HAIR BREAKAGE SHEDDING HAIR
Depending on our hair color, we have anywhere from 90,000 to 140,000 hairs on our head. It is believe that the on average we normally lose approximately 50 -100 hairs a day. Shed hair, hair breakage and hair balding are three different ways we have hair loss.
When our hair is at the end of it's natural growth cycle it naturally falls outs with a white bulb attached to it. After it falls out it usually takes up to 4 months before a new hair has fully sprouted in it's place. Shed hair are generally longer hair pieces where as hair that has broken off is shorter with no white bulb attached to it. As visible in the above picture of my hair, you can clearly see the distinct differences between these two.
