Hair loss can be devastating, both for men and women. Everyone will lose some hair each day. Normally, humans can lose a hundred strands of hair per day. There are three phases of hair growth, the growth phase (anagen), resting phase (catagen), and fall out phase (telogen). Therefore, the loss of hair is a natural thing, and it is a cycle of hair growth.
If the hair loss has exceeded the normal limit (100 strands/day), then it can be categorized as ‘hair loss’, and require special attention to prevent baldness.
