Hair shedding is a normal process that every single person goes through – scalp hair grows in cycles and in order to grow new hair, we have to shed the old one. For instance, most perfectly healthy people (especially women) lose between 50 and 125 hair strands every day. However, if you notice you’re losing more hair than that, you might be suffering from hair loss.
There are numerous reasons why your hair could suddenly start shedding more than normal. Some of these include:
- Eating disorder
- Sudden weight loss
- Hormonal imbalances
- Certain medications
- Hereditary hair loss
Excessive hair shedding doesn’t have to be a reason for worry though – in fact, you want to avoid worry and stress as much as possible. If your hair shedding persists, stay calm and talk to your doctor or dermatologist, but until then, try out some natural hair remedies. The one we’ve prepared for you might even fix the problem entirely!
