Hair Follicles And Normal Hair Loss

An average human body contains roughly five million hairs, with 100,000-150,000 being on the scalp. Hair follicles are all generated before birth, and remain constant throughout life. Not all follicles become active, and some lose their hair production capacity through time. Active follicles normally go through a life cycle, which includes a growth phase, followed by a transitional phase, and then a resting phase. These cycles can be as long as five years and come to an end when the hairs are actively shed. Shedding of anywhere from 50 to 150 hairs per day is normal. Unfortunately, in many people some of the hairs do not grow as long or as thick as did in previous cycles.
