How much hair loss is normal?

Its natural to lose between 120-150 hairs a day. Hair falls out naturally once it’s reached the end of its finite lifespan of two to three years. It is then replaced with new hair.

If your new hair is thinner and doesn’t grow as much, it can be an early sign of hair loss. This can often be seen at the edge of the hairline with shorter and thinner hairs.

However, if you notice that you have increased and excessive amounts of hair falling out - i.e. in handfuls or small clumps. This may be due to a medical condition unrelated to male pattern hair loss. You should seek medical advice from your primary GP or a specialist.
