Hair shedding is a part of normal life. Hair loss is totally normal.
On an average, we lose around 80 strands a day. If you loose more than that, or if it is not growing back, then you have a problem. There are a number of reasons why it happens. It’s tricky to pinpoint any one and thus we can’t get a remedy to the situation.
Hair loss is a very common problem for women – much more so than people realise. “Research shows that at least 1 in 3 women will suffer from hair loss or reduced hair volume at some point in their lifetime”. So if you are losing strands, it’s important not to freak out, your mane will recover. In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know…
Hair loss doesn’t happen fast, our strands grow in cycles, which means, it can take up to 3 months for hair to fall out after a trigger has caused it. “If you notice excessive daily hair shedding for longer than 3 months, see a trichologist or your GP, there could be an underlying factor that needs to be addressed” a hair specilist advises. Very importantly, try not to panic. Telogen effluvium (excessive shedding) is almost always self-eliminating and hair will start to grow back as usual once any internal imbalance is put right”.
