Hair Shedding or Hair Loss?

Smiling Couple With Nice Hair

It is understandable to worry about your hair falling out – especially if you come from a family of bald men. Hair shedding is normal, but there is a stage where the level of loss can become more of a concern. On an average day, between 50 and 100 strands of hair falling out is considered acceptable.

Hair Shedding

Stress is a leading cause of excess hair shedding. However, there are several other potential causes of more than a normal amount of hair falling out. If you have recently recovered from a health condition, it can result in shedding of hair.

Surgeries, pregnancy and childbirth and extreme weight loss can also trigger hair shedding. In all cases, you may not see a noticeable difference for a few months after the factors that caused the additional loss of hair.

Hair Loss

Hair loss is not the same as shedding. The former means that hair does not grow back, even if stress factors are removed or resolved. Most people consider hair loss a hereditary issue, but there are other potential causes. Side effects from drugs, immune conditions and certain types of hairstyles may result in people with no family history of hair loss becoming bald.

While it is useful to understand the difference between hair shedding and hair loss, the average person has no way of confirming if there is an issue until balding becomes obvious. If you want definitive answers, consulting with a hair loss specialist is recommended.
