. However, it could also be due to other reasons like aging and genetics. Your best bet is to visit a Hair Club Center for a free consultation so we can see your hair under a microscope. Good luck!
