43 – Losing 50 to 100 hairs a day is NOT normal.
It is normal to lose 20 – 100 hair a day as 10% of your hair is always in resting OR fall phase. If you lose full length hair with a small white end denoting the root, this is telogen shedding which can grow back in the next 4 months cycle. If you get multiple small strands falling all over, this is hair breakage due to weak hair shafts. Hair breakage commonly occurs in nutritional deficiencies and hair abuse, perming, straightening, curling, use of chemicals, frequent coloring, exposure to excess heat or excess cold.
