Like skin cells, which renew and are shed daily, the hair follicle also sheds strands of hair. It's in our DNA, and while there are average cycles, our hair strands are programed to be released, so that a new strand will replace it. Think of eyelashes or body hair.. each person has different amounts and length and thicknesses. Hair and nails are the last places to be fed in our bodies and therefore are good indicators to what is going on within us, that is out of the norm.
The average shedding of a head of hair is said to be 100 strands a day. Do take into consideration what is normal for you, and that if you wear longer hair the shedding will be more obvious simply due to it's length.
