We all lose between 120-150 hairs a day. It’s natural for hair to fall out once it’s reached the end of its finite lifespan (roughly two to three years) to be replaced with new hair.
If your new hair becomes thinner and doesn’t grow as much, it can be a sign of early male pattern hair loss. This can often be seen at the edge of the hairline with shorter, thinner and wispier 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 separate to male pattern hair loss. These conditions can often be treated effectively with appropriate medical advice from your GP or through referral to a specialist.
