Am I Going Bald?

Are you worried about how much hair you "shed" everyday? Don't stress. Everyone loses between 40 and 120 strands a day. People with fine hair tend to have more of it and therefore will lose more than their thicker-haired sisters.

What makes it fall out?

  • Your hair has a growth cycle (as if one cycle wasn't enough). Most of your hairs are on the same cycle, so that's why sometimes you feel like you're losing a lot, and other times you don't.
  • Poor diet can also be a cause. Get your iron levels checked. Take supplements or eat iron rich foods like oysters, beans, baked potatoes with the skin or Cream of Wheat.
  • Pregnancy can cause hair loss. Also going on and off the pill.
  • Certain meds can affect your hair too, so talk to your doctor if you think you're losing more than the normal amount.
