Hair fall is quite embarrassing and finding strands stuck to your clothes just makes it worse. But the good news is that if you treat hair loss early, the chance of re-growth is much higher. Losing 50-80 strands of hair is normal. In some cases, it might go up to 120-150 strands but anything above that could mean that you are beginning to go bald.
Take a small chunk of hair (approximately 80 strands) in your hand and tug on them. If 5-10 strands fall of it’s normal, but if it’s more than that you should consult an Ayurvedic doctor for treatment.
