You take pride in your hair. It is a part of who you are. It tells your story and shows your personality. Each strand of hair goes through a life cycle much like every other cell in your body. The typical lifespan of one strand of hair is 2 to 5 years. There's no need to panic if you see strands of your hair in the shower or sink. It is perfectly normal to lose about 50-250 hairs per day. You don't notice it because you have new hair growing to take its place. However, when you lose hair at a faster rate than it can grow back due to damaged hair follicles, this is defined as hair loss.
If this sounds like you, you aren't alone! Over 80 million Americans experience some type of hair loss. Hair loss is a very common occurrence in both men and women...even your favorite celebrities are not exempt from hair loss.
