The average human scalp has around 100 000 hair follicles. In a person’s lifetime, each follicle grows about 20 hairs. Average hair loss is 100 strands a day. The absence of hair is called alopecia, also known as baldness.

What is regular cycle of hair growth and hair loss?

The normal period of hair growth is for 2 to 3 years. And it grows per 1 centimeter per month. About 90 % of the head hair is growing only one time. And the rest 10 % is in a resting phase. This hair, after 3-4 months, falls out and in its place the hew hair starts to grow.
Losing hair every day is normal. But, if the falling of hair is more than normal, (more than 100 strands a day) it is a concerning issue.
