How Many Hairs Do You Shed Each Day?

Hair Loss

We all shed hair – I know I do. Everyone in our family seems to shed more than the average person (at least that’s what my better half says). But how much does the average person shed each day?

I was surprised to learn it varies more than you’d think. You can shed anything between 40 and 150 hairs per day. So, on the short end of that you could drop around 280 hairs a week, while on the longer side (where I seem to be) you can shed a little over a thousand hairs. Yes, I’m definitely up at that level!

Of course sometimes natural hair loss can end up reaching unnatural levels. Our range of hair loss products gives you the chance to combat these issues in order to make sure your hair looks as full and healthy as possible every single day.

This can over time lead to an extremely sparse amount of hair on the head. Continue reading
