It could happen when taking your bath in the early morning shower; it could be when you are brushing your hair just having a normal blow-out.

It would shock you to realise that humans lose hair daily in large quantity. “On average, we lose fifty to a hundred hairs a day“, says Francesca Fusco, MD, a New York City dermatologist who specializes in hair loss. “That’s just hair going through its cycles, and there will be a new one to replace it“.

The reason why this isn’t noticed by some people is simply because even a 100 hair loss per day is too insignificant to cause thinning of the crown hair, but for others, this doesn’t happen.

When the hair ought to undergo a cycle of growth, it potential fails to occur for several reasons.
