Loss of hair

(Telogen Effluent)

Daily hair loss is normal, as scary as it sounds. An adult person can lose up to 100 strands a day, which is nothing significant compared to about 150,000 strands of hair on his scalp.

There is no reason to worry even when there is a lot of loss, because the human body has natural mechanisms for replacing lost strands. The problem happens when the loss is due to of some disease.

More common among women, pathological hair loss is usually related to thyroid deficiencies, iron deficiency, and infectious and autoimmune diseases, but can also be a side effect of chemotherapy or hormonal changes during periods of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause. In addition, aging also makes hair thinner and thinner.
