For patients who are considering a hair transplant procedure, there are likely many different questions running through their heads. It is important to have every possible piece of information in order to make a well-informed decision regarding the surgery. Most patients pose the same queries and concerns to their hair transplant surgeon about the procedure.
Why am I losing my hair at all?
There are a number of reasons for hair loss, but the top cause has to do with a person's genetic makeup. In a vast majority of cases, the hair loss gene runs through a family, which is why the follicles begin to thin out. However, there is no shortage of factors that can affect the growth of healthy hair, from environmental influences to stress and even to what a person eats on a daily basis.
How much hair loss is more than normal?
On the average human head, there are roughly 100,000 strands of hair. Hair cycles between growth and rest phases, with about 100 to 150 strands entering the rest phase and falling out each day. This is not typically noticeable, as they will grow back within three months. However, should the loss become something you can see with the naked eye, this is not part of the hair's normal life cycle.
