    Default Monitoring hair loss

    Good morning

    I read on here people referring to "shedding" and the like. Can someone explain to me what this means? My guess is it means you are losing hair at an accelerated rate, but how does one monitory this? I can tell when I have lost more than usual, but I think I would only be able to tell over a few days or a week?

    Also, some people on here say how many hairs they are losing a day. How on earth can you know this?

    It is normal to shed up to 100 hairs per day.

    To monitor your hair loss (or your hair loss treatment), take good quality photos of your self every two, three, four or six months. Depending on how aggressive your hair loss is. Hereditary hair loss is progressive. Treating hereditary hair loss is a slow process. You will not see much difference in time that is measured in days or weeks. You see the difference in time that is measured in months and years. The quality and consistency of the photos you take is very important.
