How Much Hair Loss Is Normal?

Do you often lose hair throughout the day? Does your shower drain look like you cloned yourself?

A certain amount of hair loss is normal and expected (about 50-100 hairs each day). Beyond that, it could be a sign that something is wrong.
Some of the most common reasons for excessive hair loss include:
  1. Some drugs and medications: Ask your doctor if your prescriptions may be causing your hair to weaken or break.
  2. Harsh hair care products: Chemicals, fragrances and harsh ingredients can contribute to excessive hair loss.
  3. Harsh hairstyles or techniques that pull on your hair: If you wear your hair in tight buns, ponytails or certain protective styles a lot, it may contribute to hair loss. Excess direct heat may also contribute to hair loss. 
  4. Stress: During extremely stressful situations, you may experience hair loss. This is situational and should improve when the stress lessens.
  5. Poor Nutrition: Hair health is largely dependent on protein, vitamins, and fatty acids. Without these core nutrients, you are likely to experience premature hair loss. If you think your diet may be contributing to your hair loss, talk to your doctor or nutritionist to find a solution.
Actions to take are to:
  1. Revamp your hair care routine as needed. Skip the heat, add in deep conditioning treatments – like Enrich Moisturizer Styler + Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil SerumNourish Treatment Mask  and avoid all products with harsh chemicals and ingredients, including fragrances.
  2. Take a look at your lifestyle, including factors like your diet, stress levels, and hair care techniques that may be causing you to lose your hair and revamp. You may need to add supplements to your diet.
  3. If all else fails, talk to your doctor to make sure your hair loss isn’t an indication of health-related conditions. Hormone, vitamin and mineral levels may need to be checked.
