According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people lose 50 to 100 strands of hair daily. On days that hair is washed, that number increases to 250 strands.
You may think that hair loss is more common in men than women. Men tend to start losing hair in their 30s and 40s, whereas thinning in women’s hair begins in their 40s and 50s... but can actually occur as early as their 20s.
However, the reasons why women lose their hair are different from men. Stress, heredity, thyroid disorder, autoimmune diseases and menopause are just some reasons you might be losing your hair.
If you’re noticing significant hair loss and shedding, it is very important to see a dermatologist to help find the reason you’re losing your hair.
