There are many of us who are comfortable after losing their hair. But that is more a reflection of their tremendous confidence. If you are one of those who are worried about hair loss, please read on.
Hair growth cycle-
Our hair does not grow all together. We see our scalp full of hair and think that all hair is growing. But the truth is different. Hair grows, rests for sometime, and then falls and a new hair takes its place to grow. At any point of time about ninety percent of our hair is growing and the ten percent is either ready to fall or is falling. When we shampoo our hair, this falling hair sheds itself. Everyday we lose about 50- 100 strands of hair. That is perfectly normal. If that is causing any worry to you, stop. That is normal. The best person to tell you if you might be facing hair loss is your hair stylist. Get your scalp examined and find out if hair is thinning from any place or a patch is forming.

We should be more bothered about hereditary loss and alopecia aerta. I think that you have got a brief introduction to hair growth cycle and hair loss.
