Everyone loses hair. In fact, it’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, according to theAmerican Academy of Dermatology. But what if it seems like there’s significantly more loss than that?
“Once you exceed that, you’re losing it at an abnormal rate,” says Dr. David J. Wong, clinical associate professor of dermatology at Stanford University. Contrary to popular notion, hair loss is not just a condition that men face: up to 40 percent of women in America also experience it.
