On any given day, a woman spends a good deal of time on her hair: washing, drying, curling, clipping, brushing, and styling. And nobody wants to see the drain clogged with hair or witness clumps of it in the brush. Our hair is our crown, and it's hard to watch it crumble and fall into the sink. But some amount of shedding (around 15-100 strands per day) is normal.
The life cycle of a person's hair is an intricate process. A typical person has 100,000 hairs on their head. At any given time, between 80-90% of our locks are growing through their life cycle, and the rest are either in resting mode or shedding. The growing process is called the anagen phase, and your hair can grow about a centimeter a month during this phase. The hair stops growing in the catagen phase, and this is about 1-2 percent of your hair. In the telogen phase, your hair is at rest and ready to fall out. With this life cycle in mind, it is perfectly normal to lose around 100 strands of hair a day. That is a tiny percentage of the total amount of hair on your head.
If you go beyond that hair shedding percentage, however, this could be problematic. Experts assert that if you lose more than 125 strands a hair a day, you may have a condition called telogen effluvium. This means that you have excessive hair loss. Although this seems like a terrible problem at first, there are many natural reasons for this condition and many ways to solve it.
Although no one wants to see excessive hair in the shower drain, it happens more than you think. There are several examples of how stress causes hair loss, and it can even be "positive stress."
For the most part, hair shedding is normal, and when the hormonal changes or life stressors end, your hair growth will get back to normal. There are a few things you can do to ensure healthy hair.
No matter what the cause for hair loss, it can certainly be disconcerting. But for most people, it is a natural process that occurs in order to complete the life cycle of your hair. If you eat well, sleep well, and try to live a stress-free life, even your hair will thank you!
