I’ve always read that we lose 50-100 hairs a day but how much of that hair comes from the scalp or do we really lose 50-100 hair from the scalp? It would certainly explain the 30+ strands of hair that gets caught on my comb whenever I brush my hair.
We typically lose 100 scalp hairs each day… and most of that loss may occur when you are outside with the wind blowing through your hair doing your everyday activities. We are born with approximately 100,000 hairs on our scalp. While you may be losing 100 scalp hairs a day, your body is also growing 100 scalp hairs that you cannot see to keep things on a balance.
If you’re seeing 30+ hairs each time you comb your hair, I have to wonder if you’re wearing a hat or using gel/wax that could trap the hair that would normally fall out during the course of your day. Or perhaps you’ve got some sort of hair loss.
