You don’t have to put your hands on your head. The first thing you need to know is simple: hair loss is perfectly normal. Because hair strands also have a life cycle – now they are growing, now at rest, now they fall so that new strands are born in their place. Thus, they are continually renewing themselves.

At any given moment, about ten to fifteen percent of our wires are in their resting phase. That is why this hair renewal makes us lose between 50 to 100 hairs per day . And believe me, this is nothing. An adult person has, on average, 90 thousand and 140 thousand hair strands. And for each hair that falls, another one will be born in that same follicle.

When should we be concerned? When the fall becomes more pronounced than normal.

The different types and causes of hair loss

There are several types of hair loss, and not all ask for the same concerns. There is the occasional drop that can be associated with only a few periods of time – this is the case with postpartum, stress, anxiety and, of course, the changes of the season, especially in the beginning of autumn and the end of winter. But there is also hereditary hair loss, which results from the genetic heritage; the fall associated with lack of nutrients or the result of drastic diets; and the fall that results from medications or diseases, such as thyroid disorders.

What is the difference between hair loss in women and men?

In men, the most common cause for hair loss is hereditary – it is androgenetic alopecia that usually begins with a recoil of the hairline at the temples (the “entrances”, as we are used to say), which then begins extending to the top of the scalp.

In women, hair loss is rarely hereditary and most of them notice hair loss after menopause. Almost all women experience occasional spikes in stressful situations, after pregnancy, due to hormonal, thyroid disorders and during the so-called seasonal fall period.

When should we “attack” hair loss?

Whenever she stops having a so-called normal fall. That is, whenever it does not happen during the periods mentioned: postpartum, stress, seasonality, hormonal disorders … In women, hair loss translates into a decrease in the volume and density of the hair. It is here that treatments should be sought, such as shampoos and supplements that act inside the hair bulb and favor the fixation, strengthening and growth of hair.

The anti – hair loss shampoo from Pilexil contains extract of Serenoa Serrulata, which manages to inhibit the enzyme responsible for accelerating the capillary cycle, and also Zinc PCA, which acts against the enzymatic mechanisms that intervene in hair loss. It also has a formula that supplies the scalp with vitamins and leaves the hair stronger and more resistant.

How to spot an unusual drop:
