Are you noticing more and more hair loss?
Do you think you are losing more hair than you should be?
Most folks can lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. On the days when hair is washed, people can even lose up to 250 strands. Avoidance of washing and brushing in an attempt to keep the hair is often the first reaction.
Washing and brushing your thinning hair will not encourage it to fall out more rapidly than it already will, and in fact washing and brushing your hair and scalp will nourish your hair and increase blood flow which in turn supports hair growth!
One interesting way to look at the way hair grows is to picture it as a garden. How well it grows is completely the result of what is happening “underneath.”
If the garden has a bad growth cycle, you’ll be sure to notice that right away… much the same as your hair, you might start noticing hair loss because of things that interfere with the cycle – like medications, illness, hormone levels, and genetics. These things have the potential to stop hair from being formed properly.
Although hair loss may seem like a more prominent problem mostly in men, women are nearly as likely to lose, or have thinning, hair. Most women notice it in their 50s or 60s, but it can happen at any age and for a variety of reasons.

Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) is the most common cause, and it increases with advancing age. Yes, age gets the best of us all! This type of hair loss may begin in a woman's 40s, 50s, or 60s. Female-Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL), affects some 30 million women in the United States.
There are also other visual cues that women can look for over time. Although men’s hair tends to recede from the forehead or the crown of the head, women tend to notice thinning on the top third to one half of the scalp.
Women’s Hair Loss is typically hereditary, and genes inherited from the mother, father, or both can contribute to a Woman’s Hair Loss condition.
