Hair Shedding – What is Normal?

Hair shedding, hair loss, and thinning is normal when it occurs in the natural growing, resting, and shedding of your bodies hair growth cycle. It is important to know, your growth phase is from two to seven years, transition is only two weeks, and the resting phase, which ends in shedding, lasts for three months. As hair goes through the cycle, most people lose between 50 and 150 hairs daily. When the hair shedding obviously increases, your normal hair cycle is malfunctioning, and it is time to seek out the cause. Causes of increased hair shedding range from hormonal (like male and female pattern hair loss or autoimmune disorders) to medical treatments to lifestyle changes.

The Causes of Hair Shedding – When to be Concerned

As mentioned, there are a number of causes for increased hair shedding, some easier to address than others. Wearing your hair in tight styles – ponytails, buns, braids, or cornrows – can damage follicles (your hair growth regulators) and result in greater shedding. Changing your hairstyle can help, as long as the follicles aren’t too damaged. Another cause of temporarily increased shedding is physical shock or extreme stress, such as occurs following giving birth or surgery, as well as other illnesses. Medical treatments, particularly those for cancer, can result in hair shedding, as can being deficient in vital nutrients. In each of these circumstances, the hair loss is usually temporary and hair growth will resume when the unique situations are addressed appropriately.

Other excessive hair loss may be permanent. Hormonal imbalances, from autoimmune disorders, thyroid issues, and menopause in women, can cause permanent hair loss. Other causes of abnormal shedding include male or female pattern baldness as well as scalp injuries. Age and genetics are also contributing factors in permanent hair loss.
