    Default Signs your hair loss isnt normal and how you can stop it

    According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, shedding 50-100 strands is perfectly normal and you dont need to go for any treatment for that.

    A hair grows in three phases including growth phase (Anagen), resting phase (Catagen) and Shedding phase (Telogen). Initially, a hair remains in the anagen phase for about 2-5 years before going into resting and shedding phase. During the resting period, the blood supply to the hair follicles becomes limited which as a result makes the hair delicate. In the Telogen phase, the hair is completely disconnected from the hair follicle and sheds off, where it is replaced by new hair from the same hair follicle.

    Since the old hair is replaced by a newer one, the overall density of the hair is not disturbed in this case.

    I am totally agreed with you that losing up to 100 strands a day is quite normal & no one needs to worry about the issue up to this limit. When Shedding phase (Telogen) arrives, most of the people get confuse whether they should visit a doctor or not. They start trying different products to stop their hair loss. They select products like shampoo, oils by taking reference from commercial advertisements which claims to stop hair loss. So it is must to stay calm when hairs start shedding & know whther it is normal & under limit. If the hair loss is more than 100 strands a day then you should comsider visiting a doctor.
