Do men or women lose more hair per day naturally

Men actually shed more hairs per day because they have a shorter anagen cycle. Women can grow their hair much longer than men so they lose less per day and regrow less as well. Women can grow hair as long as 3 1/2 feet while men can’t and often grow their length to no more than 18 inches in length. That means that using the formula of 100,000 hair on the head for a typical Caucasian, if the hair is shed after anagen, the women with 3 1/2 feet length hair will lose about 50 hairs per day while the male who will grow to a length of 1 1/2 inches will lose up to 100 hairs per day.
