Hair with good volume and shine is commonly considered healthy. So, when we wake up in the morning and see a lot of hair strands on the pillow, we wonder whether it is normal hair loss or something that needs medical attention.


That’s why Lordhair – a global hair system brand – decided to share a quick knowledge resource to answer the most common questions on normal and abnormal hair loss. Read on to discover answers to related hair damage and recovery questions as well!


How much hair loss is normal in a day?


According to dermatologists, it’s normal to lose 50-100 hair strands per day. Since there are approximately 100,000 hair strands on a healthy person's scalp, losing up to 100 strands per day doesn’t make much difference. New hair replaces the fallen hair soon and the circle goes on.


Additionally, people with longer hair strands notice hair shedding more often as compared to people with shorter hair.

How much hair loss is not normal in a day?


If you are seeing fallen hair everywhere (on the sink, pillow, drain, floor, shoulder, and clothes), then, your hair loss is not normal. Theoretically, losing more than 100 hair strands every day signals aggressive shedding.

 

What is the life cycle of an average hair strand?


There are hundreds of thousands of hair follicles on our head and they are in different stages of the hair growth cycle. The phase in which a hair strand is growing is called the “anagen” phase, and 90 percent of the hair strands you have are currently in that phase. Then comes the catagen phase in which the hair stops growing. Only 1 to 2 percent of the hair is in this phase. The telogen phase is the last phase of the hair life cycle. In this phase, a hair strand will be at rest as it prepares to detach from your scalp.


What usually causes hair loss in men and women?


Excessive washing, wrong hair products, bleaching, aggressive brushing, medical conditions, and heat styling are the most common causes of hair loss. Some diseases also trigger reversible and irreversible hair loss.


What to do in case of sudden hair loss?


If you are experiencing sudden hair loss, it is best to visit a dermatologist or trichologist. Both are medical practitioners that specialize in problems of skin, hair, and nails. They have the know-how to provide the right diagnoses and treatments for hair thinning and loss.

Recover from hair loss with Lordhair


Hair is a sensitive part of the body that responds to even minor hormonal changes and dietary imbalances. Therefore, normal hair loss differs from person to person. However, in case of extreme thinning and damage, recovery is almost impossible with topical solutions and off-the-counter drugs.


For men with an advanced stage of hair loss, we suggest using a non-surgical hair replacement system for recovery. It will provide you with a head full of hair almost instantly and that too at an affordable price. Our range of hair systems for men and women is designed to be lightweight, comfortable, and natural-looking.
