The Difference Between Normal Hair Loss and a Chronic Issue

August 10, 2015 1 min read

From washing out hair to brushing it, to running our fingers through it to keep the knots out, we  get our hair everywhere! It's in our drains, on our floors, in our cars ... and sometimes in our food. Sometimes, when we're cleaning up, we gather the amount of hair that's fallen from our heads and sort of freak out. It can't be normal to have that much hair building up in your hairbrush, right?   Apparently it is! According to trichologist (trained scalp expert) Anabel Kingsley, the average person loses between 60 to 100 hairs a day. But why do you we lose so much hair?! Because it is a non-essential tissue, it’s very sensitive to factors such as stress. Bad breakup? Late nights at the office? Not eating enough? Get the flu? All of these can lead to excess strands straying from your scalp, so if you notice more hair floating around than usual, consider if any of these issues are taking place in your life. “The good news is that as long as your system has recovered and you continue to take care of yourself, there’s no cause for concern,” Kingsley confirms. So when should you actually be worried about your mane letting loose? Kingsley explains that “If excessive hair shedding continues for longer than three months, seek the advice of a dermatologist or trichologist.” You may be suffering from chronic hair loss as opposed to typical day-to-day hair loss. Deficiencies in iron, vitamin D and vitamin B12, and hypo or hyperthyroid complications can all be causes of long-term hair loss. Have you ever suffered from chronic hair loss?
