Hair shedding is a part of every day life, yes it clogs up your shower drain, and yes, it means you have to vacuum every other day or your carpet turns into a hairy rug… But the fact is, hair loss is totally normal.

On average we lose around 80 strands a day, if you begin to shed significantly more than that or you notice they aren’t growing back, well, that’s when things start to get a bit hairy (soz, I couldn’t help it).

Firstly, there are different types of hair loss, genetic and reactive…

There’s a chance you’re genetically predisposed to hair thinning, which means you may see a progressive, gradual reduction in hair volume. “In these instances, certain hair follicles are sensitive to male hormones – and this sensitivity causes follicles to gradually shrink and produce slightly finer and shorter hairs with each passing hair growth cycle.

Genetic:

Reactive:

This means your hair loss is the result of a trigger. Excessive daily hair shedding (which is know as telogen effluvium) is not reliant on having a genetic predisposition, it occurs as the result of an internal imbalance or upset, such as a nutritional deficiency, severe stress, crash dieting or an illness.

There can be several factors behind hair loss such as environmental effects

aging

too much stress,

excessive smoking,

nutritional deficiencies,

hormonal imbalance,

genetic factors,

scalp infections,

use of wrong or chemically enriched hair products,

certain medicines and medical conditions like thyroid disorder,

autoimmune diseases,

polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS),

iron-deficiency anemia,

chronic illnesses

Licorice Root
