Everyone wants voluptuous hair with plenty of movement and shine, so when you look down at the shower drain and see clumps of hair congregating there, you may worry that you’ll never have that. After all, people with magazine-worthy locks don’t lose a bunch of hair, do they?
As a matter of fact, they do.
Daily hair loss is completely normal at every age and for both men and women. There are over 100,000 hair follicles on every person’s head, and for new hairs to grow, old ones must fall out. At any given time, there are loose or already disconnected strands on your head, waiting for you to brush or wash your hair so that they can fall away. Because all the old strands fall away at once and during rigorous hair-care activity, it may seem like you’re losing a lot of hair, but the chances are that what you’re seeing is normal.
If you’re experiencing hair loss that seems more excessive than usual, including clumps falling out, patchiness or bald spots, talk to your primary care physician about using hair stimulating hair products, such as Revita. However, before you assume the worst, learn about how much hair loss is healthy, why hair falls out and what to do if you experience abnormal shedding.
