IS YOUR HAIR FALL NORMAL? EXPERTS TALK

Hair experts and experienced professionals say that a little hair fall is completely normal. However, if you are experiencing excessive hair fall it might be your transition towards hair loss, that’s more than average or in excess which is a sign that you need to take action to prevent the situation from worsening.

Experts say that an average person may lose around 50 to 100 strand of hair per day. Therefore, it’s normal to lose some hair, especially as you get older. However, you can also check the rate of your hair loss using different methods.

TWO COMMON WAYS AS SUGGESTED BY HAIR EXPERTS:

1. Comb Test:Comb from the back of the top of your head forward to the front of the scalp for one minute before you shampoo your hair. Do it over a white or light colored bed sheet, and then count the hair on the sheet.

Comb Test

Pull Test

2. Pull Test:Take about 60 hair between your fingers and pull a little bit as you run your fingers through your hair. It’s normal to see five to eight hair in your hand. If you have 15 to 20 hairs, though, you are losing much more hair than usual.


HOW MUCH HAIR LOSS IS NORMAL

According to experts, most people lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair per day. Even up to 150 strands per day is not considered a problem. Most people won’t even notice the number of hair they lose each day because it’s a process that happens over the course of time. But your hair loss is not reasonable if you are noticing hair more than that in your drain, or sink, or comb.

Experts say you can test the number of hair you lose by pulling a piece of hair containing about 60 hair away from your scalp and slowly running your hand down it. Normally, between 5 and 8 strands will come loose.
