According to a recent study by the American Academy of Dermatologists, it’s normal to lose 50 to 100 strands of hair a day. But if you think you’re losing more than the usual, there could be a reason why you’re experiencing that. Most of the time, thinning hair comes naturally with aging. On the other hand, increased hair loss can also be a result of stress or an underlying health condition. So when you think you’re shedding more hair than usual, go see your doctor ASAP.
Meanwhile, using the wrong products can also be another reason why you’re experiencing thinning hair. Hair tends to start thinning when it’s unhealthy and damaged; this is why switching to gentler hair products, which can also thicken fine hair by nourishing the hair follicles, can help prevent further damage.
